This villa is very private and has a beautiful view of Arezzo. It is about a 10-15 minute drive to Arezzo town center. We primarily used the villa for our hub to take day trips, so we didn’t spend a lot of time there. We were there in November so we didn’t use the pool, spa or pool house. That being said, I think we missed the primary draw of selecting this villa. It would be a great place for families with children, especially in the summer.
The owners arranged breakfasts for us each day, at a reasonable cost and they were excellent. We also had a housekeeper everyday and a gardener that was on the grounds.
The house and grounds were beautiful. We had a group of 4 couples and everyone had their own en-suite baths.
One of the owners even helped us with a problem we had with a fine we received at a toll booth. They were very accommodating.
They do charge extra for heat and A/C.
Overall, we had a wonderful week!
This stunning villa with easy access to Florence, Sienna and Cortona is the perfect getaway for a large group of friends or family. Everything is provided to ensure a great holiday. The outside space is well maintained and one can easily spend the whole day outside near the pool with amazing views over Arezzo.
We picked this for our family holiday and we had an absolutely amazing time. The villa is outstanding and had everything you would need to enjoy your holiday and the views are superb. Stella was extremely helpful and kept in touch to assist with anything we might need help with. Melina who came each day for housekeeping was very friendly and helpful.
We would definitely stay again and recommend for families of all ages.
My husband I along with several family member spent three weeks at Villa Cristina.
While we were there Europe was hit by a severe heatwave, thank goodness for the fabulous pool, gardens & aircon in the bedrooms at Villa Cristina.
The villa is on a hill with amazing views over the beautiful town of Arezzo.
There are many comfortable places to sit outside including a large table close to the kitchen where we had most of our meals.
The gazebo is an added bonus and a perfect place to laze about or read during the day and for a cocktail in the evening.
Gardeners come by early every morning and make sure the large grounds and the pool are always pristine. They bring fresh eggs from the hen house and vegetables from the garden. Villa Cristina also produces its own olive oil and delicious wines.
There’s plenty to keep children amused. Apart from the pool there’s table tennis, a billiard table and lots of games.
For those into fitness there is a gym and there’s also a large jacuzzi.
The house is extremely well equipped, all the bedrooms are en-suite and large with plenty of storage.
The owners of the house are extremely pleasant & very helpful and the ladies who came to clean each day were quick & efficient.
Just down the road from the Villa is a tennis club with a restaurant, we had the best pizzas that we’ve ever eaten there. A couple of minutes away are local shops and a PAM supermarket with fresh meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit & everything else you could possibly need.
Arezzo is a beautiful town with lots of good restaurants, bars & cafes and very good shopping, particularly for jewellery which it’s knows for. It’s very central and easy for making day trips to Florence, Siena, Luca etc.
I have rented several houses in Italy over the past few years, Villa Cristina was exceptional and far exceeded my expectations, I look forward to holidaying there again in the future.
We just returned from a terrific week at Villa Cristina. The villa itself is large, very comfortable and beautifully landscaped. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could ask for.
The gazebo and pool area overlooking the Tuscan countryside is just gorgeous. The owners Stella and Fedrica helped us arrange some wonderful activities during our stay including a delicious dinner with a private chef that we enjoyed in the gazebo as well as a private wine tasting. In addition to the arrangements, they were so caring and attentive to our needs, going out of their way to make sure we were happy. They are good at what they do and also very kind people. We love them and Villa Cristina!
Will be back! Thank you!
