I live here in Casentino Valley with my wife Francesca (owner of another holiday villa). I spent ten years in Venice where i studied (economy) and i worked in a contemporary art gallery. Four years ago me and Francesca decided together to came back in Tuscany, the place we were born, and our lifes are changed again. Now we are very happy to live in this peacefull valley and i'm proud to give you hospitality in my villa. Welcome in Villa Carda!
Andrea purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Andrea chose Castel Focognano
My father bought the property in 1978 when it was a little more than a ruin. He restored Villa Carda with a lot of passion and love and, during my childhood, i spent with my family all summers there. It was a magic place for me! During my university years (the villa was hardly ever occupied) so we decided to do something. From 2001 Villa Carda is a holiday villa and it gived hospitality to a lot of happy and satisfied guests from all over the world. Why i love this area? Because i born here, of course, but not only! This area is very characteristic of Tuscany but is also far away from the crowd of other touristic place of the region. Casentino valley preserve the genuine aspect and way of life of Tuscany. And it's also less expensive then the rest of Tuscany.

Heaven in Tuscany!
The most wonderful rental experience my family has ever had! Andrea, Antonio, & Francesca have created the perfect place to get away from it all. I cannot think of a single thing missing or forgotten. Villa Carda is beautifully and tastefully appointed. The views are spectacular. Meals prepared by Andrea and Francesca were excellent.
Wine tasting at Colle Bereto was fantastic. The only negative thing we experienced, was having to leave. Andrea, Antonio, & Francesca, thanks so much for making our holiday so wonderful. Until next time, ciao,!
Perfect in Every Way!
We were made to feel like family from the very beginning. Andrea went to great lengths to ensure our stay was perfect in every way... from shopping for groceries to stock the fridge before our arrival, to providing fresh baked goods in the mornings to helping us plan our day trips for the week. Andrea and his beautiful wife Francesca even made the most incredible meal for our group one night at the villa that was our best meal (by far!) of the entire vacation! This was no ordinary meal, Francesca is a certified chef with her own restaurant and they made a multi-course meal that was the icing on the cake for our perfect vacation!
Also impressive was how quickly Andrea was able to make plans on a moment's notice. He even arranged for a special day for our group to have a hired driver and a private tour of a beautiful winery in the Chianti region, complete with an elegant lunch and tasting in an elegant chandelier-clad cellar. He and his family made this such a special trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary... and one we will never forget! This was, without a doubt, our best vacation ever!
The villa was immaculate, nothing to fault it. The owner was very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. I would highly recommend this villa for a lovely stay in Tuscany.
Perfect for our family of 4 couples who 2 babies. Beautiful location and attention to detail.
Our hosts Andea and Francesca were delightful and made our stay very special. The property is in a beautiful location and has many lovely features like the gym and jacuzzi. We loved all the games that were available for us. I would have liked the pool to have been warmer and my husband who is very tall found the pool too shallow. Overall we were very happy indeed.
Superb family accommodation.
Fantastic property and Andrea and his family made us feel at home. The catering was superb. Thoroughly recommend a visit.
A beatiful house in a beatiful surrounding. Very nice furnitured with everything you need for holiday. We have been there with 3 families, 6 adults + 6 kids, but there is enough space for one family more. Everything is fine, the pool, the spa, the garden. The owner is erveryday there to look after the house, and if you want he is cooking for you, what is absolutely great. You don´t have any neighbours and the view outside is absolutely astonishing. The next village Castel Focognano is 5 minutes away by car, but you won´t find there any supermarkets or restaurants. The nearest place to get some supplies or to eat something is Rassina - 10 minutes by car. If you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful place, with all conveniences you need, this house is perfectly.
Hope to see you again in Villa Carda
