The Casentino Valley has a rich history in arts, fine dining and outdoor activities in the national park. This isolated valley is located about 50 km east of

There are shops and restaurants nearby in Poppi and Bibbiena.

Located around a picturesque little square you will find Casa Giglio (up to 6 guests) and Casa Girasole (up to 4 guests).

The main house of Borgo La Casa, casa principale, is used as a family holiday home by the Dutch owners, who will not stay at the borgo when the two
holiday homes are rented out on a combined basis. This will provide the guests the exclusive use of the borgo.

This Casentino valley is located between Florence and Arezzo. The estate is adjacent to the Arno river and the forest of Pratomagno. With a little bit of
luck you can see in the evening deer or wild boars nearby.

The houses are equipped with various terraces allowing you to enjoy sunshine (or shade). The houses are tastefully decorated with a combination of
antique cabinets and wardrobes combined with modern furniture.

The (heated) swimming pool is spacious and features a deck, sun beds, umbrellas and a spacious terrace. It is in a prominent location of the borgo with a
beautiful view of the surrounding area and the castle of Poppi.
