This ex-farmhouse, unreachable by car, lies within a beautiful national park in one of the largest areas of uninterrupted forests in Europe. Solar power, fresh spring water, wood-fired ovens and the bumpy road, offer an authentic off-the-grid experience. It's the perfect place to go into the wild, take a break from urban life or have a digital detox. Hike to the monastery of St.Francis and the sacred forests of La Verna and visit the hidden gems of the Casentino.
“We were with two people and had the whole house for ourselves. Although the house is located in the national park and needs some walk to arrive, infrastructurally, it had everything that we needed: solar energy for hot water, lights, WLAN, more than sufficient water supply. The rooms were large (for winter times equipped with wood stoves), the house has two toilets, a bath room with shower plus showers outside, also a well equipped kitchen. The house is located in the heart of the Casentine Woods, 90 minutes walk to La Verna. Also other walks are lovely and easily accessible - path 054 passes by the house. We used the house as starting point for walks through the National Park and for recreational in-between days. The surroundings and the view are extraordinary. Sophie and George are wonderful hosts. They helped us with food supply as we did not have a car. We could also buy salad from Sophie´s own garden and home-baked sour dough bread (great taste!) and take part in a pizza-dough/ wood-stove experience. We are very glad and grateful that we had the possibility to stay in this house and to meet Sophie and George.”

“Lynne and David’s hideaway cave is one of the coziest nights sleep we have ever had! They have thought of everything one might need or even want and have supplied it! Their generosity with their guests is truly remarkable—divine smelling roses in a vase, hot water bottle tucked into the sheets, tissues and bedside reading lights and fabulous recommendations / knowledge about the local area. The shower built into the natural stone is gorgeous and fun to use and to top it all off the perfect bed with heavenly sheets and feather duvet made it too hard to get up early and go for a walk. This area is full of amazing things to experience and be embraced by...It is a gorgeous area and we will definitely be back!”
