Set in a small hamlet with spectacular views into the beautiful Pratomagno Mountains, the property includes an old stone house 'La Villetta', and a separate cottage 'La Capanna'. La Villetta consists of two fully self-contained apartments (with separate entrances) each sleeping up to five people. It may also be used as a single unit. La Capanna can accommodate six people.
Both buildings have recently been renovated so as to retain a traditional Tuscan character, and all three units have air conditioning and all necessary domestic facilities: fridge, freezer, washing machine, etc. There is a large garden with flowers, lawns, pergolas and BBQ.

'Thank you for sharing your fantastic house and garden with us. We've had one of our most memorable holidays to date. We've gone for bike rides, done walks from the house, been to all the main places...We've dined at some superb restaurants, drunk fine wines, barbecued many times in your garden (what a spectacular setting), seen the amazing fireflies...had a trip to The Mall (gulp) where I bought a beautiful leather bag for a fraction of the price I would pay here...can't wait to go again...perfect location for that area and all its wonderful sites and places to visit...Thank you again for a fantastic holiday.' W & J T (Derby)
'We found our stay absolutely wonderful. The 'Suggestions Book' was truly excellent. It encouraged us to walk around the vicinity as well as visit the historic towns nearby. Neither of us wanted to leave by the end of our stay.' (A honeymoon couple, Worcestershire).
The two buidings are close beside each other in a small hamlet, near the country town of Reggello which is situated at the foot of the Protomagno Mountains, about 35 kilometres south-east of Florence, in the direction of Arezzo which is about 50 kilometres. This is classic rural Tuscany - old stone buildings and lines of cypress trees scattered amongst olive groves, and vineyards.
The mountains offer superb scenic walks, and there is easy access by rail or motorway to Florence, Arezzo, Siena and beyond. The nearby village has excellent restaurants, bars, shops and an exquisite Romanesque church - home to the famous Masaccio triptych.
Other Activities: Large public swimming pool
