This house is spectacular, gloriously isolated, and quiet, with commanding views of the valley. Plenty of outdoor space for relaxing, and refreshing pool. Very helpful hosts, with plenty of suggestions and good instructions for the house. Within easy reach of Florence, Pisa, Lucc…

Casa a Corte is beautiful. It is in a stunning location surrounded by hills with olives and vines. The house is typical of a Tuscan farm house very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The pool and garden are well maintained and very restful. We saw deer foxes and badgers close …

Response from Hugh:
Hi Mark, Many thanks for your kind feed back. We are glad you enjoyed Antica Locanda; it is a really special family run trattoria and a favourite of ours and neighbour Sir Paul Smith, and local boy Rugani who may be joining Chelsea from Juve for £38million. We have a pine martin nest in the tall pines below the house and also have red/ black squirrels plus lots of wild boar. Cinghiale are very secretive and we only see them at night with car headlights. We had the option to tarmac the road a few years ago but felt it may increase traffic. At the moment very few vehicles use the track. The gorge is beautifully cool and wonderful exercise after lots of pasta and a beautiful drive. Many thanks for being great guests. Thx H&H

Dear Hugh, thanks for the opportunity to rent the wonderful house Casa a Corte. It will never be deleted for our memory. Fantastic setting and almost a secret place in the mountains of Tuscany. We enjoyed all the moments where we found peace and good energy in the house and the b…

Dear Ulrik, It was a real pleasure having your family as our guests from our first correspondence through to your departure. We really enjoy renting our house to families with children as the garden and pool is the perfect place for children to run around and explore in the fresh air. Our children have always loved Casa a Corte so we like hearing stories about other families enjoying it too. We love your enthusiasm about Tuscany and your familiy holiday as it gives us the opportunity to discuss it’s beauty, restaurants and La Dolce Vita. You have been fantastic guests, thank you, Hugh

We had an amazing time here!!! Despite we were not the luckiest with the weather - some showers and thunderstorms in early May - we really could not complain about anything. Hugh's house matches the expectations you get out of the description: a beautiful and comfortable house in…

Brilliant to read, we’re so happy your families had such a good time. I like to suggest a few things to see and do but don’t want to spoil the excitement of guests making their own discoveries to suit their person tastes. As a lover of Tuscany I am glad you enjoyed it too. I hope this sets you up for a good long summer? Many thanks, Hugh

Wir haben mit unserer 3 Kindern wundervolle Wochen in Casa Corte verbracht. Das Haus liegt sehr idyllisch in den Bergen. Das Gelände ist etwas unwegsam und erfordert vorsichtiges Fahren. Dafür wird man mit einzigartiger Ruhe und herrlicher Lage belohnt. Das Haus bietet allen Kom…

Dear Jan & Aja, Die Marxsen sind eine ganz besondere Familie, die das Leben in vollen Zügen lebt und gerne erforscht. Sie sind die ideale Familie zum Gastgeber und ich habe es genossen, all ihre Geschichten über ihre Reisen zu hören. Wir hatten die Möglichkeit, unsere Strecke mit Asphalt zu asphaltieren, aber es war nicht im Sinne der Toskana und könnte mehr Fahrzeuge anziehen. Wir benutzen tatsächlich die untere Straße, die flach und meistens Beton und Asphalt ist. Danke, dass Sie der perfekte Gast und für Ihre Bewertung Hugh & Hazel sind

Hugh & Hazel, husband & wife duo plus their 2 children, fell in love with this stunning valley in the rolling hills of Tuscany, buying Casa A Corte in 2000. As soon as we saw the house in our beautiful valley we knew this was the house we had to buy. Both working as award winning…
