  • Great Location for our Visit to Tuscany!

    "Our 10-day stay at the Paggi Villa in Civitella in Val di Chiana was wonderful. Civitella is a delightful village high on a hill about 30 minutes from Arezzo with the ruins of an ancient castle just across the street from the Villa. The village is within an hour's drive or train ride from many major sights around the region, but feels "away from it all". We made day trips to Arezzo, Florence, Monterosso, Sienna and the Chianti region, but always enjoyed coming "home" to Civitella where it was so peaceful and quiet after a busy day of sightseeing. The house was well-appointed and beautifully decorated, but welcoming and comfortable at the same time. There was an impressive library of history books, mostly in Italian but also some English language books. As reported by other visitors, the views from the living room and patio are spectacular! We enjoyed viewing the ever changing landscape regardless of the weather: rain, fog, or sun, it was always beautiful. As we were a large group of 6 to 8 people, we used all the sleeping spaces which consisted of 4 bedrooms upstairs and a study downstairs with a day bed. The beds were quite comfortable. With up to 8 people, we also appreciated having three full baths, the combined living room/dining room, the enclosed sun room with large table and comfortable seating, and the well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed cooking many of our own meals at the house, but also had excellent meals at both restaurants in the village. We were grateful for the small grocery store in the village where we purchased groceries and other items soon after we arrived. We often walked down the street to purchase fresh bread, cheese, sausage, eggs and milk for breakfast. If we needed a larger selection, a large, American style grocery store was about 10 or 15 minute drive from the house. An excellent pharmacy was also in a nearby town. Livia Paggi and her father, Professor Paggi, were both wonderful hosts. Prior to our arrival, Livia sent us extensive information about the house and the area. Professor Paggi met us upon our arrival and was a phone call away if we needed anything or had questions. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and we enjoyed talking to him. In short, our stay in Civitella was a wonderful vacation and we highly recommend the property to any who are looking for peaceful accommodations with easy access to major sightseeing destinations."
