Eremo is the Italian for hermitage, and this describes well the peace and seclusion of this beautifully restored 17thC country house. The villa is set in 50 acres of parkland, woods, olive groves and vineyards with an avenue of cypress trees, ideal for walking and exploring the hilly countryside. Discover the ancient dry stone walls and search for porcupine quills!
Villa l'Eremo is 2 miles from the walled hill town of Monte San Savino, which has its own exit from the A1 motorway, and is 13 miles from Arezzo, 25 miles from Siena, 50 miles from Florence and 120 miles from Rome. The main house consists of kitchen, sitting/dining, study, utility room, ground floor wash room and three double/twin bedrooms with en suite bath/shower rooms. An Annexe consists of a sitting room with kitchenette, twin bedroom and bathroom. This Annexe has its own front door, and may be part of the main house, or kept separate.
There is an 8m square sun terrace next to a covered 'limonaia' where one may eat al fresco, or under cover in bad weather. The 13m by 5m swimming pool is 100 m from the house. The pool is edged with travertine, and has a 5m shallow end for children.
