This second floor (first floor UK) stylish apartment is an ideal base for a holiday in the green, culturally-rich heart of Italy and perflectly placed for day trips to Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The sun shines for most of the spring and summer and September is a wonderful month to enjoy the town and surrounding areas. It’s ONLY a three minutes walk from the centre of Sansepolcro with its wonderful cafes, shops and restaurants. Free parking just outside the house, or private parking on request. If you are a group of friends it can be rented together with our other apartment (vrbo no.102924) discounted rate if you book both. A car is not necessary as you can use public transport to most places, and the train station is next to the house so trips to Umbria available from there.

Wifi internet throughout.

The apartment was recently renovated and can accommodate 4/5 people and costs are scaled according to number of people renting the property. Perfect for two couples as there are two bathrooms.

Sansepolcro, located right on the border with Umbria, is a beautifully preserved walled Tuscan town. It is most famous as the birthplace of the painter Piero della Francesca (1416-1492) and the town's impressive Museo Civico houses - among many other works of art - his masterpiece, La Resurrezione. This painting alone makes Sansepolcro worth a visit, but the town itself will not disappoint. WE ARE ABOUT 2 AND HALF HOURS BY CAR FROM ROME OR THREE AND HALF BY BUS STRAIGHT TO SANSEPOLCRO (LEAVES 2PM FROM ROME ).

Within its ancient walls, the old town maintains a medieval structure but its architecture is enriched by Renaissance and Baroque elements which stand shoulder to shoulder along the elegant main 'corso'. Architectural highlights include the Romanesque cathedral and Palazzo della Laudi, which overlook the handsome main square.

Sansepolcro is a prosperous and cultured town, a fact reflected in the quality of the shops that line the corso and in the high standard of the cuisine in the many excellent local restaurants, many of which we can advise you on!

Like many small Italian towns, there are numerous cultural and gastronomic festivals throughout the year. The most famous in Sansepolcro is the Palio della Balestra (second Sunday of September) a crossbow tournament in September, in which local citizens take dressing up in Renaissance costumes - fastidiously copied from Piero della Francesca be missed .

In addition to sightseeing in Sansepolcro and beyond, the town's verdant position in the Tiber River valley just below the Appenine mountains makes it a popular base for all kinds of outdoor activity holidays, such as walking, hiking, cycling, mountain-biking, canoeing and fishing - both activities possible in/on the Tiber or the Montedoglio Lake. Fly fishing permits can be arranged and a guide is also possible.

A truly perfect staring point from which to discover marvellous towns and surrounding countryside. Nearby trips within the hour to places like Cortona, Assisi, Arezzo, Anghiari, Perugia, Gubbio and about 1 hour and a half to Florence, Siena, Montepluciano, San Gimignano, the adriatic coast, Lake Trasimeno (Rome 2.30 hours). The list is endless.

PLEASE ASK FOR SPECIAL LONG TERM WINTER RATES. NEW CHEAP FORM OF HEATING (pellets). We can give you emails of past guests for reviews.

Keywords: Sunny large apartment (900 square feet), Tuscan features - high ceilings with wooden beams and parquet floor, large windows.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious, well appointed and extremely comfortable garden apartment is ideal for a couple seeking a base for an extended, relaxing stay in a genuine Tuscan community. Louise and Franco will welcome you into their impressive home but you will enjoy privacy and exclusive use of the garden and outside dining furniture. The full-sized kitchen was thoughtfully stocked with the basics to get us started. The beautiful pastries and wine were greatly appreciated.

The apartment's proximity to the historic centre renders a car unnecessary but, with safe and convenient parking, a car permits you to explore the surrounding towns and countryside at your leisure.

Our week flew by, but with more to explore and experience, I'm sure that we will return.

Spacious Accomodation

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I stayed with Louise and Franco in their 2 bed flat for 2 weeks. They are really nice and helpful people. Their place is well located to the centro, the bus station and the train. Sansepolcro is a good base for exploring that corner of Tuscany/Umbria. Sansepolcro is a very lovely Italian town.

This apartment is well- appointed with many homey touches and an excellent kitchen to cook in, if desired. As a family travelling with two teenagers, it was spacious with both family and personal areas, including access to the garden. Sansepolcro is a lovely small town with bus and train service to other areas thus while a car is not required, in our experience it is recommended. The owners are in the same building and therefore readily accessible if assistance or information is needed, which was always cheerily given. We thoroughly enjoyed our five weeks and would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to explore the Tuscan lifestyle.

Lovely, large, two bedroom apartment, Sansepolcro

  • 5 of 5

Louise and Franco were wonderful hosts! They both speak English and Italian and were a great help acquainting us with the area. On arriving, we found our refrigerator stocked with the necessities and lovely pastries from the local cafe and bake shop. There was even a bottle of Proseco!

The apartment was spacious, spotless, and tastefully decorated. I loved the high ceilings, the parquet wood floors and tall windows. We truly felt that it was our home for the two weeks that we were there. One nice thing was that we had ample parking for the car across the street in a carpark. We stayed in the apartment on the first floor. They also have one on the ground floor. The steps were fine. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen when we weren't dining out on the local cuisine. There is a great little market each week in the main square. The museums and the main church were wonderful.

Sansepolcro is a great town. The apartment is just outside the walls of the old town. We enjoyed walking the in the evening to dinner or to get a gelato! This town is a great place to use as a base for sight seeing. We had a car, but there is also a small train that goes to Perusia. There are also buses.

We absolutely can't wait to go back next year!

wonderful, charming spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sansepolcro for their yearly Crossbow festival- we had so much fun! The city is very manageable and cute. Also- a great place to camp out and day trip from there (easy drive to Cortona for example). We were only two but the apartment hold four comfortably. This apartment is wonderful- big, quiet, comfortable and convenient. It is right by the train station but no train noise and literally just outside the city walls. This was probably the only place in Italy we stayed with free parking...:) There is one flight of stairs up to the apartment. The town is so close and flat! Our hostess was very nice and we felt right at home.

Quiet Month Long Stay in Beautiful convenient and affordable area of Sansepolcro, Italy

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, convenient, and spacious. Strong internet connection. Having the train station so close to the location was very cool for day trips to near-by areas. Really enjoyed the month long stay and would return if possible. Fantastic!
