Experience

Retreat in Casentino

After this long period of isolation you will have the opportunity to experience 3 days immersed in the nature and history of one of the most beautiful and unspoiled landscapes of our beautiful country. A moment to find yourself, regenerate and share loads of new energy.

In the heart of Tuscany there is a magical and still little-known place. The old beech woods of the National Park and the Sasso Fratino Integral Reserve became part of the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2017. Starting from this important recognition, Tourism Design Atelier will lead you to the discovery of the Casentino and the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests with its beeches over 500 years old, among the oldest in the whole Northern Hemisphere and coeval of Christopher Columbus and Leonardo da Vinci. The Casentino, an ancient land, rich in artistic beauties such as castles, parish churches, hermitages and natural beauty, is one of the 4 valleys of Arezzo, which, crossed by the Arno river, is the perfect destination for lovers of nature and relaxation, but also of art and sports. Millenary villages will amaze you with their incredible charm, while the wild and unspoiled nature will be the perfect setting for a holiday where the eyes and breath will realign with the beating of the heart. Silence and quiet will accompany your days with yoga and excursions in the park and in the villages, while the evenings will be enlivened by the intimate context of a welcoming and typical Tuscan country house
