Stylish, historic apartment in lovely Arezzo

5 of 5
Locanda Bellavita is a conversion of the kitchens of a 16th century palace carried out with immense, style, flair and sympathy to the old building by Stefano, the owner. Stefano was a very helpful host - nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is located in the old part of the city. Arezzo has much fine art and architecture and splendid food. Across the road from the Locanda is a wonderful pasticceria where breakfast can be purchased every day - delicious! As it is off the main tourist trail, the main attractions (e.g. the amazing Piero della Francesca frescoes) are blissfully devoid of crowds. We will certainly return to both the Locanda and Arezzo.

Amazing holiday

5 of 5
We had never been to Italy before this holiday and it was everything we could have hoped for and so much more. Picture postcard views, quaint little towns perched on hilltops and mountain sides, amazing restaurants serving tasty food, pizzas fresh from wood fired ovens, local wines and the peace and tranquillity of a fantastic villa to relax in. We will most definitely be returning but next time for a fortnight. Thank you so much for your kindness Freyja xxx
