About Seccarille

My husband is Italian and I am Australian although we live in London with our two young daughters.

Seccarille purchased this villa in 1980

Why Seccarille chose Arezzo Area

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.

Spectacular villa!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

It is a very special place with fantastic vistas, superb facilities and a very well equipped villa. It was a very a very memorable holiday for the extended family. The place had great charm with understated elegance. Lazing around the pool, long walks in the hills and luncheons under the vines!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

When you think about visiting Italy, one of the first places that come to mind is Tuscany for it´s wine, food and cypress hills.

Villa Seccarille´s location is unique as you have limitless view of the horizon from most parts of the property, including the pool and yard, which allow you to organize romantic gatherings or fun family dinners to admire the sunset.

I have visited the property twice and left great memories. Planing to visit very soon again!!

Heaven is a place on earth

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a few times at Villa Seccarille with different groups of international friends, and every time we had a splendid time. The Villa does live up to expectations. We found that the description provided was accurate. If you are sporty, you have miles and miles of walks along the hills, in the midst of nature. If the next day you want to play tennis you have the court. If you want to challenge your friends to a game, you have the basketball court for a shoot out contest. Then you have a tennis table. If you have kids there is plenty of room to kick the football around. If you want to swim early in the morning or have an aperitivo by the pool, you have the pool.

The place is spectacular. Customer service was great throughout the stay and the Villa was squeaky clean when we got there. Locals were marvelous too. It was sunny most of the time, we had plenty of time in the sun, and for the few days it was wet and windy, we spent it playing cards and sipping Chianti by the fireplace.

When we wanted to go for a drink we would go to close-by San Sepolcro, a tiny medieval town where you can do a bit of bar hopping. It felt a little bit like being in Madrid once again. When we wanted to have lunch or dinner out, we found plenty of choices within 5 or 40 miles. Needless to say, the food in this area of Tuscany was great: mushrooms, cheese, meat, pasta and so on. Supermarkets, pharmacies and hospitals close-by were a plus, considering this is an isolated piece of heaven on earth. As me and my friends had a great time there, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to relax and share some good times with family and friends.

We stayed for a weekend in August and absolutely loved it. The views are magical. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle - the location is stunning and peaceful! We left feeling completely rested and relaxed!!!
