"My wife and I recently stayed in the one-bed house at Borghetta Calchinaia and enjoyed 10 days of wonderful early-October sunshine, combined with all the benefits of being slightly out of season: easy accss to the best retaurants (of which there are many close by) and to view the beautiful hill-top towns with their stupendous art; plus the over-abundance of fresh seasonal foods and wines.
The property has been lovingly restored, to the highest modern standards and sits in a beautiful garden with stunning views over the lake and surrounding hills."

"Forget Chiantishire - here's your chance to enjoy the real Tuscany, in this quirky castle packed with history. We enjoyed two weeks here with our family - loving the homely feel of the house, the pool and garden, enjoying great family meals, and exploring the neighbourhood. Anghiari was an unexpected gem of a medieval walled village with good restaurants and excellent local shops, while Sansepolcro was packed with interest including the market and the not-to-be-missed Aboca Museum. With an excellent train service from nearby Arezzo, the whole of Tuscany is easily accessible. Mario and Hermine were wonderful hosts and we thoroughly recommend Pianettole.
Reached by a winding track up the mountain, access is not for the faint-hearted, but quite manageable and we loved the views.
The main bathroom is up a fairly challenging old staircase, so not recommended for anyone with mobility problems."

"Seven close friends enjoyed this gorgeous home for one week. All went smoothly from the second we arrived,until the morning we left. Quiet town nearby and wasn't hard to get to the main grocery store.
If you are looking for a nicely furnished vacation home, with a lot of charm, great views and just peace and quiet, this is the place. We can't say enough good things about our experience."

"We loved this apartment in Anghiari! The bedrooms were smaller than we expected, but certainly ok, and the ceiling fans were essential as it was hot. The kitchen was stocked for our arrival with basic essentials and the living areas very comfortable. The upstairs bathroom was noisy (water pump) and small, but the downstairs bathroom with a washer/dryer (we didn't need the latter as it was so hot) was just great. Because the apartment is in the upper city wall, the views out the window were amazing, and by leaving the front door open, we had a nice cross breeze. And the same for the upstairs area. Lovely comfortable furnishings and our hosts were in residence just down the street so we enjoyed an evening with them at their apartment. Anghiari is the perfect medieval village, narrow winding streets (it's on a hill, so there's plenty of up and down) with flowers everywhere, quiet, clean, lovely. We were met at the top of Anghiari at a bar by Guiseppe (once we reached him) who led us to the property. We were able to park our car just outside the wall so had a very short walk to the apartment from the car. We tried three local restaurants, all good, especially Da Alighiero and Feudo del Vicario. Would recommend this apartment highly, I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Tuscany!"
