“Quiet piece of paradise.”

This is our second time staying at Il Gufo and we enjoyed it even more this time. The road has been improved getting to the property so it made access to the property much easier, it is a short drive to the center of San Marcello. Everything is provided, kitchen utensils, linens and a washing machine. Il Gufo exemplifies what it is like to stay in a true Tuscan farmhouse. We love the solitude and peacefulness of the property and in the distance you can hear the church bells ring, a true Italian off- the-beaten track vacation. If you enjoy non-touristy places, then Il Gufo in San Marcello is the perfect place.

“Lovely rustic mountain farmhouse!”

We booked this wonderful property online. As with all online bookings, it is sometimes a crap-shoot between the pictures/descriptions and reality. Il Gufo exceeded our expectations. We arrived in San Marcello and the proprietor of the local coffee shop called the owner, Sandro, and he arrived 15 minutes later to guide us up to the farm house. The road to the farm is rough but it adds to the feeling of quiet isolation of the property.
Once we arrived we loved the clean rustic rooms. Great care has been put into the renovation, preserving the old feeling while providing modern amenities. The view over the valley was beautiful and the abundance of wildlife such as wild boar, deer and owls made for great evenings sitting outside. The temperature in the area during our stay was very pleasant compared to the oppressive heat in the southern plains. We spent much time touring the beautiful countryside and then returning for swims in the pool.
During our stay, Sandro checked in several times and he was always available to help with any questions we had regarding the local area and services.
The nearby town of San Marcello is wonderful, with beautiful architecture and kind, smiling people. We made many local friends during our stay, despite our limited Italian language skills.
A wonderful location and we will be going back next year!
