Tuscan Villa – B&B – Arezzo

On a secluded hilltop with top privacy and phenomenal views all around, less than 10 km from the city of Arezzo.

The oldest part of this former farm house dates from the year 1000 and was built in 1200 to its current form.

Ten years ago, the current owners started renovating this typical Tuscan building and reclassified it to live in and started a B&B.

The owners’ living area are completed and several other room studios as well. The rest of the rooms have yet to be finished.

The property serves excellently to realize a fantastic villa with lots of privacy and an excellent location to be able to relax and enjoy the view. You can also live there and create different units for rent or a B&B activity.

The untouched nature is plentiful. An excellent environment for hiking, mountain biking, running, etc.

The living area is 470 sqm on three levels and there is an outbuilding of about 30 sqm on two floors.

The total land area included is about 46 hectares, of which about 30 forest land, 13 hectares of  shrubs, meadows and an olive grove of about 3 hectares.

Around the house there is about 3 hectares of garden, part of which is fenced.

It is possible to start your own organic farm at this location, or undergo restructuring for different housing units.

It’s possible to realize a swimming pool in the vicinity of the villa.

The villa has not been permanently inhabited for several years, but it is used as a holiday home for the owners and family members.

It is possible to inhabit the renovated owner’s part or outbuilding, however the rest needs finishing on an aesthetic level, plus organizing the part that has not yet been finished, according to your own wishes.

The water to the house come from a well, through a cistern of 5000 liters,  it comes from a natural spring that came back clean and potable after testing at the lab.

There is currently no GPL-tank (GAS). The house is heated with the stoves and fireplaces. All the pipes for a future connection from the house to the GPL tanks have been placed.

There is an IMHOFF septic tank in place. Must be finished by adding a depurator.

All the inhabitants in the area use 4G, but it is possible to reequest a satellite dish for better connection.

There is a long beautiful gravel road of about 4,5 km nicely maintained by the towns’ municipality, almost until the property. The last 200 meters belong to the property, which you’ll need to take care of yourself.

The property was restored 10 years ago, the walls, foundation, roof, plumbing and all implants ready, are all compliant in terms of anti-seismic rules etc. However, some of it needs extra attention.

Additional & regional information

AREZZO:

Not everyone knows that Arezzo is an ancient city, older than Alexandria in Egypt! To discover Arezzo you need to have a smattering of understanding about its past. Arezzo was one of the main Etruscan city-states. Later in life it became a Roman city of strategic importance, a nerve center of vibrant commerce, a place brimming with monuments such as the Amphitheater, whose remains can still be seen today. Back in those days Arezzo’s foundries were well known, as too were the city’s artistic workshops of “coralline” pots, which were painted red and whose decorative technique extended throughout the Roman world.

Arezzo can be considered one of the world capitals of gold with about 1,100 companies dedicated to this precious craft. The most expert goldsmiths of this town started creating sacred works manifactured in the 14th and 15th centuries, although this tradition have even more ancient origins. Every year you can visit the international jewelry exhibition called Oro Arezzo, featuring the best golden creations made in Italy.

Ancient traditions continue to thrive. One way to experience them is to visit on the second-to-last Saturday in June or on the first Sunday in September when Piazza Grande becomes the stage for the Giostra del Saracino, a chivalric tournament dating back to the Middle Ages.

Alternatively, check out Arezzo on the first weekend of the month when the Antiques Fair comes to town in the same central piazza. A dazzling market of ever-surprising items and objects, arm yourself with patience and curiosity – and don’t forget to practice the fine art of negotiation: bartering is second nature for the city’s market holders, so hold your corner!
