Arezzo chateau / country house description

Our medieval country House is named HOUSE ON THE ROCK because was built on a part of Casentino's mountain. Historic documents describe it at a Camaldolese Monastry in the XI A.C.. Many architectural featuresand details prove this origin. It was only natural to turn Monasterial hospitalityinto a warm is to be a warm and cozy home whereyou can find comfort and relaxation along the famous VIA ROMEA (the old main road linking Rome with Florence and north Italy).
With a complete restoration done to return that original charm and beauty of the region to the HOUSE ON THE ROCK, you can experience the conforting atmosphere.
We prepare for your arrival, thanks to my wife Marina's cooking passion with a great pizza in the firewood oven.
Our guests enjoy a great breakfast made with our homemade marmelade. Marina prepares them with passion and love using the fruits grown on the hills property!
These include cherries, apple, plums, figs, mulberries and more:
depending on the season you come to visit us you can pick these fruits directly from the trees!
Durimg lunch it is possible to enjoy the pleasure of our typical tuscan oil prepared with our olives.
Relax in your bedroom gazing at typical tuscany ceiling, have a drink while sitting by the old fireplace, enjoy your breakfast on the gorgeous terrace overlooking the breathtaking view of the hills.
in addition this summer a nice swimming pool will be ready enhancing the special relaxing moments viewing the surrounding Tuscan Hills!
we think all the Borgo in ecologic way. In fact in the property there is an important source of groundwater absolutely drinkable and for energy we use big fotovoltaic shelter.
With 'natural' stone reliefs on the bedroom walls, classic and cmnfortable furniture, make this HOUSE ON THE ROCKS your relaxing getaway while in italy!
