Our family for over 40 years, offers hospitality in Casentino Valley.

For us it is natural to offer you the chance to savor every moment made of landscapes, scents, good food , such as pasta made with our own hands ... real moments that we hope you will remember forever!

MONICA purchased this villa in 2010

Why MONICA chose Poppi area

To offer to families from all over the world, the joy of being stationed in a place steeped in history, Etruscan, Roman, medieval immersed in silence but one step away from the country, we believe it is a great privilege, for what it represents, namely: sharing ... the greatest wealth!

What makes this villa unique

We think that the holiday should both join the rest of the mind and body, is the discovery of new places and cultures.

The location of Villa ELISABETTA seems born to pursue all this, which is surrounded by a park of old trees and equipped with every comfort .... not far from the historic center and 1/2 hours from the main Italian cities: Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Rome ...

What do you want? Getting to Know You?

Monica, her older sister will welcome and all Faiglia, will make you feel at home!

A fantastic 2 weeks

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most fantastic 2 weeks at Villa Elisabetta in August. Monica and Elisabetta were the perfect hostesses and made our stay even more amazing! The home made Lasagne and Tortellini were a lovely surprise as well as the provision of home made pizza dough so we could make our own pizzas and cook them in the bread oven that was built in to the villa! A beautiful villa with fantastic views and a large pool, as well as the table tennis and play equipment made our stay fun filled and enjoyable. The villa is in an ideal location for days out and while we were there we enjoyed day visits to Rome, Sienna and Pisa. The market at Stia is worth a visit as is the castle in Poppi where narrow cobbled streets dotted with the odd shop or two greet you on your way to the fantastic views that the castle has to offer. The "Atlantic Oil" restaurant (about 5 km from Poppi) was very good, offering very resonably priced delicious Italian cuisine and lots of it! They also brew their own beer which is probably the best we have tasted but make sure you book a few days ahead as it gets very busy and is very popular with the locals! There is a good supermarket nearby in the next town which is situated in a small shopping mall with some other good shops. Monica and Elisabetta were always on hand to help us with any problems we had such as booking train tickets and giving us directions and nothing was ever too much trouble.

An absolutely fantastic holiday and we can not wait to return!

Thankyou Monica, Elisabetta, Veronica, Alessandro and Leonardo for everthing.

warm & great welcome

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in Villa Elisabetta for 10 days, it's a stunning view from the house and pool, the house is nice and big, the kitchen maybe a little bit small, but you learn to work with it :-)

Both sisters Monica and Elisabetta are very warm, helpful and friendly.

We got pasta for Pizza, Very nice cake upon arrival and homemade Paste.

we had some very nice days in the house, baking our own Pizza's in the outdoor pizza oven, and nice ours by the pool.

unfortunately the weather turn bad after 8 days, therfore we moved on to the north for some sun the last 5 days, else for sure we had stayed for the 2 weekes.

but the time we stayed in the house, we had a great time :-) Thanks a lot Monica and Elisabetta Best Regards from all our family

Four Generation Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent the secod week of our holiday in this villa after spending the first at another one in Poppi. The property is well presented and comfortable. Four generations of family enjoyed the house, from Great Nana through to toddler grandson. This property has it's own wood fired pizza oven and we were brought pizza dough to make our own pizzas, which was great fun.The Table tennis table was an endless source of entertainment, for my husband and I and the pool has fantastic views of Poppi. If you have children the Zoo park next door is worth a look.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.

Monica, and her sisters, Veronica and Elizabetta are all very warm and welcoming, Monica went through all the necessary's clearly in English.

Poppi has good shops and the market on a Tuesday was great to stock up on fruit and veg. Also the next Village Pratoveccio had a very good fish stand on their market day, Friday.

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

Lovely property, great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 10 days in this beautiful villa in September 2011. Perfect weather, lovely pool and incredibly friendly hostesses! The 3 bedrooms, each with own bathroom, were perfect for our three-generation family get-together. The interior of the villa is decorated beautifully. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the covered outdoor patio was ideal for enjoying breakfast and evening meals. Screened windows kept any stray bugs away, and the stone structure kept the house cool, even on hot days.

The pool was great for cooling off after a long day of sight-seeing (we visited Arezzo, Cortona, Siena, Monteriggiano and Florence, as well as the Parco Zoo run by our hostesses and Poppi castle) and lovely for relaxing on the days we spent "at home".

Our hostesses gave us all the advice and help we needed, and are great cooks! Lasagna, home-made pasta with sauce, cake, and pizza dough for baking in the outdoor oven... yum yum!!

The area of Tuscany is just as beautiful as the guide books promise, and we had lovely panoramic views from the pool area.

All in all a wonderful holiday!! Thanks again to the best hostesses in Tuscany!

Brilliant holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed here for a week in July and had an amazing time! We were 5 adults & 1 infant and there was plenty of room. My son (18 months old) loved it! The house is beautiful, everything was very new & clean. The owners are lovely, very friendly & helpful, bringing us a few treats during our stay. Views are beautiful & we enjoyed many fantastic lunches and dinners in the outside dining area. I can't recommend this house enough & hope to return one day!
