Typical Tuscan farmhouse ideally located between Arezzo and Florence, in the Casentino Valley, depicted by Dante in his Divine Comedy.
Surrounded by one of Italy's largest natural reserves (Riserva naturale delle foreste casentinesi, monte Falterona e Campigna) in a peaceful hill 5 minutes from the medieval village of Poppi. A paradise for hikers, mountaneers and arts lovers.

The space
The house stands on a hill, facing Poppi, in a peaceful area where you can enjoy nature and loneliness, without being cut-out from the world. There's a large living-room with a fireplace, a separate dining-room and a veranda. You have access to a nice English garden with seasonal flowering. And if you come in the month of June, you'll see fireflies...

PERCHED VILLAGES
RAGGIOLO (go to the brook at the end of the village to see the rocks carved with animal figures).
QUOTA

AREZZO is worth a visit, with highlights such as the Basilica of San Domenico (with a painted crucifix by Cimabue), the Basilica of Saint Francis (with Piero della Francesca's frescoes, the Legend of the True Cross) and Piazza Grande.

You can go to FLORENCE either by taking the motorway at Arezzo or the mountain pass of La Consuma, with its breathtaking view (inadvisable with bad weather conditions).
