The Tuscany region
Arezzo is not to be missed an has a beautiful medieval centre.
Our property is in the border of Florence and Arezzo regions and is equidistant to both cities.
Although our address is Loro Ciuffenna, we are closer to Castelfranco di Sopra
Rich in history and medieval military architecture Loro Ciuffenna, near Arezzo, counts about 5000 inhabitants. In town you can visit Palazzo Venturi, the museum dedicated to local artist Venturino Venturi, or go to the nearby charming church of San Pietro a Gropina.
Loro Ciuffenna is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, thanks to the unique and peaceful landscapes. Loro Ciuffenna lies between the River Arno (towards Arezzo) and the hills that form that prelude the mountain of Pratomagno. All around the "Balze" (crags), superb natural formations of clay and sand up to a hundred meters high, which also characterize the area near the town of Castelfranco. The stone houses built overlooking the gorge of the river Ciuffenna, cobblestone, dark and winding streets, the old bridge, warn that the Middle Ages have left deep scars in Loro Ciuffenna.
Crossing the bridge of Loro Ciuffena, you will be in front of the Clock Gate (Porta dell'Orologio), leading to the heart of the urban core. Here's a main road, stretched from east to west and culminating with a second gate, where it is concentrated in the vitality of the town and from which you can reach all parts of Loro Ciuffenna. Among the buildings that is worth admiring is the church of Santa Maria Assunta, mentioned for the first time in a document dated 1275, that preserves a valuable golden background polyptych, which represents a Madonna and Saints, made early in the fifteenth century by Bicci di Lorenzo. In the area there are many churches, all of Romanesque origin but enriched, inside, with works dating from various periods, ranging from Gothic to Baroque.
Do not miss the church of St Maria in Faeto and St Biagio al Borro, but also the sanctuary of the Madonna of Humility (1604), with many seventeenth-century works of art. Anyway the churches built along the ancient Via Clodia are the true queens of the zone, precious witnesses of pilgrimages and inexhaustible devotion: the beautiful church of St Giustino, and the special St Peter in the village of Gropina, one of the most incredible churches of all Tuscany.
