Villa il Sole, Civitella in Val di Chiana - Arezzo and Cortona

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 to 9 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

With its imposing and dramatic hilltop position, close to the town of Arezzo, Villa il Sole has a fairy-tale quality about it. Perched, overlooking a valley, this large stone-built villa is a good choice for a large multigenerational group of family or friends. The interior is restful and easy on the eye: terracotta-tiled floors and wooden ceiling beams abound and the ground floor is dominated by a dramatic fireplace in a lounge that will doubtless be the centre of social activity among your guests. Other features include striking internal arches and an exquisite split-level staircase. The bedroom with four-poster bed is probably the pick of the four generously sized and airy bedrooms.

There are a number of terraces positioned around the property, each offering a different view on your surroundings and perfect for al-fresco dining, or pre-dinner sundowner. From here - and from the private pool on a lower terrace - you can drink in superb views of the Tuscan countryside with the town of Civitella in Val di Chiana sitting among the folds of the hillside opposite.

Our thoughts
For its location and views, this really is a villa of the imagination. You will love the internal style and beautiful grounds. Inside, antique furniture and pastel hues give the property character and there is space aplenty for a large family gathering. Undoubtedly, you will be drawn outside to take in the dramatic views. The Mediterranean garden is delightfully landscaped and filled with shrubs and leafy, mature trees that provide shade, while raised beds of geraniums at the front of the house add a splash of colour.

The nearest town Civitella in Val Di Chiana is only 4km from the villa. Here you will find a grocery store, supermarket, pharmacy and a bank. There is also a small selection of restaurants. The town was once fortified with walls and towers; the remains of one of the towers has had some restoration work done to it. Places of interest are the church of Santa Maria, the Rocca and the Palazzo Pretorio. The second week in September is when the Feast of Grape, Olive Oil and Wine, is held, and there is plenty of opportunity to try the local products.
