Cretole, Monterchi - Arezzo and Cortona

6 bedrooms 6 bathrooms 12 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

This substantial yet elegant villa is a great find for any larger groups of family or friends – at full capacity, with 12 people staying, it will still feel spacious. Close to the border with Umbria, Cretole offers the chance to explore the eastern edge of Tuscany – Sansepolcro, the birthplace of Piero della Francesca, isn’t far – as well as taking a step into the neighbouring province. Set on a forested hilltop, you’re in full command here of extensive views: your neighbours are the echoing blue-green hills that frame the flood plain of the river Tiber below.

Cretole delivers a generous serving of luxury. Internally, it is very well appointed, mixing high-quality contemporary furnishings with a scattering of antique chests and cabinets, chandeliers and classical busts. There is much to please the eye. Every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom; one even has its own lounge. The second floor can act as a self-contained apartment, which may be useful for some older or younger members of the party. Everyone will come together around the substantial private pool and the loggia is sure to be a favourite for al-fresco dinners.

Our Thoughts
Cretole is a wonderful place to stay together while not being on top of each other. It is generous inside and out. The pool is large and set in open grounds beneath the villa; we love the views from its well-furnished terrace. Immediately outside the house, the loggia and side terrace have tables and chairs for everyone. Inside, there are multiple options for hanging out – choose between two lounges, two dining rooms and a study, as well as a charming entrance hall or simply perching on a stool in the gorgeous kitchen.

Notes
Six bedrooms. Six bathrooms, all en-suite. The twin room on the second floor can be made up as a double if you request when booking. The other building in the photos will be locked and unoccupied during your stay. Air conditioning and heating, if used, are charged by consumption. The garden is fenced and small pets are welcome.
A private chef can be booked, only on request and with owner confirmation.
Parking - 6 unsheltered parking space.

Pool
The chlorine-cleansed pool is deep enough for diving at one end and has ladder steps to access the shallow section. The large surrounding stone-paved terrace has sunloungers, tables and chairs, as well as umbrellas and a pergola for shade. A pool house to one side has a sink, fridge and small bathroom with a toilet and a shower.
Pool size: 6x14m, 1.5-2.2m deep. Open May through October, weather permitting. Gated Pool.

Bardzo piękne miejsce , komfortowa villa świetnie wyposażona! Czysty i pięknie położony basen. Spędziliśmy tam niezapomniane wakacje. Jeżeli ktoś ucieka od codziennego zgiełku i szuka ciszy i spokoju gorąco polecamy. Dodatkowo przemili ludzie . Pozdrowienia dla Pana ze sklepu spożywczego.
Local attractions Skorzystaliśmy zaledwie z kilku i wszystkie były godne polecenia
