About Victoria

We are a family of three who own this wonderful apartment and consider ourselves lucky to have found this wonderful area and village. We live in the northeastern part of the United States and love Italy. We also love to share our find. We have had no problems renting on the internet and don't expect this to change. Never had a complaint or concern. our guests...

Victoria purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Victoria chose Arezzo Province

We fell in love with this area but most importantly this village. It is not a place filled with Americans, it is truly Tuscan. Wonderful people who live in the village, near many other desirable places to go. The olive oil in this region is considered the best in the world. We consider it home.

What makes this apartment unique

We love to explore. Arezzo is within thirty minutes and the first Sunday of the month the town turns into an antique expo. We also have an antique expo in our town. A truly Tuscan experience where you can practice your Italian, but where there are English speaking people as well. Near many wonderful hill towns where one would want to explore. Swimming is available in the river running through this beautiful little village. A walk from the flat....a wonderful converted mill.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have traveled with and without kids all over Europe. This place is not only cozy and near so many great cities, but I could live here and never leave the village. A great place to bring kids. A wonderful, safe, authentic Tuscan experience. I am coming back for sure.

We traveled throughout Italy staying in a combination of hotels and rental properties. This place was our favorite and the highlight of our trip. Planning a re-visit as soon as we can. A true gem. Many thanks for the memories.

Nice retreat for exploring Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

A very nice and spacy appartment in the center of the charming village Loro Ciuffenna. The village is well located to explore Tuscany and perfect day trip distance from Sienna, Florence, Arezzo, Cortona etc. Car is a must, parking is no problem. The resturant Torrre next door next to the bell tower is well worth a visit!

Perfect place to stay in Tuscany!! We have stayed here 3 times and will come back again

  • 5 of 5

Close proximity to the surrounding Tuscan cities, this beautiful apartment is a perfect place to relax after a day of shopping, eating and taking in all the beauty that is Tuscany!

My wife and I have stayed here 2 times and most recently brought another couple, they enjoyed it as much as we did and will return. Great kitchen, bedrooms and patio. We have cooked up many an Italian feast in this kitchen...feels like home away from home! Perfect for a get-a-way with your spouse or a group of 3 couples. High recommend this place!

Gorgeous Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stumbled upon this gem nestled in the hills of Tuscany and were beyond happy to make it our home for a week. Our intention was to make it our home base while we traveled around the region but we found ourselves spending more time in Loro Ciuffenna as the town is utterly charming and the apartment is extremely tranquil and comfortable. A perfect spot for a romantic getaway, but also very easy to accommodate a family. The host is very accessible and quick to respond. One year later, I am wishing I was back! Bonus for shoppers, Prada Outlet is nearby.

Fantastic Apartment, Wonderful location, Charming Owner

  • 5 of 5

The location is just as described, Loro Ciuffenna appears around a bend and over a bridge, close to any place in Tuscany, immerse yourself in the village for at least a day during your stay, greet each morning to the gradual wakening of a village, a few steps from your door, get fresh milk and breakfast pastries.....the apartment is even better than shown in the pictures, the bedrooms are very spacious and well appointed, the kitchen is huge, every room has natural light, the patio is a bonus for an European 2nd floor apartment, very large, the bathroom has a very nice tub/shower combination, plenty of hot water and good water pressure, the washer was very handy,..... wonderful, friendly neighbors and the owner is very helpful in making the arrangements......charming walks through town, families with young children, grandparents all gathering in the town center for the evening exchange of days adventures, very good local restaurants......everyone in my family group agreed the apartment was a great find, making our vacation that much more enjoyable......thanks for the pleasure of staying in your home! Hope to return soon. CIAO

Our third time....

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful village and an absolutely beautiful place. Fully equipped and access to a pool in an old converted mill in village. The size is quite generous and the fireplace came in handy the last time we were in Loro. It is so close to many wonderful Tuscan cities. One can stay a month and do day trips for an adventure to a new village. We went to the Terme Baths in Rapolino near Arezzo, wonderfully relaxing!! We came twice with children, but the last time we came alone!! Recommended for anyone, very family friendly, but still quite romantic!!!
