Casa Martina is a romantic holiday cottage situated in beautiful and undiscovered corner of Tuscany, the Casentino Valley, between Arezzo and Florence. Enjoy the beauty and peace of the ancient hamlet of Porciano with its stone paved walkways, centuries old church and breathtaking views. The cottage is situated in the shadow of the castle of Porciano, on the remains of the castle walls. Lovingly restored and decorated by the castle owner, this fully equipped cottage is the perfect place from which to explore the natural and artistic treasures of Tuscany and the Casentino Valley. Small and comfortable apartment at ground level, cool in the summer and very pleasant, located in the upper part of the village near the Castle. The entrance is in common with Casa Teresa, which is one floor up. ...Casa Martina is a romantic holiday cottage situated in beautiful and undiscovered corner of Tuscany, the Casentino Valley, between Arezzo and Florence.

Getting around
