Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy your home away from home

The walled town of Castiglion Fiorentino is a great alternative destination to Cortona when staying in this peaceful part of the Arezzo province. A visit to Castiglion Fiorentino is akin to a trip back to the Middle Ages, with strong medieval influences to be seen almost everywhere you look. The town is laid-back and friendly, and can also be used as a base for enjoying a holiday of walking and exploring in the fantastic surrounding countryside.

Things to do in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy

The well-preserved city walls are Castiglion Fiorentino’s most recognisable feature, and date back to the 13th century. Once inside the walls you will also discover an array of historical attractions on the paved streets, including the Municipal Art Gallery (in the former church of Sant’Angelo) and the remains of the town’s 14th century fortress.

As with many Tuscan towns and cities, Castiglion Fiorentino is home to immensely proud locals who hold a number of festivals and evens throughout the year to celebrate their town and the local region in general. These are great times to visit the area, as the festivals will allow you to learn more about the town and interact with these residents – in Italian of course! Popular festivals in Castiglion Fiorentino include the Palio dei Rioni – a historic June horse race, and an Easter Sunday parade.

Castiglion Fiorentino also has a train station, which provides good links with the well-known towns and cities of the region such as Cortona, Perugia, Arezzo, Siena and Pienza, and you can alternate your days of exploring these destinations with days of walking, hiking, horse riding and cycling in the unspoilt countryside that surrounds Castiglion Fiorentino.

Would have been good to have a welcome pack in the apartment and the use of an iron and ironing board in the laundry room. Also the information you provided about shop opening hours was incorrect. All the supermarkets are open until 8pm on Saturdays and some are open on Sunday morning, including the one at the end of the road (Eurospin).

The villa is set in 5 acres of private grounds with a wonderful swimming pool, open air kitchen, olive groves and a vegetable garden which Giovanna encourages her guests to make full use of. The villa itself is comfortably furnished with original Tuscan furniture, the kitchen reasonably well equipped but we spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the pool and BBQ kitchen. Giovanna lives on site so is on hand to deal with any queries and offer advice as to where to go and what to see in the area. We would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing, get away from it all holiday.
