The Tuscany region

Between the Tiber and Arno rivers, the local landscape has remained unchanged for centuries. Broad conifers and woods of oak and chestnut trees are scattered with archaeological remains dating back to Etruscan, Roman and Lombard times, discreet human vestiges that merge perfectly with the environment. It is a crossroads that for centuries was travelled by troops, shepherds, pilgrims and merchants, who carried theirs goods along the “Salt Route”. It is an ancient fief that once belonged to the Lords of Montauto. They ruled these valleys for centuries from their castle on the hill opposite the farmhouse. The Castel of Montauto was also the place where St. Francis of Assisi liked to pause during his journeys to and from La Verna. A week can be passed along the routes sketched on Leonardo da Vinci's Val di Chiana map; guests may admire the landscapes that are depicted in the background of Piero della Francesca's masterpieces. It is a part of Tuscany devoted to those who love unspoilt landscape rich in charm and silence or for those who like searching for fortified hamlets, parish churches, castles and hermitages secluded in the valleys nestling in the hills that divide the two rivers. Anghiari, Monterchi and Sansepolcro are the vertices of a triangle in the High Valtiberina, and as any borderland, they are a melting pot of traditions and flavours.Situated in the hills that divide Tuscany from Umbria (600 m. above sea level) and due to its central position, our properties are only a day's drive away from the main artistic cities of Central Italy, like:Arezzo: lies on a hill close to the Appennino Tosco-Romagnolo. As its architecture proves, Arezzo boasts its ancient origin first as one of the greatest Etruscan towns and then a strategic Roman city. The upper part keeps a remarkable medieval aspect with the Cathedral and the Medici Fortress. The rather Gothic Cathedral contains fine works of art among which Saint Mary Magdalene by Piero della Francesca and the stained-glass windows by Guillame de Marcillat. The central Piazza Grande shows different styles of architecture: next to the medieval towers are the imposing Renaissance Loggiato Vasariano, the Palazzo delle Fraternita dei Laici, a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance architecture, and the apse of the Pieve di Santa Maria. It hosts annually the Giostra del Saracino , a tournament held on the third Sunday of June and the first Sunday of September, and the Antique Fair on the first weekend of every month. The Bacci Chapel in the Basilica di San Francesco houses the stunning Renaissance cycle of frescoes of the legend of the True Cross by Piero della Francesca. The single-nave church of San Dominic houses the newly restored Crucifix by Cimabue. Many other churches and palaces prove how important and original in the centuries Arezzo was. Notable are the Badia delle Sante Flora e Lucilla, the church of La Santissima Annunziata, Palazzo Pretorio and Palazzo dei Priori, and at a few minutes outside the walls, the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the Romanesque Pieve di Sant'Eugenia al Bagnoro. The museums offer a large variety of remarkable works of art: the Archaeological Museum Gaio Cilnio Mecenate, the Medieval and Modern Art Museum, the Casa Vasari Museum, the Casa Ivan Bruschi Museum and the Diocesan Museum.Florence: small and immense and at the same time, it's an open air museum grown more beautiful over the centuries; a treasure chest enclosed by ancient walls that safeguard grandiose masterworks of art and architecture so close that you can almost touch them. From its magnificent position, the city sits at the feet of the Appennine Mountains in a valley that opens onto the Arno Plain. Its buildings and monuments tell stories of art, war and life. Its streets, today crowded with tourists, are the same ones through which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante and many other of the most illustrious minds of all time, threaded their way. Florence's museums, palaces, and churches house some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. The most popular and important sites in Florence include the Dom Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Uffizi, the Bargello, and the Accademia. The churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce are veritable art galleries, and the library of San Lorenzo is a magnificent exhibition of Michelangelo's architectural genius. Wander some of the oldest streets in the city until you reach the Arno River, cross the Ponte Vecchio, and experience the "newest" area of Florence, the Oltrarno. Be sure to set aside time to see the vast and varied art collection housed in the Pitti Palace. When you grow weary of museums and monuments, head outdoors. Spend a day at the Boboli Gardens or climb the hill to the church of San Miniato al Monte to experience an enchanting view of Florence.

Anghiari

Our properties are surrounded by a natural park with its pines, lavanders and roses that you can enjoy all day long, but you should also visit:Anghiari (11km far): It's an enchanting medieval hamlet overlooking the Tiber and Sovara valleys. It consists of an ancient settlement surrounded by a ring of impressive thirteenth-century walls and of a more recent area from the eighteenth-century.Sansepolcro (18km far):It's a typical Renaissance town that stands beyond the Tiber, in a wide amphitheatre at the foot of Alpe della Luna. The Town Museum hosts one of the major masterpieces by Piero della Francesca: the Polyptych of the Misericordia with the Crucifixion, St. Julian, and the famous Resurrection. Monterchi (19km far):It's a lovely village on the road that connects Sansepolcro to Arezzo. It is a 'must-see' for those who do not want to miss the Madonna del Parto, one of the most important masterpieces by Piero della Francesca: a fresco of extraordinary intensity representing the pregnant Mary.
