  • Description

    Description

    Our family-run guest house is popular with nature-lovers, cyclists and walkers and is a stopping place for pilgrims on the St. Francis Way from Florence to Assisi. We are surrounded by footpaths through spectacular forests inhabited by red squirrel, deer, wolves, pine martens and peregrine falcons. We serve home-made Tuscan specialities, such as the delicious local Tortelli and Ravioli and char-grilled meats.

    With us travellers can live immersed in nature and observe mountain wildlife, learn to speak Italian and to cook Tuscan specialities. This is also an ideal starting place for day trips to Florence or to Poppi (one of the most beautiful hilltop towns in Italy) and the Casentino valley with its famous castles mentioned by Dante Alighieri.
