Most of the furniture are antiques and part of the Family’s property.

The property offers internet connection, wi-fi, included in the rent.
In front of the entrance there's a nice terrace, where one can enjoy a glass of wine, and enjoy of the view over the small square of the village.
Pergine Valdarno is a very typical small village in Tuscany, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. According to documents found in the Granducato di Toscana archives, the village was built around 1050.
On top of a 350m (1150ft) hillside, it's the perfect spot for breathtaking views of the Arno Valley. The climate is beautiful as well, during the summer a slight mountain breeze cools the air and in the winter the dry mountain air gives you clear sky view.
While the village of Pergine Valdarno retains its "old time" charm it still offers all the modern conveniences such as a grocery, bakery, butchery , restaurant, bank, post office, pharmacy and police station.
There’s a FREE Guide book that can give some information about the Valdarno area, such as train timetable to Florence and Rome; list of shops, restaurants and shopping malls in the area; and some maps to help people to move around. We think it can be a useful help for our guests to feel welcome and 'at home'.
We suggest our guest to rent a car because it's the most convenient way to travel around, and just nearby the house there are several free parking spaces. Anyway there are also public bus from the village to the main towns and cities around like Arezzo, Montevarchi or Siena, and the transport is quite cheap though not very frequent.
The most important cultural towns are a short drive away, but don't forget to dedicate part of your time to explore the beautiful Valdarno valley: although it's very famous in Tuscany for the industrial development, restricted in particular areas, however it conserve untouched landscapes and artistic heritage that deserve your visit.
There is a very nice Public Swimming pool in the middle of the Tuscan countryside just 6 km from the village (ask owners on arrival).
What we wish to offer our guests is to enjoy the living inside a traditional Tuscan house, to get to know the beautiful and famous Tuscan countryside all this with some of our suggestions, if requested, to make your journey as much comfortable and suitable as possible.
Many Extra Services are offered to our guests.

About the Host, Edoardo
I'm a young man who's wish is to carry on the family business on renting summer houses to tourists.
I speak a quite good English, I love music, cooking and hanging out with friends.
I love to meet people from all over the world, I'm curious to exchange and share experiences, cultures and different traditions.
I studied hotel management to learn how to run this type of business and on how to deal with people's wishes and expectations. But our purpose it is not to have a formal way to receive our guests like in hotel, we most believe in offering a familiar and authentic journey through the Tuscan life and countryside, and to make people feel welcome and find a "home" far from their home.
This property is located in a small town, Pergine valdarno, removed from tourist's crowds: it's the perfect opportunity to experience the real Tuscan lifestyle of living in a small town, where the locals are very welcoming and eager to help out foreigners. This town is also in the middle of a famous and charming region, really close to three of the most famous Italian cities: Florence, Siena and Arezzo.
In the town you will find a small assortment of shops, coffee bars, restaurants, pharmacy, food and even a bakery and butcher! All this only 2 minutes from the property.
For a relaxing and quiet visit to Tuscany have a look at our offer!
My Best Regards,
