Poggio Bello, Farneta - Cortona - Arezzo

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

Villa Poggio Bello is a red-brick, country cottage set in well-tended grounds near Arezzo. Stay here and you will be treated to wide open views of the rolling fields and cypress-studded hills that surround the property, spied through its windows, from the terracotta-tiled terrace that wraps around the villa, and the jasmine-draped pergola that provides a second space for outdoor relaxation. Or drink in the scene from a sun lounger by your private pool. Inside, the villa is cosy with all the comforts of home, decorated in traditional style, with pleasing florals and antique furnishings enhancing the citrus-coloured walls, terracotta floors and wooden-beamed ceilings. The original fireplace in the lounge is a handsome feature, a place to come together on cooler evenings. The two bedrooms offer space for up to four people – so this villa is well suited for a small family or two couples holidaying together.

There are lots of Tuscan villages and towns to amble around within a short drive of your villa, with a grocery shop in Farnetta the place to pick up fresh produce so you can try your hand at rustling up a local dish. When you fancy venturing further afield, Poggio Bello is well located for exploring the beautiful province of Arezzo and only about an hour’s drive from historic Florence.

Our Thoughts
Cosy, comfortable and totally Tuscan, Poggio Bello offers everything you could want in a villa holiday. The pool and lawns are perfect for games or just relaxing in the sunshine, while you’ll love the homely atmosphere within the villa’s walls. Just imagine dining beneath that pergola, with its fragrant jasmine, and letting the hours slip by as you soak up some beautiful views. We also think it’s a great base from which to explore Tuscany, on the doorstep of some lovely countryside and within easy reach of the cities of Arezzo and Florence.

Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms, one en-suite. The garden is fenced but not pet secure and the pool is unfenced. The cottage lies within the grounds of a larger villa where the owners live.

The pool is located in the garden, surrounded with paving and furnished with loungers and parasols. The water is accessed by internal Roman steps. On occasion, the pool may be used by the owner and his family when guests are out. Pool Size: 12m x 6m, 1.2m deep. Open from April to October, weather depending.

Wir haben uns Ruhe gewünscht und bekommen. Es war herrlich! Der Empfang war warm und wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Das Grundstück ist idyllisch gelegen und bietet eine wunderbare Aussicht. Auch zum Spazieren sind wunderschöne Wege direkt vom Haus aus möglich.

Einzig, wenn man im Frühling die Toskana mit Hund bereist, sollte man ein starkes Mittel gegen Zecken mitnehmen. Unser Hund war übersät mit diesen Viehen. Eine echte Plage.
Local attractions Städte wie Cortona, Arezzo oder gar Florenz sind nicht weit. Ein Ausflug lohnt sich. Speziell nach Cortona! Auch sind die Restaurants dort sehr gut.
