Situated in the saddle between two peaks Casa al Vento has some of the most spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. Located just over 20km from Arezzo - the town where Piero della Francesca and Petrarca worked -  it has breathtaking views over the olive groves and hills that make up the landscape of the Arezzo area.    
There is a large pool that is nestled in the large gardens of the villa that include not only manicured gardens but also woodland and olive groves. From the pool there is an unbeatable view over the valley below. Pool towels are provided.

The house was originally built at the beginning of the 19th century. It has been recently restored to an extremely high standard with great care taken to make it comfortable and attractive. The furnishings in the house have been selected to meet a high standard and create a luxuriously-relaxed atmosphere.



The ground floor is beautifully done with a large lounge where there is a fireplace for those cooler evenings. There is also a bathroom that has a shower.


From the kitchen and lounge you exit on to a wonderful terrace that overlooks the valley below giving you an incredible view that you can absorb while enjoying an outdoor meal. There is a second terrace that is to the rear of the house which also has a wonderful view.

On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and access to a terrace that overlooks the valleys to the back of the house. From the windows of all 3 bedrooms there is the stunningly deep view of the valley to the front of the house. One of the bedrooms can be made into a twin on request when booking, if you do not request this the house will have 4 double rooms.


On the ground floor there is a bedroom with a king size bed and en-suite bathroom that has a shower. On this floor there is also a lounge with access to the garden and a laundry room.



From the bedroom and lounge there are fantastic views across the valley below. From the lounge there are doors that lead onto a furnished terrace. 


All aspects of the house have been created with the utmost attention to detail. In so doing Casa al Vento is a marvelous getaway that not only has stunning views but also provides luxuriously extravagant comfort.



Casa al Vento has splendid views of the surrounding countryside.
 


The large terrace is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the landscape around you.


The pool is exclusively for use of the guests.
A gardener comes daily to look after the garden and pool.
A friendly cat lives in the garden of the property but does not enter the house.

Pros Das Ferienhaus hat eine wunderbare Lage mit einer Aussicht die gigantisch ist! Der Weg nach oben ueber einen Schotterweg war zwar herausfordend, jedoch zu meistern.
Der erste Eindruck hat uns alle begeistert: Die Sauberkeit, die Groesse und natuerlich der wunderschoene gepflegte Garten.
Die Ausstattung hatte alles, was das Herz begehrt.
Wir hatten die Woche nur in diesem Haus verbracht. Die Ruhe die dort
oben herrscht, wollten wir die Woche ueber geniessen.
Wir werden dieses Haus weiterempfehlen und bestimmt bald selbst wieder kommen!
Es war ein wunderschoener Urlaub!

Pros Très belle villa avec grandes chambres, superbe piscine, terrasse très agréable. Vue magnifique.
Cons Le chemin d'arrivée à la villa long et difficilement praticable avec une voiture classique. Beaucoup d'insectes et en particulier les guêpes autour de la piscine (nous avons même tué un scorpion). Matériel électro ménager vieillissant et ne fonctionnant pas très bien.

Pros tout: situation, charme de la villa, confort, accueil, simplification des formalités d'arrivée et de départ, piscine etc....
Cons piste caillouteuse rendant l'accès à la villa difficile pour certains véhicules. Un 4X4 serait le modèle le plus adapté....
Local attractions journées touristiques à Florence, Sienne et journée avec guide au sud de Sienne, San Giminiano, Arezzo repas du soir à la villa.

Pros Stunning location and beautiful setting. Great looking villa.
Cons Not much. Previous guests comment that the access road is so steep you need a four wheel drive. While this is not so, any ordinary car will get up to the villa, it is very rough and quite a distance from paved roads. I can see why inexperienced drivers would be uncomfortable.
Local attractions We loved both the restaurants in the village. A trip to Pienza is a must.

Pros Het is een prachtige locatie, mooi huis, op zich allemaal prima voor elkaar, potentie om echt een top-huis te zijn/worden
Cons Te duur voor wat je er voor krijgt. Was niet perfect schoon, apparatuur werkte niet naar behoren (vaatwasser viel telkens uit, gasfornuis pitten werkten niet), sleutel-dame spreekt totaal geen engels, borg 500 euro meegeven zonder bewijsje (nee dus), bed hoofdslaapkamer veel te hard / slecht comfort, muggenhorren werkten beperkt. Kortom: de 3.000 euro niet waard vergeleken met wat je hier elders voor krijgt. Beveel wel aan, mits deze zaken worden verbeterd. we zijn beschikbaar voor toelichting indien gewenst.

What were the highlights of your stay?    The peace and tranquillity and overall enjoyment of area/countryside/country
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    accommodation was excellent, well appointed, spacious and comfortable
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? The track to the house is desperate and whilst we were prepared for a 3km unmade track we did not know that it would be a 45º one (min)The vars struggled to make it there and a 4x4 is a must.We hired a Citroen Picasso and a Lancia and with 3 persons and 2 persons respectively took several millimetres off the tyres.Thankfully it didn't rain whilst we were there or we might not have made it to the house !!The views are fantastic but getting there problematical and should be flagged to prospective tenants
The washing machine did not work and the gas must have run out on the last day as we had cold showers the morning we left but Maria was going to investigate

Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Only complimentary

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die Stadt Cortona, die Erstbesichtigung der Villa, das Restaurant Berbacco mit ausgezeichnetem Essen zu tollen Preisen, die entspannte Athmosphäre am Pool und im Haus.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Die Anlage ist unglaublich schön und bietet ausreichend Platz, die Lage des Hauses entsprach unseren Vorstellungen und wir haben uns wirklich sehr wohl gfühlt. Familien können hier einen tollen entspannten Urlaub verbringen. Ein kleiner Kritikpunkt den ich leider erwähnen muss, betrifft die Sauberkeit des Hauses, die nicht ganz unseren Wünschen entsprach (Spinnweben auf der Treppe, Haare im Bad, man merkte, dass einfach nicht gründlich geputzt worden war.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nein
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Informationen über nahegelegene Supermärkte, Outlets usw.
