The Bed & Breakfast La Casina di Parrana was born by pure chance!
It was originally a farmhouse, built in 1920, which in its day had three fireplaces for heating the rooms, a single bathroom and a pigsty inside the house. And here for some years was located the only baker of the Village . During the Second War World the Casina was witness of the passage of tanks, caravans of Americans and it was also a victim of bombings. You can still see the signs if you know where to look.
The current garden was nothing more than a wild meadow downhill , where nature had taken over without any order and rule.
For me it was love at first sight: working in the fashion industry and always on the go, I stumbled across this corner of paradise hidden among the green hills of Tuscany by chance. I not only chose it as a home, but also decided to turn it into accommodation to host new friends and share with them part of their travel.
We share emotions that only travellers can feel and sometimes we create bonds that enrich us and open up doors to other travels! And this is our great satisfaction!
I look forward to sharing all these riches with you: welcome to our HOME!
The Bed & Breakfast has bright, comfortable double bedrooms, simply and tastefully furnished. Towels have been bought now adays…but you will sleep wrapped by linen linen embroidered by hand, owned to my family in a past time and witnesse of ancient love stories. Close your eyes and listen to their whispers.
Rooms are equipped with a minibar, heating during the winter months, a bathroom with a shower cubicle and a hairdryer. Free Wi-Fi is available. On request you can have your room cleaned up and refreshed daily and a the laundry service.
It is difficult to imagine the garden as it was originally. At the time, there was a small vineyard producing enough wine for the owners’ needs and the garden was just an uncultivated slope.
However the 22 olive trees are still silent witnesses of the Casina’s secrets, together with all fruit trees scattered around the garden. During the renovation of the house in the winter of 2012, we decided to give it a completely different look, creating a panoramic terrace and a veranda that would allow guests to enjoy their breakfast in the shade, surrounded by beautiful scenery.
