The agriturismo

A nineteenth century farm among woodland, meadows and flowers in the Foreste Casentinesi National Park, along the park's network of hiking routes and easily accessible from Florence, Arezzo and Forlì.

A simple, genuine agriturismo, created to offer its guests the chance to discover and appreciate Tuscan life, culture and cuisine.

The accommodation

The owners personally welcome their guests, and offer accommodation in double rooms with bathrooms, furnished in traditional Tuscan Apennine style, with  exposed wooden beams and Tuscan terracotta ceiling tiles. There are also larger rooms available, perfect for families and groups.

In the large lounge with open fireplace, guests can sample culinary specialties from the Casentino Valley, prepared using locally sourced ingredients. The homemade tarts and jams are quite simply divine.

The structure is ecologically run, and is one of the Foreste Casentinesi National Park’s recommended agriturismos. On the farm, guests can get to know the horses, sheep, guinea pigs, dogs and cats, and use the hide to spot local wildlife.

 

Activities and surrounding

La Chiusa is the ideal starting point for excursions along the Park’s pathways, which lead right from the agriturismo’s front door to creeks, waterfalls, forests and breathtaking views. The owner is one of the National Park’s guides, and is happy to provide maps and recommend routes for your excursions. Guests can also participate in the free guided excursions organised by the Park.

Just a few minutes away by car you will find two riding centres, two swimming pools, tennis courts, a 9 hole golf course, a fishing lake and mountain bikes for hire. In summer a park on the Arno park is the ideal place for a refreshing dip surrounded by nature. In winter there is skiing available at the Burraia - Campigna ski resort (1480 m), on the slopes of Monte Falco (1658 m). Snowshoes are available for hire from the agriturismo.

For those who love culture and art, the valley is home to several hamlets and medieval castles, just a stone’s throw away, as well as Romanesque churches, and the great religious centres of Camaldoli and La Verna with their works of art. A visit to the small local history ecomuseums is also recommended.

The nearest cities of art are Arezzo, Florence, Cortona and San Gimignano, but Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Ravenna and Bologna are also close enough for a day trip.

    "peace and quiet in a picturesque corner of the Casentino countryside "

    07/15/2019

    We felt at home in this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse nestled in the forests of Casentino.
    The rooms are furnished with taste and simplicity and the owners are very kind and not intrusive.
    The simple and tasty cuisine is enriched by the fresh products of the garden.
    We certainly recommend it to those seeking a break of serenity and quiet.

    "In an oasis of peace, the exquisite hospitality accompanied by the culture of a cuisine closely linked to the territory. In a word, excellent."

    06/22/2019

    A week of absolute relaxation, with wonderful excursions in the enchanting forests of Casentino where only the singing of birds and the rustling of the leaves of the imposing beech trees were the only noises accompanied by the roar of the streams and the sight of fleeting deer intimidated to our passage.
    If you want to experience nature in its fullness in a simple and satisfying way, the Agriturismo "LaChiusa" is the ideal place.

    "Very relaxing days in a wonderful country inn"

    06/19/2019

    My stay in the country inn La Chiusa was positive throughout. It is wonderfully and quietly located in the heart of Tuscany. If you want to relax and get away from it all, this is the place for you. Also the food from own cultivation was very tasty. I can only recommend this opportunity to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in this region.
