About this listing

Our villa with private pool and park with splendid view on Tuscan country is perfect for your family holiday. Kids are always our special guests and can freely play in our fully equipped playground while mum and dad are relaxing!

The space

Splendid farmhouse built in the late 19th century and located in Valdichiana in a panoramic and privileged position overlooking the hills of Tuscany.
The villa is situated just a few kilometers south of Arezzo in a strategic position to reach the most beautiful historic towns in Tuscany. An ideal holiday destination for both culture and history lovers and for those who do not want to give up relaxing holiday immersed in nature and sport.

INSIDE VILLA
The complex consists in a villa and a cottage and can accommodate up to 12 guests.
The villa, overlooking the garden through a porch, is a two-storey building (6+3 guests) having on the ground floor a large and fully equipped country kitchen, a living/dining room with a piano, a comfortable sofa facing an old charming wood-burning fireplace and a large double sofa bed.
On the first floor are 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom (all of them have air conditioners) and a bathroom with shower.
There's also the possibility to add an extra single folded bed.
The cottage (3 guests), which is 5 meters far from the villa facing the swimming pool, consists in a bathroom with shower and a triple bedroom (with air conditioner) having 1 double bed and 1 single bed. The double bed can also be separated giving you a room with three single beds.

THE OUTDOORS
The whole complex is surrounded by a fully fenced private garden with plenty of flowers, aromatic plants like sage, rosemary and lavender and shady trees to lay under in the comfortable swing suit.
Staying at the villa our guests will have the opportunity to taste freshly peeled plums, pears, apricots and figs from our family orchard close to the swimming pool.
In the garden there are also a large gazebo (for meals in the open air), a brick barbecue, a wood-burning oven, and a fully equipped playground for kids (with slide, swing, covered sandbox with toys, teeter-totter, play house and mini football doors).
The property has large private car parking place.
Laying in the sun or climbing up a tree you’ll find our special guest Gigio, a cute red and white cat waiting for your cuddles!

SWIMMING POOL
A few meters from the villa and directly in front of the cottage lies the private swimming pool (12×6 m; depth: 1.10-2.20 m) well equipped with lounge chairs, outdoor shower and extra room to lay down bathrobes and personal belongings.
The swimming pool can be opened from late April to late September depending on reservations.

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay in Tuscany. We had nine people total, so 3 people stayed in the cottage and 6 in the house. The pool was amazing and very clean. The garden was very pretty and large with fruit trees and herbs to pick. We made use of both the outside grill and pizza oven. The location was great for visiting local towns and vineyards. We would definetly stay here again.

The villa together with the pool was perfect for our group vacation. We travelled around and made one full day at the pool only. Therefore for visiting all the beautiful wine area cities like Montepulciano, Greva, Cortona - this location is super. And for shopping the nearby outlet village is also perfect. Everything what was described and showed on the photos was there. The host was very discrete and helpful, no problems at all.

We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the villa. The view far exceeds the pictures. The pool was clean and provided days of entertainment for the kids. We were a party of 9 and stayed comfortably. The house was clean and full of character. The towns nearby offer great restaurant food, local specialities, & groceries. I really enjoyed the local farmer's market for fresh produce, meat, & cheeses. We had total privacy the entire week. We would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed for one week at the villa. Everything went as expected and Valentina replied very fast on all requests and questions. We were total four families and the villa suited our needs perfectly, children loved to play at the pool and adults enjoyed dinner outside every evening watching the amazing scenery and sunsets. Highly recommended.

Villa fantastica nel mezzo del verde. Io e i miei amici abbiamo passato un capodanno fantastico, complice il camino con il salone e la cucina molto spaziosi. Enrico è stato eccezionale e pronto a risolvere ogni piccolo inconveniente. Consigliatissima soprattutto per l'estate per sfruttare anche la piscina ed il giardino.

Addio al nubilato SUPER! Enrico è stato molto gentile e disponibile per l'orario flessibile di check-in e check-out ( gestire 8 donne non è da tutti :D) La casa è davvero molto bella e perfetta sia per feste con amici che per famiglie con bambini... le stanze sono molto ampie e bene pulite! dalla piscina il panorama è unico soprattutto al tramonto! un vero incanto. Peccato aver fatto solo 2 giorni... Se volete organizzare una cena in casa fatevi dare il contatto della Signora Luciana.. una cuoca eccellente e davvero molto simpatica e disponibile. Tutto perfetto , consiglio vivamente! Se devo trovare una nota stonata: la quantità di zanzare che ahimè con il caldo anomalo ancora ne facevano da padrone. Grazie per tutto Enrico! hai reso felice una futura sposina Ci rivedremo molto presto ;)
