Our medieval country House is named HOUSE ON THE ROCK because was built on a part of Casentino's mountain. Historic documents describe it at a Camaldolese Monastry in the XI A.C.. Many architectural featuresand details prove this origin. It was only natural to turn Monasterial hospitalityinto a warm is to be a warm and cozy home whereyou can find comfort and relaxation along the famous VIA ROMEA (the old main road linking Rome with Florence and north Italy).
With a complete restoration done to return that original charm and beauty of the region to the HOUSE ON THE ROCK, you can experience the conforting atmosphere.
We prepare for your arrival, thanks to my wife Marina's cooking passion with a great pizza in the firewood oven.
Our guests enjoy a great breakfast made with our homemade marmelade. Marina prepares them with passion and...

Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Wonderful retreat in the Italian countryside. We stayed for a wedding celebration.
Our bedroom was beautiful and we were lucky enough to have our own ensuite (some are shared between two bedrooms).
The pool is beautiful, but I especially enjoyed the tranquility of the nearby gazebo.
Kitchen is reasonably well equipped (the blender does not work and being there with a load of Brits we competed for mugs for our morning cuppa! - minor issues)
This is a very special place, highly recommended for a family / group of friends. The hosts were very helpful. We would love to return.

Management response:

thank you for your staying at Casa sullaroccia and appreciating so much our property!see you soon.

About the neighbourhood
It's very difficult to find an ancient and well restored BORGO like ours where is possible to stay with other 25/30 relatives and friends being absolutely confortable. 7/8 families may share the property having their own privacy and sharing only the free time and happy moments. Moreover in our Borgo is possible to spend free time in many,many,many ways. Play soccer, volley, beach tennis, swimming, hiking,bird watching ect...every sport in our property garden Close to the property (25 mn driving) you can go to swim in a beautiful river with clean and fresh water or , if you prefer, in our panoramic swiming pool inside tuscan olive grove. Every morning we like spend time looking in the silence the pink colour of dawn.
