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.

A peaceful and comfortable holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Planning this trip was very straightforward, the house owners are prompt and responsive and they seem concerned to ensure that we had a good stay; booking and paying was a straightforward process. We received a welcome booklet for the property before our holiday, this was usseful in planning activities for the holiday. We were sent the key before we left and very clear instructions enabling us to find the property effortlessly, (something that we are usually hopeless at).
We arrived at the property at about 3.30 on a glorious August afternoon. We had seen the pictures but they did not prepare us for what a lovely house this is. It really felt idyllic, sensitivity planted with lavender, figs and peaches. The house has many lovely rooms, well furnished with comfortable and pleasing furniture. And there is loads of room,there were only 4 of us so we never went up to the top floor. The house was well stocked with games and activities, including a full sized table tennis table. Everyone was very pleased with their rooms. The kitchen worked well, but was the only place that we could find a socket to charge our phones and laptops so those sockets were busy. There was good wifi coverage. There are many books, many DVDS, games and 2 bikes. The swimming pool is large and in a beautiful location, a really tranquil place to relax
I strongly recommend this farmhouse and I hope at some point in the future to go back again, with a few more people.

A beautiful well farmhouse in a wonderful location

  • 5 out of 5
This is the perfect venue for a family, extended family or family plus friends holiday! The farmhouse has a grand, yet comfortable feel. There is plenty of room for guests either to come together in the comfortable sitting room, large dining room, or scenic terrace, or to spread out and have quiet time - depending on your preferences!
The gardens a wonderful, planted with fruit trees, with the most beautiful views across the country. The swimming pool is ideal for energetic games, swimming lengths or wallowing in quietly to cool down. There is also a table tennis table - perfect for a tournament between guests. Great fun!
The property is extremely well equipped for all needs. You don't have the frustration of having one knife, fork and plate for each guest - there is plenty for everyone! Just like being at home!
The whole ambiance is tranquil and you can be as relaxed or active as you want to be.
The property is well positioned to have day trips to the main cities and sites in Tuscany and parts of Umbria. We have visited Florence, pizza and Perugia on day trips as well as more local towns and sites.
I would recommend this property to anyone - and we fully intend to revisit! Thank you for a most wonderful holiday.

Fantastic Tuscan Villa with amazing views

  • 5 out of 5
The Farmhouse has been lovingly refurbished and has everything you need for a relaxing family holiday. The layout is perfect with many secluded spots to relax; whether you want the sunshine or the shade, all are very private and the views are wonderful. We could have spent all the time in the villa but there is so much to do on the doorstep, fantastic local restaurants and walks, plus we visited Sienna and Assisi. Great attention to detail, the owners are more than happy to help with anything before you depart plus useful information on the local area in the Farmhouse. We would highly recommend this and would love to return.

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.

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.
