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

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.

Review for stay from 17 June 2017 to 01 July 2017

5 of 5
We spent a magical two weeks in this lovely Tuscan villa. There were 10 of us for the most part and 13 when family came for a few days. We all had plenty of space and were in awe of the breath-taking views from the villa. We visited Florence, Siena, Assisi and Arezzo. We found the people of the neighbouring village of Subbiano to be so friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had to use the medical centre in Subbiano and were very impressed by the efficiency of everyone. Alessandra and Eugenia were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our holiday. Would recommend the beautiful Tuscan meal that Alessandra and her lovely mum can make for you in the villa. Just sad to be home.

Very nice villa , owners were super and offered a lot of assistance and advice ... even drove us to local restaurant on first day... and picked us up ! Garden and outside area very up to date and kept clean each morning by owners who lived across the road in case we needed anything! Parking very secure .. lots of space ... very easy walk to town for lovely range of restaurants and small local shops and bars ! Good places nearby for visits but a wee bitty distinct for a few towns , however motor ways were easy . Kitchen was fine, bathrooms were okay for us. Best bit were the owners who looked after us so well and left us in peace in the sun toooo! Never even saw the lady down the stairs much as this was a very private home .
