About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
This elegant apartment is in one of the prettiest towns in Italy. Anghiari is a walled, medieval hill-top town overlooking the Tiber and the Sovara Valleys. Visitors have described entering this apartment as stepping onto a Renaissance stage. The high ceilings, the fireplace, the original frescoes, the large shuttered windows overlooking the 2000 year old Roman Road descending to the Tiber Valley transport the guest back in time. The lovingly restored, comfortably furnished apartment has every modern convenience, including WiFi. Anghiari, while stunningly beautiful and historically fascinating, is off the most-travelled tourist route, but is ideally situated for trips to by car or public transportation to Florence, Assissi, Cortona and the surrounding hill towns. Ideal for art lovers, enthusiastic walkers, and lovers of Italian cuisine and wine.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: I am a retired Canadian diplomat who fell in love with Anghiari sixteen years ago. I bought my apartment in 1997 and over the years have taken great pleasure in restoring it.
Why the Owner Chose Anghiari AR, Italy:
Being in the heart of this marvelous town, off the beaten tourist track but with Florence, Assissi, Cortona, Arezzo and the many surrounding hill towns so easily accessible, is a great joy. Art lovers can easily follow the Piero della Francesca trail, starting in the Civic Museum of Sansepolcro, less than a 15 minute drive away. Over the years so many guests have commented on the friendliness of the locals.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Strolling the cobbled lanes, slanted piazzas, arched passages and around the neighbourly villas, palazzos and tiny churches – some originally Etruscan temples – which have jostled for space on this charming hilltop for at least a millenia, you find within a refflective, warming perspective on life, a leisurely pace, a sense of easy well-being. Va bene, as the locals say. Goes well. The air is sweet with lavender and banks of flowers cascading from parapets, hanging pots and secret, sloping gardens. The heat is dry and comforting. In the the late afternoon the famously golden light gilds the faces of friends and the thousand year-old bricks of the surrounding wall. The hillside is brilliant with fields of sunflowers, glistening corn and silvery groves of olive. The Tiber meanders through the plain below and cyprus trees stand watch on the ridges. The local cuisine is to die for. When ordering fungi, the savory, crisp roasted delicacy that makes a masterpiece of mushrooms, be sure to order at least two plates or be prepared to fight with your friends. Make it up to them by taking them for lunch to the Osterria at Tavernelle. The fresh ravioli – silky and pliant – are the best in the world. On market day, pop a local, baby tomato in your mouth, but be prepared to stop in your tracks while taste buds adjust to the sheer vitality of their exploding, crimson flavours.
