This beautiful corner of eastern Tuscany overlooking the wide Tiber valley was fought over by powerful city-states and gave birth to painters such... as Michelangelo and Piero della Francesca in the glory days of the early Renaissance. While nothing quite as tumultuous happens these days at Borgo Anghiari, time spent at this serene farm estate may well make for a wonderful family holiday. For starters, the vistas are glorious and the five apartments in a hill-top structure that encompasses a large 18th century country house and its former oil mill, share views of the vast olive groves, vineyards and secular forests that surround it. Once ventured off the 35 hectare estate, wandering the streets of the nearby medieval walled town of Anghiari is a treat, for its artisans and antiquarians have made it famous and their work, as well as the bright checkered tablecloths that denote a place to stop and sample the locale cuisine, will easily fill the day with pleasurable "slow living". Also close at hand are the cultural beauties of Sansepolcro and Arezzo, towns immortalized by Piero della Francesca, and many opportunities for those who don't mind a bit of activity: canoeing, fishing, horseback riding; in or along the Tiber. This is an area that easily adapts itself to your level of energy, and surely one that guarantees a holiday well spent.
