Casa Castagna is located in the small hamlet of Fonaco in the east of Tuscany on a ridge of high ground with idyllic views on either side. The house faces south and, during the day, is bathed in warm sunlight. Glorious sunsets are viewed from the western floral terrace
The surroundings are of wooded hills with chestnut, oak and pine. The lower slopes are agricultural with an abundance of sunflowers, olives, vines and tobacco. Birdsong abounds, as does a variety of other interesting wildlife.
Two farms straddling the ridge road are passed on the way down to the local village of Monterchi. This medieval fortified hilltop village is just 5 km from the house and has all the shops, restaurants, bars and cafes needed for a happy and comfortable stay.
