Independent Country House in Tuscany 8/14 people, Luxury Poll, WI.FI, A.C.
This antique lovely holiday villa, with private pool is situated in Tuscany , in the hills above Anghiari , surrounded by softly rolling hills, cultivated fields, and woodlands that bear witness to the strongly agrarian character of Italy through the centuries - a past which has marked the land as clearly as it has shaped the people who continue to work it.
Located twenty minutes drive east of Arezzo, Cortona, the property is in easy reach of towns rich in art and history, including Sansepolcro (birthplace of Piero della Francesca and proud keeper of some of his most famous paintings), Anghiari, Monterchi, Citerna, Città di Castello, and Caprese Michelangelo. Slightly farther afield, but still within day-trip range are Florence, Assisi, Gubbio, Cortona, and a chain of Sanctuaries built by Saint Francis and his followers, who sought out wild places of great natural beauty in which to meditate and give thanks.
Off the beaten track of the mass tourist market, this property, is nevertheless, at the center of Renaissance Tuscany, offering easy access to the hill towns, museums, craftsmen, restaurants, wine and specialty food shops that make this part of Italy so famous. Its particular appeal is to offer a tranquil country setting, yet with many of the conveniences offered by a well-run country hotel, including short distance from a country road, and a range of possible services and facilities, such as nearby tennis courts, swimming lessons, horseback riding, mountain biking, guided museum and artisan tours. On the grounds are a playground for children and a bocce court.
Excellent children's facilities: On request pram, travel cots, baby baths with head rest, high chairs, potties, sterilising units, food processor, baby listeners and play pens can be provided. Baby sitting available (please book at least 48 hours in advance) Certified horse riding centre specialised in children's lessons nearby.
The house combines the traditional materials of Tuscan farm architecture - huge, chestnut beams, terracotta floors, stone and painted plaster walls—with all the modern conveniences. The spacious rooms have been furnished with classic Tuscan furniture, made from chestnut and wrought iron, including family pieces that recall an earlier era of Italian country life. In order to offer choice in price and size of accommodations, Villa Ferraguzzo has been divided into three separate apartments for groups ranging from 8-14 people, with prices adjusted accordingly.
It is handicapped accessible. The Lido and Luca who own the house live in the neighbouring village and will be around to make sure you have everything you need.

A unique territory under an environmental and landscape profile, a sequence of breath taking views which are immediately and universally recognized.In Valtiberina, just the same as in other regions of Italy, between the 10th and 12th centuries, was the typically medieval phenomenom of “incastellamento”, that is the construction of castles (from Latin castellum or castrum). Economic development, the consequent rise in population but also the unstable situation which arose from the progressive decline of the Carolingian empire favoured the transformation of scattered villages from previous centuries into a new form of settlement, more compact and organized like fortified villages which w

OUR FANTASTIC SUMMER HOLIDAY 2011
Last autumn my wife and I started talking about the summer holiday 2011. We started looking for a house to rent in Tuscany and she found Villa Ferraguzzo by “accident”. This villa looked too good to be true but she submitted a price request immediately. This villa was just what we had in mind as the whole family, ourselves, our two sons and their families, wanted to go. Three flats with seven bedrooms meant that we also could have visitors.
Arriving in Rome in the afternoon and heading north towards Villa Ferraguzzo in the dark was a new experience as the road signs and the GPS didn’t marry up as expected. At 2 o’clock in the morning we arrived Villa Ferraguzzo. Luca and his dad Lido were waiting for us and gave us a warm welcome.
Waking up the next day was nothing else but fantastic! The villa, the garden, the pool, the surrounding areas, everything was beyond our expectations. The photos on their website do not serve the villa right! It took us a couple of days to wind down and to understand that we were as close to heaven as we possibly could be still being alive. It is a quiet place and the only noise that could be heard was a few cars on the road close by and some tractors out on the field. We heard the birds singing and the wind blowing gently in the trees. Our grandchildren had a fantastic time, mainly in the pool, enjoying every second of our two weeks stay.
If you are looking for a place to recharge your batteries, Villa Ferraguzzo can be recommended!
Villa Ferraguzzo even has its own restaurant in the adjacent building. This restaurant is open on request and they served very good typical Italian food.
Luca and his dad Lido doesn’t know the word no. They are doing whatever possible to make the holiday as comfortable as possible. Whatever your request is, they fix it. They were around every day, either to make sure that the stay was as perfect as possible or to cut the lawn, clean the pool or any other maintenance required.
Luca organize whatever you want to do, either a trip to see all the fantastic towns in the surrounding areas, a course to learn how to make Italian pizza or anything else such as a visit to a wine producer in Chianti. Luca did also organize a taxi to Arezzo and the train for the departure of our friends.
Thank you Luca and Lido, you brought our holiday experience to a whole new level! We will be back without a shadow of a doubt!
We stayed 12 days at Ferraguzzo and had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect! The villa is well maintained. The rooms are all beautifully appointed and very spacious. The pool and outside grounds were spotless. Luca and Lido were wonderful hosts and were very helpful with each and every request.
Our son is in a wheelchair and the villa is quite accessible! We had 11 people in our group and Ferraguzzo has plenty of space for everyone!! I would recommend this beautiful villa to everyone! We look forward to a return visit!! Grazie Luca e Lido!!!
Great second stay – thank you!
We’ve had a lovely relaxing time, Great views and loads of clean fresh air. Breakfast ‘al fresco’ was a real treat. Beautiful rooms and grounds, great hospitality. Thank you
