Set in the heart of the historic centre of Anghiari, a beautiful, medieval, hill top town in Tuscany, this apartment has been renovated to an extremely high, luxurious standard, whilst respecting the history of the building, maintaining as many original features as possible. Set in the former 16th century convent of “La Maddalena” this type of living accommodation is unique within the town, with the original nuns 'cells' converted into a number of flats all linked by an internal courtyard and wide communal stairways. The courtyards have barely changed since its original use and provide a stunning entrance to this home.

Large wooden, double doors lead you away from the street and into the former convent. The passageway, lined with bikes and old vespas will transport you through time as soon as you walk inside and leads into the communal courtyard and stairs leading up to the apartments.

The apartment was fully renovated in 2010 and boasts beautifully restored beamed ceilings and are a combination of terracotta tiles and hard wood floors.

The front door of the apartment leads into a large hallway that is a flexible space for dining or play. To the left of the hallway, are the original 'cells' which have been cleverly converted into functional rooms. The kitchen, directly to the left of the front door, is full of rustic charm with bespoke, brick built cupboards and tiled tops. The next cell has been transformed into a cosy lounge area, with a flat screen TV with sky, a DVD player and stereo system. From the lounge window there are stunning views of Anghiari.

There is a large, contemporary bathroom to the right and 2 spacious double bedrooms further down the hallway, both of which are light and airy.

A discreet utility room provides a closed off space for the washing machine.

WIFI is available to guests free of charge.

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

The Anghiari area

Anghiari is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The town has preserved its medieval roots beautifully and hosts many local festivals throughout the year celebrating its heritage and the local culture and cuisine. There are several pizza restaurants here including an outdoor one with a children's play area as well as some superb traditional Tuscan restaurants.

Sansepolcro is a few kilometers away and is famed for being home to the painting of the Resurrection by Peiro della Francesca which can be seen at the Museo Civico along with several other important pieces of art. For those with children to entertain, there is a large swimming pool in the town with water slides and diving boards as well as shaded picnic areas and a children's play area.

Arezzo is a 30 minute drive from the house. It has a main train station with lines to Florence and Rome. It is a beautiful town that hosts a jousting contest every year that draws crowds from all over Tuscany and beyond. On the first weekend of every month there is an antiques fair that fills every street of the old part of the town.

Other beautiful places to visit that are easily reached for a day trip include; Siena, Assisi, Cortona, Florence. From our office in Anghiari we are happy to organize wine tasting and depending on the time of year, olive picking to produce your own oil to take home.
