Guestbook comments from the owner
What can I say? This was my second visit with my mom & friends and it just gets better with each visit. The house is fantastic with amazing views from practically every room. What is really unique aside from the blend of rustic charm & modern conveniences is that the house provides all kinds of sanctuary for anyone who wishes some private space to soak in this magical part of Tuscany. Set in the countryside, the house is central to so many charming places to visit either for a day, morning or afternoon. One should take care that they don't get charmed to death! Perhaps the best part is the location is off the beaten path, so it is easier to experience the region without butting heads with a lot of tourists. The rolling terrain offers more variety of color and contrasts compared to the Chianti region further west. The charm of Sansepolcro and the people of the region allows the visitor to acclinmate so easily. The province of arezzo is genuine! Wonder, charm & adventure are within a stones throw in all directions. I cannot say enough about how much I love this place and would wholeheartedly encourage a stay there!
