The Tuscany region
Tuscany is known for its beautiful landscapes, its rich artistic legacy and vast influence on high culture. Tuscany is widely regarded as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and has been home to some of the most influential people in history, such as Petrarch, Dante, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, Amerigo Vespucci and Puccini. Due to this, the region has several museums, most of which (such as the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace) are found in Florence, but others in towns and smaller villages. Tuscany has a unique culinary tradition, and is famous for its wines (most famous of which are Chianti, Morellino di Scansano and Brunello di Montalcino). The summers in Tuscany are hot, usually without much rain. Spring (April and May) and Autumn (October and November) are dry, sunny days but the chances of rain are higher. The Winter has sunny, mild days and it can get very cold at night particularly in the hilly areas. As expected July is the hottest month with temperatures ranging from 23°C up to 30°C; January is the coldest month with about 7°C at the coast and about 3.5°C to 5.5°C inland. The busiest time in Tuscany (and Italy generally) is August when the Italians are on holiday. The main tourist season stretches from mid-April to the end of September.
Anghiari is our local town which is about ten minutes drive from Casa Leana. Many festivals are held there throughout the year (details at the house). The panoramic view from Anghiari is truly spectacular, made all the more so by the long, straight road running across the flat floor of the Upper Tiber valley from Sansepolcro and up the steep hill to the town. The view towards Anghiari is equally splendid, with the city walls rising up from a steep spur above the Tiber and the Sovara valleys. Anghiari is rated one of the most beautiful villages in Italy
"Uno dei borghi più belli d'Italia"
Citerna is the nearest hamlet to ours and houses a grocers shop and three or four fabulous restaurants together with a few other jewellry and knick knack shops. It is high on a hill with wonderful views of the valley. Again, festivals take place throughout the year (details at the house).
Arezzo is our nearest major town and is about 20 minutes drive from the house. It is set on a steep hill rising from the floodplain of the Arno - it has many fabulous boutiques and restuarants. There is an excellent market held there on the first Sunday of the month which is said to be the best in Tuscany and many other activities take place throughout the year (details at the house).
Siena is also nearby where the Palio di Siena is held - a famous horse race which is held annually in the middle of town. The Mille Miglia which is a famous classic car race usually runs through one of our nearby villages and is an exciting event to watch. These are just examples of the countless festivals and events that take place in the area throughout the season - a list of which you will find at the house.
A visit to Florence is another wonderful day out either by train from Arezzo (about 30 minutes) or by car from the house which takes just under an hour.
You can take a fast train from Arezzo to Rome (about 1 hour ten minutes journey) where you can spend a day sight seeing.
A visit to Lake Trasimeno is a great day out if you wanted a time off from site seeing. It is about a fifty minute car journey and you can swim, sunbathe and hire boats or take a trip on a ferry across to the different islands on the lake.

"Fantastic Holiday Villa"
What can I say about Casa Leana and Tuscany? Well it was just one of the best holidays ever!
Starting with the friendly service from Di and Leigh who both met us in Anghiari and took us to the villa so that we didn't get lost. What a great couple who obviously take great pride in looking after their guests - from the breakfast hamper to all the useful information that they provide about the area. Great parking tips!
The villa itself was just perfect to house our family of 5 plus our chocolate labrador - loads of space for the kids to loose themselves in. They couldn't decide whether to swim in the pool (which was amazing in October), have a table tennis or pool tournament or watch one of the many DVD's they hadn't seen. On top of that they then started a family chess tournament having never played it before! I, of course, lost that!
The villa has lots of touches and I felt completely at home as soon as I stepped through the front door! Fantastic kitchen, extremely comfortable beds and a wine selection to die for! The garden was spectacular and we changed our morning cup of tea spot each day to appreciate it all.
The location was ideal and we managed to visit Florence and Siena both of which I'd strongly recommend. Breathtaking! Anghiari itself is lovely and has pizza/pasta restaurants and an ice-cream cafe that I will really miss.
I can't praise this package enough and I will definitely be telling all my friends it's worth a visit. Look forward to returning soon!

"Best holiday ever!"
Several reasons why this was literally the best holiday ever.
* The most fantastic friendly service from the owners Di and Leigh who couldn't do enough for us
* The most stunning location - the sort that every time you look up from your book by the pool you need to pinch yourself
* A house full of character and charm
* A fully stocked wine cellar of hand picked wines by Leigh who REALLY knows his wines
* The option to have the lovely next door neighbour pop round and cook you a fantastic traditional italian meal
* A truly breathtakingly beautiful hilltop village down the road (Anghiari).
* And I got proposed to by the pool over looking some of the most beautiful views I have seen. Now you can't beat that!
Lovely couple and lovely place.

"Simply perfect for an extended family get away!"
We knew we were in good hands from the minute Leigh collected us from Perugia airport.
A short 45 minute trip and we joined the rest of our extended family at Casa Leana. Yes I am slightly biased, I love all things Italian and all things with a bit of history and I fell in love with this beautiful villa at first sight.
Every room is tastefully decorated, with the comfort of guests clearly in mind and the HUGE kitchen and 'al fresco' patio offer the perfect space for everybody to come together. We all had great fun in the games room too.
The weather was kind to us so we were able to spend hours at the pool, playing badminton and enjoying barbecues, all while enjoying the most fabulous Tuscan scenery anyone could wish for.
All this AND it's just short train ride from Florence, Rome and Venice - who could ask for more? We'll be back next year without a doubt.

"The perfect location for a relaxing Tuscan retreat, a real home away from home!"
If you're looking for a relaxing holiday, in an authentic and beautifully restored Italian farm-house, nestled into the Tuscan hillside, with access to some of Italy's most beautiful & bustling cities...then Casa Leana is THE place for you!!
We had the most wonderful family holiday and can't wait to go back every year!! It really is a special home with something for everyone - from the lovely open-plan kitchen that made dinner time a real family affair, the picturesque views that we woke up to every morning, the chill-time we had around the pool (under the Tuscan sun), a bit of family competitiveness in the games room...to our little adventures to Siena & Florence, not to mention all the lovely little hilltop villages right on your doorstep!
The owners are super friendly & helpful....and have done an amazing job kitting the house (and garden) out with everything you need (including wifi - if you still need access to the 'outside' world).
