I experienced a very unique stay at CDV in June of this year. it was so different to the normal type of resort holiday which most of us would be accustomed to. The house is an amazing structure consisting of 3 floors literally nestled on side of a mountain. The views are breathtaking from all angles. Decor and modern touch to a very old building is most impressive and a tribute to the skill and talent of the owners.
It's a short drive to the beautiful town of Sansepulcro which has great shops and restaurants. The use of a car will enable you to visit many other lovely towns of interest.
If you are looking for peace tranquility and beautiful scenery look no further than CDV The hospitality of staff was excellent. We will be back!!
We stayed as a couple in May and availed of one of a number of recently refurbished apartments in the building. These apartments are totally self-contained, spacious with everything that one could want for a vacation. The building itself was once a lookout tower, subsequently converted to a Bishops palace (with a reputed underground passage to the local church – but we didn’t find it) and is now an outstanding property overlooking the surrounding valleys.
Located in the hills about 10Km from Sansepolcro, it is centrally located for visiting the surrounding destinations, Anghairi, Arezzo, Assisi, Florence, Siena, San Morino and the Tuscan wine regions.
There are many walking trails in the area and the property is beside the path on the way to Assisi 84Kms away.
Overall, a beautiful place to spend some time getting away from it all.
We stayed in Casa Del Vescovo in late July. Temperatures at the time were high but thankfully our mountain retreat was several degrees lower. Our accommodation at CDV was excellent- the whole building had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. The structure consisting of 3 floors is hundreds of years old and situated in the old mountain village of Montagna, 7km up the mountain from the walled medieval town of Sansepolcro.
The beautiful scenery, mountain views, sun, old village feel, peace and quiet, luxury accommodation, mountain walks and proximity to Sansepolcro made our stay most enjoyable and restful.
We had day trips to Florence, Arrezo and Rimini but our best days were definitely spent in and around CDC, Montagna and Sansepolcro.
The staff were very friendly and always available to give advice and help.
A car is needed when staying at this location if day trips to nearby attractions are planned.
We holidayed in Casa Del Vescovo in June. Just a few minutes drive from Sansepolcro, this guesthouse is nestled in peaceful and tranquil Montagna with stunning views down into the valley.
The accommodation was beautiful, clean, tidy, comfortable and spacious. The staff were excellent, very helpful and professional.
The location, nature and wildlife was stunning, with lovely walks on the doorstep. There were a few very good restaurants in Montagna just a minutes walk from the house. The local town Sansepolcro has a great variety of shops and restaurants.
We took day trips to Arezzo, Siena and the beach at Rimini, all within an easy driving distance.
Casa Del Vescovo would make a great holiday location at any time of year. I would like to return to appreciate this special place again.
Stayed in CDV for one week in June, breathtaking views, beautiful bedrooms, definitely worth the drive up the mountain! It was perfectly located to explore Tuscany. We travelled from here to Florence, Sienna etc for day trips and also organised a wine tasting trip to Barone Ricasoli which was amazing. A few very nice restaurants within walking distance which was great if we got back late from touring. Other evenings we took a five minute drive to the local town of Sansepolcro which is thronged with beautiful shops and restaurants. Linen was constantly changed, fresh towels in the bathroom, extremely clean with a beautiful private terrace on the top floor for sun worshippers. Staff were excellent and went out of their way to help make our holiday beyond enjoyable. The service was excellent at CDV, very high end and ridiculously under priced for what your getting. Will definitely be back to this little bit of heaven in the Tuscan mountains!
