About Pier Francesco Negrotto Cambiaso
AREZZO COUNTRYHOUSE "Casa Dario" We spent most of our life together living in Rome and around the world thanks to our jobs in international organizations. In 2004 we decided to root our children in this unique area and, together with parents and brother, reactivated the farm, started to produce our typical gourmet products, restored some of the farmhouses and decided to share the beauty of our surroundings with selected guests.
Pier Francesco Negrotto Cambiaso purchased this Farmhouse in 1949
Why Pier Francesco Negrotto Cambiaso chose Anghiari
Casa Dario is part of Fattoria il Castellaccio, a property belonging to our family since 6 generations; thus, we did not choose Scille but we inherited the blessing of having available this special place. The absolute absence of mechanic sounds, especially at night, mirrors its remoteness while the farmhouse is located in an area within easy reach of some among the best spots in central Italy.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
At Casa Dario you can not only taste the outcome of our efforts, but also participate in the different phases of the preparations like jams, patés, smoked duck, wild boar and roe deer! Other available activities include: - Italian cooking courses.- guided excursions in the countryside (forests and meadows) for flora and fauna recognition. - guided tours in the surrounding Cities of Art. - mushrooms (mainly during autumn) and truffles (during spring, summer and autumn) collecting, and recognition hints.

Stayed for a week. Great welcome by Pier Francesco and Simonetta. A beautiful farmhouse with plenty of space inside and out. The view from the gardens are wonderful.
Owing to the rural nature of the property, a hire car is an essential if you want to explore Tuscany I would say. The local town of Anghiari is lovely with lots of little trattoria.
Would recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all! Would certainly stay again in the future if still available.
Villa in Arezzo
Pier and his wife were GREAT to work with! The villa was well stocked and the showers were very good. Getting to the villa was OK (the mountain was at least 20-30 minutes to get up).
We asked Pier and his wife to get a local chef to prepare a Tuscan meal for us and they found a perfect lady for us! The food was outstanding! I recommend this villa to those who want to experience the "true" Italy life! Also, the screens on the windows were a nice touch so that you could get the breeze but not the bugs.
Relaxing under the Tuscan sun
Beauitful property off the beaten path in Tuscany. Remote location but access fo stores within and restaurants withing 30 mins driving. The scenery is something I'll never forget along with the amazing pool. If you want to stay in Tuscany and have a car to bop around in this is the place to stay. Also very easy drive to Florence for a day trip!
Also tip the drive way looks like it is the entrance to a restaurant but you need to go straight through the parking lot and keep going up a gravel road it will be on your right up and hill.
Thank you for your kindly rewue! Have a good come back at home. Pier Francesco e Simonetta
A Tuscan Dream
This amazing apartment is on the second floor of a 500 year old farm house. The views are wonderful from every window .
We arrived in a heat wave and spent our visit swimming and lounging by the pool which looks over the valley and Tuscan hills.
The simple kitchen was well supplied with cook wear and dishes. And the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. Pier and his family were great hosts, responded quickly to all of our inquiries.
The house is in a very rural location so it is quiet with the occasional car driving past on the gravel road and many bird songs. For travellers who need a little reprieve from intense tourism this is the perfect place!
I look forward to returning again!
Thank you for your kindly rewue. We are very happy that your stay in our farm house was been pleasant. We had a short time to stay together..... . but we hope in a next time. Hope you a good return in your country. Pier Francesco e Simonetta
Beautiful hilltop serenity
I loved this 500 year old farmhouse with stone floors and beamed ceilings. I had the building all to myself. Pier-Francesco, Simonetta, and Hamid were welcoming and extremely helpful hosts. I was greeted with a bottle of Chianti and a bowl of fresh-picked cherries. Each room had its own modern bathroom. Anghiari is the nearest city about 10 kms away and you can find everything you need there. It's about a two hour drive to Pisa and one to Florence or the heart of the Chianti region where I went for some challenging but soul-enriching bike rides. There are gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside from where the house sits atop a hill. It was a bit of a challenge to find (the start of the actual road up to the house looks like the driveway of a restaurant so I drove past it twice) but well worth it. Grazie for the great experience.
grazie di come hai descritto il tuo soggiorno nella nostra farm house .E' stato per noi un vero piacere conoscerti e se nel tuo prossimo giro del mondo....in bicicletta passerai da queste parti ci farà molto piacere rivederti. Se invece verrai – naturalmente in auto – con la tua straordinaria famiglia, ci farà molto piacere conoscerla.
Pier Francesco e Simonetta
Maravillosa Casa de Campo
Junto con mi esposo y 5 hijos, hemos pasado 3 semanas inolvidables en esta linda casa. Tiene todo lo necesario, de muy buen gusto e impecable.
La ubicación es ideal para conocer la Toscana y otras regiones como la Umbria.
La mitad de los dias saliamos a conocer y la otra mitad nos quedábamos en casa para disfrutar el maravilloso paisaje, los paseos por el bosque buscando venados y jabalíes, puestas de sol increíbles y por la noche gozar del cielo lleno de estrellas.
Gracias Pier Francesco, Simonetta y Giacomo por ser anfitriones tan cálidos y generosos. Sobretodo, por brindarnos su amistad, lo cual hizo toda la diferencia para que fuera una estancia inolvidable.
Con mucho afecto, Francisco y Viviana
