The villa is absolutely beautiful. The layout is terrific for a group as there are large spaces where you can gather or have alone time. If you have an ideal vision of the Tuscan countryside, this would likely be it. The views are breathtaking.
The peace and quiet are fabulous. The space is terrific for a group with lots of room and a well-equipped kitchen. The outside spaces are equally beautiful and although it wasn't warm enough to swim, we did sit by the pool.
The villa is reached via a very steep gravel road so you just need to be aware. A car is an absolute necessity as nothing is in walking distance.
This property is very well maintained. The grounds are lovely and the little towns around there are great.
Nearby Events or Locales:
There is a tiny store with the bare essentials within a 10 minute drive but the little town of Talla is the closest town (about a 15 minute drive from the house).
Tips or Restaurants:
I would suggest you do some grocery shopping at one of the larger stores on the way from Arezzo. The town of Talla has a wonderful restaurant, l'Orcello that we enjoyed so much we went back a second time. Arezzo is a great town with great train service. We took a day trip by train to Florence.
We met the owners at an easy-to-find location and she took us to the house. It would be hard to find it the first time without help.
