Overview

About the property

Farmhouse in Anghiari, Arezzo Province,Tuscany, Italy - On Tuscan/Umbrian Border

La Ceruglia is a place of peace, comfort and beauty where it's as easy to spend time together at the house as it is to explore Italy. Nestling in soft Tuscan hills, the main house is an old farmhouse and the smaller one - known as the 'capanno', sits beside it. Within walking distance of Anghiari, and its bars, restaurants, cafes and gelaterias, the house and garden are secluded and private. You may well want to stay close to home though, once you get to La Ceruglia, making pizza in the outside brick pizza oven, while the children play in the large private pool. Or perhaps you would like nights in front of the open log fire. Excellent for all age groups from Grannies to Grandchildren. Local support and advice is available.

Arezzo holds a huge antiques fair on the first weekend of every month. Anghiari itself is a stunning medieval fortified hilltop town steeped in ancient history and a national reputation for antique restoration and linen production. La Ceruglia is within comfortable reach for day trips to Florence, Prato, Urbino, Gubbio, Perugia, Asissi, Montepulciano, Montalchino, Pienza, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano and Orvieto.

About Lucy

We bought La Ceruglia as a ruin on our honeymoon and over the years we have seen our children learn to swim, make pasta, play games, be together and eat and drink good food and wine!

Lucy purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Why Lucy chose Anghiari

The two buildings comfortably accommodate families with either small children or teenagers but not unwelcoming for smaller parties. It is thoughtfully and well equipped. A brand new kitchen will be installed from April 2018.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The exceptionally large swimming pool and space for garden games, with the loggia for outside eating will keep you at home all day! The open fire, piano, guitar, extensive collection of board games and the library offer entertainment for evenings in.
