Cretole, Monterchi - Arezzo

6 bedrooms 6 bathrooms 12 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 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.

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. The final 1.5km of approach road is steep in places and unpaved, but in good condition.
A private chef can be booked, only on request and with owner confirmation.

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.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket.

Please note that the service cannot be guaranteed with less than 48 hours notice before arrival.​

Absolutely gorgeous villa. Very comfortable and superb views. It’s the best pace we’ve ever stayed in a Tuscany. And Rosado was brilliant - so helpful throughout the holiday. The only downside was the long drive but we got used to it and it was worth it for the lovely position.
Local attractions We loved Siena, Arezzo, Florence (go by train) and Cortona. We visited Lke Trasimeno and the wine tasting at Il Borro.
