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.

Lovely apartment,pool area and comfy beds

Thomas is a fantastic host . A few essentials in the fridge on arrival even a bottle of fizz. He gave us loads of tips for this beautiful area and nothing Was a trouble. We loved the very friendly dogs. The train station is just s few kilometers always perfect for Florence .Would definitely recommend a car to explore. We will most certainly stay here again when we visit this fabulous part of Italy.
