We wait for you at La Casina di Parrana, a Bed & Breakfast hidden among the green hills of Tuscany between relaxation and pleasure.
By us you will not find the mood and the accomodation of a hotel, but the simplicity and the comfort of your own home!
“The real journey of discovery is not to look for new lands but to have new eyes“ - Marcel Proust
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!
