It has been restored as a family home, maintaining many of the original
features of the house including the chestnut beams and terracotta
floors, but has been fullly equipped to accommodate a large group. It is
a great base for exploring Arezzo (20 mins) , and the Pratomagno
mountain area with tiny mountain villages. The larger cities of Florence
(50 mins) and Siena (1.5 hours) are also within easy reach.
