Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Set in 40 acres of olive groves, oak woods and fields full of wild flowers, Villa Monterosi is a jewel of peace with it's own private swimming pool, rolling gardens and terraces. A place to dream of, this stone built house has been renovated to the highest ecological standards whilst maintaining its ancient character and serenity.
The villa faces south across to Umbria, rolling hills and distant mountains. Sunlight floods into the rooms, all of which have gorgeous views. The house is totally secluded and private.
The swimming pool measures 5 x 14 metres and is just beneath the house on its own wide, stone-paved terrace – out of the wind, and ideal for basking in the glorious Tuscan sunshine. Whatever the season the panoramic views are breathtaking overlooking Tuscany and onto Umbria.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is known for its beautiful landscapes of rolling hills and cypress trees, virtually unchanged in some areas for centuries. Also famous for it's 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. Tuscany has some very interesting museums, such as the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace in Florence, but there are also many in local towns and smaller villages. Tuscany has a unique culinary tradition, and is famous for its wines (most famous of which are Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano and Brunello di Montalcino).
Only 10 minutes from Anghiari is Sansepolcro, birthplace of Piero della Francesca, the famous artist. Also nearby is Caprese Michelangelo, where Michelangelo was born. Assisi, Siena, Florence and many other beautiful and historic places are within one or two hours’ drive. You can enrich your holiday experience and be home in time for drinks on the terrace in the gold of the setting sun.
