Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Badia Tedalda - Arsicci, your home in Italy

7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms. Nice extra 2/3 sleeps bedroom on request.

The ancient farm owners house is located in a small Appennino village, named Arsicci, which is 850 meters above sea level. The house has a front garden at ground floor and, at lower floor, a second garden giving access to the private wooded park with swimming pool. Arsicci is located close to river Tevere springs. There are many marked panoramic paths of different difficulty level in the mountains surrounding the village. The GEA path, which follows the Appennini ridge, passes on the nearby crest. Arsicci is located close to the towns of Borgo Sansepolcro (the renaissance painter, Piero della Francesca, town), Monterchi and Anghiari.

On the Tirrenian side there are Assisi, Cortona, Gubbio, Perugia, Todi, Arezzo, Firenze and Siena; on the Adriatic Side Urbino, Ravenna, San Marino, Rimini the citadels of San Leo and Sassocorvaro. There are also a multitude of fascinating castles, shrines and hermitages such as La Verna and Camaldoli, sites of great spirituality in the early Middle Ages and Italian Renaissance.

About Paolo Sommariva

Our names are Anna and Paolo. The house was purchased by Paolo Family in 1933. We own the old Paolo family farmhouse since 1999. We have been travelling all over the world for working and knowledge reasons; while travelling we have collected interesting things which have been used to complete the nice traditional furniture of our home.

Paolo Sommariva purchased this villa in 1933

Why Paolo Sommariva chose Badia Tedalda

When we are in Arsicci we like walking and trekking on the surrounding beautiful and gentle mountains. Paolo loves Arsicci since he was born as well as his daughter Serena and his granddaughter Gemma. Anna and Paolo have always done what was necessary to keep this wonderful small tuscan village alive and in the best possible conditions.

We live in Milano and when we are not in our property Giuseppina, a kind lady living in Arsicci, takes good care of the hiouse and the park.

A beautiful setting and an ideal house for a relax

  • 5 out of 5
Located in the sleepy mountain village of Arsicci, this converted farmhouse is perfect for a large family gathering. With panoramic views across the surrounding mountain landscape dotted with farms and hamlets, the silence is interrupted only by the distant clang of cows bells, and the atmosphere is very "Sound of Music".

The house is comfortable, practical, and full of character. It's well equipped and has more or less everything you could need from pool towels to barbecue, although a microwave might be a useful addition. The pool and large gardens are very well maintained, and there are plenty of places to sit and read, or just kick back, do nothing, and take in the scenery.
There are one or two small villages nearby, and the closest supermarket is in Pieve Santo Stefano, a small town about 20 minutes drive away. If you want to do some exploring, Paolo, our host, gave us some very useful pointers on places of interest, and what to see in the locality. Sansepolcro, a 35 minute drive away, is the nearest large town. A stroll around it's old quarter is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
You would need to set aside a full day for trips further afield such as Florence or Siena.

One of the highlights of our two week stay was the meals prepared by Giuseppena, a local lady who looks after the house. Before your eyes, she will conjure up some wonderful local dishes for dinner - a great option if you want to take a break from cooking.

A beautiful setting and an ideal house for a relaxing family holiday.

Arte, cultura, relax nel centro d'Italia

Arte, cultura, relax nel centro d'Italia
  • 5 out of 5
Immerso in boschi di querce, faggi e carpini, con qualche pino a sud, nel parco, il casale di Arsicci meravigliosamente ristrutturato nel rispetto della tradizione locale, è un'oasi di pace e di tranquillità che induce al riposo e alla meditazione; rimembranza e quasi riproduzione degli eremi francescani che si possono visitare nei dintorni, magari raggiungendoli a piedi con lunghe ma deliziose passeggiate nel verde.
Crocevia di quattro regioni (Toscana, Romagna, Marche e Umbria), tra la Val Marecchia e la Val Tiberina, da qui si possono raggiungere in (relativamente) pochi minuti di automobile luoghi d'arte e di cultura unici al mondo. E non parlo (solo) di San Marino, Urbino, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, e altri notissimi luoghi compresi in tutti gli itinerari turistici, ma piuttosto di luoghi spesso dimenticati come San Sepolcro, Anghiari, Monterchi e Citerna o, più a sud. Spello, Montefalco e Bevagna.
Qui, in un ambiente che del '3-'400 ha mantenuto fascino e bellezza, si possono incontrare il grande Piero della Francesca, Iacopo della Quercia, Tino di Camaino, affreschi di Benozzo Gozzoli e del Perugino, una Madonna con bambino (terracotta policroma) di Donatello trentenne, la "Deposizione" di Rosso Fiorentino, e molte altre testimonianze del genio italico.
Alimento culturale per lo spirito e per la mente, quindi, di vera eccellenza.
E il ritorno a "casa Arsicci" sarà reso ancor più piacevole dall'accoglienza principesca che vi riserveranno la casa con le sue stanze ampie e luminose (tutte con bagno privato), il salotto e la cucina ricchi di antiche risonanze, il parco e la piscina, insieme alla dolce cordialità di Paolo e Anna.
E che dire della cucina di Giuseppina (disponibile su richiesta - fortemente consigliata - a preparare pranzi e cene)? "Alimento culturale per il corpo". Non trovo altra definizione.
Ora, provate a tracciare una linea ideale tra Bolzano a Napoli: al centro troverete Arsicci!
Vero "umbilicus Italiae", qui lingua, arte, natura e perché no? enogastronomia si incontrano in un equilibrio magistrale, che l'accoglienza di Paolo e Anna e la cucina di Giuseppina interpretano perfettamente e felicemente.
Insomma: un paradiso terrestre!

Arsicci

  • 5 out of 5
A perfect holiday destination. Beautiful, peaceful location. The house is gorgeous and very well kept. The local housekeeper looks after you amazingly and will happily cook delicious meals when requested. There is also excellent correspondence with the owner. Facilities brilliant with lovely pool, table tennis and billiards - perfect for families. We are returning for the 4th year in a row.

Dreamfull holidays

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Arsicci. We discovered Toscany outside the usual touristic roads, but it was worth. And the house was so nice, that it was difficult to hit the road and visit some of the wonders of Toscany like Assisi. We particularly appreciated the view on the mountains from the swimming pool, the pool table (for our evenings) and the big park.

But above all what we really liked was Paolo's hospitality and Josepina's kindness.

Everything was perfect. We really recommend this property.

MAGNIFIQUE MAISON A RECOMMANDER !

  • 5 out of 5
Avons passé une très belle semaine dans ce lieu magnifique.
Le maison est de très bon confort, spacieuse (850 m² !), décorée avec soin.
La taille de la maison permet de garder une certaine indépendance.
La prestation de ménage journalière est effectuée par une personne très sympathique du village. Elle se propose aussi de préparer les repas du groupe.
Le village est très calme, au milieu de nulle part.
Une voiture est indispensable pour le séjour.
La decription faite sur le site est tout à fait fidèle à la réalité.
L'accueil du propriétaire a été très chaleureux.
Une adresse à recommander à tous ceux qui souhaitent découvrir la Toscane en bénéficiant d'un hébergement de grande qualité.
