Valdarno Estate - Casa Ferruccio - Valdarno - Tuscany
3 Bedrooms – Pool
Location and Surrounding Area. Casa Ferruccio is set in a magnificent private estate situated in the Valdarno, halfway between Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The Valdarno is one of Tuscany's most beautiful regions and is as famous for its scenery as for its wine and gastronomic delights.
If you can manage to tear yourself away from the luxurious estate and private swimming pool, there is a lot to see and do in the area. The valley of the river Arno contains some of the most romantic medieval borghi (hamlets) in the whole of Italy. Within a radius of 15km of Villa Casa del Pozzo, you'll find some of Tuscany's best kept secrets. Il Borro is perched up high on a rocky outcrop and the houses and cobbled walkways have remained unchanged for centuries. It is rather an exclusive borgo and an addition to its picturesque buildings and boutique shopping, it features elegant restaurants and spa centres. Other nearby villages noted for their historical prestige and unsurpassed natural beauty include San Giovanni Valdarno, Figline Valdarno, Loro Ciuffenna, Castelfranco di Sopra, Rocca Ricciarda and Moncioni.
Florence is the capital city of Tuscany and an art-lovers paradise. It was the centre of the Italian Renaissance movement and the museums, galleries, palaces and churches house some of the world's greatest treasures. The cathedral, baptistery, Uffizi, Bargello, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and the Accademia all have to been seen and once you tire of art and history, take a relaxing wander through the pretty streets and across the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Florence is also home to designer shopping, fine wine and authentic dining experiences. Mouthwatering, thick, juicy Florentine steaks are a local speciality and best accompanied by an unforgettable Chianti wine.
For golf aficionados, the prestigious 18-hole Golf dell'Ugolino is the oldest Golf club in Italy. It even features in Chris Santella's best-selling book, “Fifty places to play golf before you die”.
Florence and Pisa international airports are respectively 50 km and 115 km from the property.
The nearest local shops and supermarkets are in Matassino, 4 km away. Florence is only a 20 minute drive and Arezzo takes about 40 minutes. The drive to Siena takes about an hour and passes through some absolutely stunning scenery. There are tennis courts 3 km from the villa, horse riding at 10 km and golf at 35 km.
