Singerna Villa and Farmhouse, 5 and 6 bedroom villas with own private pools
The farmhouse is 300 years old and has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Original features have been retained and materials reused wherever possible to preserve its original character.
On the ground floor there is a large sitting room with antique furniture and a grand piano! There is a huge fireplace so the villa is incredibly snug during the cooler winter months. A door leaves down to a large terrace which has tables and chairs for al fresco dining and has beautiful views across the valley.
The kitchen is large and has a big table in the middle for really sociable meals. There is a separate television/gaming room.
Details of the bedrooms, bathrooms and outdoor features can be found below and please take time to read the Villa's details which outlines all the wonderful things that can be done in the area.

It is now the holiday home of Sue's three sons and nine grandchildren who regularly fly over from the USA, New Zealand and the UK to spend family holidays together in the villa. We hope that you have a fabulous holiday at Casa Singerna.

Fantastic Location with Amazing Views
Our party of 10 had actually rented the villa, which is set in the hills and has the most stunning views from all areas. Booking was really easy, as well, it was so helpful being able to discuss things in English with Mel, who gave us lots of really useful information. The rooms were large, which is unusual in most villas in Italy. The cleanliness was of a very high standard, along with the pool being beautifully clean. Whilst we were there we were able to look around the farmhouse, which turned out to be bigger than the villa, but equally as clean. The kitchen areas area set out so well in both properties and they both have several terraces with large tables, where you can enjoy the breath taking views whilst eating outside. One thing we noticed was that it was so peaceful here, although it was quite near to main towns where there were several big supermarkets to stock up in. You will need to high a car though, we had booked two from the airport before we travelled and it turned out to be a very cost effective. There are some fantastic restaurants in this area and we had some great days out in Siena, Florence and Pisa. I would not normally make the effort to write a review, but was so impressed with the natural beauty of Casa Singerna, along with the amenities, that I thought it worth letting others know. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your lovely review of the villa. We are so happy that you enjoyed your holiday and would love to welcome you again. Best wishes
Great house, beautiful views, spotlessly clean.
We had some lovely walks down by the lake and through the woods, interspersed with trips to Sienna and Florence. Perfect location. Wonderful holiday
Thank you for your wonderful review of Casa Singerna. We look forward to welcoming you again
There is a famous antique market held in Arezzo on the first Sunday of each month and the preceding Saturday (except for August). There are other good antique stores in Sansepolcro, Anghiari, Montone and Gubbio. For traditional ceramics you can visit Deruta, Gubbio or Passignano sul Trasimeno. There are several outlet stores for shoes and designer Italian clothing in the vicinity, including a Prada outlet in Montevarchi. You will find more shopping options listed in the house book available in the house. Each day of the week you can visit a local market in a different neighbouring villages. These markets offer produce, clothing and other household goods. As you would expect from Tuscany, there are some super sightseeing trips to experience. Amongst the many sites are the following. Anghiari, voted one of Italy’s most special medieval hilltop towns is nine minutes away. Arezzo, of Etruscan origin with Roman influence in the Chianti wine district is on the main railway line and is thirty minutes away. Assisi, St Francis, a spiritual haven, is an hour away. Caprese Michelangelo, birthplace of the famous sculptor is fifteen minutes away. Città di Castello in Umbria has many museums, churches and hand painted ceramics, just twenty five minutes from the villa. Florence, with its Duomo, Old Bridge, Uffizi Gallery and Medici family palaces is ninety minutes away. La Verna, a significant Monastery and sanctuary with breathtaking views of the Casentino National Park is thirty minutes away. The university town of Perugia with it many churches and museums is an hour away. Sansepolcro, the birthplace of Piero della Francesca and his ‘Resurrection’ Museo Civico is just twenty minutes’ drive. To enjoy the pleasure of eating at the villa without the trouble of preparing the food, meals can be arranged for you. The focus is on home-style regional cuisine. Pricing is based on the number of people and the selected menu. Please inquire for more details. A complementary basket of fruit and some breakfast items will be ready for you so you don't have to hurry to shop. Weddings and special birthday events are fabulous at the villa. We have had dinner parties for thirty or more guests seated on the pool terrace. If you would like to throw a party for more guests, we can arrange accommodation in other local villas. Guests can be collected from Perugia, Pisa, Florence, Bologna or Rome airports however we recommend having a car for exploring locally.
