Pietra e Mattoni, Terranuova Bracciolini - Arezzo

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Pietra e Mattoni is a well-appointed villa in the forested hills of eastern Tuscany, overlooking the Valdarno valley. Sleeping eight in four double bedrooms, this spacious, grand restoration is ideal for larger groups of family or friends wanting to unwind in style. Interiors blend classic rural Tuscan architecture of exposed stone walls and high beamed ceilings with more glamorous touches, such as chandeliers, white ‘shabby chic’ furniture and lots of billowy fabric. The high life continues outside, with a private infinity pool overlooking vineyards – a reminder you’re in Chianti country. Here, also, is a furnished pergola in which to seek shades and plenty of sun beds to soak up the sun. A ground floor loggia offers further indoor-outdoor living.

Perhaps the villa’s opulent style nods to the nearest town of San Giustino Valdarno, the ancient roots of which date back to the Roman era. The fact that it’s a short drive away makes it handy for stocking up at the supermarket, or sampling the bars and restaurants. Many Chianti-producing wineries are also on your doorstep.

Our Thoughts
We love this good-looking villa for its sociable layout encouraging guests to spend time with each other although it is best suited to adults or families with older children due to the pool’s larger deep end. The communal cottage used for wine tastings and catered meals is a good place to meet guests staying at the neighbouring villa on the estate.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms, all en-suite. The owners have a dog and two cats, with access to the gardens. A neighbouring villa is divided by a hedge from Pietre e Mattoni, but does not share the pool. The owner lives in a third villa on the property. The property is not fully fenced.
Parking - 3 unsheltered parking spaces.

Pool
Set in a raised garden area, a few steps below the first floor, the L-shaped infinity pool is accessed by stone steps with a wooden railing. These lead to a pretty stone sun deck with sun beds and armchairs. The pool has a large deep section and a smaller shallow area, the water is accessed via the shallow part of the pool.
Pool size: 4m x 10m, 1.5m deep. Shallow part is 5m x 2m, 0.6m deep. Open May to October, weather permitting.

This beautiful villa set in the middle of a vineyard, exceeded all of my expectations.
The rustic charm, and spacious upper rooms led for a truly relaxing holiday. The pool was very well used by us all.
Having the owner and his family on site was a delight as we got to know them without any unease at all.
Simona, who looks after the guests is an absolute angel, and everyone fell in love with her.
I will definitely be back!!!!
Local attractions Being in the heart of Tuscany was the biggest attraction of all. The proximity of not only small villages with their own history, but also the ease to get to explore larger towns such as Arezzo, and drive to San Gimignano is an added bonus. We did eat mostly at the villa as it was so relaxing, however we did have fun at a local bar/pub/restaurant The Seven Bridges, which was just up the road.
