We love old walled towns, old buildings, castles and churches. My husband and I have known Anghiari for twenty years. As academics teaching at American universities, we get the chance to take long Summer breaks. We love the riches of art and architecture around us. We are also walkers; there are great opportunities for walks ranging from strolls along the banks of the Tiber to serious mountain trekking signposted by the Italian Alpine Club. There are weekly concerts arranged by the town every week in Summer, plus the acclaimed Anghiari Music Festival every year. Everyone remembers the views - dawn over the misty Tiber and then the brilliant colors of the fields and the wonderfully pure and unpolluted mountain air. Then as the sun sinks in the evening, the long shadows produce unforgettable images of rural Tuscany. The wild flowers in the Spring are amazing.

Juliet Ricketts purchased this apartment in 2012

This apartment is an elegant Renaissance apartment with soaring ceilings and vista windows looking out over the green Tiber Valley. The building is on the broadwalk on top of the medieval walls of the ancient city of Anghiari, designated by the Italian Tourist Board as one of the 100 prettiest villages in Italy.

When I first came to Anghiari 20 years ago it was not well known, but for me it was love at first sight and now this 800 year old medieval walled village of Anghiari is officially one of Italy’s prettiest villages. The local people are very friendly, especially to visiting Americans, since it was American GIs who liberated the city during WW2. Nestling in the loveliest hills of Tuscany, with Umbria easily accessible, we have found driving to all the other hill villages easy, but none are prettier. The six restaurants and three pizza shops are excellent, but we also love to cook easy Italian dishes ourselves using marvelous fresh vegetables from the market. For a village there are a surprising number of food shops, and two great bakeries, various antique shops, two pharmacies, and a local olive press which has been in business since 1422.

Built on a narrow pedestrians-only street in the medieval quarter, the apartment is in a six hundred year old building. The rooms have wonderful high ceilings that are cool in summer. All rooms are on ground floor level, so there are no steps. Our English speaking agent is always available to help and answer questions, and our housekeeper keeps every room immaculate. Guests continue to comment that staying in Anghiari is quiet and peaceful, far from traffic and modern day noise. For us, it is home from home, and going back to Anghiari every summer is delightful.

Beautiful city

  • 5 out of 5
We couldn't have been happier with the property. From the moment we arrived and called Guiseppe til the moment 5 days later when we sadly closed and locked our door we loved Anghiari. We ate some great meals and used Guiseppe's book as a guide and went to San Marino.
We also did a wine tasting at Monte Vibiano winery about 2 hrs away, a beautiful eco friendly winery where the people could not have been more accomodating and the wine an Olive oil were great. Stopped in Deruta on the way home and did some great shopping.

What really made this special was the care that Juliett showed from the moment I talked to her the first time. I just hope that we can go back one day.

Favorite in all of Italy!

  • 5 out of 5
We chose Tiber View based upon Juliet's thorough description of the features of this newly renovated apartment situated in one of the most beautiful and pristine hill towns we have ever seen. Tiber View's agent, Guiseppe, introduced us to Anghiari and Juliet's apartment. Guiseppe is very knowledgeable about the surrounding hill towns, and has authored a beautiful book about the area with suggested day trips, which we thoroughly enjoyed and followed. 

It was such a treat to find breakfast supplies waiting for us as well as a bottle of wine after our long journey from the states. Our party consisted of two sisters and their husbands.

The apartment is in a wonderful location, a short stroll to town, where there was a variety and quality of fresh produce, including strawberries, kiwis, and blood oranges, and rocket grown in Italian soil, groceries and the most wonderful croissants we have ever tasted. We enjoyed sitting around the kitchen table and planning a meal. Tiber View's kitchen with it's high end appliances and plenty of cookware, dinnerware, and glassware was a joy to cook in.

We spent our days walking through the ancient alleys, visiting churches and museums that house important relics and artifacts from the middle ages marveling at the culture, and traveling to other nearby hill towns, not to mention always finding the best pizza and a variety of wonderful restaurants featuring locally grown mushrooms and beef that would be hard to top anywhere.

At the end of the day, it was so wonderful to return to the spacious accommodations and relax in the lovely living room and recount our experiences of the day with wonderful background music. The views from the many windows are breathtaking and we were amazed at how soundproof the apartment is. Juliet has thought of every amenity one could hope for including guide books , brochures and very comfortable beds.

Of all the places throughout Italy we have stayed, Tiber View was most definitely our favorite, and we would not think twice about returning.
