About the Property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Stay in a private, gated villa only 10 minutes from the antique capital of Italy, Arezzo. This 13th century property has been beautifully preserved and enjoy the tranquility of nature with views too spectacular to describe.

This stone house has been standing for hundreds of years and promises to deliver a relaxing vacation only locals have been able to enjoy, until now...Just driving up the narrow street up through woods and local olive gardens delivers you to the front gate of the property.

Upon viewing the all stone structure, you will feel the strength and security of the antique doors which enter this villa.

The multi level structure provides a unique floor plan which allows for privacy in each part of the house.

The lower level has a large, elegant living room complete with a sit-in fireplace. It also has a second sitting area with views of the property outdoor and yet another sitting area with a flat screen television and surround sound Bose system.


Two bedrooms are behind a hidden door, one with a complete bathroom and shower. Large floor to ceiling glass panels provide amazing views of the valley below. The middle or entry level provides foyer with hand painted coat wardrobe, large kitchen with indoor grill and casual dining table, and attached home office/wine room complete with authentic fresco, and powder room.

The top level of this gem has a master bedroom with authentic grand mirror at the foot of the bed and backed by an antique painting. Double doors open to more views of the valley below and attached bathroom with double sink, antique bathtub, and separate shower and toilet room.

As if the house was not enough, you will be able to enjoy walks through this large, multi level garden complete with olive trees, a private swimming pool with spectacular views, and a separate structure which has a changing room, outdoor shower, outdoor bathroom, and a private room with twin beds and it's own private bath and shower.

There is a gas Weber grill for those who enjoy cooking out on the grill.
