Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
For a taste of la dolce vita look no further than a stay in this beautifully designed and sympathetically built Tuscan villa. Designed with meticulous care and attention to detail, Casa Borghino mixes traditional Tuscan style with contemporary modern design. Approached via a scenic drive along the shore of Lake Montedoglio, the property enjoys stunning unspoiled views of rolling hills and valleys. Inside old meets new with a seamless blend of rustic brick and stone, warm terracotta floors and ceilings and massive oak beams alongside sleek modern appliances and accessories to create an indulgent and luxurious feel throughout the villa. The keyword here is space, with a huge open plan living/dining/kitchen area as well as bigger than usual bedrooms and bathrooms that feature luxurious and stylish marble wall cladding with contemporary fittings.
With a choice of loggias designed to maximise enjoyment of the views you can decide whether to enjoy the early morning sun at breakfast in the splendour of our arched entrance loggia before moving onto lunch in the shade followed by a drink on the covered terrace which is he perfect place to view the sunset.
Casa Borghino is the perfect base from which to explore some of the key works of the Italian Renaissance, in particular works by Giotto, Piero della Francesca and Perugino. The local towns of Anghiari, Sanseplocro and Arezzo are exceptionally beautiful and relatively unknown where you can experience the real Italy away from the crowds.
For those interested in getting completely away from the rat race Casa Borghino is set in the midst of a network of marked rural footpaths from which you can explore the wild upland areas of the upper Tiber valley, much beloved by St Francis and today by those pilgrims who follow the trails in his footsteps.
There is no swimming pool and the property is priced to reflect that. We also feel that a holiday in this beautiful part of the world can mean more than lying around next to a pool when there is so much more to enjoy.
The property will be cleaned twice a week and sheets and towels are included in the rental price.
