a picturesque corner of the villageThe Borgo del Castello di Porciano offers the peace and hospitality of the upper valley of the Arno River, Casentino.
The owner of the Castle of Porciano has restored and decorated some antique tuscan cottages built in the area once occupied by the age-old walls which surrounded the Castle.

The stone cottages have been renovated respecting their original look and decorated with family furniture which gives a feeling of coziness and warmth. 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 cottages of the "Borgo del Castello di Porciano" are located in the higher part of the village of Porciano, nearest the Castle.

The village stands at 600 meters above sea level, and is only one mile away (1.5 km) from the local town of Stia. Stia is a lovely small town 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. In the mountains around Stia and Porciano the National Park Reserve known as the Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi offers a number of hiking trails and walks.

Available for guests, free wifi in all the indoor and outdoor areas and private parking within the estate or in a nearby area.

Staff speaks English and Italian and can provide our guests with all the assistance, advice and services they might need in order to make their stay as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
