About The Owner

The house has been in my husband's family since the 50s and we love the proximity to the town and the great features of our apartment rental.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1950

Why The Owner chose Sansepolcro

The owner was born in this house and has always lived here.

What makes this apartment unique

Property is in an ideal position as you can walk to the centre with shops, restaurants in 2 minutes and there is plenty of parking just outside. This is a unique benefit not easily found elsewhere. If you are coming for a long stay an English speaking person on hand to help with any problems (e.g. health etc) can be a real plus point.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had visited Italy before, but always the major cities. Staying in Sansepolcro with Louise and Franco was a memorable experience -- our best trip to Italy! From the moment my husband and I arrived to find a bottle of wine, pastries and supplies for breakfast waiting for us, we knew we had made the right choice. Louise and Franco were welcoming and gracious hosts, and their recommendations for restaurants, shops and nearby places to visit were a perfect match for us. The location itself is perfect -- right outside the walls of charming, medieval Sansepolcro and within easy driving distance of not-to-be-missed sites in Tuscany and Umbria. Our friends could not believe the apartment pictures that we posted on Facebook -- they were amazed by (and quite jealous of!) our spacious and comfortable accommodations. Our stay was definitely not long enough -- we'll be back! Grazie mille!

Great place to stay for a visit to Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 delightful weeks in Sansepolcro. The apartment was just what we wanted and the location was great! It is located just outside the old city walls, so easy to walk to great bars, restaurants and shops. We had a rental car (an automatic rented at the Florence airport), so we enjoyed many days driving around Tuscany to visit wonderful towns and wineries. Lousie and Franco were helpful and friendly and the fact that they spoke English was a real bonus. The September weather was perfect and there were very few American tourists there, which we loved. We highly recommend that you consider rentlng this apartment.

Sansepolcro: a special place in Tuscany, near the Umbrian border

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 2 week stay in Sansepolcro, near Arezzo in Toscana. The apartment was ideal for a couple but it was also very spacious and so would comfortably accommodate more. We loved the garden, too, where we enjoyed many of our meals in the pleasant weather. May is a perfect time to visit Italy as the weather is usually warm but not too hot.

Our hosts Louise and Franco were perfect hosts and were helpful in all respects. As we were without a car, Franco very kindly drove us into Arezzo for a day visit and to the bus stop when we were leaving. The local bus was reliable for visits to some small towns, notably a magnificent hill town called Anghiari which was a five minute bus ride from Sansepolcro. There is also a local train line that is quite close to the apartment which travels to Perugia(the capital of Umbria), with a few stops in between.

Sansepolcro is a friendly town, with quite a few restaurants and bars. There are street markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays and there are still some alimentari in the Centro Storico which offer an authentic Italian shopping experience. If you want more variety in your shopping, there are three supermarkets within walking distance.

Oh yes, and when you've had enough of "la dolce vita", there is an excellent museum which includes works by the artist Piero della Francesca,who was born in Sansepolcro.

We highly recommend this apartment for a relaxing Italian holiday.

The Perfect Place to Explore Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Louise and Franco's very spacious apartment on the first floor of their on home was just the place my wife and I were looking for on our first trip to Italy since our focus was on renting a car and exploring the countryside and ancient Tuscan villages. Sansepolcro's location is ideal for that, as it sits just and hour's drive from more sites than you could visit in a year, much less the five wonderful days in April that we had. The apartment is ideally situated to allow you to comfortably walk anywhere in the village of Sansepolcro itself, which is full of shops, restaurants and historic sites that are well worth the time to investigate. Make sure you have plenty of room on your camera card! The well equipped kitchen is a big plus if you're inclined to visit the local supermarket and put together a home cooked meal. If possible plan your trip to coincide with one of the local fairs that take place in Sansepolcro as they are not to be missed! Louise and Franco were very helpful and accommodating with anything and everything we needed during our stay. For us their perfect English was a plus as our "Pimsler Italian" Cd's did not get us very far! The best thing about our trip was there's lots of Tuscany left to see, so if we ever get the chance to go back we know exactly where we'll be staying!!

Surprise Package Just Outside Old Town Walls

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable spacious apartment a few minutes walk to centre of beautiful Sansepolcro. We had lunch out on garden patio, quiet and secluded. Ideal for 2, although pull out couch was just Ok for adult daughter. Bit of a squeeze with huge dining table. Louise was a great host, and was able to help with printing some documents. We would certainly stay there again.

A garden made for Italian alfresco dining!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful two weeks we had in this garden apartment in Sansepolcro. Louise and Franco were warm and welcoming making us feel at home the minute we walked in the door. Communication was always excellent which made this part of our holiday the easiest to organise. Louise would always reply to emails very promptly and was able to provide excellent advice. The apartment was well equipped and very spacious with lots of comfortable spots to sit and read a book. We shopped locally and ate almost all our home cooked meals in the garden. What a magic spot. My husband particularly liked the meat slicer. We could cut our own prosciutto! We also had an excellent selection of local restaurants to try, all in easy walking distance in the old part of town, some quite simple and some more sophisticated. We loved them all and had trouble picking our favourite, they each provided something unique, but probably they were Guidis and Al Coccio. At first we thought we would catch buses and trains to visit small towns nearby but we quickly realised that having a car was the best way to do it in the short time we had. There is so much to see and do in the local area. A wonderful apartment, wonderful hosts and a great destination to see the real Italy without the tourist crowds.
