Beautiful terrace in a quiet remote hamlet

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in this rustic stone house which has an extensive terrace with a spectacular view. The nearby national park offers some excellent hiking and road cycling (basically no flat roads, lots of good climbs and descents). The house interior and furnishings are a bit old, but functional and satisfactory. We made do just fine and spent most of our time on the terrace in any case. You definitely need a car if you plan to stay in Banzena, but you can count on complete peace and quiet. The climate is somewhat cooler than lower down in the valley, which was a plus during the June/July time we were there.

Bellissima vacanza!!!

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso una settimana nella tranquillità e nel silenzio, lontani anche dal fastidio dei rumori del traffico in un antico borgo toscano costituito da villette in pietra completamente ristrutturate. La nostra era in una posizione centrale con una vista mozzafiato sull'Appennino , dotata di tutti i confort, ma fedele all'immagine di vecchia casa di montagna. Piacevole la posizione centrale della località che permette di raggiungere tutte le principali località : Poppi, La Verna, Camaldoli, Pratomagno, ecc. La nostra canina lo consiglia a tutti i pelosi 😉

Découvrez la Toscane

la maison est très agréable, l'accueil des propriétaires était très sympa. Le lieu de la maison est un point stratégique pour visiter la Toscane (région du Casentino). Nous le recommandons à nos amis.

Situé après environ 2km de chemin empierré, c'est le calme d'un petit hameau au milieu de la nature. Terrasse très agréable et propriétaire très accueillant.

"L'endroit est très calme...

  • 4 of 5

"L'endroit est très calme, agréable pour de nombreuses excursions des plus variées, mais il faut être motorisé.

Mi-avril ayant été un peu frais, la maison était un petit peu humide et trop fraîche. Par contre, comme il a fait beau, nous avons vécu dehors. En été, l'endroit doit être très agréable. Malheureusement, un petit manque de propreté à notre arrivée.

Propriétaires très sympa, occasionnellement présents dans la maison à côté... ça peut être dérangeant si on veut s'isoler, mais ils sont accueillants.

Car: necessary

Casa Marisa is located in the ancient rural suburb of Banzena, in the middle of the magnificent green area of Casentino. It stands on a promontory that dominates the low valley of the stream Corsalone up to its confluence with the Arno river and surrounded by four important mountains. The sacred mountain of the Verna, Pratomagno, the Falterona mountain and the National Park of the Casentinesi forests: all of these are visible from the garden of the house. The centre of Bibbiena (the main historical and commercial town of the valley) is just 7 km away. The not excessive altitude of this area, around 600 mt., confers to the environment a fresh climate in the summer and moderate in winter, such to make it an ideal area in any period of the year.

• Riding tours within 2 km.

• Golf Courses in Poppi 10km.

• Churches and historical attractions

• Corsalone river where you can enjoy a bath within 1 km.

• Naturalistics Trekking Courses on Pratomagno Mountains, Falterona, Verna, Catenaia Alps

• Arezzo 20 Km

• Florence 60km

• Camaldoli 15km

• Bibbiena 7km

• Verna Sanctuary 12km

• Poppi Castel, Romena and others.
