Agriturismo Val di Pozzo
Farmhouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Val di Pozzo is a herb farm of over 15 hectares (30 acres) set between the upper reaches of the Tiber and Arno rivers, with Anghiari and Sansepolcro to the south east and Arezzo due south. Our eco-sustainable farmhouse is a perfect place to relax and go walking in the Tuscan hills, where the upper wooded slopes provide cool shade even in high summer. Immersed in nature, Val di Pozzo is also a fantastic place to star-gaze on summer nights!
Val di Pozzo is a beautiful place for a rural holiday or a relaxing weekend break. We're on a hill farm in chestnut woods, about 40 mins from Arezzo, with spectacular views over southern Tuscany. Other nearby locations are San Sepolcro, Monterchi, Cortona and Camaldoli and the National Park of the Casentino Forest, and you can do day trips to Florence or Siena. This is a perfect base for exploring the region, which is rich in wildlife and medieval castles, villages, and churches. Local culinary specialities include truffles, saffron, porcini mushrooms and wild boar, which can be tasted in the many excellent restaurants of the area.
Val di Pozzo has eco-restored stone farm buildings, run on solar energy. We offer our guests independent self-catering ground floor accommodation, in two apartments, each comprising a bedroom, living room with kitchen and bathroom, and the use of a shared outdoor terrace and barbecue. The owner lives on site and is a qualified hiking guide- day and half-day guided walks can be arranged for guests.
The last section of the road (2.5 km) down to the farm is fairly steep and unsurfaced and a suitable vehicle is recommended. For a small fee, we can provide a lift from the end of the asphalted road, and also from the local rail station of Subbiano for guests arriving by train.

"Really beautiful and peaceful part of Tuscany"
I stayed for a week in the Lavanda apartment at Val di Pozzo and had a really relaxing holiday. The agriturismo is in the most beautiful secluded spot at an altitude of 700m. It offers far-reaching views of the valleys below and of several ranges of mountains in the distance. There were wild flowers everywhere and more different types of butterflies than I've every seen. While the towns lower in the valley were sweltering in July temperatures, back at Val di Pozzo there was always a breeze. When I was there, even in the hottest hours of the day, it was very pleasant sitting in the shade, reading or just resting.
Owners Toni and Fabrizio have lived in Tuscany for nearly 20 years and are a fount of information for trips to not only the better known towns in the area such as Arezzo and Siena but also to countless picturesque smaller towns and hamlets that are further off the beaten track. And if walking is your thing, there are several options (for both short and longer hikes) in the immediate vicinity of Val di Pozzo and because the area is wooded and therefore shaded, many of these can be done even at the height of summer.
The flat itself had everything I needed: kitchen area, dining table, sofa, very comfy bed and very nice bathroom - all furnished in traditional farmhouse style and spotlessly clean.
