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.

Excellent property and the most magical place for a wedding. Francesca and her team are amazing.

5 of 5
When we sat down to book a wedding in Tuscany with my daughter and now son in law, we knew the property looked good, but we had no idea how truly amazing this palace is. The property is spacious and our friends and family commented on how large their rooms were and the accommodation is perfect for gatherings and enough space if you need some quite time too. Francesca was so supportive with the wedding, providing good advice and putting us in touch with a wedding planner, so helpful if you don’t speak Italian. There were lots of options for the wedding and you can enjoy outside or use the banqueting hall and veranda, which is amazing. Francesca provided many options for the wedding breakfast and the food was delicious too! My daughter and son in law had such an amazing wedding with so many happy memories to cherish. On our last day we shed many tears of joy and cannot recommend this lovely family and place enough.

MItte Mai haben wir eine Woche im Podere Sant´angelo verbracht . Die Vermieter waren tolle Gastgeber, standen jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und waren sehr freundlich, aufmerksam und hilfsbereit. Das ganze Anwesen ist wunderschön und wird liebevoll gepflegt. Es ist sehr schön gelegen und man kann kleinere und größere Spaziergänge von dort aus machen. Zum nächstgelegenen Ort mit kleinem Supermarkt und Bäcker sind es ca. 5 MInuten mit dem Auto. Das Wohnhaus war sehr sauber und die Zimmer ausreichend groß. Die Matzrazen in den Betten sind etwas schaukelig :-) Das Küchenhaus mit überdachter Terrasse ist großartig und mit Allem in ausreichender Zahl ausgestattet, was man zum Kochen und Essen benötigt. Wir haben uns an einem Abend toskanisch bekochen lassen und waren sehr begeistert vom gesamten Menü. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis war sehr gut. Auch für unsere Kinder im Jugendalter war mit Ruderboot am See, Tennisplatz, Tischtennisplatte, Pool und W-lan ! ;-) genug an Freizeitaktivitäten auf dem Gelände vorhanden. Wir hatten eine wirklich tolle Urlaubswoche !
