Situated near the stunning medieval hill top town of Anghiari this romantic apartment forms part of a traditional stone farmhouse in quiet wooded countryside. With its own private terrace and access to large swimming pool in secluded gardens. The English owners are nearby to provide help and information.
The location provides easy access to all the major sights of Tuscany and Umbria plus a wealth of smaller places on the doorstep.
Tenuta Savorgnano is easily accessed from the road and is situated a short drive from the beautiful hill town of Anghiari amongst verdant hills of the Savora valley. The area has many fine restaurants and local markets. The position is perfect as it is in the heart of Tuscany and Umbria with easy access to Anghiari, Arezzo and the Casentino national park. Enjoy day trips to all the major historic cities including Florence, Siena, Assisi, Cortona and Perugia. The local area has many places to explore including those famous for connections with Piero della Francesca, St Francis and Michelangelo. Vineyards and Olive Oil mills also make great places to visit.
Anghiari’s fairytale towers and battlements make it one of Italy’s most beautiful small towns. It hosts a weekly market and has a good choice of café bars and restaurants for all tastes. Sitting outside Bar Garibaldi in the square is the perfect place for people watching and from there the stepped and winding streets of the old town draw you in. This area has long since been famous for fabric production and antique restoration and this influence is still visible in the fine linens of Busatti and many interesting antique shops. Anghiari also has many local services including banks, internet point, launderette, pharmacy, post office, shops etc. For all this Anghiari is relatively undiscovered so you can escape the crowds and tourist prices of more famous towns.
Arezzo is the provincial capital and home to a world famous monthly antiques fair at the start of each month. The historic centre was used in the filming of ‘Life is beautiful’ and is home to Piero della Francesca’s fresco cycle ‘The legend of the true cross’. Arezzo also has a relaxed atmosphere and a good selection of excellent restaurants.
The Casentino national park is an area of wooded hillsides and dramatic views. Visit the amazing castle that sits at the top of the pretty town of Poppi or the monasteries of Camaldoli and Chiusi della Verna where St Francis established his order of monks.
Like much of Italy this area is rich with food production: you can visit cheese makers, vineyards and olive oil mills and find their products in the local markets. Anghiari and Arezzo areas have fine wine producers and the chianti region is a short drive away and makes a lovely day out.
