Fattoria di Marena is an old farm offering accommodation with
swimming pool in Tuscany.
The farm holidays complex sets 400 m. above sea level in the green
heart of Tuscan countryside: Casentino Valley.
Guests are welcomed by the landlord's family, who live in the Villa

speaking English fluently, for assistance and holiday tips. We are a

hectars, meadows where the farm cattle live for about 30 hectars, 90
hectars of woods (close to the farm houses we have high-trunk woods
of fir, pine, oaks). The farm offers foothpaths and is a good place
for birdwatching. The farm breed a "family" of about 30 cows, a bull

a nice family of assorted hens, rooster, goose, too.



Family holidays in Tuscany, a special view of Casentino Valley

Casentino valley in Tuscany is famous for monastries (Vallombrosa,
La Verna, Camaldoli), romanesque churches ("pievi"), castles (Poppi
Castle, Romena Castle, Porciano etc) and villages from the middle
ages, memories of Dante and S. Francesco d'Assisi. Here you can find
masterpieces of Della Robbia and painters like Sandro Botticelli,
Domenico del Ghirlandaio and Bicci di Lorenzo. Being the valley
shaped like a basket it has mountains (1000-1600 meters high) all
around. The landscape is great, breathtaking. Village and sites are
not overcrowded, actually, and that make siteseeingh enjoyable
expecially if you are travelling with children for your family
holidays. The valley is also known for some typical products like
Panno Casentino tissue, Casentino's ham and cheese, restaurants
offer tastefull typical dishes.
The Foreste Casentinesi National Park sets on the mountains,
protecting a large forest where different kind of deer, wild boar,
eagles and even the wolf use to live. Arezzo, only 30 km away, is
famous for the largest ANTIQUARIA market of the all Italy (each
month, 1th sunday) for the marvelous old town, for the Saracino
Giostra (twice a Year) and for the Piero della Francesca
masterpieces. Florence is only 55 km away. From the valley you can
easly reach also Umbria (Trasimeno lake, Assisi, Spello). Excursions
to Rome and Costa Adriatica (Rimini, Cervia) are also a possibility.
