The country house lies on a 12-hectare site with an orchard cultivated organically. The location in the Arno Valley, not far from the river banks, affords a beautiful view of the Casentini hills. Poppi and Pratovecchio are 3km away.

A country house and cottage are available for guests. Owing to the restoration of the buildings, partly from the 19th and partly from the 20th century, holiday accommodation with five bedrooms and four bathrooms can now be offered, with a total living space of 220m² (country house and cottage).

The country estate is only let out to one group of people for exclusive use.

The country house can accommodate up to nine people and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 160m² of living space on two floors. The ground floor (80m²) has a large and light living room with two large arched windows affording a wonderful panorama, like paintings. It has two sofas, a fireplace, satellite TV, a dining table with chairs and a kitchen unit equipped with a gas stove with five rings, an oven, an extractor fan, a fridge with a freezer compartment, a dishwasher and other electrical appliances. The bathroom has a window, shower, WC, bidet, washbasin and washing machine. The large bedroom with a double bed and single bed (or three single beds) has a window with fly screens that can be darkened and a terrace door opening onto the external terrace. Wooden stairs lead from the living room to the hall on the first floor (80m²), which has a bedroom with a double bed, its own entrance via external stairs, windows that can be darkened, and an ensuite bathroom with a shower, bidet, WC ad washbasin. There is another bedroom with a double bed, a balcony and a window that can be darkened. The third bedroom has a double bed and affords a wonderful view of the hills and the medieval castle at Romena. There is also another bathroom with a shower, bidet, WC and two washbasins.

The cottage can accommodate up to three guests and has a bedroom, a bathroom and 60m2 of living space on two floors. The 30m² ground floor has a large living room with armchairs, a wood-burning stove, satellite TV, a desk, a dining table with four chairs and a kitchen unit equipped with a gas stove with four rings, a microwave, an extractor fan, a fridge with a freezer compartment and further electrical appliances. Wooden stairs lead from the living room to the hall on the first floor, which has a bathroom with a window, shower, WC, bidet and washbasin, a bedroom with a view of the pool, the hills and the medieval castle at Poppi. It has a window that can be darkened, a fireplace, a double bed and a single bed.

Please note: for up to nine people, only the country house is available. From ten people the cottage is automatically booked in addition to the country house.

Guests can use the large garden with children’s play equipment, table football and a grill with a worktop. You can gather grill herbs and enjoy the shade under the high trees on hot summer days. The river Arno flows past the site and you can bathe there, also with pets. Around the pool there is a sun terrace with loungers, deckchairs, benches and parasols. The pool (6 x 12m) invites you to relax and cool off. It has steps and is illuminated internally and externally (from beginning of May to the beginning of October.) The terrace in front of the house is roofed and has benches and a large table for dining outdoors.

The owners, who live in a separate building on the country estate, welcome their guests personally and can offer homemade jam, as well as precious saffron. Bread can be delivered on request (Monday to Saturdays, local prices depending on order). The holiday home is surrounded by a two meter high fence.

The Adriatic coast is about 90 minutes away by car, the Tyrrhenian Sea about two hours. You can also swim in the lake about 1.5km from the centre of Pratovecchio, or in the River Arno. Pratovecchio and Poppi are 3km away. You can go on trips to Poppi zoo, the della Verna pilgrimage church, the Camaldoli hermitage and the Foreste Casentinesi National Park. It is an hour’s drive to Florence, 40 minutes to Arezzo and 90 minutes to Siena. It is only an hour and five minutes by train from Arezzo to Rome, so day trips are possible.

Perfect place for family

  • 5 of 5

Paradise for families that like to swim, play and cook! Super service minded hostesses! We got lasagna, cake, wine and fresh flowers at our arrival. They are more than happy to help you with wine tastings and day tours. Very clean and everything that we asked for was there, except more scissors. ;)

Thank you from all our hearts!

