This lovely spacious villa has two floors with four bedrooms and is very comfortably furnished.

Pros We zijn met 3 gezinnen ( 6 volwassenen en 3 kinderen < 4 jaar ) verbleven in villa Sturchi. De villa was zeer groot en comfortabel en iedereen kon genieten van zijn eigen privacy. De villa is gelegen op een heuvel omgeven door olijfbomen. Het zwembad ligt wat verderop achter de olijfbomen; wat voor ons toch wel een pluspunt was vanwege de kleine kinderen. We hebben er een heerlijke vakantie gehad... gewoon te kort!
Cons Een klein minpuntje was dat de BBQ achter het huis lag. De persoon die aan het bakken was , kon minder genieten van de sfeer aan tafel.
Local attractions We hebben Sienna , Civitella en San Gimignano bezocht. Deze waren de moeite waard om te bezichtigen. We hadden tijd te kort om nog andere steden te bezichtigen.

Pros We were made to feel at home by the owners as soon as we arrived and this continued throughout our stay with the friendly attention of the grounds keeper Balthazar. The large villa has been restored and decorated to a high standard and is located in a beautiful part of Tuscany, relatively close to Arezzo, Florence and Siena. We made full use of the swimming pool and tennis court which are a 100m stroll from the villa through the olive trees. There are many books, written in a number of languages, throughout the house for those that run out of reading material.
Cons Nothing really, previous occupants have spoken of the road that climbs to the villa, It's not easy but nothing that a competent driver would find too difficult. We also found the mattresses to be comfortable provided you used two pillows to rest your head on, We were troubled by large flies at the pool during the first week but they disappeared after a small drop in temperature.
Local attractions The countryside is the main attraction, our favourite visits were to the smaller hill towns namely, Cortona, Montepulciano and San Gimignano where we easily found good restaurants. Siena, Pisa and Florence had to be done but ,even in October, were full of organised tourist parties and much more expensive, especially Florence.

Pros The villa is beautifully decorated throughout. It is very spacious and cool. The kitchen amazingly well equipped. The views are stunning. Balthazar the caretaker is an absolute gem, looked after us wonderfully well. Paola, the owner is lovely, very helpful and was great when we had a bit of a crisis following an accident my Mother had. The pool is really big and looked after really well, it afforded a number of excellent games of three a side volleyball, once we had cunningly constructed a net out of string and cut up plastic coke bottles!
Cons The pool is quite a long way from the house, which wasn't implicit in the online description. We were sadly there in high wasp season (second half of August), which was a bit of a drag as it was difficult to eat outside during the day. Having said that they were very docile wasps and we only had one minor sting. The private road which is 1.5km was quite difficult to get up, an adventure we decided! We had a lot of problems with the Wi-Fi which we gathered is a bit patchy at best but was actually not working at all for a large portion of our two week stay.
Local attractions We found that we really had to travel some distance every time we went out. Arezzo is beautiful once you get to the centre. Siena of course stunning! Montalcino a real gem. We had a fairly hilarious day at Crocodile Park, a rather run down water park not too far away.

Pros - ruhig gelegen, man braucht keine Rücksicht auf andere Gäste nehmen bzw. wird durch keine anderen Gäste in irgendeiner Form beeinträchtigt
- Vermieter + Hausmeister auf dem Gelände und somit für Fragen/Anliegen leicht zu erreichen
Cons - Die 1,5km Auffahrt zum Haus ist wirklich "challenging"! Vorsicht: Sportwagen bzw. tiefergelegte Fahrzeuge haben hier ernsthafte Schwierigkeiten, ohne Schäden den Berg hochzukommen!
Local attractions Florenz ist nur eine 1h entfernt. Vorsicht: Je nach Reisezeit ist diese bekanntermaßen sehr schöne Stadt aufgrund von chinesichen Reisegruppen vollkommen überlaufen! Für einen kleinen Ausflug bzw. einen Spaziergang vor einem abendlichen Restaurantbesuch sind Arezzo und Civitella an Val di Chiana sehr zu empfehlen!

Pros Het is een prachtig ruim huis. De villa is omringd door een olijfboomgaard, de voorzieningen zijn goed en de terrassen bij het huis liggen heerlijk in de schaduw. Onze groep bestond uit 3 volwassen en 3 kinderen in de leeftijd van 12 tot 16. We hebben ons uitstekend vermaakt bij het royale zwembad en op de tennisbaan!
De care taker is een bijzonder vriendelijke man die altijd voor je klaarstaat en prima Engels spreekt. Hij zorgt daarbij dat hij de privacy van de gasten in acht neemt.
Het huis ligt op een heuvel, de 'dirtroad' er naar toe is een challenge!
Ons verblijf van een week is ons zeer goed bevallen, uitstapjes naar Arezzo en Siena hebben wij in de zeer vroege ochtend gemaakt ivm de hoge temperaturen.
Cons geen tegenvallers, ofschoon de weg naar de villa wel even slikken was.....
Local attractions In het nabijgelen Civitella - dat op zichzelf al de moeite van een bezoekje waard is - vindt u bij binnenkomst een heerlijk terras van een uitstekend restaurant! Verder vonden wij het authentieke Arezzo zeer de moeite waard. Siena was naar ons idee te toeristisch....

Pros The villa was beautiful and full of authentic character. Paola, the owner and host was highly accommodating and friendly. She spoke perfect English and was helpful with tips about the surrounding area. Baldesar, her groundskeeper, was quick with the firewood and any other special request. He was especially kind with our children and helped to make their visit extra fun. We visited in October and were very fortunate to have the pool guaranteed open for us. This was great as the weather was in the 20s during the day and our children spent much time in the water. The villa is set in a secluded olive grove, high upon the hill. Views all around were marvelous! To sit on our veranda eating breakfast under sunny blue skies was the favorite part of our day. We purchased the home-grown olive oil produced at Casa Sturchi and have been enjoying it ever since. The fireplace was a cozy retreat in the evenings where we sat with the children playing games and relaxing after a long day. The house really had every convenience, we had more space than we ever would need. We were a family of 4 for most of the week but for 2 days, invited another family to join us. The house is perfect for 8 guests.
Cons I understand that the beds are quite nice by Italian standards, since firm is the most frequent request. However, I found most of the beds too hard for a comfortable rest. I am American and fond of pillow-top or memory foam mattresses. These were beds that were almost as hard as the floor. We did find one upstairs bed which suited our needs well enough. And found it nice that Paola offered us extra bed linens in order to soften the mattress further. We didn't expect the road to be in such poor condition. We found it an adventure to climb the hill in our sport sedan each day. My understanding is that it is in much better condition than most private roads, still quite a surprise. It requires an adventurous and fearless driver but can be fun! The rewards of achieving it are well worth it.
Local attractions Within 1 hour we drove to the Chianti region to view its rolling hills and wineries. A trip to Montepluciano was a highlight as well as the hilltop village of Cortona.
