The exclusive and sun drenched pool, the large beautiful gardens with an abundance of fruiting trees and herbs, all combine to make unforgettable holiday memories. Situated in the Casentino and 50 km east of Florence.

Unravel unique experiences made around Casa Giardino and enjoy the generousity of the local people and their fine food and local wines. Spalanni is a collection of ancient stone cottages nestling above the larger villages of Strada in Casentino and Castel San Niccolo. There was once a 13th century convent and now the lovely little church of Santa Maria is open during the summer. The small local shop in Prato di Strada is just 3 minutes down the road but there is a wider range of shops in Strada only 5 minutes away in the car, including 3 banks with ATM and a Post Office. There is a wonderful bakery and delicatessen, an award winning butcher's shop and there are other fresh produce shops, bars and restaurants. Our house is well placed to explore the local area and Poppi and Bibbiena are 15 and 20 minutes away. Arezzo is the provincial capital and is reached in less than an hour by car. Day visits to Florence, Chianti, Sienna, Cortona and even Rome can be reached by train from Arezzo.More

Beautifull house, (very well equipped) lovely pool. Nice views over the mountains. Very relaxing, sitting on the balcony or by the pool, sipping wine.
