Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Poppi area, Italy your home away from home

The Poppi area of Italy is a very small, rural area around 50km east of Florence. Although located far inland, roughly halfway across Italy, the area’s hilltop location with its backdrop of mountains and forests still makes for impressive scenery. A self-catering villa in the Poppi area makes a great base for visitors to the Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi. The towns within the Poppi region, including Poppi itself, are also popular with visitors who come to admire their Medieval and Baroque architecture, and experience a taste of true rural Italian life.

Our hosts kept in touch with us on the run up and made us feel very welcome when we arrived and all through our stay. The house has nice gardens with plenty of different areas to use and feels very private. Inside the house is clean, spacious and welcoming with everything you'd need. The kids loved the pool, which was big and deep enough for us all to use at the same time. The location is a perfect base for days out exploring other places either by car or train. It is in a fairly remote setting - which we loved. If you're looking for infinity pools and swanky night clubs, perhaps this isn't the one for you... but we would happily recommend this property to our friends and family. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Sensational apartment building, beautifully located, an oasis of peace. Home leaves nothing to be desired. Very friendly owners. I would highly recommend.
