The Tuscany region

Its favorable position in the central area of Tuscany makes it easy to reach the principle Tuscan art cities like Florence (50 km), Siena (60 km), Arezzo (30 km) and Pisa (120 km), both by car and train, as the railway station is only 10 km from Villino Blu.

About two kilometers away is the village of Loro Ciuffenna, where many characteristics of this ancient medieval hamlet have been preserved – like the PIEVE DI SAN PIETRO A GROPINA, an 8th century AD Roman parish church – and where visitors can find typical restaurants and shops, supermarkets, bars, banks and a pharmacy.

The unpaved road leading to Villino Blu is reserved exclusively to guests and the entry to the villa is provided with an automatic gate.

The villa is immersed in a charming garden of approximately 1,500 square meters that is enclosed by hedges, flowers and roses, and equipped with a barbecue, lounges, a 6 x 12 meter pool that is 1.40 meters deep with lateral steps. There are also three covered garages at guests' disposal.

The villa is nicely furnished, very spacious and comfortable:

ON THE GROUND FLOOR: A living room with two sofas (one is a queen size sofa bed) and two armchairs, provided with satellite TV, video and DVD player, PlayStation2 and Internet ADSL.

A large kitchen/dining area for up to 12 persons, equipped with refrigerator, freezer, oven, dishwasher and four-burner stove (methane gas); direct access to a patio furnished with tables and chairs for dining outdoors.

Also on this floor is a double bedroom with a bathroom with a shower and washing machine.

ON THE FIRST FLOOR: The hallway leads to three double bedrooms and one bedroom with bunk bed, where it is possible to add an extra bed.

There is a bathroom with a bathtub, and a bathroom with a shower and a terrace with a panoramic view.

Loro Ciuffenna

The Pieve di San Pietro a Gropina is the most visited church in the province of Arezzo: a splendid Roman construction with very particular features, splendid capitals, and a unique pulpit that derives from the ancient ruins of a Longobard church lying beneath the pavement.

Its simple sandstone 'a flaretto' (in thin layers) façade reflects the motif of the three naves inside. Inside the church, we find a pulpit that is considered the artistic treasure of the Pieve di S.Pietro a Gropina.

The opportunity to admire this unique and particular ancient church, a masterpiece of 8th century AD architecture, where art becomes symbolism and mystery, makes the trip worthwhile. I must add that, during my visits to Tuscany, I have seen many pulpits, but never one like this one. Indeed, there are no others so ancient and peculiarly built with knotted columns. This type of column represents the great mystery of Faith and the Holy Trinity with its three equal but distinct beings: Father and Son are represented by two knotted columns, and the Holy Spirit is symbolized by the knot.
