In the Casentino Valley, on the border between Arezzo and Florence. Beautiful villa on the slopes of a high hill, on the border between the provinces of Arezzo (50 km) and Florence (50 km), with an incomparable view of the whole of the Casentino, the ancient valley formed by the River Arno and bordered by the rugged spurs of Pratomagno and the Alpe di Catenaia. It is near all the historical centers of the valley, with imposing castles erected to defend the land below, or important Christian sites like the Abbey of Vallombrosa, the Sacred Hermitage of Camaldoli, the Sanctuary of La Verna, where Saint Francis received the stigmata. Nature lovers couldn't miss an excursion to discover the natural marvels of the Park of the Casentino Forests.
Wide green outdoors and panoramic swimming pool. On the large garden in front of the house, in a sunny and panoramic position there are a nice swimming pool (size 10 x 5 m - depth 1,20-1,50 m, completely fenced), a table tennis, a swing and a barbecue. Podere Varlunga has been comfortably furnished with traditional Tuscan furniture.

Beautiful & relaxing view of the Casentino landscape, very nice pool especially in the evening, confortable house : we can confirm that the pictures are reflecting the reality. The owners are very nice, they cleaned the pool every morning when we were all still asleep...Perfect ! Temperatures are hot during the day in August, but the nights are not (ideal to sleep well !). The surroundings are amazing for those who love medieval atmosphere (Poppi, Bibiena, Arezzo, Siena...).
If we had 1 only thing a little negative, that would be the noise made by some agricultural neighbours sometimes, but it luckily didn't last too long.
I strongly recommend this villa, and I want to mention that I'm no relative nor friend of the owners.
sehr schöne Lage, tolles Haus gemütlich eingerichtet und gute Ausstattung für viele Personen. Sehr nette Vermieter. Wir waren rundum zufrieden. Einzig evtl. wissenswert ist, dass die beiden oberen Zimmer hellhörig sind, uns hat das nicht gestört.
Podere Varlunga ist ein sehr schönes gepflegtes Ferienhaus, in wunderschöner Lage. Vom Pool aus hat man einen traumhaften Ausblick auf den gegenüberliegenden Berg. Die Vermieter sind sehr nette Leute. Uns hat es super gut gefallen. Einziger kleiner Nachteil ist die steile und schmale Zufahrt zum Haus.
<i>[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve]</i> Podere Varlunga is a very nice and well kept holiday home, set in a beautiful location. From the pool you can enjoy a fantastic view on the opposite mountain. The owners are very nice people. We liked it very much. The only slight drawback is the steep and narrow driveway to the house.
