About Andrea

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 1970

Why Andrea chose Poppi area

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 the the rest of Tuscany.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Monica Dapper in June 2011 from Seattle (USA)

“Had we known the property would be so beautiful and the owners so gracious, we would have stayed a second week.”

Carol Beaney in May 2011 (GB)

“Luxury 5* villa in beautiful Tuscan countryside”

Marjorie of Kraft/Herman family in August 2012 from Ontario (Canada)

“Magnificent. One of the best family holidays that we have ever had.”

The place was beautiful. It had everything you would want. The owners of the villa were so hospitable and welcoming. We very much enjoyed their company and the services they provided. If you are looking for the best of the best in Tuscany, Villa Carda is the place to be.

Stefan Reister in June 2012 from Munich (Germany)

“The perfect family retreat”

We stayed in Villa Carda for the 3rd year in a row and it feels like 'homecoming'. The villa itself is in a fantastic condition, well kept and renovated, but still in the beloved 'Tuscany' style. Each room has it's seperate bathroom (very clean and comfortable)
