Ancient country villa with pool in the hills of Tuscany, surrounded by woods

The villa is located in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Arezzo, in a splendid position with a panoramic view of the medieval castle of Poppi.

The villa dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, which has been lovingly restored and offers every comfort. It can accommodate up to ten people and has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, an independent kitchen and two living rooms on a living space of 180sqm. It is on two levels and has three entrances. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with bathroom en suite with shower (disabled), a tearoom with a wood-burning stove, a sofa and a desk, a dining room with sofas, a satellite TV and a kitchen with a fireplace , Hoods, and refrigerator with freezer. On the upper floor there are two double bedrooms each with a bathroom en suite with shower and two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom with shower (the upper floor has direct access to the garden).

In the outdoor area is the private pool (5x11m) with indoor and outdoor lighting, shower and sunbathing (open during the intermediate and high season). The villa is very bright and is very quiet, surrounded by a centuries-old oak forest where you can find deer, fallow deer and deer or, depending on the season, mushrooms, blackberries or olives. This is why the villa is an ideal holiday destination where you can enjoy the peace surrounded by nature. There is a fantastic brick and roofed barbecue with lighting, barbecue, wood oven for pizzas, sink with drinking water, shelves, table and chairs so that you can enjoy the dishes outdoors and enjoy the splendid views of the enchanting Valle del Casentino.

The owners welcome their guests with their welcome specials and prepare homemade noodles with pudding for the guests once a week. The holiday home is completely fenced with a two meter high fence.

The villa is surrounded by nature and is just five minutes from the pilgrimage church of Camaldoli, the golf course, the center of Poppi (one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy) and the Foreste Casentinesi National Park.

The Adriatic coast is about 90 minutes' drive away, while the Tyrrhenian Sea is a two-hour drive. Bathing is also possible in the lake, which is 1.5 km from the center of Pratovecchio, or in the river Arno. Excursions can be made to the Zoo of Poppi, to the pilgrimage church of the Verna, the hermitage of Camaldoli and the National Park of Foreste Casentinesi. Florence is an autostate, Arezzo 40 minutes by car and Siena 90 minutes by car. From Arezzo you can reach Rome by express train in only one hour and 5 minutes, so even day trips are possible.

    “Location: The house is on a slope in a forest at 600m altitude. Access is via a 500 m long gravel road. Overall, it is very quiet. From the pool you have a view of the town Poppi in the valley. However, the visibility was severely limited by higher trees and bushes. Supposedly the cut.

    Features: 5 bedrooms, 2 front with en-suite bathroom. Insg. 4 bathrooms. In the bathroom on the ground floor, the shower is right next to the toilet so that after showering you actually have to clean the whole bathroom without further separation. The shower enclosures in the OG do not close properly and you have set each time the whole floor under water. As general in Italy the current coverage is very low and very expensive electricity. Dishwasher and hair dryers can not be operated simultaneously. Also not fit German grounded plug. Adapter not forget. The extra cost is for the current week about 100 euros (including the pool used is negligible probably quite a lot of power). Air conditioning is not available, we did not used. In general, the house is cool. In the kitchen there is everything you need. The coffee is older and slow. A mixer for cocktails does not exist. Pots, pans, glasses etc are sufficient.

    Outside: There are 10 outdoor chairs and 2 parasols. Unlike in the photos of the seating is outside covered with a pavilion, which is very good. Grill, pizza oven are fine. The property is not fenced. Anyone who has a dog who likes to run away, should look for another house. The property is heavily wooded, so for children who like to seek adventure, prima suitable.

    Caretaker: The very nice housekeeper had 4x supplies us with food. Home-made ravioli in greeting, then again noodles, pizza dough with tomato sauce (we have made to their own taste lining) and again lasagne.”

    “Vacation was beautiful. Price / performance agreed broadly. Suggestions for improvement: a little less creepy crawlies in the house (ants and the like..), 1 - 2 Parasols more. Storage options of clothing can not be guaranteed everywhere, and if so not very odorless.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language
