The Experience

Standing on a high ridge with sweeping views of the Tuscan and Umbrian hills and the village of Monterchi, this traditional Tuscan farmhouse is a gem. There’s room for the whole family across three floors of beautifully furnished living spaces, cosy nooks and crannies, and three comfortable bedrooms each with en-suite and air conditioning. There is also an adjoining apartment with a king size bed, plus a double sofa-bed in the living area, so the whole house can sleep up to 10.

It’s the outside space that will seduce you; leap into the infinity pool and swim amongst the hills or luxuriate in the hot tub spa, dry off under a pergola of sweet scented jasmine and take in the glorious framed views of Monterchi. Explore terraced gardens full of wisteria, lavender and rose arches; crisscrossing footpaths lead the way to secret shady spots.

Whip up al fresco meals in the summer kitchen (there’s a pizza oven too) and eat under the stars – having the pool house to hand is a huge boon for big outdoor dining. Stunning medieval Monterchi and Piero della Francesca’s famous artwork is just a three kilometre walk away.

What a wonderful place! Very aptly named by the hosts as "Angolo de Paradiso". We stayed for a glorious week at the end of August and thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular views, the wonderful welcome of Janette and Danny and the relaxing pool area. There is such a lot to do in the area too, including beautiful Monterchi only a couple of kilometres away, home to the Madonna del Parto by Piera della Francesca. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

My wife and 2 young kids spent a glorious week in this classic Tuscan location, straight out of a postcard. Our rooms were v comfortable with en-suite (change of pillow was offered to me - nice!), with a well-equipped and spacious kitchen and dining area, numerous verandas for more alfresco eating, breathtaking views and, to top it all, a gorgeous swimming pool. The owners were on hand when my daughter screamed (gecko in her bath) and also to guide us on a couple of days out (Sienna & Cortona). They even arranged for an authentic pizza-oven lunch. We will be back - it's just too nice not to.

The neighbourhood

This area of Tuscany bordering on Umbria is unique for being off the beaten tourist track and is a region of gentle hills, dotted with stone farm houses, cypresses, olive groves and vineyards. The nearest little town is Monterchi, 3 km away, where you’ll find shops, restaurants and a museum containing the Madonna del Parto by Piero della Francesca – a painting people trek from all over the world to view.
