Just to say that it is a bit far from the beautiful city of Radicofani and the road to get there is not the best... but I have to say that it was worth, no doubt!

About the Host, Andrea
Ciao, sono Andrea e vivo a Milano, ma appena posso cerco di evadere dalla Metropoli con la mia compagna e nostro figlio, scappando in campagna, al mare o in montagna, insomma ovunque.
Nei nostri viaggi non cerchiamo il lusso e gli agi sofisticati, ma l'essenziale per trascorrere vacanze piacevolmente indimenticabili e a stretto contatto con la cultura e la natura del luogo.
Anche come host ritengo fondamentale offrire l'essenziale per poter godere al massimo del territorio e della natura che lo (website hidden) e mio fratello Valerio abbiamo infatti riportato alla luce un antico casale risalente all’inizio dell‘800 e situato in un contesto paesaggistico di notevole impatto, facendo particolare attenzione al recupero dei materiali originali. Il nostro augurio è quello che tutti i nostri ospiti possano apprezzare appieno il valore della campagna Toscana.
Hi, I'm Andrea and I live in Milan, but as soon as I can try to escape from my big city with my partner and our son, running away in the countryside, by the sea or on the mountains.
In our travels we do not look for luxury and sophisticated accommodations, but what is essential to spend pleasant and unforgettable holidays in close contact with the culture and the nature offered by the places that we are visiting.
Even as a host, I consider mandatory to provide the most comfortable way to enjoy the environment and the landscape .With my brother Valerio we have completely renewed an ancient farmhouse dating back to 800 and set in a landscape of great impact, paying particular attention to the recovery of the original materials, as volcanic rocks and the famous tuscan "terra-cotta". Our hope is that all our guests can fully appreciate the value of the true Tuscan countryside. "Casetta di Ugolino" is placed in the heart of Val d'Orcia, declared "UNESCO World Heritage" since 2004 , you will enjoy two hectars of this park exclusively for you.
