  • 5 of 5

"Fino ad oggi avevo visitato la Toscana, ma nel Casentino ci lasci il cuore. Una casa fantastica, in un luogo fantastico, immersa in un bosco "incantato" luogo perfetto per passare una vacanza da ricordare, con tutti i confort, adatta alle famiglie e non solo - parco attrezzato con giochi per piccoli e grandi (ping-pong/piscina/palestra)

Poppi e'' alle porte del Parco Nazionale Foreste Casentinesi - a poca distanza da luoghi fantastici per chi ama la natura e la montagna e circondato da borghi medievali e città d''arte.

Proprietari molto gentili e disponibili che ci hanno coccolato con gustosissime e "dolci" sorprese"
