Anghiari apartment description

Our wonderful English speaking agent Giuseppe Dini will meet you at the town car park (free parking) and escort you to our apartment just inside the arched entry through the historic defensive walls - no cars are allowed inside. You climb two sets of stairs to our top-floor apartment which stretches the full depth of the 12th Century building; the two front windows give superb views across the Tiber valley to the distant Appenine mountains.

The light-filled living/dining/kitchen area rises to a raftered ceiling. While the character of the 800 year-old building has been maintained, with medieval floor tiles and ancient timbered beams, the kitchen and bathrooms are modern. On the 15 foot wall in the living room hangs a striking painting by Vincenzo Calli. The bedroom,with ensuite bathroom, has the same spectacular view as the living room, overlooking the ancient walls, the Tiber Valley and the Appenine Mountains in the distance. Downstairs in the entry hall there is a second half bathroom, plus washer and dryer.

Fans help keep the place cool in summer, and central heating with radiators keeps it warm in winter.

The housekeeper Fiametta lives in the apartment below ours, and changes the sheets and towels. She is very helpful in case of any problems. Anything she cannot solve will be dealt with by Giuseppe quickly.

                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: My twin sister and I fell in love with this place and have spent two years restoring it to what we think is perfection. We love restoring old buildings, and like to fit all modern facilities without changing the historical authenticity of the place. Since we now own three apartments in the same building, we have been able to arrange wonderful family gatherings at Christmas, Easter and during the summer months. We are now retired university teachers, so go there frequently, since any time of year has its own rewards.

                          Why Anghiari:
                          The 800 year old walled town on the Tuscany/Umbrian borders has earned its place in the Italian register of 'The 100 Most Beautiful Small Towns of Italy'. We chose Anghiari because it is so beautiful and unspoiled by too many tourists. The local people are friendly, helpful and always willing to try their English. Anghiari has two museums, medieval churches, six good restaurants, all the shops you might need, and good bus services to bigger towns like Sansepolcro and Arezzo, which has fast train services to Florence and Milan and Rome.
