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.

Many of these feature castles, churches and other important buildings which can be visited, and holiday villa or farmhouse in the Poppi area makes a great base from which to explore all the region has to offer.

Places to visit on holiday in Poppi area, Italy

The town of Poppi is dominated by the Castle of Conti Guidi, a huge 12th Century structure which sits on the hill above the town. The castle is open to visitors, and contains within its walls a beautiful chapel, frescoes and a library full of medieval manuscripts.

Bibbiena, another of the area’s hilltop towns, is home to not one but three palaces, the Palazzo Mazzoleni, Palazzo Niccolini and Palazzo Dovizi, all of which are open to the public.

Ortignano Raggiolo, a small commune within the Poppi area has a rather quirky fascination with chestnuts. Visitors can also get involved at the Ecological Museum of the Chestnut, or attend the Chestnut Festival held every October.

This was a beautiful villa, with a stunning garden and pool and the owner/contact person could not have been more welcoming and helpful.

Tuscan paradise

5 of 5
We found this Villa and we immediately fell in love with the amazing surroundings and the country style of this place. It looked like an oasis in the middle of the green and so it is. Villa Lakeside is amazing, we loved everything about this place. It is elegant, very well cleaned and peaceful, just what we needed to relieve tension and relax. This private and secluded Villa is very comfortable and very well equipped, also, we all loved the beamed ceiling and the rustic stone fireplace in the dining room. It was our favourite room in the whole house. Highly recommended.
