Vacation activeties

The activities described here under are to give an idea of what you could do here.
Notwithstanding the wide range of choices, we noticed with pleasure, that guests
sometimes simply choose to stay around here because they like it so much.
They enjoy the large garden, take a sunbath, swim in the pool, play some games
or read a book and in the evening pull open a bottle of wine and start a barbecue.

Valpiana, Londa
Villa Valpiana, is ideal for lovers of nature: walkers, joggers, cyclists, etc. can indulge
in our green clean environment of the Foreste Casentinesi National Park.
Swimming is of course possible in the private pool and in natural water like all kinds of streams
or the beautiful big lake Bilancino. Some of our guests like to take even a trip to the Tuscan Coast.

The nearest village, 1.5 km bird flight, 3 km drive, is Londa. Here are the shops for
all your supplies and several playgrounds, two lakes and good restaurants.

Our guests will find information and tips about things to do and trips in the house.
For example markets, museums, summer concerts and a list of restaurants recommended by us.

Villa Valpiana is centrally located among beautiful Tuscan regions like Mugello,
Casentino and Montagna Fiorentina.

*North is the rolling hilly Mugello. This region is famous for its Etruscan history.
It offers picturesque places as Borgo San Lorenzo, Vicchio and Scarperia.
In the Mugello area is lake ' Bilancino ' and who doesn’t know the motor circuit
of Barberino? Here you'll find as well the large Barberino Outlet Village with Italian
cloth designers. Nearby Dicomano is the wellknown Forteto shop with a playground
and a wide range of delicious fresh local products: cheeses, breads and cakes,
sausages etc..

Poppi with an ancient Castle and the atmospheric Arezzo with its churches and
impressive cathedral. The Casentino area has a rich religious history with great
monasteries like La Verna and Camaldoli, certainly worth a visit.
