Peace reigns – the only sounds you’ll hear are birdsong, the hum of crickets and the babbling of the Ciuffenna river that runs along the boundary of this pretty, higgledy-piggledy group of buildings.
Simple and traditional, each property is full of comfort and rural charm – there are five of them, so you can take as many or few as you need depending on your group. This quiet backwater presents a stress-free way to get to grips with ever-popular Tuscany – there’s time and space to relax and recharge, with hammocks dotted around in the shade, meadows and the river to explore and a glorious pool to cool off in.
Each apartment has a private patio so you can be just as sociable as you want. Arkadia, the charity that helps in the maintenance of this place, hosts a team of young people each weekday morning who help tend the grounds – the gardens are a credit to them.
