The house is situated on the top of the 'Passo della Foce', in the tiny hamlet of Caldesi, from where you can glimpse an incredible view on the Val di Chio which, with its green, wooded hills, connects the Valdichiana to the Valtiberina and to the border with Umbria.

it was a lovely location, peaceful and quiet, and very clean and very comfortable. One helpful suggestion might be a way of allowing guests to choose the heating on, as was bit cold at that time of year mornings/evenings?

Het was fantastisch !! Mooi huisje boven op een berg met een mooi zwembad. Alles omheind dus ideaal met een hond en kinderen. Super lieve eigenaren elke dag brachten ze wel wat lekkers. Heerlijke tomaten, eieren en groente. 1 nadeel je zit midden in de natuur en het was er in onze tijd erg warm dus veel steekvliegen.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] It was fantastic !! Nice cottage atop a hill with a nice pool. All fenced in so ideal with a dog and children. Super sweet owners they brought something nice every day. Delicious tomatoes, eggs and vegetables. 1 drawback you are surrounded by nature and it was in our time very hot so many swarms of flies.

We had a wonderful time at Casa Caldesi. Some friends and I were on a multiple country vacation, and had been go go go for over a week. The Casa was the perfect place to relax and just enjoy our surroundings. The home was very comfortable and the owners were so friendly and helpful. Each day we were surprised with homemade treats and fresh produce from their garden. Such a great treat. It was a nice break to be able to make dinner instead of eating out all of the time. Although we were a bit outside of town, we still close to beautiful historic towns and amazing wineries. After a 4 week long vacation, our time at Casa Caldesi was one of our favorite parts.

The owner of the house are unbelievable friendly, helpful and warm-hearted people. They gave us nearly every day something out of their garden (tomatos, grap, potato...) and help us when every hint was needed. Also the daughter (Francesca) is unbelievable friendly and helpful. She gave us together with her parents a lot of hints what to do or to visit. In addition some practical hints for traveling via train and others are beneficial for us. We feel like "part of the family" and we only can recommend this location without any restriction. Especially Francesca gave us the feeling that she stands by for question 24 hours per day. Her hints for markets, flea markets, restaurants, shopping centers, parking rooms in Arezzo etc. are valuable. This family is unbelievable, unforgettable experience for us (we stay there togehter with the complete family 2 sons in the age of 15 and 18 and they also very very well)
