Our English speaking agent Giuseppe Dini meets you at the town car park (free parking) and escorts you through the 12th Century town gate to our apartment in the medieval terrace built on the ancient city walls. You walk into the living room,with a modern kitchen and dining area. From two leather covered reclining chairs you can watch the sun rise over the Appenine mountains and light up the fertile valley of the Tiber 400 yards below you.
A circular staircase drops to the bedroom below, (2 single beds or one double bed), with under floor heating for the winter months. An Italian tiled floor leads into the ensuite bathroom with shower, bidet, basin and toilet set under an 800 year old arch. From the bedroom double French windows open onto the broadwalk along the battlement walls: the view is astounding.
Fiametta, our caretaker lives next door and is always ready with help; anything that she cannot solve, Giuseppe can. She will have placed a bottle of wine and two glasses ready for you to toast your arrival in San Tommaso. And in the kitchen cabinet you will find everything necessary for your first breakfast in Italy, should you arrive late in the evening.
My twin sister and I recognized a fantastic opportunity to create a brand new apartment out of available space in the lower level of our terraced building. We love restoring old buildings, fitting in the modern facilities without changing the historical authenticity of the place. Since we now own three apartments in the same building, we have been able to arrange wonderful family gatherings at Christmas, Easter and in the Summer. We find any time of the year has its own special rewards. Our husbands were amazed at what we had created out of the space.
This 800 year old 'borgo' on the Tuscany/Umbrian borders has earned its place in the official Italian register of 'The 100 Most Beautiful Small Towns of Italy'. The town is completely un-spoilt, and the mayor keeps it spotlessly clean and well maintained. The Anghiaresi are wonderfully friendly, particularly to Americans and Britons because so many of them have family members living in the USA or the UK. Because of the narrow streets there are no cars in the medieval part of town and the peacefulness is truly wonderful. Yet there are two museums, 4 medieval churches, six good restaurants, four pizza bars, four coffee shops, four bars and antique and art shops within walking distance. On Wednesdays the local people set up a market for locally produced wine, cheese, meats and vegetables. There are regular buses to bigger towns nearby like Sansepulchro and Arezzo, where you can get a fast train to Florence and be in the heart of that great city in 50 minutes, or Rome in 90 minutes.
