LE TERRINE - LARGE TUSCAN FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL AND TRANQUIL VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Monterchi

Sleeps 14 - 4 doubles + attic dormitory, 4 bathrooms. 5 minutes to Monterchi

Le Terrine is a traditional stone farmhouse set amongst fields of sunflowers, tobacco and sweet peppers. It looks south and west across a valley to the tiny village of Ripoli. Recently renovated with traditional materials (chestnut beams, terracotta floors etc), Le Terrine provides comfortable, spacious accommodation for 8 adults plus children.Outdoors there is a large tiled 'portico' to provide shade for eating, a large terrace lined with lavender and rosemary, a large garden planted with shrubs and fruit trees and a pool (12m x 6m) on a lower terrace with shaded seating as well as ample full sun.

Despite its tranquil location, Le Terrine is only a 3 minute car journey from the medieval hilltop town of Monterchi. Monterchi, famous for the 'Madonna de Parto' painting by Pierro della Francesca has a good supermarket, bars, restaurants, shops, banks and a local market. The grander cities of Florence, Arezzo, Sienna, Perugia and Rimini are all readily accessible in under 1 1/2 hour

Services: The house is cleaned and maintained by Fausto and Monica who live locally. They can also provide a taxi service to airports or for a night out.

Babysitting (English speaking) and meals catered at the house can also be arranged if booked in advance.

OUR FAVOURITE SPOT IN ITALY!

  • 5 out of 5
We are lucky enough to have stayed in this fabulous house a few times now - and we return because we have a guaranteeably wonderful holiday. The house itself is elegant, well appointed and flexible. The pool area is a great place to while away hot afternoons with a book. The location itself is magical; close enough to Monterchi and other villages/towns to provide holiday essentials, such as the incomparable Marcello's "supermarket", good restaurants and interesting places to visit, but tucked away in the hills enough to feel totally private. We don't think much can beat the view down the valley from the terrace at 6 o'clock with a nice bottle of red wine.

LOVELY PLACE TO STAY BUT NEED MORE CHAIRS

  • 5 out of 5
Overall a lovely and peaceful location with beautiful grounds. Pool was a good size and refreshing. Local shop was excellent and very friendly. Only suggestion is to provide more comfortable chairs for inside and outside.

PERFECT HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I (including 5 children) had a wonderful time in this beautiful house. The house felt so homelike and was clearly lovingly restored. The countryside was breathtaking. Perfect evenings by the pool in the balmy heat, with the soothing scent of lavender and rosemary wafting through the air. The views down the valley and across to the delightful village of Monterchi were stunning. We had day trips to Arezzo and Siena- both lovely. Easily accessible, good local shops/fresh produce including the local wine from friendly Marcello.

An absolutely perfect holiday. Thankyou so much.

PICTURE PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we drove along the track leading to the porperty we knew that this was going to be a wonderful place to stay for all of us; 6 adults and one small child. The pictures don't truly reflect the beautiful family home with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday.
Every last detail had been considered from the welcome pack to the bountiful supply of large beach towels and DVDs for siesta time with a 2 year old!.The property was spotlessly clean and all the rooms very spacious - it was a delight exploring each one when we arrived.
The pool was in constant use and the terrace a lovely cool retreat where all our meals were eaten. The fig tree and peach trees were laden with delicious fruit and in the evening just the sound of the crickets as we sat drinking a glass of wine and gazing across the hillside and down the valley.
The instructions given were perfect from how to get there down to the restaurants recommended and of course the wonderful Marcello and his supermarket where anything could be bought. The owners couldn't have been more helpful.

The house is situated in a perfect location for sightseeing places like Sienna, Pisa and Florence if you can tear yourself away from this little piece of heaven. One week wasn't nearly enough and we all can't wait to return. This was a holiday never to be forgotten for all the right reasons.

TUSCANY 2010

  • 5 out of 5
An excellent house in a very beautiful part of Tuscany. We had a week here June and enjoyed it hugely. The house is enormous, we only took up three of the four large bedrooms on the first floor. Every room was very well set out with everything we could need and comfy beds. The two large bathrooms were more than enough, especially with one downstairs and another upstairs. We did not use the second floor but it would be particularly good for kids rooms. The ground floor has a dining room which we did not use as we either ate outside or in the kitchen, which has a large dining table. We spent a lot of our time cooking up the local produce and this was the perfect place for it. There is also a lounge area just off the kitchen with plenty of seating. The building itslef is reatains all of its old world charm and has clearly been renovated with this in mind. It retails the feel of a Tuscan farmhouse which was especially good for those visiting from Australia.

The outside terrace was where we spent our evening relaxing, eating and drinking a bit too much of the supermarket owner, Marcello's, local wine. They also make some very tasty sausages if you get the chance to visit. Just down from the terrace is a huge pool that really made the days relaxing a treat. From everywhere outside the house there are excellent views of the surrounding country side.

There are planty of things to do in the surrounding area but maybe not as many as some of the more touristy parts of Tuscany. For us, this was a huge positive. Sansepolcro is the local town and has plenty of restaurants and shopping. There a few good restaurants within a short drive of Terrine and a small but good supermarket. Make sure you stop in for a drink in the small bar to meet the locals!

We can't wait to book another holiday here next year and would consider visiting at any time of the year. The house would suit people of all ages. We ranged from 31 to 71 and everyone enjoyed the stay at Terrine. We had no problems finding the property and the owners were extremely helpful making us feel welcome in their Italian holiday home.

RELAX AND UNWIND

  • 5 out of 5
Arriving at Le Terrine in the Tuscan hills was a true pleasure. Fabulous views in a quiet setting, a perfect place to relax and unwind. I will most certainly be back with my family. Unlike some holidays where you feel you need another to get over it, I came home and felt rejuvenated. Le Terrine has everything you could possibly want for either a quiet holiday for two or for you and your family. It was a privilege to be able to stay in such a wonderful home. We arrived sunday having driven 2hrs from Pisa, so the welcome pack, which was very generous, was a lovely touch. The pool was our first port of call, perfectly set looking out towards the Tuscan hills. The local mini mart where very friendly and sell local produce and meats, cheeses, vegetables and fruits, the wine large flagon of wine was a very good price and was very palatable. I would recommend pork and sausage kebab on the fresh meat counter, lovely on the bbq.

The house is just 5 mins drive from Monterchi, famous for Piero della Francisco's 'Madonna del Parto' or pregnant Madonna. The medieval town is steep and walled with fantastic views from the top of the surrounding hills, and despite its small size Monterchi also has a modern part with plenty of restaurants, shops and banks.

Monterchi has a tennis court which can be hired in the local bar (that serves superb ice-cream) and a children's play park.

10 minutes drive away is the Villa Caldese a Golf and Country Club that also offers spa treatments and horse-riding. Just over the road from this is a buffalo farm producing fresh mozzarella and ricotta daily.

If you want to venture further afield, Citta di Castell and Sansepolcro are 30 mins away, elegant Perugia is 45 minutes away and Florence, Sienna and the coast are about 90 minutes drive.
