Le Balze, Terranuova Bracciolini - Arezzo

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

High in the hills of eastern Tuscany, this converted barn and its grounds score strongly when it comes to comfort, seclusion and spaciousness. Its substantial private pool is the first thing you’ll see on entering the gates: it sits in the middle of a large, hedged lawn, complete with a romantic cabana to one side and Roman steps to enter the water. Le Balze itself commands a small rise above the pool, looking out over surrounding wooded hilltops. The grounds wrap around the building, including a vegetable garden and young orchard – you are welcome to produce from both. And this open-handedness extends to the interior, where bedrooms and living spaces alike are generous. The accommodation will suit families or friends – you’ll find plenty of spaces for being together or enjoying some down time, whether that’s around the pool, in the lounge, conservatory or loggia.

Arezzo, Florence and Siena are all accessible for day trips from here but don’t forget the smaller delights of, for example, Loro Ciuffenna, just up the road, and Chianti’s hilltop villages, across the Arno valley.

Our Thoughts
Whether you’re active or inactive, Le Balze (named after the curious local rock formations that fascinated Leonardo da Vinci), is likely to appeal. Its substantial pool is a real draw; the large gardens are great for energetic children or lazy adults; or jump on the villa’s mountain bikes to explore locally or play a game of ping-pong near the pool. You certainly don’t need to go far to be happy: previous guests have raved about the osteria just a few minutes away, as well as options a little further down the road. Le Balze is also a good choice for low-season visits, with its warm conservatory, lounge and welcoming kitchen-diner.

Notes
Three bedrooms. Two bathrooms. Some bicycles are available at no extra cost. Air-conditioning, if used is charged per day, please check with your agent when booking. The owner may extend the pool’s availability for late-season bookings if you ask.

Pool
The substantial pool has a diving board and ladder steps at the deep end, and Roman internal steps at the shallow end. The surrounding paved terrace has sunloungers and two large umbrellas. There is an outdoor shower and a nearby cabana on the lawn gives further shade. Pool size: 12m x 6m, 1.2m-2.5m deep. Open from May through September, weather permitting. Opening times may be extended on request, please check with your agent when booking.

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage...wir konnten uns hier gut erholen und trotzdem sind die sehenswerte Städte wie Arezzo, Florenz und Siena gut mit dem Auto erreichbar. Das Haus ist perfekt ausgestattet, es fehlt wirklich an nichts. Besonders haben uns die Außenanlagen mit Pool und Terrassen und Gemüsegarten gefallen. Der Check-In war unkompliziert und konnte mit dem Vermieter individuell erfolgen. Ganz lieben Dank an Rebeka auch für ihre Tips! Wir hoffen wir können bald wieder kommen.