Beautiful villa in a quiet part of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our first holiday in Italy for almost 20 years and one of the best we have ever had. The villa is really clean, spacious and equipped with everything you would need. Great pool kept kids aged 12-48 entertained. Lots to see in the local area - Poppi itself is a beautiful hilltop village - and Arezzo, Florence and Siena easily accessible.

However the highlight of the holiday was Monica, Veronica and Sandro's wonderful hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble and they cook the best lasagne and ragu! Grazie Mille Monica, Veronica and Sandro

Four Generation Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were the first of the party to arrive, and met Monica in Poppi Village, this was useful as she pointed out the supermarket on the way to the villa. The property is spacious and fully equipped for a large family, like ours. Great Nana, my Mum and Aunty, my Husband and Mums 2 friends, and not forgetting the youngest member 2 1/2 year old grandson.

Monica gave us a warm welcome and went through all the necessary's clearly in English. The homemade pollenta cake was the best I've tasted! The swimming pool was fab and the garden and its toys were great for our toddler.

The bedrooms were large and clean. I would recommend this property for a young or older family. The downstairs level access was ideal for an older person with less mobility.

Poppi has good shops and the market on a Tuesday was great to stock up on fruit and veg. The old Poppi village has stunning views across the valley and the castle is very interesting to look around, very Romeo and Juliette!

We loved our stay here, and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful, Many thank yous! J & A Bristol. UK

bellissima abitazione dotata di tutti i confort

  • 4 of 5

ciao a tutti.

abbiamo soggiornato presso questa abitazione in quattro coppie con sette bambini nel periodo di capodanno.

la casa è arredata molto bene, ampia, confortevole e accogliente, dotata di tutti gli accessori possibili e immaginabili in cucina, lavastoviglie, lavatrice, caminetto super e lo stesso dicasi del forno esterno.

I proprietari sono stati molto disponibili e gentili, la loro vicinanza si è rivelata assolutamente discreta ed utile.

Anche l'esterno è ampio, la proprietà interamente recintata per una maggiore sicurezza dei residenti, l'Arno a 200 metri dall'abitazione raggiungibile con una bella passeggiata.

Insomma nel complesso siamo rimasti tutti molto soddisfatti. La consiglierei per un soggiorno all'insegna del relax e del contatto con la natura.

Great holidays in a great place with great people

  • 5 of 5

Great house located in a nice not touristic part of Toscana ;)

Sandro, living in the owner house just next (the two houses are located 10 meters away from each other), is really friendly and helpfull for everything.

Just to let you know, because it works differently in France, the deposit is for the electricity consumption. So you will have to pay it during your stay. It was'nt a problem but it was not that clear for us before the booking ;)

Cheers, thanks a lot and see you maybe soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks per review, I'm sorry if for you was a surprice extra charges per consumptions ...... but everything is written in terms and conditions published in HOMEAWAY, and your informations no correct... because deposit normally 400€ and I think you payed about 90€ in 10/11 guests per week per gas and light because Italy buy also energy in France that have nuclear energy !!!!.and this money we pay ....... anyway think that with all ours gifts of eggs pasta homemade, pizza and cake about 1 € per person per day is not important !!!!!! Thanks and all the best for the future, Monica

Ein sehr empfehlenswertes Ferienhaus mit Pool

  • 5 of 5

Ein ganz tolles Ferienhaus mit riesen Pool und viel Platz drum herum. Die tollen Gastgeber Monica und Veronica haben sich bestens um uns gekümmert. Ideal für Kinder zum Spielen, da weit und breit keine Gefahr in Sicht, außer der Pool. Auf dem Grundstück stehen ein paar Kinderspielgeräte und eine Tischtennisplatte. Alle Räume sind hell und großzügig dimensioniert. Eine Klimaanlage oder zumindest ein Deckenventilator wären aber von großem Vorteil. Die Küche und insbesondere der große Kühlschrank bieten sehr viel Platz. Wir waren sechs Erwachsene und zwei Kleinkinder.

Es war ein sehr netter und erholsamer Aufenthalt!!!
