There’s so much to do
Cities of Tuscany
Casanuova lies within easy reach of Tuscan towns of great importance in the history of art, such as Florence (25 km), and Arezzo (40 km) via the A1 motorway, which runs not far from the estate and Siena (60 km), along country roads.
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 area starts not far from the house and Greve, Gaiole, Radda, Volpaia and Castellina are rewarding destinations, not only for wine lovers.
Walks and excursions
Casanuova is a good starting point for nature walks, picnics, motor bike, e-bike and bicycle trips in the vicinity. From the hotel you walk straight into the green hills, past olive groves and abandoned churches. Enjoy the wildlife and the panoramas over the valley.
We highly recommend the Road of the Seven Bridges “Sette ponti” with Romanesque churches at the bottom of the Pratomagno mountains, Vallombrosa with its abbey, the Casentino with its wool museum in Stia and the Romena-church of the 12th century as well as the nearby museum for agriculture attached to the Romanesque church in Gaville.
