About this listing
A very quiet hamlet, no shops but only itinerant merchants that bring bread, fruit and some dry goods: an amazing and quaint experience. In front of the flat, a small church dating late 19th century, beautiful and romantic with its old belltower
A romantic cosy little flat built from an old barn fully renovated and stylishly furnished in keeping with the true Tuscan tradition, an ideal hideaway for a relaxing holiday.
The stone-made house and its garden are completely fenced. In the garden you can eat, sun-bathe, look at the wonderful view on the castle and the valley, or just sit and talk to the owners about Tuscan traditions.
In the afternoons you can learn Tuscan cookery with Grand-Ma Brunetta and taste traditional specialties or learn Italian with Norma, while in the evenings you can listen to Grand-Pa Silano playing his old accordion, or Volfango playing his cello. Soooo romantic!!
Small animals are allowed. Fenced (website hidden), washing-machine, private kitchen and bathroom, breakfast. Bikes for rent, swimmingpool.
Norma and Volfango bought the house in 2001 and started its renovation, trying to respect its original shape and characteristics. The name Casa al Moro comes from the old mulberry tree standing in the garden, which in the 19th century was the food for silkworms, but now helps you stay cool during hot summers, lying on sunbeds, reading or chatting with friends.
According to the season you can taste local organic cherries, strawberries, salad, tomatoes, all of them coming from the garden of the house. Really delicious and so different from fruit and vegetables coming from supermarkets!!
You can spend your time walking and wandering on the hills, looking for mushrooms and blueberries, or simply watching local birds and wild animals. At night, if you drive up the hill, you might see a fox crossing the road, or a mother wild boar with her babies running after her, or even the royal deer with its enormous horns...
Respect for house and furniture, respect for nature and animals
