Description from the owner
There are many ways to visit Tuscany. One of the best is to spend your vacation in the green heart of the Casentino Valley which is close to the main sights you might want to visit and far from pollution, hassle and expensive city hotels and restaurants .
Our beautifully restored 18th century farmhouse offers such an opportunity. Although Italy is densely populated , our farm gives you a chance to enjoy the total freedom and silence of this place completely surrounded by our fields and woods of chestnuts, oaks and pines, not forgetting here and there cypresses and olive trees. The nearby medieval borough of Poppi is barely a mile away. From ...Read more
Agriturismo Casa Luna
Poppi, Tuscany, Italy
Additional Location Information
The Agriturismo Casa Luna is situated at 380metres above sea level, on the hillside in the middle of a little valley property of the farm which is close to the medieval borough of Poppi and its castle. The place is a real hideaway as just few locals know of its existence, although the main building was built at the beginning of the 18th. century.
Its structure is typical of Tuscan farmhouses : roman tiles, stone walls, ceilings and roof out of terracotta and chestnut wood.
Wildlife here is present everywhere: porcupines, foxes, deer, pheasants, roe deer, wild boar roam freely in this zone. Close by in the National park you will find eagles and wolves as well. Some years ago a family of hawks did settle on our land. They built a big nest high up on a pine tree. So now, still present over our heads, the hawks old and young circle high up in the sky in search of fresh four legged delicacies.
Many trails and dirt roads lead you through woods and fields to the nearby places like Memmenano (a tiny village), Bibbiena, Soci ,Poppi or nowhere as you got lost….
In season you will find, if you are good at it, a wide range of mushrooms , even black truffles and the Casentino cep (Porcino), the most famous in Italy and probably the best you will eat in your life.
The water we drink here is spring water, there is no need for bottled mineral water. If you prefer wine, get it in Poppi by the litre, you will have good quality wine (Montepulciano) at a far better price and no litter.
Around the farm old mulberry trees are reminders of the times when China, Japan and Thailand where distant countries and silk precious enough for Europe to breed silk worms . The same goes with the Tuscany iris bulbs used as base essence for perfumes. Until recently they were still cultivated here too. Nowadays the bulk of the production has gone to Morocco. We now keep them just for beauty around the house.
