About the Property
Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)
Our apartment, La Casa Cantabria, was built 800 yeas ago on the same street where St.Thomas of Canterbury is said to have stayed before going back to England to his martyrdom. As you climb the short marble staircase from the street, you go back in history. From the sitting room you see almost exactly the same view that artist Piero della Francesco painted in his great masterpieces, many of which are on display in the local towns of Sansepolcro, Monterchi and Arezzo. While the building is medieval, the two bathrooms and the kitchen are of course new.
The sitting/dining room, with sofa bed, is very comfortably furnished and decorated with a fine Vincenzo Calli painting. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, one with two singles which can be made up as one, and a third with a single bed. The upstairs bathroom boasts a hot towel rail which has been commented upon with pleasure by many guests. Furnished to a high standard.
In summer, a cooling up-draft from the valley blows through the apartment, and, combined with the overhead fans in each of the bedrooms, ensures a comfortable night's sleep. In winter, radiators keep the apartment snugly warm within its thick ancient walls.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We love old buildings, old towns, castles and churches. We like fresh Tuscan food and wine, and love the restaurants in Anghiari. We, my twin sister and I, have known Anghiari for 15 years, and when we had the opportunity to buy this apartment we took it sight-unseen, and have never regretted it. Because my husband is a university professor, we get the chance to take long academic breaks and we focus on Italian film, and the riches of art and sculpture around us. We also are walkers and there are great possibilities for walks ranging from strolls along the Tiber banks to some serious high hill trekking. Lastly, Anghiari is a great place to get on with any book that needs writing because of its peacefulness.
Why the Owner Chose Anghiari AR, Italy:
The 800 year old medieval walled town of Anghiari is in the heart of Tuscany,a world heritage site and one of Europe's most colorful countrysides. both in towns and villages,the Italians you will meet are most friendly to Americans. Tuscany is the cradle of the Renaissance, so we love the art galleries, medieval towns and wonderful music and arts festivals. Italian food and Tuscan cuisine is superb. Walking, horse riding and in Winter, skiing are great.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love Anghiari for many reasons: the sense it gives us of living in the medieval world, with narrow streets and wonderful old buildings; the warmth of the Italians who really welcome visitors; the easy driving distance of wonderful cities like Sienna, Florence, Perugia and countless small towns and villages set in a mountain landscape; the fresh mountain air while walking or riding or biking....and of course the food and wine.
