Overview

About the property

Lovely spacious living space, 2 charming bedrooms, 2 beautiful bathrooms

This elegant, generous and luminous apartment is settled on the ground floor and each bedroom has it's own outside space. The different levels of a few steps will give you a comfortable and spacious feeling . It is very tastefully furnished with all modern equipment including wi-fi and i-pod connection and a printer.

Photos can not reproduce the reality which is even more beautiful and stunning. The pool is only about 20 m from the terrace, so you can sunbath also in your own garden without renouncing on the pool. Very quiet and peaceful surroundings with 360 gr. views on fields of sunflowers, wheat or corn and at the same time very good restaurants close by and also shops, supermarkets, bars for the cappuccino and a lot of culture if you seek for it.

The master-bedroom has a 180 x 200 m bed, is spacious with a romantic small cabinet and in built wardrobe. The bathroom is right besides a few steps down with a lovely big shower all marble tiles but still in a rustic style. A little proper terrace completes the privacy and spacious layout of this bedroom while the second bedroom has direct access to a little garden part, a smaller bed 160 x 200 m and a big ensuite bath room with a shower and a bath tub, also here it is satin marble tiled and respects the rural-elegant style of the whole holiday apartment. A Baby bed (Cot) is also available for Toddlers up to 2 years.

The living area is divided on two levels one with a big hand made Library, crafted by local carpenters, a huge big open fire place which can be seen and enjoyed also from the kitchen with it's arched window and door. The little stairs which leads from the living room with a big sofa and two very comfortable armchairs down to the kitchen makes it a whole spacious room but separated at the same time.

The habitable kitchen is more of a modern design with a big modern refrigerator, nice granite top and a comfortable big dining table for six persons.

A little storage room completes the apartment inside and gives space for luggage p.e.

From the huge kitchen arched door you reach your first terrace and around the corner a lovely lawn, all for you.

You can also see down to the pool and on the sunflower- or wheat fields and at the same time have a look onto the pool. It is a very inviting, charming and comfortable apartment and our guest have spent wonderful times here, enjoying a sophisticated Tuscany. A getaway which regenerates and allows you to relax.

About Elise Van De Wal

After my husband has worked in Italy for several years, we fell in love with it and we searched for a second home in Tuscany, giving us the opportunity to enjoy the country, the food, the landscape, the culture and the people.

Elise Van De Wal purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Elise Van De Wal chose Marciano della Chiana

Because it convinced us with it`s beautiful views, the luxurious feel of the internal space and it offers so much light. Garden and park are beautiful, harmonious and elegant and offer privacy. It is the best we have seen.We are travelling around the world for business and were looking for something easy to reach, quiet but sophisticated, traditional but with comfort.

What makes this apartment unique

Light, quiet and a pool directly in front of the exclusive garden, so it gives you the feeling of private pool and you can check if you have younger children from your terrace. All the pro`s of a corner property with two sides free and protected in the back.

Beautiful home to use to see the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with another couple, and used this home as our base. Home was set up perfectly for two couples, with lots of space, two beautiful bedrooms, and each with private bath, on either side of the apartment. The patio has a perfect view, as does each window, in each room.

Visiting Arezzo, Assisi, Montepulciano, and Siena - as some of the highlights was easy, and involved a beautiful drive each day. Coming home each night to our beautiful home, with a well appointed kitchen, great gardens and comfortable beds made our trip extra luxurious. We absolutely loved this apartment. It was quiet, convenient, comfortable. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Eine Perle in der Toscana

  • 5 of 5

Eine Perle,das Appartement il Pozzale in Badicorte, ein Traum, das Beste an Unterbringung was wir uns wünschen konnten. Von der gelungenen Anlage - über den Garten - bis hin zur Inneneinrichtung einfach in allen Punkten herausragend und perfekt.

Die Stunden, die wir auf der hübschen Terrasse genossen oder im grossen Pool mit Aussicht über die mit Sonnenblumen bedeckten Hügel, dazu natürlich das wunderschöne Appartement - es waren allesamt Highlights, auch für unsere Kinder.

Das Appartement ist sehr luxuriös, geschmackvoll und im Stil der Toscana ausgestattet. Es wurde von Besitzern mit viel Liebe restauriert.

Die Innenräume bestehen aus einer grossen Essküche mit Aussicht über die wunderschöne Landschaft, einem gemütlichen Wohnzimmer, zwei Schlafzimmern mit angrenzend zwei grossen Badezimmern. Die Betten sind einfach fabelhaft!

Es gibt viele ausgezeichnete Restaurants in der direkten Umgebung, für uns war es aber auch sehr entspannend um mit der Familie im Appartement zu kochen, essen und geniessen von der Aussicht.

Arezzo, Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, Lucignano und auch Florence sind sehr gut zu erreichen und wunderbare Tagesausflüge.

Wir können jedem diese Perle empfehlen, im besonderem Familie und Freunden, weil wir uns sicher sind dass die im Appartement verbrachte Zeit eine besondere Erfahrung war, die wir sehr gern mit anderen teilen möchten. Vielen Dank an die Besitzer!! Peter, Katrin und Kinder

'Il Pozzale” in Badicorte is located in the Val di Chiana, which was praised by Goethe in his journeys to Italy because of its breathtaking beauty (more beautiful than the Val d'Arno even though Val d'Arno has 'the name'). Very close to Badicorte is Marciano della Chiana, a small town with 3057 inhabitants in the province of Arezzo. Florence is 85 km away, Arezzo 20 km, Siena 52 km, Perugia 73 km, and Cortona 22 km. The lovely medieval town of Monte San Savino is just 5 km away. The area around Badicorte is the typical Tuscan landscape with its luscious hillsides and open fields. The river Chiana runs through the area and brings a rich flora with it. Infinite expanses of wheat fields, vineyards and olive groves surround the Pozzale. The Chiana Valley in ancient times was an important trading centre, especially for Etruscan jewellery and ceramics. Witnesses of settlements and military conflicts in the 6th century BC can be visited in the archaeological museum in Arezzo. Under the Medici and the Florentine domination the Chiana valley was reclaimed. Centuries of effort and money make this area today one of the most fertile in Italy. The inhabitants are mainly engaged in agriculture. In addition to cereals, fruit and vegetables are the excellent olive oil and wines a characteristic of this area. Increasingly popular is the medieval village of Cortona. In the narrow streets you can wander comfortably and enjoy the precious places and a cup of cappuccino. Above the city stands the Fortezza Medicea surrounded by historic walls. Here you get a great view of the city and the surrounding hills of the Chiana Valley. Situated on a hill is located the birthplace of Michelangelo Buonarroti, the Caprese Michelangelo. The ruined house shows a collection of photographs and documents depicting the life of Michelangelo.

A variety of cultural events, festivals and markets await the visitor throughout the year. Here you are immersed in the true life of Tuscany, experiencing the local traditions and enjoy the Tuscan cuisine. Badicorte is very well connected to the highway, to the railway network and also the airport of Florence is only an hour away. A variety of shops and all major facilities, such as post offices, banks, auto repair shop and pharmacy are all nearby. Nice bars and restaurants invite you to relax. The Mediterranean climate of Tuscany with its hot summers and mild winters promote natural well-being.
