Il Gufo is in an amazing setting, surrounded by forest and hills with beautiful views from all aspects. The rustic feel to the accommodation works perfectly with the environment, nature is right on the doorstep. The beautiful swimming pool is very cleverly placed, away from the farmhouse just a short stroll away, with the sun shining until late evening, it...

After a first stay in 2002 we returned to the Gufo farmhouse for a week at the end of July 2015. This time we stayed at the "Stalla" appartment. The appartment offers basic comfort for 4 but everything you need is available.(altough a bigger oven and coffee making facilities for 4 would be appreciated) It takes about 10 minutes on...

We spent a magical week at Il Gufo Farmhouse. Incredibly relaxing with superb views of the surrounding countryside. Plenty to do, from exploring nearby hills on foot to day trips to cities such as Florence and Lucca. There's also a good sized swimming pool a few minutes walk from the house. The drive up from San Marcello takes a little...

Great family vacation. We just returned from 7 days at ilguffo and had a fantastic time. The weather wasn't great at the start so the pool didn't get that much action but as a location it was fantastic. We used it to explore the small towns around San Marcello Pistoiese and go for some good walks. Sandro was great. Would...

“There are 4 apartments in the house - two on the upper storey and two on the lower storey. We (two parents and two adult children) booked rather late and the only available apartment was the smaller one on the lower storey (Il Gufino) - and it suited us very well. We made full use of the garden, BarBQ etc as well as the swimming pool (which is 100 metres away in a spot that catches the sun from about 8 am until 8 pm - great for early morning swims and evening drinks).”

“The cottage was extremely cold at night, even during our stay in June when temperatures were hitting mid-twenties during the day. As the cottage was in the mountain, I would recommend warm sleepwear. The cottage is self catering so it is not cleaned during the week stay. You definitely need a car (4x4 ideally) as the road is steep and rocky!!!”

“We liked our apartment (Il Gufino) as we had a lovely little area outside on the grass with a fantastic view and room to sunbathe. We felt it was the best in this respect, the others didn't have as much space outside however ours was probably one of the most basic inside.”
