The mountain hut, in the heart of Foreste Casentinesi National Park
Our mountain hut lies in the province of Arezzo, in Tuscany, surrounded by the turkey oak and beech forests extending up to La Verna Sanctuary, where St. Francis from Assisi lived for a long time and received the stigmata.
This farmhouse situated far from the streets, light and noises has witnessed since 1000 the passing of the pilgrims going to Rome through the paths of the Via Major (also called Via Romea di Stade), and more recently of the pilgrims going from the Hermitage of Camaldoli to the Sanctuary of Chiusi della Verna, to proceed along the Way of Assisi.>>>
