Not only will you love the exterior of this beautiful stone villa, but you will enjoy the comfortable furnishings. This is a wine producing estate, so you can expect vistas of vineyard clad hills, as well as the opportunity to purchase the wine. The location is well suited for day trips to the small towns of Poppi and Bibbiena, as well as beautiful Arezzo and Cortona. Lake Trasimento, Umbria, and Florence are also interesting day trips.
This villa is situated in the quiet hills surrounding Arezzo on a large estate that is partially farmed and cultivated with vineyards that produces a nice wine (which is available for... purchase). There is a covered terrace with a barbecue, table, and chairs. A landscaped garden features a private swimming pool (6m x 12m), open from early May to the end of September, that is surrounded by a grass lawn with sun loungers.

David's review of Large Villa with Pool Near Arezzo - Villa Sass
Left on 08/17/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | David
This was the best villa of the three we stayed in on this trip. Sandro was a great host, greeted us on arrival, saw him every day, helped us with local info and booked a horseback riding outing for two of us. Liked his homemade Rose wine. Made good use of the outdoor pizza oven and used the wood-fired grill.
Very clean and comfortable. The outdoor eating areas. Great pool. Sandro's hospitality!
Could walk into two different towns. Loved the vineyard above the pool. Did lots of day trips from this location
Kathy's review of Villa Sasso

The villa experience enhanced our vacation. It really gave us the feel of Italy and the people. The owners of the villa were wonderful. Alessandro was so pleasant and obliging, and his mother, Rosie--what a cook! She prepared four meals for us that everyone enjoyed. They even took us for a visit to their cousins' home and winery. Villa Sasso was a great place to relax after long days of touring Tuscany. Sitting on the porch or by the pool overlooking the vineyard was delightful.
The quaintness and serenity. It really felt like authentic Italy. The owners. We had four couple and everyone had their own space.
The beauty of the grounds. The swimming pool was a bonus. The area was very quiet and picturesque.

We had a great time in the villa. Everything we needed was there. Alessandro was a perfect host. Wine and a generous snack were waiting our arrival.
We were a party of 9. The villa had plenty of room. Each couple had their own room and bath. There was enough common area to allow for conversation or quiet reading. We had a pizza party with Alessandro, the chef. Very good and lots of fun
Convenient to most anywhere we wanted to go. Nice (but steep) walking area.

We had a wonderful time. The outside area was great. The pool was clean and wonderful. The villa was large and spacious.
The management was the best. Alessandro was friendly and was very charming. The family had snacks for us on arival. They went out of their way to make the trip a great experience.
We watched the family pick the grapes and make the wine from them at the villa.
The location was good for most traval to many Tuscany cities. The nearby town was great (Subbiano)
The Monday we got there we were lucky to see a yearly festival and it was so much fun. There was a big parade and free wine and dancing.

Lisa Jane's review of Villa Sasso
Left on 11/26/2011 for a stay in November 2011 | Lisa Jane
Wonderful--the location was perfect. We were secluded yet we could walk to Subbiano which had a fantastic outdoor market, a grocery store, some great restaurants and the bus and train station.
The view was breathtaking and the property was very private. What I actually liked most was this little dirt road in back of our villa. It was quite a steep hill, but we climbed it and the views at the top were unreal!!! And, we actually walked around a lot of farms where they were harvesting olives. The road actually looped back to town in a 4 mile circle. Spectacular!
We did have a dog that liked to bark in the middle of the night nearby.
We felt very comfortable walking to Subbiano and everyone in town that we ran into was very friendly and helpful.
