Villa “Il Pozzo” is situated in the heart of the Aretinian Valdarno, 16 kilometres from Arezzo, 65 from Florence, 57 from Siena and 20 km from the two nearest exits on the Motorway A1 (either Valdarno or Arezzo).

The nearest airport is Florence, about 1h 20 min away by car, whereas Rome and Pisa airports are about 2 hours away.

It is a haven of tranquillity, located on a low hill with a wonderful view over the Arno valley. Its position is an excellent starting point for trips to the many places of interest that this corner of Tuscany offers, with its rich artistic and historical heritage: Florence, Cortona, Siena and the Chianti region are just a short distance away.

The villa itself is a typical farmhouse, dating back to mid.18th century, which perfectly preserves the charm and the original architectural characteristics of the so called “leopoldine” houses, built in the Tuscan countryside during the reign of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo of Lorena. It has recently been restored and transformed into a comfortable country mansion surrounded by a 9 hectare estate in the middle of an environmentally protected area.

About 1 hectare around the house is fenced and used as a garden with a wide parking area at the back of the main house, from which there is a lift to the first floor.

The large swimming pool (15x7,5 m -1m/3m deep) located on the lawn to the front of the house enjoys full sunshine from dawn to sunset and it is equipped with deck chairs and beach umbrellas as well as hot/cold shower and night lighting.

Outside there is also an ancient wood-burning oven, which the guests can use.

The main building has 3 floors. On the ground floor there are large finely restored halls with “cotto” tiles and vaulted ceilings. The staircase to the front leads to the 50 sq. m. wide covered loggia with a splendid view over the surrounding countryside, ideal for dinners in the summer season. From here you gain access to the huge fireplace hall, furnished with comfortable sofas and a billiard for the guests to enjoy some moments of leisure. Next to it and also opening onto the loggia is the ample kitchen which, besides being equipped with any kind of modern appliances including cooker, electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, coffee machines for both Italian and American coffee, also preserves a fireplace and a woodburning oven. The table sits as many as 14 people and there is also a satellite TV.

From the central hall there is access to the night area which is divided into 3 independent units. The first has a large double bedroom giving onto the loggia, a room with twin beds and a bathroom with shower and tub; the second has a large double bedroom and a wide bathroom with tub and shower; the third unit has two bedrooms with twin beds and a bathroom with shower.

From the central hall a wooden staircase leads to the airy 60 sq. m. main bedroom inside the ancient dovecot tower at the top of the house which offers a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside. A curved wall separates the bathroom with shower from the sleeping area with a double bed. The luminosity of this room along with its extraordinary ceiling ribbed with century-old wooden beams make it an exclusive and unique space.
