ANGHIARI, SAN TOMASO, GREAT VIEWS FROM THE MEDIEVAL CITY WALLS

Anghiari Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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.

Juliet Ricketts purchased this condo in 2007

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.

This apartment was charming, comfortable and perfect for the two of us, although my husband had to watch his head since he is 6’6”! It was nice that the apartment had both a front door and back door – we used them equally. We thoroughly enjoyed Anghiari as it offered us the relaxation we needed but also the ‘just right’ amount of things to do. We visited all the churches and made daily trips to the bakery and artisan shops. During our week, we went north one day to Florence and south one day to Rome. We travelled via bus to Arezzo and took the train from there.

Owner's Response: Yes, the doorways are a bit low; the medieval Italians were probably a lot shorter in height!
From Arezzo there are also trains to Assisi, Perugia and Cortona. From just down the road in San Sepulchro there is a charming private rail line thatt wanders down the Upper Tiber valley to Citta di Castello, Perugia and Assisi as well. So it is very possible to see a lot without renting a car. And rail fares are inexpensive.

I would highly recommend this property. It had every convenience we needed. The listing description was accurate. Since we didn't have a car the bus service was very good to get us to places we wanted to see.

What a wonderful town and lovely apartment. We so enjoyed adding Anghiari and Eastern Tuscany to our favorite places in Italy. The location is really superb for visiting a wide area of Eastern Italy. All made it back into Florence one day, and all the way to Ravenna (stunningly beautiful mountains and flat delta. The intensity of Italian cultivation is a beauty in itself.) We also visited Cortona and Lake Trasamene for the first time. You were right: the Soldini shoe outlet is not to be missed ( 4 pairs of shoes and our Busatti and Ravigni products to take home.) San Sepulchro and the Pierra della Francesca paintings are lovely. Thanks for an apartment in an unsurpassed location and thrilling views. Arrivederci !.
