The large bedroom sleeps two with the possibility of a third bed and there is a view from the window of one of the quaint stone-paved walkways. The small bathroom with large comfortable shower offers a view on the valley from its tiny window. In front of the house is a small terrace, situated on the stone-paved walkway. It is set with a table, chairs, and umbrella. As the apartment is on the ground level, the windows have wrought-iron grating for safety. The entrance is in common with Casa Teresa, which is one floor up. Casa Martina and Casa Teresa may be rented together as an excellent solution for two couples who wish to have their privacy. Free wifi available for guests in all the indoor and outdoor areas and private parking is within the estate or in a nearby area. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: IT06653710480More

About the neighbourhood
The Borgo del Castello di Porciano offers the peace and hospitality of the upper valley of the Arno River, Casentino. In this small village, at the foot of its Castle, you will be able to experience and explore the natural and artistic beauty of this lesser known corner of Tuscany. The village stands at 600 meters above sea level, and is only one mile away (1.5 km) from the lovely small town of Stia, built where the Arno and Staggia rivers meet. The Romanesque Church in the square surrounded by archways is one of the most beautiful pievi (parish churches) of the Casentino. In the summer you will be able to enjoy the park along the river where you can sun yourself, wade or swim in the clear waters of the Arno river. The sources of the Arno are very near Stia so the water is still clean and pure.
Getting around
Car is mandatory to enjoy the area! Public means of transportations are also available and work pretty well, but they don't reach some of the most interesting sights (as hilltop old city centers, etc.).
