Description from manager

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Ca Maggiore is the result of the recent renovation and enhancement of an authentic 17th century Leopoldine villa, preserving the original structure with square dovecote turret and portico surmounted by typical loggia on the first floor. In the beautiful and spacious rooms coexist elements of traditional architecture salvaged from the old structure, elegant and functional furnishings, handcrafted accessories and details and a splendid modern, fully-equipped kitchen. The property, with a wonderful view over the surrounding hilly countryside and vineyards and just 800 metres from the lively borgo of Castiglion Fibocchi, is ideal for those who enjoy walking as the restaurants, bars and supermarket are all just a few minutes away. Located in the upper Valdarno, in a hilly area of great natural relevance just outside the Chianti zone, it will prove to be the ideal base for visiting the lovely Park of the Foreste Casentinesi, the Pratomagno, the area of the balze (crags) and the many artistic spots in the area, like the towns of Siena, Florence and Arezzo, this latter just 15 km away. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.

About the area

Thanks to its geographical position in the heart of Tuscany, Ca Maggiore is the perfect location and an ideal departure point for exploring the most important historical and cultural centres of the region. It is located just 800 m from the borgo of Castiglion Fibocchi, where shops, supermarkets and restaurants can be found, as well as a riding school. The presence of a bus stop in the village also makes it easy to travel to the town of Arezzo. We are in the area of the Valdarno, a hilly region located between the towns of Florence and Arezzo, crossed by the River Arno and bounded on the northeast by the massif of Pratomagno and on the southwest by the territory of Chianti. The Valdarno is characterized by the great variety of landscapes that you meet while crossing it and, above all, by the presence of the so-called balze (crags), rock erosions that were formed following the drying up of a large lake that covered the Arno valley, which many believe were portrayed in the backgrounds of the paintings of the great Leonardo da Vinci. A short distance from the property, along the Via Setteponti, the old road between Arezzo and Vallombrosa, are numerous CAI (Club Alpino Italiano = Italian Alpine Club) paths that allow you to explore on foot or by mountain bike the whole area of the balze, dotted with numerous rural buildings and Romanesque churches that testify to the presence of human settlements since the times of the Romans and the Etruscans, thanks to the fertile land and the wealth of fauna that has always characterized the area. Well served by both the A1 motorway (exit Arezzo for those coming from Rome, exit Valdarno for those coming from Florence) and the railway line that connects Arezzo (the station is 15 km away) with Rome and Florence, the property is thus an excellent departure point for visiting the principal art cities of Tuscany, like Arezzo (15 km), Siena (60 km) and Florence (67 km) as well as the area of the best known red wines in the world: Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti Classico, respectively just an hour and a half-hour drive away.
