          About: My name is Ron Wells and I have been visiting Porciano for over 22 years. Last year the owner of Castello di Porciano , Martha Corsi,asked if I would help her with the management of this magnificent place. Of course, I agreed . I live in small cottage in the shadow of the Castle from May1 - October31 of each year . I am available every day to help make your visit as pleasurable as possible I love Porciano very much and wish it to become a haven for those interested in the charm of such this special family residence . I think we can offer this as a special travel experience and unique place to relax and explore our special part of Tuscany.

          Why Stia:
          Comfortable, quiet and relaxing. Your chance to live in a restored medieval castle that once hosted Dante. Perfect location to explore the Tuscan countryside from Arezzo to Florence and return to wonderful evening meals prepared with local products.

          The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
          Beautiful vistas, quiet, very comfortable and private. Cleaning services , tourist information and day trip planning, and evening meal preparation if requested.Staff speaks English, Spanish and Italian.
