The main house where I live, always available to ensure your stay runs smoothly and the Garden and Pool apartments. All are completely independant with separate entrances. The Garden apartment is composed of 5 rooms on ground level, the interiors have retained the Tuscan characteristics with brick ceilings and chestnut beams and terracotta floors. There are 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom with shower, 1 lounge with a wood burning stove and open plan kitchen - dining area. The kitchen is equipped with fridge,oven and ceramic hob. From the lounge you access the spa room with sauna and jacuzzi and from there onto a terraced garden complete with b.b.q.
The Pool apartment can be rented for 2 additional guests and will not be booked separately so we can ensure our guests privacy, facing the pool,with jasmine cascading onto the triple arched windows, it has 1 double bed,kitchenette and a spacious bathroom with shower.
The swimming pool is 8mx16m and is open May through September, furnished with sun loungers,a b.b.q area and a large covered pergola with dining tables and chairs.

Thank you Caroline for this great stay at your really beautiful and relaxing apartment. We enjoyed the huge pool, the whirl-pool, the silence, the amazing view on Arezzo and being so close to a lot of the most beautiful tuscany cities. Caroline welcomed us with a bottle of wine and other local goods after a long journey. Whenever we hat a question or a problem she was very helpful. We can highly recommend the apartment!
We had an absolutely amazing time - thank you so much Caroline! It's a really beautiful apartment, the pool is sublime and the views are just incredible. I can't recommend it enough, we had a wonderfully relaxing time and will most definitely be going back.
Arezzo is really beautiful and we also had a lovely afternoon wine tasting in the area (Caroline gave us some great advice on this and was a really helpful host).
Caroline is a wonderful and charming host with an exceptional and lovely place to relax. We had a wonderful, recovering and private stay. We enjoyed the Spa with Whirlpool and Sauna and of course the big swimming pool. Our dog enjoyed the stay as much as we did and we definitely recommend Carolines Tuscan retreat for all seasons.
We stayed at Carolines place for our tenth wedding anniversary and as we arrived Caroline provided us with food and a bottle of Spumante for our anniversary!
We had a wonderful time at Carolines Apartment. She is such a nice person and very helpful. We couldn’t ask for anything more.
Caroline is a great host and very easy to communicate with. The apartment is wonderful and the outside area as well. It is such a nice place.
Caroline, thank you so much for everything! We hope to be back very soon!
Caroline è stata gentilissima e comunque riservata, disponibilissima ad accogliere ogni richiesta e a chiarire ogni nostro (website hidden) ha accolti con la sua cortesia, solarità e una deliziosa "merenda" a base di prodotti tipici ed un ottimo Chianti!
L'interno è molto più spazioso rispetto alle (website hidden) casa è facilmente raggiungibile, non lontano dall'autostrada, ipercoop (dove si trova qualsiasi cosa!), e comunque sommersa nel verde e nella pace di un luogo bellissimo da cui si domina Arezzo. Da li si può decidere di spostarsi con la macchina per visitare la Toscana o di concedersi una passeggiata a piedi per stare a contatto con la natura.
L'intera struttura ha un aspetto molto accogliente e curato. La porzione di casa dove abbiamo alloggiato era munita di ogni comfort, pulitissima, arredata con gran gusto, curata in ogni minimo dettaglio. La cucina è attrezzatissima, i letti comodi, il soggiorno molto accogliente. C'è anche una bellissima spa privata (sauna e vasca idromassaggio).Abbiamo trascorso una fantastica "fuga dalla città"in totale relax senza rinunciare ad ogni comodità...se come noi deciderete di trascorrerci il capodanno vi godrete anche lo spettacolo dei fuochi d'artificio visti dall'alto! C'è anche una bella piscina della quale ovviamente non abbiamo potuto usufruire...speriamo di "provarla" quest'estate!!!!
We truly enjoyed our stay at Caronline’s place. The house and garden are beautifully renovated, spacious and in a perfect, remote and quiet location, uphill next to a protected landscape with stunning views over Arezzo.
Kitchen, bathroom, pool area and everything else is well equipped, including a barbecue next to the big swimming pool and various tables to have lunch/ dinner outside. Make sure to bring a car as the road to the house is extremely steep.
Next supermarket is close by (again: by car) and it’s only a 10min drive to Arezzo, a beautiful medieval town with a lot of restaurants, cafes etc.
Caroline is super friendly, relaxed and kind (she had bought food for us when we finally arrived after a 8hour drive) – we felt at home right away and we highly recommend this place.
Caroline is the perfect hostess and her place in Antria on the hills north of Arezzo is a true gem. We had a great stay in her beautiful villa and had many great swims in the lovely pool. The view is spectacular.
The location outside Arezzo is perfect and you can easily reach a lot of great places (Siena, Anghiari, Cortona, Civitella etc) for day trips.
My origins are British and I moved to Italy over 20 years ago when I fell in love with this beautiful country. I spent many years restoring the house where I now live with my family.
