How to reach Loro Ciuffenna:

Take the A1 Motorway Milan-Rome towards the South until Valdarno Exit (after Florence and Incisa). Turn on the right and follow the advertise for Loro Ciuffenna (8km). Following the road you'll find Terranuova Bracciolini , La Penna e at the end Loro Ciuffenna.

At the first roundabout (in the centre there is a monument) , cross the Ponte Nuovo (New Bridge) and , at the crossroad, turn on the left towards the village. Go on along the ring road, then turn the second street on the right.

You will face with an iron eagle and next to it there is your apartment !

Loro Ciuffenna is a medioeval village , one of the most beautiful in Italy. It is on a hill , at the foot of Pratomagno mountains . As soon as you arrive you'll be faced by the charming skyline of the village which stands , like a crib, with its tower and its old houses . Living there you'll discover the narrow streets, the water mill , the stones of the little Ciuffenna creek , the beautiful Pieve Romanica in Gropina, only three kilometres far from the village. In less than an hour you can reach Florence (45 km) , Siena (50km) , Arezzo (28 km) and Rapolano famous for its thermal baths. Unfortunately there is no railway station so you need a car or you can take the bus to reach the closest station in Montevarchi. In the country you can find every thing : the foodshop, the chemist, bakers, clothes shops, a little supermarket (there are some bigger in Montevarchi and Terranuova) and shops with typical local products. Very close to the apartment there is a shoemaker's , a very famous one because he repairs the shoes by hand. Non very far from Loro Ciuffenna there is the Prada's shopping centre and another shopping centre “Il Leccio” where you can buy , with good prices , the most important italian brands :Dolce e Gabbana, Loro Piana , Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Armani, just to mention some of them. On the 25th April there is the “Trout Holiday” : the fishermen compete to fish the biggest and the largest quantity of trout. The fish are sold and cooked in the main square of the village. It's a nice experience with the inhabitans of the village and of the surroundings.

Beautiful apartment, perfect location and wonderful hostess

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautiful and the perfect location to travel around Tuscany. I visited Florence, Chianti, Cortona, Siena and Arezzo from this location. The town is very friendly and picturesque. Alda is simply wonderful and made me feel like family not just a guest. I was sad to leave and would love to go back again.

Owner's Response: Grazie, carissimi, troppo gentili! Per gli antichi Greci l'ospite era sacro, poiché dietro di lui poteva celarsi una divinità. Per me l'ospite è sacro in quanto persona e, come tale, merita rispetto, educazione e cortesia. Spero di avervi ancora qui.

  • 5 of 5

"We stayed at Aldas apartment for 2 weeks in September 2011.

Loro Chiufenna is a really nice village with several bars and restaurants plus a good butchers and pasticeire.

Brilliant base for touring Tuscany/the Chianti area.

Alda is fantastic - doesnt speak much English but communication still isnt a problem.The welcome pack of food/drink is the best we had in 4 months of staying in different areas of Italy and we were made to feel very welcome.

If we return to the same area we would go straight back to stay at Alda`s property"

"This accommodation is outstanding! Bathroom and everything else is very clean! Beautiful furniture with a nice decoration. The kitchen is nicely equipped. There is a flower garden with a garden house and pleasant seating outside or inside the garden house. We have appreciated surprising attention to detail everywhere. Our host was very pleasant and helpful, we felt very welcomed. We would choose this accommodation again!! Very quiet location, good spot to explore Tuscany from. We are recommending this to all our friends."

Enchanté

  • 5 of 5

Alda notre hôtesse a été d'un accueil sans commune mesure. Discrète mais disponible, elle a su rendre notre séjour enchanteur.

L'appartement que nous avions loué était très bien équipé, joliment décoré.

Je conseille à quiconque d'y aller.
