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.

At the northern edge of the Poppi area, the Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona, Campigna bridges the Apennine watershed between Romagna and Tuscany. The park offers visitors a rare opportunity to see beautiful wildlife including deer, badgers, wolves, boars, eagles and owls, and there are lots of walking and cycling tracks within the park.

lovely house in a beautiful setting

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time here, the house is fantastically appointed among the hills and there is the scent of lavender when you sit on the terrace in the evening .There are wonderful, completely unspoilt views over the hills from the pool side as well as the terrace and many of the rooms in the house. The house itself is clean, spacious, comfortable and characterful. Many places we have stayed in as holiday homes feel somewhat corporate and lacking personality wheres this is a gorgeous home with many lovely touches. The surrounding area is lovely and quiet and un touristy. Poppy itself is an interesting town with the lovely old castle area and its an easy drive to Arezzo and Sienna.

Together with friends spent a nice time inVilla di Catarsena this year. Sensational apartment building, beautifully located, an oasis of peace. Home leaves nothing to be desired. Very friendly owners. I would highly recommend.
