The house is part of a historic built farmhouse, set on a mountainside (840m) in an area full of natural parks, forest and walking trails ('sentieri').

Just as described - an idyllic, no frills, back-to-basics, charming, rural mountain cottage. With all the basic comforts needed to compliment a beautiful landscape.

Very much enjoyed this cottage up in the mountains. Great for walking. The cottage itself is lovely and very comfortable. It's basic but complete. It ticked all the boxes for us.

About the neighbourhood
Highlights for us include Sansepolcro and its buildings, churches and Piero della Francesca paintings, Monterchi (a wonderful hilltop Tuscan town with the Madonna del Parto on display), La Verna and its monastery, stunning Anghiari, Arezzo and its antiques market (and scenes from Life is Beautiful), and the fantastic fruit and vegetables at the local market in Pieve Santo Stefano (and the fresh pasta shop there too!).

We send a guide to local markets and restaurants to guests. The quality of the food in the valtiberina area is tremendous and, even better, the prices are low as the area is not as 'touristy' as the rest of Tuscany. There are a number of great restaurants within an easy drive of the cottage. At weekends, there is also a local, rural pizzeria run by a local family...

How to get there
Airport: Bologna Forli: 80.0 km
Railway: Sansepolcro: 15.0 km
We tend to fly Ryanair to Bologna Forli, Perugia, Pisa, Florence, Bologna, Rome Ciampino, Rimini or Ancona. Any budget airline to those airports, Florence, Perugia or Rimini would be ideal.

You do need a car to get to the house, and to see some of the best sites in the area. For car hire we have found Hertz (if accessed via Ryanair) cheapest, or holidayautos. You can either pick the car up from the airport, or get the train to Arezzo or Florence and collect a car there.

Being so close to nature at the cottage makes us very aware of the impact our travelling has. We’re hoping in the long term to make the cottage much more environmentally friendly, we’re already trying to re-use, and recycle as much as we can and think about the things we buy like cleaning products and light-bulbs....
