About The Experience
Elegant, spacious, and with great views is how one would describe this Italian farmhouse rental. Well suited for a large family or group of friends, this self-catering accommodation features two living rooms, a private swimming pool and large landscaped grounds in the midst of the Eastern Tuscan countryside. The town of Santa Mama is only two kilometers away, but two food shops and a bakery are within walking distance.
Location Description

Located in the Casentino region of Tuscany, this property is located 800 meters from a couple of food shops and a bakery. Just two kilometers away is the town of Santa Mama where you’ll find a market, pizzerias, post office, bank, and gas station. The towns of Poppi, Bibbiena, Pratovecchio, Stia and Subbiano are interesting villages to visit in the area. The Verna Sanctuary and Camaldoli monastery are a must see. Arezzo is a much larger town located about 24 kilometers from the property and is considered one of the most important Etruscan cities. Arezzo is home to the renowned medieval square, The Piazza Grande, which features thirteenth-sixteenth century Romanesque architecture like the Episcopal Palace, and the Palace of the Lay Fraternity. Also in the area are several gothic churches, including the Cathedral of San Donato, as well as medieval and contemporary museums. It was also a filming location for the Life is Beautiful. If you decide to vacation during the summer, annual festivals are a great way to learn more about the history and culture of Italy. The Joust of the Saracens is celebrated every June and September and the popular music festival is celebrated each July. Day trips to other famous cities, like Cortona and Florence, are easily feasible via train from Arezzo or there are any number of destinations that can be accessed easily by car.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The villa is absolutely beautiful. The layout is terrific for a group as there are large spaces where you can gather or have alone time. If you have an ideal vision of the Tuscan countryside, this would likely be it. The views are breathtaking.
Enjoyed Most:
The peace and quiet are fabulous. The space is terrific for a group with lots of room and a well-equipped kitchen. The outside spaces are equally beautiful and although it wasn't warm enough to swim, we did sit by the pool.
Enjoyed Least:
The villa is reached via a very steep gravel road so you just need to be aware. A car is an absolute necessity as nothing is in walking distance.
Surrounding Area:
This property is very well maintained. The grounds are lovely and the little towns around there are great.
Nearby Events or Locales:
There is a tiny store with the bare essentials within a 10 minute drive but the little town of Talla is the closest town (about a 15 minute drive from the house).
Tips or Restaurants:
I would suggest you do some grocery shopping at one of the larger stores on the way from Arezzo. The town of Talla has a wonderful restaurant, l'Orcello that we enjoyed so much we went back a second time. Arezzo is a great town with great train service. We took a day trip by train to Florence.
Directions:
We met the owners at an easy-to-find location and she took us to the house. It would be hard to find it the first time without help.
