About The Experience

Not only will you love the exterior of this beautiful stone villa, but you will enjoy the comfortable furnishings. This is a wine producing estate, so you can expect vistas of vineyard clad hills, as well as the opportunity to purchase the wine. The location is well suited for day trips to the small towns of Poppi and Bibbiena, as well as beautiful Arezzo and Cortona. Lake Trasimento, Umbria, and Florence are also interesting day trips.

Location Description

The property is 900 meters from Subbiano, a characteristic Tuscan village on the left bank of the Arno. Here you will find a Monday morning market, and if you're traveling in September you may be in time to join with the locals in their celebration of the grape festival, with product tasting and other traditional activities. The Museo dell Casa Contadina (farmhouse museum) is worth a visit, and you should also keep on the lookout for the remains of numerous water mills along the banks of the Arno. However, you'll probably spend most of your local hours exploring Arezzo, the charming town used as the backdrop for Roberto Benigni's "Life is Beautiful." Once one of the most important Etruscan cities, today Arezzo is beautiful for an array of architecture spanning centuries, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheatre and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month brings a popular antique fair, while annually there is a festival called "Joust of the Saracens," where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire and knights representing each part of the city charge at a target representing a Saracen king. The area is also well-situated for day trips throughout Tuscany. Florence can be reached in 30 minutes by train from Arezzo; a train to Rome takes about an hour and ten minutes.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The villa is beautiful. There is plenty of space, with large bedrooms and modern, large baths. The outdoor area is fantastic. Big, covered porch, a patio area by the pool, a grill and an outdoor oven. The view is fantastic. It feels remote, but is still within walking distance to Subbiano.
Enjoyed Most:
The size of the rooms, the view, the outdoor space. Proximity to town with restaurants and shops, also the best gelato at Cremeria Stella. Alessandro was fantastic. Helpful and available for check in and check out and in between.
Surrounding Area:
The villa is on a vineyard, with olive and fig trees, various herb plants...the vineyard is on a hill and the views of the sunset over the hills is beautiful. The house is up a hill from a small neighborhood with quick access to roads leading everywhere you'd want to go.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Subbiano and Corleone. Both within walking distance. Subbiano has a market on Monday mornings which is fun. They also have a great butcher shop and right down from that is a small market with good produce. There is also a fantastic gelato place called Cremeria Stella. Arezzo is a 15 minute drive and is a beautiful town; the train station is very accessible with parking right next to it. The parking there is public, so a good place to park to visit Arezzo as well.
Tips or Restaurants:
Flashlights if you're going to walk up from dinner in town at night. Look up how to use a stove top espresso maker before you leave....very easy to use, have the teapot next to it with hot water and you can easily make your own Cafe Americano! 2 local restaurants we tried were Corte dell'Oca and Taverna Dei Briganti...both were great. Little English spoken, but very easy to figure it out!
Directions:
We used the daily 10 plan from Verizon, which allowed us daily to use our American plan for text, data and phone usage, without roaming or additional charges. The Google Maps function worked great all throughout our stay in Tuscany. The cost was the same as a GPS from a rental company and the plan gave us calling, other data and texting as well. There is internet service at the villa, but slower than what we're used to here in the U.S.
Check In Out:
Check in and check out was seamless. There is a book with a local map and various things to do and see with recommendations.

Our time at the villa was very relaxing and comfortable. The location was great - easy for day trips to the hill towns in Tuscany.
Enjoyed Most:
How easy it was to settle in. We also enjoyed the pool and being able to eat meals outside.

Walking around the property.

Subbiano, and it was easily accessible by foot or by bike.

Sunscreen was important.
