Casella Pioppi boasts two self contained apartments, giving you the freedom to holiday independently or to create your own bespoke retreat or group event.

Whichever way, the idyllic location and wealth of local knowledge is available for you to enjoy.  

Within walking distance is the picturesque ancient hilltop village of Preggio, host to a range of festivals throughout the year.

Mecatale, Lisciano Niccone, Citta di Castello and Umbertide, with their weekly markets and seasonal fiestas, are all within easy access.  

The classical hill top towns of Cortona, Perugia, Assisi and Sienna are a 40 min drive away.  

Also nearby, lies Lake Trasemino, Italy's fourth largest lake, ready to be discovered with its waterside picturesque towns, beaches and days trips to the islands.
