Make a holiday rental home or villa in Val di Chiana, Italy your home away from home

Val di Chiana, Tuscany, lies just south of Arezzo, is named after the River Chiana which runs through the bottom of the valley. Reclaimed from the bed of a large lake, the Val di Chiana is an important communications route between Arezzo and Siena, yet the few villages which adorn the valley side are completely timeless, consisting of traditional brick cottages and thin, steep cobbled streets. The area is considered to be one of the most unspoilt rural regions in the whole of Europe, where large forests break only for idyllic mountain streams and picturesque medieval walled towns.
