Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We love old walled towns, old buildings, castles and churches. My husband and I have known Anghiari for twenty years. As academics teaching at American universities, we get the chance to take long Summer breaks. We love the riches of art and architecture around us. We are also walkers; there are great opportunities for walks ranging from strolls along the banks of the Tiber to serious mountain trekking signposted by the Italian Alpine Club. There are weekly concerts arranged by the town every week in Summer, plus the acclaimed Anghiari Music Festival every year. Everyone remembers the views - dawn over the misty Tiber and then the brilliant colors of the fields and the wonderfully pure and unpolluted mountain air. Then as the sun sinks in the evening, the long shadows produce unforgettable images of rural Tuscany. The wild flowers in the Spring are amazing.

Why Anghiari:
This apartment is an elegant Renaissance apartment with soaring ceilings and vista windows looking out over the green Tiber Valley. The building is on the broadwalk on top of the medieval walls of the ancient city of Anghiari, designated by the Italian Tourist Board as one of the 100 prettiest villages in Italy. When I first came to Anghiari 20 years ago it was not well known, but for me it was love at first sight and now this 800 year old medieval walled village of Anghiari is officially one of Italy’s prettiest villages. The local people are very friendly, especially to visiting Americans, since it was American GIs who liberated the city during WW2. Nestling in the loveliest hills of Tuscany, with Umbria easily accessible, we have found driving to all the other hill villages easy, but none are prettier. The six restaurants and three pizza shops are excellent, but we also love to cook easy Italian dishes ourselves using marvelous fresh vegetables from the market. For a village there are a surprising number of food shops, and two great bakeries, various antique shops, two pharmacies, and a local olive press which has been in business since 1422.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Built on a narrow pedestrians-only street in the medieval quarter, the apartment is in a six hundred year old building. The rooms have wonderful high ceilings that are cool in summer. All rooms are on ground floor level, so there are no steps. Our English speaking agent is always available to help and answer questions, and our housekeeper keeps every room immaculate. Guests continue to comment that staying in Anghiari is quiet and peaceful, far from traffic and modern day noise. For us, it is home from home, and going back to Anghiari every summer is delightful.
