Perks for the Parents

This apartment in a farmhouse with a pool is set 400m above sea level in the heart of the Casentino Valley near Arezzo, an hour and a half east of Florence on an old family estate. It’s a green and off the beaten path corner of Tuscany and is on a working farm with animals, crops, fields and meadows, woods. The owners live in the main farm house all year round. Family pets (and horses!) welcomed.

Why Kids Love it

The pool, farm animals and surrounding area are great for kids. There is so much to enjoy about the nearby countryside - footpaths plus day visits to the zoo, castles, forests and small villages with nice restaurants and ice cream parlors. There is a national park nearby. A high chair, kids books and toys and bicycles are provided. The pool has a toddler pool 50cm deep.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights in low and medium season, 1 week in high season. The pool is fenced and is set away from the house. There is mountain bike rental nearby and a riding school 400m away with horses and ponies for kids and an English-speaking teacher. Washing machine and maid service available on request.

About the Location

The farm is in a rural location an hour and a half east of Florence. The Casentino Valley is easily accessible, with walks following in the footprints of S. Francis and Dante Alighieri. Other attractions include medieval hamlets, monasteries and ruins and the National Park, and you can shop local products (Casentino cloths and hams and more.) The hosts are glad to help guests and to share excursion tips (Tuscany, Umbria and also Romagna and Rome). Car hire essential. The closest international airport is in Florence, with Perugia 1 hour 45 minutes away and Rome a 3-hour drive.

Accommodation Details

The apartment has a private loggia with garden table and seats and independent entrance, a large living-dining with fitted-out kitchen and old fireplace and double sofa-bed, a large bedroom (with a single bed or baby bed that can be added), and a tiled bathroom with tub. The outdoor space includes a large swimming pool (8 x 15 x 1.4 m), a tiled solarium and large meadow.

Style Notes

Bright, rustic and welcoming. This rustic farmhouse apartment has beautiful touches, local linens and tiled floors with original features including exposed ceiling beams and brickwork walls.

Arezzo, Tuscany

La vita è bella

This medieval town between Perugia and Florence is known for its Renaissance frescoes. Children will love playing in the ruined Roman amphitheatre and day trips to Poppi Zoo, where they meet the rare European Lynx among other animals. Surrounded by countryside and hilltop villages in true Tuscan style, leisurely lunches and divine wine are the order of the day.
