About MONICA

I am a farmer and inventor involved in numerous activities, born in 1964 that with so much effort and work in person and with the crucial support of the family has given new life to more 'buildings in the Casentino valley little known but beautiful, where you can enjoy a beautiful experience of relaxation or discovery with excursions to places rich in art, history and nature.

hello soon Leonardo, Monica and one of the sisters who help me in dealing with you I hope future guests.

MONICA purchased this castle in 1999

Why MONICA chose Poppi area

To give new life to a historic residence purchased at the beginning of the late ' 90s from a middle class family of the place in a state of decay after that for 1,000 years was left uninhabited and therefore without bathrooms, electricity, heating and where I personally have worked so hard in compliance dell 'original architecture, to give to you tourists the chance to live in the past with the comforts of today.

What makes this castle unique

Our Family for over 40 years, offers hospitality in the Valley of the Casentino. For us it is natural to offer you the chance to savor every moment made of landscapes, scents, good things to eat, such as pasta made with our own hands ... real moments that we hope you will remember forever!

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 the TORRE MEDIEVO LUNGARNO seems born to pursue all this: with every comfort, near 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 you and all the family will make you feel at home!

Perfekter Urlaub! Tolle Gastgeber!

  • 5 of 5

Klasse Urlaub! Maklerin war über aus nett und hilfsbereit! Versorgte uns zwischendurch mit Lasagne und weiteren Gastgeschenken! Der Turm ist wahrhaft eine besondere Immobilie! Die Lage ist perfekt! Möglichkeiten ohne Ende zu besichtigen, ins toskanische Leben einzutauchen oder einfach nur zu wandern....

Wir waren sogar zu viert, 2 Erwachsene und zwei großen Kindern im Turm- und der Platz reichte vollkommen aus!

Highlight sind dann die Abende auf der Terrasse gewesen! Ein toller Aussengrill, der SPA - einfach gigantisch!

Wir können dieses Reisepaket nur empfehlen!

  • 5 of 5

"L’habitation, qui est indépendante, a vraiment du charme. Il s’agit d’une tour médiévale très bien restaurée avec des matériaux de qualité et des détails choisis avec beaucoup de goût : évier et lavabos taillés dans un bloc de marbre, parquets en bois massif… tout cela respecte la belle architecture de la tour. Il y a plusieurs niveaux : celui de la chambre avec sa salle de bain, le salon et la cuisine, une mezzanine sur laquelle se trouve un divan qui peut servir de lit d’appoint ainsi qu’une autre salle de bain et puis enfin, la terrasse tout en haut avec sa cuisine d’été. De la terrasse, à quarante mètres de hauteur, la vue est superbe sur le village de Pratovecchio et sur le château de Romena que l’on distingue sur la crête. Au pied de la tour coule l’Arno qui est à cet endroit un gros torrent de montagne dans lequel nous nous sommes baignés. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette région du Casentino qui est très agréable l’été, un peu à l’écart des grands circuits touristiques ; voici l’occasion de découvrir une autre Toscane très authentique. La propriétaire Monica est vraiment charmante et nous a offert à plusieurs reprises des pâtes fraiches maison et des spécialités locales (confiture de coing, gâteaux…) qu’elle est venue déposer à l’entrée de la tour.

La seule petite réserve concerne la piscine que nous pensions pouvoir utiliser. Elle ne fait pas partie de la location. Toutefois, Monica nous a offert la possibilité de nous baigner une fois dans une magnifique piscine qui fait partie d’une autre location. Veramente un posto bellissimo e tranquillo. Stupendo per mesi estivi.

  • 4 of 5

Aangename gastvrouw die heel bereidwillig is. Het verblijf in een toren was bijzonder met de eigenheden van een toren: hoge toegangstrap en binnenin nog meer trappen, eerder donkere ruimtes maar prachtig uitzicht op Pratovecchio en de langslopende Arno.Spijtig dat er geen zwembad was. Een aanrader voor kort verblijf.

  • 5 of 5

"Il posto è assolutamente fantastico e il lavoro fatto per restaurare la torre è stato eccezionale. Dotato di ogni comfort, ma senza perdere il gusto rustico di vivere in una vecchia torre medievale. Consigliatissimo a chi voglia fare un periodo di relax lontano dal caos della città a due passi da un parco naturale. La cordialità e l''ospitalità dei proprietari sono state davvero di prim''ordine, ci torneremo sicuramente."

  • 5 of 5

"What a lovely place ! What a big surprise when you arrive in this house ! It was built one thousand year ago, equipments are very good and charming, you can have diner on the top of the house under the sky.

Owners are so friendly and always available for any questions, queries and advices.

Pratovecchio is so quiet and pretty, and give you a lot of possibilities to visit Tuscana : Sienna, Firenze....

When you leave the house, you just think about the next vacations there.

The place to be !

Congratulations Monica and Leonardo, all is perfect,tutto Ok !

Difficile de repartir de cet endroit magique. A notre arrivée nous sommes tombés sous le charme de cette maison construite il a mille ans. En fait une tour médiévale, parfaitement équipée, bénéficiant d''une terrasse avec cuisine d''été, transats et parasol. Tout ici est fait pour passer un séjour idéal en couple.

Les propriétaires Monica et Leonardo sont vraiment très très sympas et attentionnés.

Cette location n''est disponible que depuis le mois d''avril et mérite vraiment de se laisser séduire.

Pratovecchio est un bourg très calme et agréable, d''où la visite de l''est de la Toscane est facile. On peut se rendre à Sienne, Florence et autres magnifiques villages médiévaux.

Une seule envie y retourner très vite.

Avis aux amateurs de belles pierres.

5/5 est le minimum pour cet endroit

Merci pour tout Monica et Leonardo."
