The house is decorated with care and with fine furniture, it offers free Wi-Fi and televisions include satellite channels and DVD player. Villa Katerina is a great starting point to visit the whole Tuscany, as it is only a 1-hour drive from Florence. Top tips from the owner: You have to eat at the restaurant “Da Paola” in Lonnano at least one evening, which is a 5-minute walk from Villa Caterina. It is a family style restaurant that is open by reservation only. Once reserved a table, Paola will serve you excellent homemade tortelli and ravioli, following the ancient Tuscan recipe handed down from one generation to another. Other restaurants where you can eat are: “I 4 Cantoni” in Pratovecchio, the 'Pizzeria da Vincenzo' in Stia and the restaurant 'La Torricella' in Poppi. If you enjoy playing golf, a 9-hole golf course is available in Poppi. In Poppi, you can also visit the park Zoo with your children. The Casentino is a valley full of medieval histories and much more, here is what you can see and visit in some towns of the valley: - Stia: do not lose the opportunity to visit the castle of Porciano, Piazza Tanucci and the Palagio Fiorentino. - Pratovecchio: do not miss a visit at the Castle of Romena where Dante Alighieri lived during his exile. - Poppi: its Castle and its old town are a must. - Bibbiena: very nice old town. - Chiusi della Verna: the sanctuary of La Verna, where St. Francis of Assisi lived, is worth a visit. Leaving from Villa Caterina and continuing along the uphill road, after about fifteen kilometres, you will reach the Sacred Hermitage of Camaldoli. In addition to all the places that Casentino offers, you can visit the cities of Florence and Arezzo which are just one hour drive from Pratovecchio. In an hour and a half drive, you can reach Cortona, Siena and San Gimignano, and in two hours drive you can reach Pisa. More

We stayed here for a week with family and two young children. The villa was so spacious and the views fantastic. We had a welcome tart and a bottle of wine on arrival which was just perfect to settle down to that night. We loved the fact that the pool was secured and could be locked so my two year old couldn't run in without us supervising. Perfect for any occasion as its so spacious and very safe for little ones. The owner Marco was amazing and very helpful. All in all amazing break. Thank you 😀

We wanted a house suitable for 3 generations on a relaxing vacation together, and that is what we got...and more! Lots of space both inside and outside, a great and child-friendly pool, nicely kept surroundings and a beautiful view of the mountains. Furthermore, our host was very friendly and always helpful. So all in all it lived very much up to our expectations.
