There are facilities for outside dinning with table, chairs, parasol and a BBQ....... What Luxury.. The views from the vilette and garden are stunning and stretch down across the Valtiberina Valley, and up the hill to the picturesque medieval village of Citerna. Truly relaxing and romantic. The village of Fighille offers two bars,hairdresser,flower shop,boutique, Small supermarket,post office,and a pizzeria on the hill. Sansepolcro is about ten minutes away offering fresh local produce and local wine and is the home of the renaissance painter Piero della Francesca. His most famous painting of the resurrection can be seen here in the museum in the center of the town. There is also Anghiari only 10 minute drive away, it is a stunning medieval town which stands majesticly at the top of a hill and looks down on a perfectly straight Roman road (this has to be seen). This is where Leonardo di Vinci in the fifteenth century painted the famous “battle of Anghari” is an unmissable visit be it daytime or night just stunning. This area is steeped in history. The antique market is ideal for that little keep-sake. There are numerous walks in and around the countryside the most famous being St Francis of Assisi walk clearly sign posted. The river Sovara meanders its way around the lower fields is also a pleasant stroll. This particular part of Italy is so steeped in history it would be impossible to list all, so your visit is a must.More

About the neighborhood
Il Girasole, (The Sunflower ), is 8 km from the Terme di Fontecchi spa. It is just 30 minutes from Arezzo which has the main train-line up to the North 1 hour to Florence or south to Rome 1hr 20 min on a fast train, or all the way down to Naples and Pompei. It is 10 minutes from Anghiari and Sansepolcro. The weather is warm in the spring months and getting hot into the summer. It stays warm all through September and even have had many evenings eating outside in October.
How to get there
Flights from the UK Ryanair fly to Perugia 45 mins away, Rimini 1hour 15mins. Easyjet fly to Pisa and Rome Ciampino both 2 hours away. Car hire is available at all airports with most leading names. We have always found Europe car to be keenly priced. Directions by car from Perugia (San Egidio airport) 1. Just follow E45 dual carriageway in the Cesena direction. 2. Exit at San Guistino through Pistrino follow signs for Fighille, pass “Bar Bloom”.(on the right) 3. Turn immediate left,(signed Sasso), and left again at end of the road. ” Via della Fonte” is situated on the left of a right hand bend with safety mirror. Villa Noce, and Il Girasole is the last villa on the right.
