The proximity of the thermal waters and the village of San Casciano dei Bagni makes staying in this corner of Tuscany a unique experience unlike any, a place to rediscover the tranquility of the past as time here has no dimensions.

We are able to offer comfortable accommodations and hospitality to families or groups of up to 14 guests.

During the winter time, the coziness of the house, enriched by the warmth of the fireplaces, makes the atmosphere feel magical.
