The closest train station is in Castiglion Fiorentino, 5km from our house.

Having a car would make your stay more enjoyable but we are extremely flexible should you require us to pick you up from the station. Cars can be rented from AVIS Arezzo which is directly in front of the Arezzo train station (20 mins from us by car or 10 by train). Prior booking online may prevent any problems but we have had guests who manage to get a car quickly without booking.

We also have 2 bikes available for our guests.

The town is small and quaint and has all amenities of a big town without the tourists, the locals are extremely friendly and always willing to help.

Cleaning is included in rates, no extra charges

If you need any washing done I can do it for you but we do not have a dryer.

NB. We have just installed solar power for electricity. :O)

We hope you have a great adventure wherever you decide to go in Tuscany!

About Kristina Meucci

I am Australian, mother to 2 children and am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world...Tuscany! My husband and I have a small villa in the Tuscan hills between Arezzo and Cortona amongst olive trees and love sharing our local knowledge and experiences with people all over the world.

Kristina Meucci purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kristina Meucci chose Cortona area

We made this house after falling in love with the block of land first. The house is styled in a typical Tuscan architecture which befits it's surroundings.

What makes this apartment unique

The breathtaking views of the valley and hills right in front of you. Lots of space to enjoy the wonderful clean air and walks and plenty of places to put your car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was perfect!! Navigated our way to the train station and used Christina's written map to get the rest of the way to the apartment. We were 30 min early and David was still able to meet us 5 minutes later. Location was amazing and we couldn't have asked for more (so quiet). Would stay again, and again, and again!!!!

calme et beauté de la Toscane

  • 4 of 5

Accueil très sympathique de Kristina.

Location bien entretenue, avec un jardin bien agréable.

Idéal pour ceux qui aiment la nature et le calme mais véhicule indispensable.

Seul bémol : pas très agréable de faire la vaisselle du petit déj dans le lavabo.

Un petit évier et 2 plaques électriques dans le coin cuisine et tout serait parfait...

Toutefois nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir chez Kristina!!
