The house is fully equipped for elegant family living, including wi-fi, and can accommodate a maximum of eight adults. Many of the furnishings are sturdy 19th-century antiques, and books for all tastes abound. The kitchen is equipped with new appliances, including a dishwasher and washing machine.
Civitella has a lively local life, with two restaurants, hairdressers, a mom and pop grocery store with fresh bread every morning, and antiques shop. Swimming pools, spas, tennis courts and horse back riding are all available nearby.
“Villa Chiana” is an ideal base to experience the essence of Italy, protected from tourist crowds, yet easily accessible to all of the treasures of Tuscany being only a twenty minute drive to Arezzo, forty minutes to Siena, and an hour to Florence. Within a 35 minute drive you can reach Montepulciano, Cortona and wonderful places like the outdoor thermal baths of Rapolano which date to Roman times to discount outlets for Italian fashion.
