Casa Allioni

Pieve a Presciano, close to Arezzo

A Tuscan Villa for 6 with amazing views

  • Sleeps 6
  • 3 Bedrooms
  • Private Pool
  • Wifi

Casa Allioni is a typical Tuscan villa for 6 close to a village, with long ranging spectacular views, particularly from the swimming pool. Shaded pergolas help outdoor living and dining. Coming up the drive past olive groves and grapevines to Casa Allioni, you immediately understand the delight its owner has in living here. And you can see the delight with which the house was created. Geraniums and flowering vines compliment the local stone and brick facade of this 17th cent. farmhouse and graceful arches and a generous loggia only hint at the many spaces that will offer spacious retreat or a place to gather. With respect to its position overlooking the Arno River Valley, seating has unerringly been placed just where you would want to rest while gazing out towards the gentle layers of the Chianti Mountains. Yet there are good reasons for going inside.

Accommodation

Entrance on the upper floor is past a bread oven and into a spacious kitchen, whose fireplace has seen centuries of Tuscan cooking and whose terracotta floors and beamed ceilings adjust quite well to the modern appliances of a gourmet-class kitchen with an antique table for 14. The kitchen sits between a corridor leading to a bathroom and a double bedroom and an open staircase leading down to the living room, where high ceilings and three french doors give it light and spaciousness. Like all rooms of the house, the living room has a tasteful a mix of art and antique and modern furnishings, and comfortable sofas, a corner fireplace and sound and video equipment make it a natural place to enjoy each other's company. On this floor there are a studio, a bedroom with a small double bed, a shower room and the master bedroom, which has a door leading out to table and chairs on the wide vine-covered terracotta walkway that fronts the house.

This walkway wraps around the house and forms a wide patio outside the living room doors and the entrance to the wine cellar, where excellent Allioni wine is aging in oak barrels. From here stairs lead first up to the furnished loggia, which is effectively an outdoor summer dining room, and then further up to the swimming pool set within a sculpture garden. Equipped with lounge chairs on a wide flagstone deck and table and chairs under the stone pool house nearby, the pool area is the ideal place to relax and take in the view below, as well as a glass of wine and the sunset.

The owner may be in residence in the studio apartment above the garage when guests visit, but as she is an excellent resource, this could well be an advantage in learning about the area and arranging for a catered dinner or cooking lesson. She has her own garden area and guests have exclusive use of the swimming pool.

Nice little touches:

  • This is a very liveable villa and the views from the pool are spectacular
  • Having the village close by is a delight

Good to know

  • The stairs from the kitchen to the living room have wide spaced banisters - children under 5 should not stay here, unless they are under year old.

Local area

The American owners who restored this house carefully created areas that welcome quiet thought or joyous get-togethers, and the layout of the house makes it perfect for two couples or a multi-generational family. Though the greenery surrounding the house gives it a buffered sense of privacy from the modern world, the house is actually within pleasant walking distance to the restaurant, bar and small shops in the village below. And its excellent access to major motorways and delightful country roads place the ancient cities of Siena, Arezzo and Florence within easy reach.
