Cortona, Italy - Casa Bacco
The wonderful private garden that greets you every time you enter Casa Bacco sets this home apart from many homes in Cortona, as most do not have an outdoor space. Imagine relaxing in the private courtyard with a glass of local Tuscan wine and some fresh pecorino cheese, or preparing a meal in the fully equipped kitchen to savor with your friends and family in the outdoor garden.
Casa Bacco is a spacious and luminous home that spreads out over 2 floors. The 3 bedrooms all have queen size beds and the house can accommodate 6 people. Two of the bedrooms offer stunning views over the rooftops of Cortona and down the bucolic Val de Chiana below. The other bedroom looks out over the courtyard garden and the neighboring homes.
Miro, your host and the owner of Casa Bacco, has restored this beautiful home, which was in his family for several generations. He has gone above and beyond to ensure his guests have all the amenities and comforts needed. Casa Bacco is very inviting and offers a relaxed, cozy atmosphere in which to spend your time!

ABOUT KINSHIP HOUSE
At Kinship House, we address the missing piece in services provided to most children touched by foster care and adoption. In addition to significant mental health concerns, these children have been traumatized by a necessary but difficult system. They need to explore the circumstances of their past to prepare for a successful future.
Our work helps minimize transitions and increases the chances of children settling into a stable, healthy and permanent home.
Kinship House outpatient child and family services combine ongoing consultation, therapy and education.
In addition to treating each child’s mental health issues, we help families develop secure attachments. We know secure attachments to caring adults will help stabilize the child’s mental health. We provide family therapy and consultation to help parents develop the skills to support their child’s unique needs
