'La Contea' is a beautiful, characteristic, detached Tuscan villa, part of
an ancient farm which dates back to the 15th century and used to belong to
the well-known Visani-Rassinesi family, which gave Rassina some of it's most

Thanks to the villa's central location, it is easy to reach Casentino's main
tourist sites with public transport.
The Casentino valley is rich of history, it's many castles and important

Casentino is a very mystical area and has a number of important holy sites,
