The charming estate of Borgo Tranquilitta is surrounded by wooded hills of olives and bucolic charm that surround it like a garden and immersed in beautiful countryside, the vistas are phenomenal. Here are three, lovely detached cottages lovingly restored. Each has one or two private terraces for ’al fresco’ dining. THe village has a large crystal swimming pool which has been idyllically positioned for the splendid views. Although the houses have central heating, each has a large open fireplace welcoming early and late season visitors. The cottages can be rented individually or for a larger group of say, 10 guests when a large communal sitting room is also available for all guests.
Castiglion Fiorentino is about 7kms. which is midway between the historic towns of Arezzo and Cortona. Lake Trasimeno with its pretty beaches is within easy driving distance.
From here you can relax, unwind and enjoy the lovely scenery - or, there are day excursions to Cortona, Arezzo, Montepulcinao, Pienza, Assisi and more. Wine is a famous Tuscan export and you can use some of your time here to explore the many vineyards or go on a wine tour (In English, Danish, German) and enjoy some of the superior wines Tuscany has to offer. Oter activities in the area are cooking classes, truffle hunting and numerous festivals throughout the year. (website hidden)

Le site est exceptionnel. Y aller par temps chaud:les ouvertures (portes et fenêtres) ne ferment pas de façon étanche,on chauffe le dehors. Les habitations sont jolies et confortables mais pendant 3 des 7 jours il n'y avait ni eau chaude, ni chauffage, donc humide et froid. Nous nous attendions à des frais de chauffage central de 15€ le chauffage sera de 45€ par jour. Par ailleurs Terry donne un super service.
