If you are searching for quiet and relaxation in an Italian villa located in a private country setting. This ancient Tuscan farmhouse is meticulously restored to a high degree of luxury offering many modern amenities…. Your search is over. Casa al Vento has all of this and much much more...

Located in the Casentino Forest one hour south of Florence, our property is comprised of 15 acres (5+ hectares) of pristine Tuscan woods and farm land. The land is blessed with wild birds; some found only in this area. Wild boar (cinghiale), deer, rabbit, fox and pheasant make their home at Casa al Vento. Gentle breezes caress the air affording us our own built in air-conditioning system even when the land below is caught in the heat of summer. Numerous trails wind through our Tuscan woods giving many opportunities for our visitors to explore during their Tuscan vacation and enjoy the ever changing panoramas available in such abundance. An excellent riding stable is at a farmhouse just below us. This provides another possibility for exploration of this amazing area.

The villa is nestled near the top of the hill that is the land of Casa al Vento. The moment you drive through the ancient iron gates and up the viale of cypress to the house you know you have arrived at a very special place. The views from every vantage point cast a spell over you: one more breath taking than the next!! It's as though you are at the top of the world!!! Come visit us for your next vacation in Italy soon.

We offer two ways to enjoy your stay at Casa Al Vento. The first is a normal rental where you occupy the house and are on your own to plan, drive, and see the area. The second way is a concierge stay that we call BE MY GUEST. This is a week spent with the owner (Carol) in residence. She will custom plan your week according to your desires and interests and what is going on in the area at the time of your stay. Italian breakfast will be served every morning, Carol will be driver and guide for your excursions, and you can choose from a vast array of activities and experiences that could only be yours in this kind of stay.
