Villa Arcaia is a fine country residence on a hilltop, minutes away
from the Tuscan-Umbrian border, surrounded by an idyllic countryside, a patchwork of arable fields, citadels, lakes and wooded hillsides.
Set in wide park of cypress trees and olive groves, Villa Arcaia is a three-building structure comprising four separate and wholly
independent units, that can sleep up to 28 people, with facilities for the disabled. Guests are sure to have a welcome that is courteous and discriminating, and at the same time heartfelt.
All the rooms have their own character. The four units vary in size
and ensure that all guests have complete privacy. All the bedrooms are furnished with taste and come with heating and air conditioning. The accommodation is highly flexible and can cater for all possible requisites guests may have. Whether you are having a special gathering and need a large structure or wish to have a pleasant and relaxing time away from home, Villa Arcaia is the ideal setting. Contact us to book the whole residence or any one of its units.
The main house, Bellosguardo, is a typical foursquare turreted
country house dating back to the nineteenth century. It underwent a radical restyling in the 1960s by a slghtly eccentric actress, who turned it into an exclusive venue for parties and receptions. Keeping in this tradition great care was taken to preserve the irresistible atmosphere of the “swinging sixties” during the most recent restoration. From the main entrance, the spacious Bellosguardo opens to an elegant living room on the left-hand side as well as to a dining room, a comfortable and well-equipped kitchen on the right-hand side. Furnishings are eclectic in style: Italian-designed collectors’ items, antique furniture, a large working fireplace, carved wood panelling in addition to a number of modern-day amenities. Bellosguardo also features a wide terrace with an enchanting view over the Umbrian countryside that can be accessed from the kitchen, living room as well as from the outside; a veranda in part, the terrace is equipped for barbecues and is wheel-chair accessible.
Bellosguardo's two upper floors are accessed through an elegant
staircase. Two luxurious suites with views over the countryside (a
working fireplace in one of them) and a truly remarkable bathroom for its size and décor are on the second floor. A double-bedroom with windows on two-sides, a bathroom and a small terrace are on the third floor. From the third floor, absolutely enchanting views can be enjoyed over the whole Tuscan and Umbrian countryside.
A few steps away are the two buildings known as i buccheri, former
farmers homes that have been beautifully refurbished to provide
accommodation. All appartments have been kept in classic Tuscan
style with tiled ceilings and wooden beams interwining, and feature
rustic furniture in the best local handicraft tradition. All have
heating and air conditioning.
The larger of the two buildings comprises Il Patio and Le Logge while the smaller one is Il Capanno which hosts 2. Il Patio on the ground floor has a large and furnished patio with two entrances through which the bedrooms and bathrooms can be easily accessed, particularly attractive living quarters with a working fireplace as well as a comfortable and fully equipped kitchen. It can host up to 8 people. Le Logge are on the first floor accessible from an external staircase. It includes a living-cum-dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It hosts up to 6 people. For its guests' exclusive use, a charming terrace equipped for barbecues.
All over the garden, guests will find areas in the open as well as
verandas and porches, where to relax and indulge in reading or meditation.
Altogether the estate spreads over 26000 m² of land, of which about 9000 m² is taken up by the garden and terracing, with a wall enclosing the buildings. The remaining land is used to grow fodder for animals and as an extensive olive grove.
