Why Marco Magrini chose Pratovecchio

We decided to rent it for tourists who want to discover Tuscany going through one of the most beautiful and hidden valleys of our region: the Casentino. This is the valley in which we were born and grew up and we want to share its beauty offering tourists a great accommodation provided with every comfort.

Great and large house in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a house suitable for 3 generations on a relaxing vacation together, and that is what we got...and more! Lots of space both inside and outside, a great and child-friendly pool, nicely kept surroundings and a beautiful view of the mountains. Furthermore, our host was very friendly and always helpful. So all in all it lived very much up to our expectations.

"Logement conforme à la description et à la vidéo. Les 2 logements sont bien séparés. Le site est calme et très reposant. L''accueil par les jeunes propriètaires est très sympathique, le suivi pendant le séjour est efficace (oubli de cle à l''intérieur de la maison vite solutionné).Les attentions ont même été jusqu''à nous envoyer par la poste un habit laissé dans l''armoire! Bon souvenir de la Toscane!"

Take the A1 motorway towards Florence. Exit at FIRENZE SUD and drive towards Pontassieve. Follow the directions for Consuma, then for Pratovecchio. Once in Pratovecchio, follow the directions for Lonnano.

You have to eat at the restaurant “Da Paola” in Lonnano at least one evening, which is a 5-minute walk from Villa Caterina. It is a family style restaurant that is open by reservation only. Once reserved a table, Paola will serve you excellent homemade tortelli and ravioli, following the ancient Tuscan recipe handed down from one generation to another. Other restaurants where you can eat are: “I 4 Cantoni” in Pratovecchio, the "Pizzeria da Vincenzo" in Stia and the restaurant "La Torricella" in Poppi.

If you enjoy playing golf, a 9-hole golf course is available in Poppi.

In Poppi, you can also visit the park Zoo with your children.

The Casentino is a valley full of medieval histories and much more, here is what you can see and visit in some towns of the valley:

- Stia: do not lose the opportunity to visit the castle of Porciano, Piazza Tanucci and the Palagio Fiorentino.

- Pratovecchio: do not miss a visit at the Castle of Romena where Dante Alighieri lived during his exile.

- Poppi: its Castle and its old town are a must.

- Bibbiena: very nice old town.

- Chiusi della Verna: the sanctuary of La Verna, where St. Francis of Assisi lived, is worth a visit.

Leaving from Villa Caterina and continuing along the uphill road, after about fifteen kilometres, you will reach the Sacred Hermitage of Camaldoli.

In addition to all the places that Casentino offers, you can visit the cities of Florence and Arezzo which are just one hour drive from Pratovecchio. In an hour and a half drive, you can reach Cortona, Siena and San Gimignano, and in two hours drive you can reach Pisa.
