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.

We had the most perfect stay for the week and our wedding was equally as perfect. The villa staff were absolutely amazing with the preparation of the house and food. Nothing was every too much trouble for them and we and our guests were always made to feel so special. A huge thanks to you as well for all your help and assistance through all the organisation for the wedding. Everything went just perfectly and we would not have wanted anything different. We had the most special time in Italy and it wouldn't have been half as wonderful without yours help!

The whole property was spotless and Sabrina the manager was very helpful. We would thoroughly recommend it. Fabio K.
