A magical place of one-of-a-kind decor and unique location, for great comfort and privacy, on your way between Rome and Florence. A diamond in the rough, still undiscovered stop-over to add to your Italian itinerary.
If you have large groups, you can book up to 6 rooms and have a party!
Or enjoy the total peace and quiet of this retreat.

Dinner also available upon request.
Margherita, the heart and soul of this space, is there to assist.

My husband Marco is a retired professional yachtsman, and now a talented and passionate cook; and together we have been offering wine tours and pasta making classes since 1998 with the Accidental Tourist.
