DESTINATIONSVilla Ambra is located in Bucine, a small village in the province of Arezzo, in the heart of the Valdambra valley. The latter is one of the most beautiful valleys of Tuscany, crossed by the Ambra stream and placed on the natural boundary with the mountains of Southern Chianti, in a strategic location, right in the centre of the triangle formed by the cities of Arezzo, Florence and Siena.
Rich in woods, vineyards and olive groves, the Valdambra valley is characterised by little hamlets with ancient walls, forts and castles, but also rural buildings and farmhouses, which still preserve the rural flavour of the Tuscan countryside. The proximity to the Chianti Classico region - known worldwide for the prestigious wine - allows you to visit its charming villages such as Gaiole, Radda and Castellina. In this regard, Villa Ambra offers guests the opportunity to visit its cellars with a free tasting of its excellent home-made wines.
For sports lovers, we recommend to walk along the charming paths through the woods or reach the polo club and the riding centre (located in the vicinity of the villa).Wellness lovers can, instead, take some pleasant and relaxing baths in the hot sulfur springs of Rapolano Terme (16 km).Lastly, if you love shopping, we suggest to visit The Valdichiana Village Outlet (35 km), where you can find the most important brands of international fashion.
