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.

We got lasagna, cake, wine and fresh flowers at our arrival. They are more than happy to help you with wine tastings and day tours. Very clean and everything that we asked for was there, except more scissors. ;) Thank you from all our hearts! Maria, Marcus, Emma, Robert and the kids

                                                            Sehr schönes abgelegenes Haus im typischen toskanischem Stil. Die letzten Meter (ca. 5 Min) zum Haus muss man über einen Feldweg fahren. Mit einem normalen Auto aber gut machbar. Der Außenbereich wird sehr gut gepflegt und alle zwei Tage wird der Pool auch gereinigt. Wir haben die komplette Woche fast nur am Haus verbracht. Für einen entspannten Urlaub genau das Richtige. Da das Haus so abgelegen ist trifft man sich mit den Besitzern an einer Tankstelle zur Übergabe. Wunderschöner angelegter Aussenbereich mit herrlichem Blick über das Tal. Der Essbereich inklusive Grillstelle im Aussenbereich ist sehr schön. Wir haben alle drei Mahlzeiten dort eingenommen. Lisa

                                                            Fantastic views and good sized property

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            Lovely villa with outstanding views. Very spacious and clean and well maintained. Very good facilities in the villa. Good to have pool towels provided for just a few Euros extra. Great pool and again well maintained and clean. Only a small comment that I would have liked to see six sun lounges so everyone can have one rather than just 4 and 2 deckchairs. The pool is also quite a way from the villa up quite a few steps so would have to watch if you have small children. Plenty of ground for children to play in with a lovely set of swings and a table tennis table for older children/adults. Poppi was a lovely place to visit with some very good restaurants best the castle. My only complaint is I think it should have been mentioned that the owners live above the villa although still private you do sometimes hear people moving around and water running early in the morning. A lovely family run villa that I would recommend.
