casa francesca

Casa Francesca is a charming bed and breakfast in the mountain town of Loro Ciuffenna, near Arezzo, welcoming guests in a historical location, surrounded by nature and touched by the cooling waters of the Ciuffenna River. Loro Ciuffenna, which has become one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, is located in the enchanting Chianti area, in the hills of Pratomagno. The Casa Francesca is a residence dating back to the 1300s, which today still maintains the atmosphere of a gracious private home.

We are in the area of Chianti Aretino, the heart of Tuscany, a region with beautiful nature and landscapes. The present structure was once the Customs House, where the pilgrims paid duties to enter the town of Loro Ciuffenna. Today, Casa Francesca presents itself in a classical setting with elegant communal areas such as the hall with frescoes and a cozy breakfast room. The structure comprises six rooms, equipped with every comfort, overlooking the rooftops and serene banks of the Ciuffenna River.


More precisely, in the lower part of Castrum Lauri, where, beside the houses, there are shops and laboratories of craftsmen and tradesmen. This was the economic heart that pulsated around the small town square.

The first found relics of the residence date back to the 1300s. The frescoes in the living room and photos found during the various stages of restoration, are a further confirmation of its historical authenticity
