In this section of our site we present our best villas in Casentino
The Casentino is a magnificent area in the province of Arezzo. Bordering the Valtiberina, Mugello and the Valdarno, the valley is crossed by the Arno river and is rich in protected forests inside the National Park of Casentino Forests
, chestnut woods and hills covered with olive groves and vineyards.
It was the presence of numerous hills and the protection of high mountains around the valley that in the Middle Ages this area was chosen for the construction of castles, fortresses and abbeys. Today, during your vacation in Casentino, you can visit the Castle of Poppi
, the Romena Castle
between Stia and Pratovecchio, the Porciano Castle
and then proceed to the Palagio Fiorentino and the Valenzano Castle
Peace and nature of the marvelous territory of Casentino welcomed St. Francis of Assisi
, who chose the Casentino for his prayer retreats. For centuries now, in the places he had chosen, we find the Sanctuary of Chiusi della Verna
that is definitely worth a visit. We also recommend the Monastery and the Hermitage of Camaldoli
and the Sanctuary of Santa Maria del Sasso
Extremely fascinating the Romanesque parish churches of the Casentino: the Church of Romena
, the Church of Sòcana
and the Church of Sietina
welcome the visitor with their rocky walls in a peaceful and spiritual athmosphere.
