What makes this Farmhouse unique
The best part of being here is peace and quiet. It really feels as though you've had that 'stop the world I want to get off' moment! It was this that made us fall in love with the place. The views are a constant source of wonder and never cease to amaze.

The best experience we have ever had!
We have just left our beautiful home in Tuscany for the past month and we already miss it. It was the most beautiful property that in our wildest imagination we would expect. I can not recommend “our little piece of heaven” enough. We were treated royally by the very best hosts we have ever had. (And we have used many vacation rentals.) The care and attention to their property and to us was beyond our wildest dreams. It was a place where dreams were realized.
Thank you for this lovely review! It was a pleasure having you to stay and if we ever manage to get Stateside we promise to visit :)
We were delighted with the tranquility and wonderful setting of the property
John and Sue are super hosts - they have equipped the property very generously . It is a real home from home . The drive is a little bumpy but not difficult to master . The sweeping views of the Tuscan hills are inspiring - this is a place to relax and spend time away from the normal rush . The description in the details does the property justice .
Many thanks for the 5* review! So glad you had a lovely holiday.
Beautiful house and pool in stunning location.
We loved our week and didn’t want to leave! The house is beautiful, spacious and comfortable and the surrounding countryside and views are breathtaking. Sue and Johnny are the perfect hosts: generous, friendly and kind but discreet and unobtrusive. We really appreciated the delicious prosecco and Chianti, and the many supplies generously provided. A really special place. Also incredibly well equipped.
We used the house as a great base to visit nearby towns such as Anghiari (an unspoilt revelation) Sansepolcro (the Museo Civico gives a great intro to the work of Piero Della Francesca) Arezzo (his masterpiece cycle of frescoes in San Francesco) Cortona and Città Di Castello (the pinacoteca is worth a visit for the remarkable Renaissance palazzo alone) We ate excellent, inexpensive lunches in all these places and sampled a great deal of ice cream. At the end of each day we would happily return to the house for a swim in the late sunshine and a drink on the terrace admiring the view. Can’t recommend highly enough!
Thank you for this great review! It was a pleasure having you to stay and we hope to welcome you back sometime.
Our first time to Tuscany
Very comfortable, peaceful villa with superb scenery. The hosts were very helpful if we had any queries, or questions about the local area. They also booked restaurants for us at places they recommended and aided our party when a puncture was discovered.
Good facilities with all the usual items needed plus a few more. Plenty of space to find a quiet spot to read or relax.
Something to consider is the road up to the property which is steep and rocky. Try to make sure you have a suitable vehicle, see comment above!
The pool is lovely but a little bit of a trek up to and with only a ladder into it, it was difficult for one of our party to use.
We had very warm weather and the inclusion of a fan in our bedroom was very welcome.
Be aware that this property is quite remote and it will take time to get to any towns. The local area is, however, very picturesque and well worth exploring. The Tuscan people were very understanding of our poor Italian, helpful and friendly.
Thank you for the 5* review. In response to a couple of your points, we must reiterate that it is stated, and shown in the photographs, that the pool is set higher from the house to enjoy the wonderful view and privacy that we can offer. It is also stated that this property is remote and accessed by a typical Italian white road and this is all part of the experience. We were only too happy to get the tyre repaired for you and don't forget, you won the award for the first guests to get a puncture here :)
AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!! Review is a 5 Star ++++++
This is an exceptional rental. We were a party of 4 and used all three bedrooms. All in our group found the home comfortable and wished we had more time to just hangout and enjoy the property. The property was actually better than the pics from the website. The views amazing! The pool is located a short distance from the home and strategically located on a elevated platform which provides for lots of sun. We found the property to be immaculate and well maintained. The home had a comfortable and homey feel but very modern and functional. The owners Sue and John went above and beyond in accommodating us. We were unable to rent a car the first evening we arrived and they graciously drove us the 40 minute ride to the car rental office the next day. Since our visit was early fall (mid October) with cool temperatures, the owners offered to make a fire in the 2 wood burning units each evening. It was soooooo nice to come home to warm fires after sightseeing all day in Florence and local areas in the Tuscan hillsides near the property. I cannot say enough about the John and Sue's helpfulness and willingness to provide exceptional service. They were discreet but always near to assist with any needs or suggestions regarding local restaurants, touring nearby and in Florence etc. You couldn't make a better choice than this property whether you just want to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounding views on the property or you just need a comfortable home base during your visit to surrounding areas. We strongly recommend this property and we will definitely return! Thanks so much John and Sue, you really know how to make folks feel welcome.
Lovely home poor road
This is a lovely home but the road is very poor. A major concern for anyone who would rent this property. It put a major damper on out trip. If you did not have 4 wheel drive(which we did not have) and even @ that the road takes away from the lovely farm house. Too bad but I can not suggest this property to others.
Sorry you felt like that Joseph however a people carrier with six large adults was asking a lot for a typical Italian white road and it didn't seem to stop your daily excursions so we are pleased you still managed to visit and enjoy all the beautiful places in the area. All our other guests have managed to overcome the bumps without complaint or difficulty, however we understand the road may be a bit challenging for New Yorkers, especially after enjoying days out wine tasting. It's a shame you concentrated this review on one negative aspect, we know how delighted you were with our recommendation of the local oil mill though it's very telling that you also complained about a nearby restaurant - no one ever has complaints for that restaurant! We are glad that all our previous guests are more than happy to recommend our house in its lovely private setting and have given us positive 5* reviews so we will take encouragement from that.
This 300-year-old farmhouse house nestles high in the hills, mid-way between the village of Caprese Michelangelo and the medieval town of Anghiari. It is set in 20 acres of natural Tuscan countryside and offers total privacy and seclusion, along with spectacular scenery. These stunning views are ideal for painting and photography. The house is perfectly situated for that relaxing, 'away from it all' escape yet is within easy reach of the historical and cultural delights that La Verna, Poppi, Arezzo, Cortona, Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia, Siena and Florence all have to offer. Day trips to Rome are also possible. The farmhouse is close to a marked route so is ideally situated for walking the surrounding hills. Also in walking distance is a restaurant offering local produce and the small hamlet of Manzi which has a grocery store selling fresh pasta and home-made cakes. Oil and Wine tastings are available at the local oil mill. Anghiari and Sansepolcro hold markets every week and both towns have a selection of wonderful restaurants. Cookery classes, wine tours, treks in the Tuscan hills and horse riding can be arranged on request. Enjoy the many local festivals that take place throughout the year.
