Casa Alta is set in a much-desired location on the beautiful hills in the heart of Romagna Toscana, an untouched region that is off the beaten track of most tourists.  It is located at the border of Foreste Casentinesi, a national park extending southward into Tuscany.  The town of Faenza is 28 km away and has been famous for its exquisite ceramics since the 14th century. On the north side of this peaceful and lush valley, guests will find the tiny Tuscan village of Lutirano; on the other side of the valley, 3 km down the hill into Romagna, is the village of Tredozio.  Tredozio offers guests lovely restaurants, shops, bars, banks, bakeries and a post office.  Casa Alta is just half way between Florence (Km 85) and Bologna (80 km).  Ravenna, capital of the world's finest Byzantine mosaics outside of Istanbul, is 45 km away.

Casa Alta is set atop the highest ridge of the Lorenzo Estate. The sun rises over the Romagna Apennines to warm the pool and the shaded breakfast loggia, and sets behind the Apennines of Tuscany that stretch out endlessly from the front of the house.  The villas of Casa Eleonora and Casa Caterina are very near Casa Alta.  Renting these properties together would work well for large groups and special events.

Originally a shepherd's house, Casa Alta was tastefully renovated in recent years. The restoration consists of two large accommodations that can be rented together or separately.  These are Casa Alta 1 on the ground floor and Casa Alta 2 on the first floor.  When rented together as Casa Alta, the two units can be connected through an internal staircase. Each unit sleeps 8 people, and together can accommodate up to 16 people in 8 double bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.

In the restoration the owners used the finest local materials - terracotta flooring, chestnut from their own trees, and tiles from the nearby factories of Faenza. Casa Alta has many modern comforts, but still maintains a traditional charm.

The villa has a large garden with furnished patio, gazebo, lounge chairs and a panoramic swimming pool (10x5 meters, depth 1.2-1.9 meters), which has a stunning view of the valley.

Interior Description:

The ground floor has an entrance hall and dining area, including a large table for 16 and a fireplace. There is also a large kitchen with refrigerator, freezer, oven, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, kettle and American coffee machine.  This kitchen and dining room are used when both of the apartments are rented together.  At the end of the room is an internal door that connects the two apartments.  On this level there is also a large laundry room with a washing machine, sink, iron and ironing board. 

Please note that this large kitchen is available only when the Casa Alta 1 and Casa Alta 2 are rented by the same group.  Otherwise, it will not be open.  When renting both of the apartments, guests will be allowed to use only the two kitchens located on the ground floor of the villa.  The third kitchen on the first floor will not be available.

Casa Alta 1: sleeps 8 people in 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. 

A large living/dining room with a fireplace, satellite TV, DVD, stereo, comfortable furniture, and ceiling fan has access to the garden. The dining room also has garden access and offers gorgeous views over the valley. It has a table that seats 8 comfortably. The brand new kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, microwave, and American style coffee maker. A hallway leads to two of the bedrooms. One is a double with ceiling fan; the other has two twin beds and a ceiling fan. Next to these bedrooms are two bathrooms, one with shower and one with tub and handheld shower. On the other side of the house is an additional bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with tub. This bedroom has garden access but no ceiling fan. A wooden staircase (15 steps) leads to the second floor, where the fourth bedroom, with twin beds and adjacent bathroom with shower, is located.

The facilities include central heating and a washing machine in the laundry area.  Two hours of housekeeping and a linen change are included on Friday or Saturday for stays of more than one week.
