The carefully renovated farmhouse lies over three floors, in addition to a non-habitable attic, and consists of 12 bedrooms, six bathrooms, three kitchens, large living rooms, basement, garage and technical rooms.
The farmhouse has central heating, wooden window frames and excellent finishes.
It has annexes. The farmhouse is attached to another property to one side but retains its privacy.
Situated about 500 metres above sea level, near the 'Parco delle Foreste Casentinesi', located on a small hill which directly overlooks the beautiful Castle of Conti Guidi, Poppi. A curiosity that makes the history of the castle even more special is linked to Dante Alighieri, who stayed there between 1307 and 1311, and tradition has it that it was precisely during his stay in Poppi that Dante wrote the Inferno Canto XXXIII - of his Divina Commedia. Dante Alighieri himself took part in the famous battle of Campaldino between the Guelphs and Ghibellines not far from the Castle of Conti Guidi. The Castle, whose original central part was built between the ninth and tenth centuries following the disintegration of the Carolingian Empire, bears some resemblance to the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, later built by Arnolfo di Cambio, so much that it was mentioned by Vasari in his 'Vite de' piu eccellenti architetti, scultori e pittori' and was defined as a 'Prototype' of the Florentine Palazzo.
From the windows of the farmhouse you can also admire the entire Valley of Casentino, Camaldoli and La Verna, the villages of Bibbiena and Pratovecchio with the Castle of Romena and the small Village of Buiano with its 11th century Church.
The farmhouse is just 500 metres from the beautiful golf course of Casentino.
