Casa Quintino is not a normal tourist villa, but a unique home, lovingly restored to combine the timeless elegance of the Tuscany landscape with the compelling strength of Africa. The personal paintings, books, piano, and ethnic taste as well as the simplicity of the rough style of finish appeal most to those who are seeking a genuine getaway from urban sophistication.
