Villa | 9 bedrooms | sleeps 18
Villa Fontebranda is situated within a large, historical estate near Arezzo, in a splendid commanding and panoramic position on the gentle hills to the east of the city. The farm on which the property is located was set up after the war and developed during the 1960s. Today it is an important wine-making estate exporting its products all over the world. The villa has recently been renovated and transformed into a very attractive, tastefully furnished residence with all mod cons and quality furniture. The large outdoor swimming pool (8 x 16 m), which is in a beautiful position, is provided for the exclusive use of the guests.

It is possible to organize day trips to Florence which can be reached in less than one hour by car or even by train. The Etruscan town of Cortona and Lake Trasimeno are just 30 km away.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
