Sansepolcro apartment description

Relax in this delightfully spacious 1070 square feet central apartment on the ground floor of the owner's 100 year old house. The apartment, just in front of the town's ancient 15th century walls, features a large private secluded garden ideal for al fresco dining (for your use only). All previous guests have enjoyed the homely and welcoming atmosphere. The ancient walls make it VERY cool in the summer. Guests have never complained about the heat! The neighbourhood and town is very safe and there is safe parking outside. WIFI INTERNET works very well. There is also a computer if you can't bring your own.
A car is not necessary you can use public transport to most places. THERE IS A BUS FROM ROME AROUND 2 30PM THAT ARRIVES IN SANSEPOLCRO. WE CAN PROVIDE DETAILS. Catered meals and cooking course provided on request.
We can arrange for wine tasting in a local agriturismo that makes wine in Arezzo. 15 euros per head with snacks.

The large open plan sitting room has high ceilings and four very comfortable sofas, stereo, tv (satellite British and American channels) and a very wide selection of English DVDs and books. It leads into to the dining room with its seating for six people and a cosy fireplace, where you can roast meat or chestnuts. An extra double sofabed is nearby for more guests/children. We have just added another single sofa bed. An extensive selection of books, guides and maps is on hand.

A solid oak custom-made staircase leads to the mezzanine (gallery) bedroom with built-in wardrobes and plenty of cupboard space, queen size bed (160 x2metres or 63 inches wide by 79 inches long) and a computer with 24 internet access. Please note there are stairs to the bedrooms so if you need the bathroom during night and have mobility problems this could be an issue.

As well as a kettle, toaster, American coffee maker you’ll find everything you need for your first night (milk, coffee, cereals, pasta, wine etc).

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1950

                  About the owner: The house has been in my husband's family since the 50s and we love the proximity to the town and the great features of our apartment rental.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sansepolcro:
                  The owner was born in this house and has always lived here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Property is in an ideal position as you can walk to the centre with shops, restaurants in 2 minutes and there is plenty of parking just outside. This is a unique benefit not easily found elsewhere. If you are coming for a long stay an English speaking person on hand to help with any problems (e.g. health etc) can be a real plus point.
