Castellare is an ancient building on the high hills that surround Florence (just 20km away). It is set on top of a private hill, invisible from the public street, and completely surrounded by nature. We offer just two accommodations this year, for we have opened an art etching laboratory too. Houses are even more warm and inspiring. The Stalla is our larger one, and is displayed on two floors. Upstairs two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom; downstairs a big open space with a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room area. The Stalla house is perfect for a family or a small group of friends. In restructuring it we tried to maintain its medieval flavour, so you will find an original stone floor and family pieces of furniture. And lots of art pieces, from well known artists we work with. Music, films and books are at your disposal for more inspiration. Outside the living room door there is a private garden with table and chairs for romantic outside dinner.
the Art possibility: Castellare Art is a new laboratory we have just opened in the Castellare location. We offer a unique service for the Artists, just out of Florence. They can come with loved ones in a holiday facility, in a magical and inspiring location, and at the same time, in the same spot, have maestro Lorenzo Bencini, art printer, realize their etchings in the most wonderful way. Individual seminars for professionals are also held, for a unique insight on the art of etching print.
