Usage and potential
Tuscany is one of the most popular Italian regions, where both foreigners and Italians love to buy properties in which they can spend pleasant holidays or move into and lead a slower-paced lifestyle, in contact with nature, or even build an accommodation facility.
The division into two separate units makes Il Casale delle Rose perfect for each of these needs, offering you the possibility of living in one of the apartments and using the other for guests or as tourist accommodation. The property would also be ideal for two families who wish to be close, while each maintaining their autonomy.
