La Luna Apartment.
About the home
La Luna is in the smaller house of Tenuta Savorgnano known as La Botteghina.. The name means “little shop” and many years ago it served as a trading-post for a collection of hamlets around Savorgnano. This part of the house was originally made for storage and for keeping animals. It is now a ground floor apartment with a good sized dining kitchen leading through to a large bedroom/sitting room with another door out to a seating area. The conversion of the building was carried out to preserve the 18th century features like the original timbers – lintels and beams – and the stone roof tiles. The modern bathroom has a shower, hand basin and toilet. The apartment is double glazed and has central heating.
The three apartments share the extensive private grounds, the 12m x 6m pool and the easily accessible car park with the B&B. Those staying in the apartments for a full week or more receive a complimentary welcome hamper of food and drink so there's no need to shop as soon as you arrive. Towels, bedding, utilities and end-of-week cleaning/linen change are included in the price. If you feel like a day off from cooking or going out, breakfast and dinner can be taken with the B&B guests.

There are sun loungers by the swimming pool and pool towels are provided.
Just beyond the garden lies the old village church and in the other direction is the village itself from where you can follow footpaths up into the peaceful hills, as far as the Castello di Montauto if you have the energy! Between Tenuta Savorgnano and Anghiari lies Monti Rognosi nature reserve where there are many footpaths.

The Tuscany / Arezzo Province region
Tenuta Savorgnano is conveniently located for visiting the major sites of Tuscany and Umbria, so day-trips could include: Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Urbino, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Orvieto and the Chianti region. Arezzo province is more wooded and greener than other areas of Tuscany and also less developed with quieter roads and a more relaxed pace. The provincial capital of Arezzo has a wonderful old town which is home to many good restaurants and antique shops and once a month hosts an enourmous antiques fair - filling the whole of the historic centre.
Tuscany enjoys about 300 days of sun each year and from April through till September you can enjoy eating outdoors and relaxing. July and August are the hottest months, with May, June and September being temperate.
The Anghiari area
Anghiari is our nearest town, about 15 minutes drive away along quiet country roads. With its stunning city battlements and fairytale towers Anghiari is not to be missed, especially when flood-lit at night. There is a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops. Still very much a lived-in town, Anghiari has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We may be biased, but we think it has the best pizzeria too!
This area is known as the Casentino. The dramatic wooded hills and small towns make for great exploring. For example the great monastries at Chiusi La Verna and Camaldoli, Poppi with its striking castle dominating the town and smaller villages such as Monterchi and Monte Santa Maria Tiberina. Across the plane from Anghiari lies Sansepolcro, birthplace of Piero della Francesca who's paintings and frescoes can be found in all corners of this region - in Sansepolcro itself at the Museo Civico, the Museum of the Madonna del Parto in Monterchi and his famous fresco cycle 'The legend of the true cross' in Arezzo.
Many local towns host events such as the 'giostra del saracino' jousting in Arezzo and the Umbria Jazz festival in Perugia. There are also lots of food fairs throughout the year, and regular local markets - great for sampling the regional produce. Walking, cycling and horseriding are great ways to enjoy the scenery.
