We stayed here during the summer of 2013. Lucio welcomed us warmly in this ancient monastry which has been renovated without losing it's originality. We enjoyed the rest and peacefulness of the place and its beautiful surroundings and still think of it when tasting Lucio's tasty Novole olive oil.

Pros: Lucio is a wonderful host - extremely friendy and relaxed and always there, if there was a problem. The place itself is very old and renovated with plenty of love without loosing the character... More

I arrived in Novole at the end of July, after a never-ending winter in London. I drove to Arezzo, then I borrowed a bicycle from a friend. From there, I cycled all the way to Novole. It was a fantastic trip and Novole was the place where I wanted to arrive. Turning downhill into a gentle path, I had the... More

When we first saw the house, we were literally thrown into the paradise..it seemed to be simply incredible, amazing.. Embraced by nature and a truly exceptional view, this is the place of harmony and true beauty, surrounded by greenery and silence. The house is very,very romantic, full of memories of the past (it was like sleeping in the Middle Ages),... More

Novole is close to heaven. It was a 'Chiesa' in 15th century, and a peasants place in the 18th. And now, it's an amazing place to feel the countryside, the quietness, the silence. All with incredible views, surrounded by forest, nature. Birds, sun, and lovely sweet cat Emilia, and Pepito and Viola, friendly dogs. You can walk around, you can... More

Ours was a week-long "family" holiday. Three older adults and two younger adults. We were in the "convent" section of this agri-turismo and so had plenty of space to spread ourselves out. Four bedrooms, a lounge with enormous fireplace (lovely to sit by on the cooler, rainy evenings), two bathrooms, kitchen with gas stove & dishwasher and a dining area.... More

we spent a full week at Novole, two families with two young children and it was just marvelous. It was an Indian summer all week long, we made countryside walks to hidden rural trattorias, or spent hours reading in the hammock, now and then looking up to absorb the panoramic valley views. we stayed at the centuries old farmhouse, which...

Seldom we stayed in such a placid an tranquil place like the haunting Convento di Novole. Sited on the gorgeous hillsides of the Val di Chiana, we had our choice to savour the exquisite privateness in this unique and delightful spot or to visit its surrounding villages and towns like Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Orvieto, Firenze etc. with...

It's been wonderful days staying at Convento di Novole. Surrounded by the deep beauty of mountain nature. I could feel fresh air all the time and enjoy the silence. Beautiful sunrise and sunset, against the olive trees were amazing. The owner Lucio, and his family, friendly dogs and horse are remain in my heart. I'm looking forward to come back... More
