Locanda Casanuova is located far away from the hustle and bustle of city life and yet within easy reach of Tuscan towns of great art-historical importance like Florence (25 km), Arezzo (40 km) and Siena (60), via the A1 motorway which runs not far from Casanuova. The nearest town is Figline Valdarno, a small lively town with pleasant cafes, an attractive weekly market and medieval sights. The route into the Chianti starts not far from the house and Greve, Gailoe and Castellina are rewarding destinations, not only for wine lovers.
Casanuova is a good starting point for walks, motor bike and bicycle trips in the vicinity. Another possibility is the Road of the Seven Bridges with romanesque churches, San Giovanni Valdarno, the museum for agriculture and the romanesque church in Gaville and Vallombrosa with its abbey.
