Villa il Sole, Civitella in Val di Chiana - Arezzo

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.

Die Villa liegt wirklich an einem wunderbaren Hang, mit viel Aussicht. Die Räumlichkeiten sind angenehm zum Verweilen und auch mit einer größeren Gruppe im Haus, findet jeder ein ruhiges Plätzchen, drinnen sowie draußen.
Der Pool ist super und die Größe genau richtig zum Schwimmen und Spielen.
Die Schlüsselhalter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Ca. zwei Mal die Woche kommt jemand vorbei um sich um Pool und den Garten zu kümmern (früh morgens, somit nicht störend).

Ein paar kleine Mankos gibt es:
Die Betten hätten alle eine neue Matratze nötig, denn diese sind sehr durchgelegen und unbequem.
Die Ausstattung der Küche mit Kochutensilien könnte aufgefrischt werden.
Eine richtige Klimaanlage ist leider nicht vorhanden, sondern nur je ein kleiner Ventilator je Schlafzimmer. Dadurch wird es sehr stickig und warm in den Schlafräumen, hauptsächlich in der oberen Etage.
Das elektronische Öffnen des Hoftores vom Haus aus ist defekt.
Local attractions Da das Haus etwas außerhalb vom Trubel liegt, ist die nächste "Attraktion" Civitella in Val di Chiana, was man vom Haus aus sehr gut sehen kann. Hier gibt es nur wenige Restaurants und auf eine gute italienische Pizza wartet man mitunter einige Stunden, was sehr schade für uns war. Das Städtchen an sich ist aber sehr schön für einen Besuch und es gibt tolles Eis!
To Tuscany team comments for this review:30.08.2019
Thank you for your review. The owner confirms they will replace the mattresses. Air Con is not listed at this villa but there are tower fans throughout. We understand the heat was extreme during your stay. The owner will check the kitchen equipment and replenish where necessary. We are so happy you enjoyed the villa and the wonderful views.
