Il Paretaio, Moncioni - Montevarchi - Arezzo and Cortona

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Head for the hills on the edge of the Chianti to stay at this little beauty – a romantic bolthole just for two. You’ll find your own bit of paradise in this lovely two-storey cottage, tucked away in lush olive groves and mature trees, its terraced garden unfolding downwards to reveal your idyllic private pool. Where else where would you want to be on a hot, sunny day?

The Chianti market towns of Gaiole and Radda are within easy reach for day trips. Or you could set off for the local stables, saddle up and strike out into the local countryside on horseback. After a busy day’s exploring, Il Paretaio will welcome you back with open arms – dine à deux on its pretty terrace as the sun sets or, on chillier evenings, snuggle up indoors by the woodburning stove. And when it’s time to retire, you couldn’t want for a better place to rest your heads than in the bedroom’s dreamy four-poster bed. The WiFi signal is only suitable for browsing and emails (10GB weekly allowance).

Il Paretaio is a lovely little house in a beautiful garden tucked away in the Tuscan hills. The pool and outdoor areas are perfect for relaxing and taking in the beautiful views. Inside is well furnished with a very comfortable bed - not always a given in a rental property.
The garden is full of wildlife but the most wonderful things are the fireflies at night- hundreds of them flashing and dancing under the trees ( we were there early July - I’m not sure how long the season is).
The property is about 20 /25 minutes drive to the nearest town, though there are villages nearer. It’s on a ‘white road’ one of Tuscany’s famous gravel roads but it’s an easy drive if you take it steady, you certainly don’t need a 4WD, an ordinary car is fine.
The owners are lovely, Riccarda was very helpful with tips and advice when asked.
Local attractions Montevarchi / San Giovanni Valdarno are the local towns. We had a great pizza at Menchetti ( husband thinks it’s the best base he’s had) and returned for gelato at Fior Fiore. Don’t miss out on a trip into Arezzo - not as well known as Siena or San Gimignano but very beautiful and a lot more quiet.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:
Thank you for your lovely review of Il Paretaio. We’re delighted that you enjoyed the relaxing pool, comfortable furnishings, and enchanting garden wildlife, especially the fireflies. It’s wonderful to hear that Riccarda was helpful and that you found the drive manageable. We hope to welcome you back to the Tuscan hills soon.
