About The Experience

At this large villa in the Tuscany, you and your group of up to 18 guests can enjoy being located in the Italian countryside, and yet be within 3 km of a small train line which goes directly to Arezzo. From there, fast trains will take you to Florence and Siena. Of course, once you see this villa’s gorgeous interior – with wood beam ceiling, classic tile floors, and ancient stone walls – and huge yard, spending your vacation at this home away from home might be just as tempting!

Location Description

This villa is located in the province of Arezzo in a small hamlet that dates back to the 12th century. Three kilometers away, the village of Capolona offers stores and food shops. There is a small 2-coach train at the same distance away that goes to Arezzo (17 km away). There are train tracks 80 meters from the villa, so you can expect to hear train noise. Arezzo is the beautiful city that’s the setting for Roberto Benigni's Life is Beautiful. Arezzo is a city characterized by an array of architectural styles, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheater and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month features a popular antique fair, while annually the town hosts a festival called Joust of the Saracens, where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire to watch knights charge at a target (representing the Saracen king). Arezzo also has a train station, convenient for accessing other cities in Tuscany like Florence and Siena.

Overall:
The facilities were palatial! There are large bedrooms and a dining room. This was important because we were a family of 19. The house was very accommodating with a large walled back yard and pool. The hit of the two weeks was a large apricot tree that rendered fresh fruit each morning.
Enjoyed Most:
It was spacious, private, beautiful, comfortable.
Enjoyed Least:
The train that ran by every morning. The bathroom showers were not enclosed properly so water ran onto the floor.
Surrounding Area:
The views, the proximity to Arezzo, the proximity of trains to wherever you may want to travel. A few local restaurants.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Capolona was the nearest small town. Definitely within walking distance. Approximately a 20-30 minute leisurely walk although it was along a road with many cars.
Tips or Restaurants:
Several local family restaurants: Chennos in Subbiano and Hotel Relais de Flores a few minutes away. The owner can give you the name of a couple of others. There are a couple of supermarkets very close by to get food for the kitchen.
Directions:
The GPS does not recognize the address given but when we put in the coordinates we found it.
Check In Out:
Call ahead of time to tell them when u will be there. It was a pleasure to meet Lydia and Eugenia was a constant source of help and information when we needed it.

Overall:
The villa was spacious and fit all 14 in our group very comfortably. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience.
Enjoyed Most:
The spacious house and bedrooms. The grounds were well kept and there were plenty of plates/cups/utencils and other necessities.
Enjoyed Least:
The house remained quite cool and since we did not want to pay extra for heat we had to bundle up at night. Also, the showers in the bathrooms leaked, leaving the bathrooms very wet.
Surrounding Area:
There was a large grocery store about 10 minutes from the property which was very convenient. Also, the property was about an hour from the main tourist sites in Tuscany (Siena, Florence, Chianti) and we were charmed by some of the towns closest to the villa (Poppi, Arezzo).
Nearby Events or Locales:
You can walk to Capolona.
Tips or Restaurants:
Spend some time in Arezzo. It was an unexpected highlight. Make sure to bring slippers and loungewear!
Directions:
Make sure to enter the given coordinates into your phone GPS. Google maps (based on the address) took us to a completely different town! The coordinates worked.
Check In Out:
The woman (Eugenia) who checked us in and out was very friendly and helpful. She was quick to responded to any emails and questions we had.
