  The Detail...

Relax and unwind at Novanta, an off-the-grid holiday spot perched high up in the Casentino Hills of Tuscany. Situated in an abandoned village, this is the perfect holiday destination for people looking to escape to the gorgeous Italian countryside. With a wide variety of dwellings, Novanta offers you the chance to experience a taste of traditional Tuscan life whilst still enjoying plenty of luxury and comfort. Awake each morning and gaze out at some truly breathtaking views and kick-start your day in style.

With a range of places to stay including a number of studios and suites that sit inside a traditional farmhouse. Recently renovated, the farmhouse sits on the highest point of the little village of Borgo di Gello, and every room not only boasts its own style and identity, but also offer stunning views out over the forest below.
As well as the wonderful suites and studios, all of which have en suite bathrooms, comfy beds and beautiful stylish designs, there are also a number of other options for guests. Why not opt to stay up in the eaves and choose the picturesque Hay Loft, perfect for a big family - or during low season it is transformed into a bunk loft perfect for single travellers or groups of friends! Or you could go for one of the Cottages which offer guests a bit more privacy and space, and come with their own private terrace, a lovely spot to sit and relax whilst enjoying the views over the valley. Guests who want to be a bit closer to nature could stay among the leaves in the handmade treehouse thats held in a 200 year old oak tree.

Guests area also able to enjoy some gorgeous food if they opt for the Foodplan which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. The team at Novanta have teamed up with local producers meaning guests can make the most of wonderful high quality food thats come from the surrounding land.

On top of all of this there are also countless activities to keep you busy. If you want to explore the area then why not have a go at foraging for truffles or mushrooms?
