Welcome to Casa Marzi


Although completely restored with new plumbing, wiring and heating system, the original features in the house have been retained. The original "cotto" floors have been restored and most rooms have original timber beams. The original stone sink is a now a garden feature but there is a new sink and dish washer. The house is situated in an elevated position, allowing a light breeze in summer, with a view of the surrounding valley and mountains.

The accommodation is comprised of:

3 Bedrooms 

  • Bedroom with king size bed with balcony seating area giving lovely views over the valley to the mountains. 
  • Twin bedded room with window giving same views. 
  • Studio with two full size single beds that are stored as a wrought iron bed settee. 

Extra bed accommodation 

  • The lounge has a good quality double bed settee. All mattresses are Pierre Cardin. 

Other rooms 

  • lounge with fully opening patio doors to gardens, pool and seating areas. 
  • large divided kitchen/dining room with open fire.
  • 2 bathrooms with showers - one on each floor.  


All rooms are fully furnished. Most of the furniture has been hand crafted in pioppo (poplar) by the local firm of Lorenzini that exports to Europe and the USA. There are place settings for 12.

All windows have the traditional wooden shutters of the area plus mosquito nets or equivalent.

The house has full central heating for winter use. There is an open fire in the dining area.

Adjoining the house is a traditional forno. This is an outdoor wood burning oven for cooking pizzas and bread. It is a good idea to put a casserole or chicken in after the pizza or bread, as once lit, it remains hot for several hours. Instructions and recipes are in the House Book.

Swimming Pool

The 10x4m pool is well hidden from the lane being on the third level just a few steps from the house. It can be lit at night.
