- English, French, Italian
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.

Andrea was a great host
We had a well traveled travel group of 11 and enjoyed our stay. The location, the villa and excursion tips from our host. Highly recommend!
Amazing stay in rural Tuscany
Our stay at Villa Carda was absolutely faultless. Andrea and the family were very lovely hosts and went over and above what was expected. We took the recommendations of the wine tour at Colle Berreto which was fantastic and we purchased some great wines to take home with us.
We also had a meal cooked for us in the villa on our last night and we are so glad we did. Well worth the money and a fab experience.
We will definitely recommend to friends and hope to stay again soon ☺️ X
Beautiful home in an amazing setting
Our stay was amazing in a beautiful home with excellent facilities. The views and garden are stunning, best enjoyed from the lovely pool. We highly recommend having a Tuscan meal, Andrea and Francesca made an absolutely delicious dinner and are wonderful hosts. This is a really great venue for a family gathering.
An exceptional experience
Villa Carda was the perfect place to call home during our stay in Tuscany. Great accommodations for gathering together after day tripping, as well as plenty of spaces to separate from the group for some private time. The extra creature comforts, attention to decorative details and upkeep elevated the experience. Andrea and Antonio were gracious hosts, responsive to requests and ready with recommendations for dining and destinations. A highlight of the stay was the amazing meal of local specialties prepared by Francesca and Andrea. This peaceful setting tucked away in the hills of the Casentino Valley is a gem.
Best Ever Villa
The villa was more than spectacular. Andrea and his Father Antonio were in touch everyday to make sure things ran to perfection. Antonio shared many ideas on places to go and see. We were not disappointed with any of them. Andrea and his wife Francesca came to the villa one evening and gave us a cooking class then finished the dinner served us and cleaned up everything before leaving for the evening. Andrea was also very helpful with getting my lost luggage to me.
The villa was perfect for the family of eight we had plenty of space for quiet time away from each other and ample space to enjoy each others company. Evenings by the pool was the perfect end to each perfect day. If you are looking at this property do not hesitate at all to book. You will never be disappointed. A car is a definite must for this Villa.
Thanks Andrea, Francesca and Antonio for a lifetime of memories.
