The Residence LA CAPANNINA is a typical rustic tuscan dwelling, very ancient, built with local stones. Its first construction traces back in history, probably down to the Middle Ages or to the ancient Etruscan/Roman times.

Throughout the centuries the Residence has been restored and improved several times and recently refurbished and divided in apartments.

LA CAPANNINA has been owned by the Goretti’s family for more than 100 years.

The Residence is within The National Park of Casentino Forests (*) boundaries at 800 m. above sea level, surrounded by a luxuriant forest of oaks, chestnuts, firs, pines and beech trees, overlooking the Casentino Valley, the most beautiful and enchanting Valley of Tuscany and possibly one of the most beautiful in Italy.

With its 7.5 hectares of land, LA CAPANNINA has ample parking spaces, a play ground for children and comfortable surroundings for sun bathing.

A holiday at the Residence LA CAPANNINA is ideal for families or those who love nature, quietness and silence; for those who wish to take a break from their frenetic cities can enjoy time far from the chaotic noise, to find their inner self, meditate, read, study or alternatively to walk in the woods or trekking in the National Park.

It is also easy to watch the wild life and have great photo opportunities: dears, boars, squirrels, hares, foxes, pheasants, hawks and others are populating the park and live freely around the house.

Within few kilometres it is possible to visit some archaeological sites; from the etruscan age, romanic churches (Romena, Socana, etc.), sanctuaries, monasteries (Camaldoli, La Verna, etc.), medieval towns and museums spreading throughout the Casentino Valley and Tuscany.

During your excursions we highly recommend you to sample the local cuisine at restaurants or delicatessen shops, full of traditional foods and flavours being the pride of local farmers and growers. Within a short distance from LA CAPANNINA there is a traditional restaurant that offers special rates to our residents. This restaurant is located in the village of Valagnesi and it is a perfect finish to a 500 meter walk in the forest.

For those who enjoy some outdoor sports, the Casentino Valley offers a golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools, horse riding facilities, and rides in the Park that can be organised. During the winter months you can enjoy the place as a ski resort.

The Residence LA CAPANNINA is placed in a strategic place making easy for those who like to tour the country to reach all major "Art Cities" of Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and Emilia-Romagna. The Tyrrhenian and Adriatic seas, with nearby cities such as Viareggio and Rimini, can also be easily reached for a day out at the sea side.

The Residence is opened all year round offering a pleasant and comfortable choice with the opportunity to be right in close touch with nature. Small pets are welcome.
