◀ Back

Once a “casa colonica”, i.e. farmhouse, Villa Gialla is a very charming, welcoming property: spacious, genuine and simple, in typical Tuscan countryside style, it rises atop a gentle hill just overlooking the Arezzo valley, surrounded by rows of slender cypresses, shimmering olive groves and soft-hued fields.

Splendidly located the villa is fully immersed in the luxuriant countryside, and at just a brief, pleasant, drive from innumerable attractions from sport activities, Spas and Arezzo’s superb artistic heritage to Casentino’s shady forests and mysterious monasteries…

The 2-floor villa perfectly preserves its original architecture and features 9 cozy double bedrooms (2 twins), all recently restored and furnished with rustic piece. The 8 bathrooms (5 en-suite in bedrooms) ensure each guest enjoys full comfort and privacy. The common areas are spacious, warm and full of character. Furnished in classical Tuscan country style, they boast gorgeous rustic red “cotto” floors and wooden beam ceilings.

Two lovely living rooms (one boasting a period fireplace) decorated with colorful fabrics and simply, yet tastefully, furnished, guarantee innumerable moments of leisure and comfort, as does the exquisite library with its snug armchairs. The pleasant dining room and fully equipped kitchen provide guests with all they need for unforgettable in-house meals.

The property also comprises a quiet, relaxing garden, which comprises soft well-groomed lawns, a shimmering swimming pool (refreshing oasis during hot summer months!), and a lovely covered dining veranda hosting up to 30 persons at its large country table.

Superbly located, Villa Gialla offers a wide array of sightseeing and lifestyle experience options. Visit Arezzo, seat of Italy’s most important antique fair, set of Roberto Benigni’s “Life is beautiful”!; the city was birthplace to many great men and it boasts awe inspiring artwork and architecture. Admire the stone-paved neighboring ancient towns, explore Casentino’s grand forests, mystifying abbeys and monasteries, and do not forget to indulge in the scrumptious local specialties and ambrosial wines!

Authentic, naturally graceful and full of charm, Villa Gialla is ideal for large families and groups of friends and offers each of its guests a taste of genuine Tuscany.
