Casa Haute rests atop one of the beautiful hills that make up the heart of Romagna Toscana, a wonderful mix of Emilia Romagna and Tuscany. Serene and restful, this vacation rental lies off the beaten track, on the border of the Foreste Casentinesi, a National Park extending southward into Tuscany .
On the north side of this peaceful and lush valley, you will find the tiny Tuscan village of Lutirano; on the other side, 3 km down the hill in Romagna, Tredozio, with its quaint restaurants, butchers, bakers, general stores, bars, banks and post office.
Casa Haute 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 Haute is set atop the highest ridge, where 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.
