Seccarille purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Seccarille chose Anghiari
Villa Seccarille has a magical setting, overlooking rolling hills and a valley with no views of any other buildings except an ancient monasteries. There is a real sense of peace and escape, whilst at the same time lots of activities from swimming in the private pool, to lunches under the vines or hiking through the surrounding nature parks.
What makes this Villa unique
The local government has invested heavily in the area, mapping out lots of trails through the surrounding nature parks, which provide the unique opportunity to explore the area and be immersed in nature. The panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valley, which can be enjoyed whilst swimming in the pool, playing tennis, eating under the vines or on the verandah make Villa Seccarille a totally unique holiday destination.

Stunning views, great facilities and in a beautiful location
We had a superb holiday at Seccarille. The villa is in a beautiful part of north Tuscany with breathtaking views across the forested hills.
The villa has a large pool, which everyone loved, with beautiful, immaculately-kept terraces and garden around it. We also made daily use of the villa's tennis court, one of Seccarille's big attractions. Lunches and dinners on the villa's first floor terrace were always magical. Kitchen facilities are great and the villa has everything you need. A gardener keeps everything looking perfect and Jeremy, the friendly local manager, deals with any problems or questions instantly. The bedrooms/bathrooms are a touch dated, but we spent so little time indoors that it did not really matter. Showers are high-pressure, which we thought was the most important thing.
There are fantastic walking trails through the hills and it is only a short drive to Anghiari, a delightful walled Tuscan city which has very good restaurants. A perfect all-round holiday. We have rented many villas in Tuscany over the years and this is one we definitely want to go back to. Mark W
Thank you for your lovely review. We hope you visit us again soon.
Beautiful, unique villa
The Villa Secarrille was huge, beautifully furnished and equipped and set in a magnificent location looking down the valley.
The pool was enormous and child-safe without any ugly, obvious fencing. Basketball court. tennis court, table tennis, sunken trampoline ...
We loved it and will definitely consider going back
Thank you for choosing to holiday at our beloved villa. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again.
A beautiful spacious villa with incredible views
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in this beautiful villa. It is very spacious and the grounds are stunning. There's plenty to keep the children amused with tennis, basketball, a large swimming pool and well equipped media room.The villa has a brand new fully equipped kitchen for those that like to cook and a fabulous terrace to dine on. The bedrooms are all very comfortable with plenty of space for storage.
While this villa is perfect for a relaxing holiday just sitting by the pool, it is also well situated for trips to local villages and towns, as well as day trips to Florence and Siena. There is a fantastic restaurant walking distance away, and plenty of places to eat around a 15min drive away in the beautiful Anghiari.
Jeremy, who manages the property, was really helpful and easy to contact, and the villa spotlessly clean. We also had good customer service from the owners, who replied quickly to email queries and refunded our security deposit within a few days of arriving home.
Overall this is an amazing villa which I have no hesitation in recommending. I hope we get to back someday.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed our villa and hope you visit us again (:
Excellent, magnificent view, Jeremy helpful and adorable, the upperfloor
perfect, very nice fourniture, pool and tennis very agréable
Points of concern : the basement and the showers shoud be renovated.
I'd seen the photos but nothing could prepare me for the beauty of this villa. Looking out over the Tuscan hills, surrounded by dozens of walks through wildflowers and Tuscan wilderness, a terrace that was perfect for breakfasts, long and lazy lunches, and watching the sun go down with a Campari spritz in hand.
The abundance of fig trees and blackberries around the property were fun for kids and adults alike, and the pool was hard to draw yourself away from - plenty of lounges to loll on and big umbrellas to give shade.
The villa itself is well equipped, spacious and beautifully appointed - it features all the little things that make the difference when renting a holiday house - plenty of crockery, beautiful linen napkins, and lots of gorgeous glassware - every meal felt like a special occasion.
I'd definitely recommend day trips in the area to local towns and restaurants, but you could just as easily stay at the villa and be very, very happy. The Cantucci biscuits from the little deli in nearby town Manzi are a must!
I can't wait to return one day - it's a magical spot.
You won't want to leave!
This wasn't our first stay at Seccarille and plan for it to not be the last! The setting really is breathtaking - sweeping views, big skies, rolling hills, farmhouses and vineyards, as far as the eye can see. Make sure to catch at least one sunrise from the terrace. Speaking of, the terrace (which looks out over the pool and beyond) was the heart of our stay and is the ideal environment for late breakfasts, long lunches, apertivo and of course, large dinners. (The table seats at least 14) We also loved having lunches at the long table set up under a grapevine covered arbor in the garden. If you can tear yourself away from Seccarille, Agriturismo Mafuccio is very close by and a must! We could have eaten there everyday.
The villa itself is spacious, comfortable and chic, and aside from the pool the grounds also include tennis courts and a basketball hoop. If you like to walk - and we do - you'll find yourself spoiled for choice! We hiked a different trail everyday and just loved this aspect of our stay.
Between the eating (!) and drinking, the lying by the pool, the hiking, the tennis, the chance to do nothing or to explore nearby medieval towns, everyone's needs are met. It's very easy to achieve a state of total relaxation at Seccarille, but very difficult to leave!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Seccarille and hope that you come back again soon!
