Additional Location Information

The city of Arezzo is just 2 kms away from the villa. This is a beautiful city, well worth a visit. One event certainly worth seeing in the city is the Giostra del Saraceno, held in the Piazza Grande on the penultimate Saturday in June and the first Sunday in September. The afternoon processions switch to a joust in the piazza in the evening. In late June and July the Arezzo Wave rock festival is also worth visiting, attracting some great bands and musicians.

The property is perfectly situated for exploring both Tuscany and Umbria. It's only an hours drive from the wonderful cities of Florence and Siena and only a short drive further to Perugia, the Umbrian region's largest art city. The magical city of Assisi is only an hour away as is Orvieto, a town which has always held a unique fascination for tourists. The villa is also very close to Lake Trasimeno where you can enjoy watersports such as sailing in the summer months. Lake Trasimeno is also home to the Trasimeno Blues Festival held in July each year. Every evening for approximately 2 weeks, the festival hosts the best international and national musicians of the day. For those music lovers out there, it's also worth visiting 'Umbria Jazz' a festival held in Perugia each July. (www.umbriajazz.com).

For those who enjoy shopping, the Fiera Antiquaria takes over the Piazza Grande in Arezzo on the Saturday before the first Sunday of each month. It's very hard finding a bargain here though - prices aren't cheap (although they do get cheaper as you head into the side streets). If you're more of a bargain hunter, you might want to try the choice of outlet malls instead. The nearest is the Valdichiana outlet www.valdichianaoutlet.it where shoppers can find discounts of up to 70% on designer brands. The Mall is another designer outlet with brands such as Gucci, Armani and Stella McCartney all at a fraction of their normal prices. This is just 40 minutes away in the direction of Florence. And finally there is the McArthur Glen outlet just north of Florence which is also accessible from the villa (www.mcarthurglen.it).

If you're after something more relaxing, you might want to visit one of the best known spas in Umbria which is the Terme di Fontecchio at Citta die Castello. It has a modern and relaxing wellness centre and offers various treatments and rehabilitation therapies.

Viareggio on the Western coast is a 90 minute drive away if you want to spend a day on the beach. Tuscany's biggest seaside resort, Viareggio, has an air of elegance afforded by the long avenue of palms that run the length of its promenade and is worth a visit. The seaside resorts north from Viareggio to Forte dei Marmi are certainly popular with the wealthy Florentines who like to spend their summer holidays there. Alternatively Rimini on the Eastern coast is also just 90 mins away.

If playing amid olive groves and vineyard covered hills is your idea of the perfect round of golf, then Tuscany is an ideal destination! There are two 9 hole golf courses within easy reach. The first is the Golf Club Valdichiana. The second is the Golf Club Casentino. This course is situated on a hill with a magnificent panoramic view on the Arno Valley, the green heart of Tuscany. Both courses are only a 30 minute drive and visitors are always welcome. For those with children who might want to play a round of golf, I'd recommend the Golf Club Perugia. Whilst slightly further away, it does offer guests a golf school catering for all ages from 6 upwards. (www.golfclubperugia.it)
