The Tuscany region

Centrally located, the estates and villas offered by To Tuscany offer privacy yet easy access to Tuscany's many historic towns. The beauty and romance of Florence, brimming with cultural and artistic attractions Siena, and San Gimignano rich with medieval history, are within an easy hour's drive.

Even closer to home are Chianti's five regional towns, Gaiole in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Panzano, Greve in Chianti.

Arezzo is a town in the Tuscan province, situated on a hillside that is 296 meters above the sea level, between Casentino, Valdichiana and Valdarno.

Archaeological remains are evidence of its existence since VI century. The town remained important during Roman times. Its ceramics in red coral with decorations in relief were famous and copied all over the Empire during the first Imperial period. Arezzo then was as famous as it is now for its goldsmiths.


The nearest town is Ambra which is 6km away. This has 2 green groceries, a butcher, a newsagent, a pharmacy, outlet shoes, shops and a market on Tuesdays. Bucine is 7km away and this has a bank, pharmacy, butcher, bakery, newsagents, coop supermarket and a market on Wednesdays.
