You may be a well-seasoned traveller who has visited Florence and Tuscany many times but perhaps you have never ventured into Casentino, between Florence and Arezzo. If this is the case, it is now time to make amends. Casentino has a fascination all of its own and a history to be envied. It will be difficult for you to forget it once you have been there. Having wound your way down from the Cosuma mountain, its valley is more undulating and softer than the geometrically rigid Chianti area with its rows and rows of vineyards. It is home to historic towns like Poppi with its castle, Stia, Bibbiena and others, all with a tradition for old artisan trades. If you have a car, the best way to explore this area, in my opinion, would be to stay in one of the modern, large and self catering (if one wishes) apartments at Borgo a Caiano. Set in manicured grounds with a large swimming pool, the host and hostess, Roberto and Ombretta cannot do enough to make your stay with them almost a 'family' event. With this home away from home as a base, Casentino is at your doorstep to explore and enjoy.
