The Experience

What’s lovely about this tranquil place – apart from the luxuries within – are the long dreamy views and the pool that’s your own. You have utter privacy from the main house, in a limestone hay barn with lots of garden. It’s a superb renovation, awash with space and light, true to the building’s age yet the finest of contemporary, in a lovely untouched corner of Tuscany. Enter an open-plan living area with rustic terracotta floors, deep white sofas, art, books, antiques and flowers. Off which: an immaculate kitchen, a wisteria draped terrace, and a bathroom, surely the most delicious in Italy… impeccable white fittings, vast rain heads suspended from an ancient brick arch, an olive ladder on which to sling a luxurious towel. Then it’s up the open stone stair to Busatti linens and a sumptuous bed. The newly converted garage makes for an airy overspill annexe. Sansepolcro, six miles off, is a draw for art lovers but has chic shops and restaurants too – or fire up the barbecue or the old pizza oven. The owners will also cook on request – the home-grown vegetables, raspberries and olive oil are the biggest treat.

What a wonderful stay we had! It exceeded all our expectations! Absolutely beautiful, quiet and tranquil setting but close to Sansepolcro for fantastic evenings out. Kate and Brad couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful. Such kind, generous and thoughtful hosts. They went above and beyond even organising a birthday cake and helping us sort out our flat tyre. Definitely recommend the welcome hamper and evening cooking lesson - what a treat and such good fun! The pool is fantastic and house amazing. We were so depressed to leave but will definitely return!

This well designed and cosy Barn is what you hope for. The house has everything you need and fits in a living-designers magazine: the view, the pool, the fresh vegetables out of the garden - it is al great and beautifull. And not to forgot the lovely lady of the house. We stayed with our teenage kids and they had the time of their lives. If you like to be in your family bubble, this is the place to be.

Jolanda, Oosterbeek

Le Caviere had all the ingredients for a true holiday: a stunning and secluded location, beautiful fresh air, and a blissfully comfortable bed. The Barn has been restored with immense care and attention to detail, with a fabulous shower and well-equipped kitchen, and the hosts could not have been kinder, sharing such generous hospitality and local tips. Whether you want to relax and luxuriate in glorious food, hills, and views, or admire art and history in nearby Sansepolcro, Arezzo, Anghiari and Bologna, this is a perfect place from which to switch off and sleep or set out and explore.

Le Caviere is the kind of hidden treasure I'd rather not talk too much about — precisely because I'd prefer it stayed hidden! But it's only fair to tell the world about it: this place is truly magical. The location is perfect, secluded far from the main road, with stunning views, and with all-day light. The house itself is extremely comfortable and well-stocked. There's brilliant hiking in the nearby mountains. Arezzo is only an hour away, Bologna just 90 minutes. The nearby hilltop town of Anghiari is another well-kept secret. And the owners (& their dogs) are warm, welcoming and generous.

Our stay at Le Caviere was an absolute delight. My wife and I spent five days at this spectacular Tuscany retreat. We were greeted by our gracious host and from the moment we arrived were treated like family. Our studio villa was finely appointed. The view out the ceiling to floor glass front offered a stunning panorama of fields, forest and the valley below. The pool, a short walk down the lane, was pristine and offered the same serene beauty found throughout Le Caviere ‘s perfectly manicured grounds. Fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden were scrumptious. A return visit is a certainty.

Reay, Ohio

We have had the most lovely week in Le Caviere - off the scale beautiful, completely immersed in Tuscan ruralness. It was such a luxury to have this heavenly place all to ourselves for the week. So lovely to go down to the veg garden and pick gorgeous things to eat. The hamper provided surpassed all our expectations. Our week has been filled with sunshine, wine, pasta, visits to Florence and authentic towns and truly breathtaking surroundings. Le Caviere is a very special place.

Rachel, Sherborne

We have just returned from the most restful and relaxing holiday in gorgeous rustic Tuscan countryside. The Barn is just the perfect escape.. Kate was the perfect host and could not do more to make you feel comfortable. The Barn has excellent facilities, a superb swimming pool, spotlessly clean and overlooks an incredibly scenic valley and woodlands. The nearby towns of Sansepolcro and Anghiari are typically rustic Tuscan places of interest, with very good links to wider Tuscany, ie Florence, Sienna etc all reasonably drivable in a day. Cannot recommend this lovely place enough..

Bob, Bristol

We were delighted with The Barn – it was everything we hoped it would be: secluded, peaceful and comfortable self-catering accommodation, aesthetically pleasing in every aspect! Our holiday was an indulgent mix of days out and restful days spent entirely in and around The Barn, where we swam in the outdoor pool, looking out over Tuscan hills or read and dozed in the shade of fig and walnut trees. Feeling rested and relaxed at the end of the week, we really did not want our holiday to end.

Peter, Surrey

Le Caviere is the perfect place to stay to enjoy this unspoilt part of Tuscany. The house has been beautifully interior designed with attention to every detail making for a very comfortable stay. Days spent relaxing on the terrace or enjoying the stunning views from the large swimming pool. Sansepolcro is the perfect Tuscan town and is only 15 mins away whilst Anghiari (20 mins) is one of the most beautiful hilltop towns in Italy. Highly recommended!

David, Cowfold UK

Idyllic setting, comfortable and clean cottage, most hospitable and helpful host. The town is close-by but far enough away to mandate a car and keep the retreat serene. The hilltop setting is romantic at every hour of the day, but especially sunrise and sunset. If you are fortunate enough to try Kate Middleton's cooking, you will be in for a real treat...and even luckier if she teaches you how to prepare the dish. We have visited this place in every season except winter, and its beauty and meditative spirit will keep you coming back.
