Under half an hour from Siena and Arezzo, a little over an hour from Florence, this very special house was built around 1820 to celebrate the safe return of a soldier from Russia, whose family had feared him lost in the Napoleonic wars. The stone built house, on a hilltop 450 m above sea level, has wonderful views across the surrounding hills of the Casentino. It has a tennis court, a boules pitch and very big swimming pool, 3 m deep at the deep end with a springboard, and the whole property is surrounded by its own parkland with carefully tended rare roses, shrubs and trees, as well as irrigated lawns and fruit trees.
The hospitable, aristocratic owners, who many of our customers will remember with fondness from Pitena, have combine discretion with charm, and will provide ample information for travellers and even cook for guests on occasion.
With access from the lawns on the east side of the house, just beyond its own shaded furnished patio, the apartment is reached through glazed doors and has a large comfortably furnished living room with a fireplace, a double sofa bed and full kitchen equipment cleverly concealed behind large wooden doors, a shower room and a double bedroom.
Around Poggio Landi
Ambra at 10 mins drive, has excellent shops and restaurants, and access to Siena and Arezzo is now much improved in this area, with the almost completed Superstrada dual carriageway linking with the A1 Autostrada. From nearby Bucine or Montevarchi you can take a train to the historic center of Florence injust 1/2 hour. Local roads are very pretty, and this is a good place to be based for the Piero della Francesca trail.
