The small local shop in Prato di Strada is just 3 minutes down the road but there is a wider range of shops in Strada only 5 minutes away in the car, including 3 banks with ATM and a Post Office. There is a wonderful bakery and delicatessen, an award winning butcher's shop and there are other fresh produce shops, bars and restaurants. Our house is well placed to explore the local area and Poppi and Bibbiena are 15 and 20 minutes away. Arezzo is the provincial capital and is reached in less than an hour by car. Day visits to Florence, Chianti, Sienna, Cortona and even Rome can be reached by train from Arezzo.
Location description from owner
The Tuscany region
Tuscany is one of the most visited regions of Italy and we are well situated to enjoy all it has to offer being about one hour from the provincial capital of Arezzo, and about an hour away from Florence.
Rome can be reached in an hour by train from Arezzo.
Castel San Niccolo
There are many activities available in the immediate area: Hill walking and rambling. Horse riding. Cycling along the peaceful roads and tracks. Bird Watching. There is a 9 hole Golf Club in Poppi with daily membership available at reasonable rates and the views are magnificent. Excellent clubs are available for hire and there is also a golf driving range. Places to visit are many and varied and include: local Tuscan hill towns and villages – one of the most beautiful is Poppi about 10 minutes drive away. Arezzo is the provincial capital with elegant squares, winding streets and a wide range of shops. Siena can be reached as a day visit. Cortona is the beautiful town and recently made famous by the book and film "Under and the Tuscan Sun" . It is about an hour away by car. The Sanctuary of St. Francis at La Verna is a fascinating place to visit and spectacularly located. Casa Giardino is far from the sound made by major roads, and we enjoy NO light pollution. Therefore we appreciate the clear skies, millions of stars, shooting stars and the moon all mixed together with the summer call of the crickets. The light has an unremitting luminescence and long, long hours of brilliant sunshine. Visit us in June, when we are amazed by the spectacle in our garden and the lane of the spectacular Fireflies, which remind us of the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree during the festive season in December.

“A peaceful retreat in a beautiful part of Tuscany”
The service and information provided by the owners at the time of booking was exceptionally good and very informative. Replies to my subsequent emails about the property were answered very promptly. We stayed at the property for eleven days in mid/late September. The weather was hot with temperatures for much of the time at around 30 degrees. We had a couple of days with thunder-storms and heavy showers but were still able to get out and explore. The house is on the edge of a small hamlet and in a truly peaceful location with excellent views. The balcony offered an ideal location for meals and for evening glasses of wine. We also enjoyed the garden, especially the sun warmed figs which were plentiful, and used the pool almost every day. Despite the high temperatures, the style of house with its small windows and wooden shutters allowed us to keep the house cool during the hot days. The accommodation offered everything we needed for our stay including an abundance of information describing places to visit and how best to get around. There were plenty of DVDs to watch in the evenings although the indoor seating was not ideal for lounging about. The owners had recently provided a laptop with wifi internet access. I found the signal at the property to be very weak, very slow and could only be obtained outside the property. I did not regard this as a significant problem. We are most grateful to Danni who gave us a warm welcome, plenty of advice and tips and was at hand if we needed help.
“Wonderful peaceful place to stay”
We enjoyed a wonderful welcome by the owners at this fabulous house in a beautiful setting. We had everything we needed and more- a real home from home! The pool and garden were great. We were able to combine relaxing peaceful days in the sun with fascinating visits to beautiful Italian villages and Florence, Arrezo and Siena (all easy to get to). The information left by the owners was invaluable- we followed their restaurant recommendations and had some really lovely meals out.
