“What a wonderful world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2011

A wonderful place, surrounded by the peace of the Tuscan countryside. You can go and see cities of art like Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Perugia or wonderful villages like Cortona, Città di Castello and the amazing small villages of the Val di Chiana, then come back in the afternoon, take off your clothes and refresh yourself ii the swimming pool! Here you could spend a few hours, immersed in water of the pool or the jacuzzi, watching the ruins of the gorgeous castel of Pierle, which is situated on the other side of the valley on a small hill, just listening to the sounds of nature.
All the apartments are very beautiful, well restored and furnished with taste.
The owners, Vanni and Diletta with their two children, are friendly and helpful.

The place is amazing and for those who are looking for relaxation is the best you can imagine, the house is sorrounded by secular trees and the valley is far enogh away from the noise of cars. The owners, a nice family with two children, are really the best we could wish, i can define them with two words: kindness without intrusiveness. The cultural destination are within easy day trip, whereas nature is at hand every day.

Situated in a gorgeous, oak-lined valley on the Southern border of Tuscany, this property will give you access to the deepest rural lifestyle enjoyed in Italy.
If you are looking for somewhere quiet, relaxed and in touch with nature you will certainly find it here. The properties have been recently renovated in the Tuscan style and are based on the original farm buildings, fully modernised.
At the time of the renovation a new pool was installed with a built-in jacuzzi all placed sympathetically into the landscape and surrounded by the natural woodland.
The proprietors, Vanni & Diletta, are delightful people offering personal and friendly service and who will help in any way to improve the quality of your holiday.
Within reach of Perugia, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Orvieto and even Florence and Assisi, you can readily go exploring Italy's history and splendour and be home in time for dinner.
The nearby village of Mercatale offers every facility you might require and appears to be populated by very friendly people. There is an abundance of excellent eating establishments within easy reach and the honest local food is exceptional.
