Tuscan villa (5 rooms & 1 bath) - gardens & views. Near Florence/ Siena/ Arezzo

The "Casa Colonica" a at Il POGGIOLO is available for short term stays (4 to 29 nights), for sabbatical semesters/academic years (3 to 12 months), and at times for home exchange. There is also a second unit (3 br) on the property please see more pictures and details on our website: www.poggiolotuscany.com .

The CASA COLONICA is an independent half of an 18th-century villa, a large apartment on two floors that sleeps 4+1 (2 bedrooms + 1 bathroom + kitchen, diningroom, sittingroom, gardens with views - the owners live in the other half). It has been fully renovated and features, over and above the two spacious bedrooms and large bathroom with tub/shower, a kitchen area with modern appliances, a living/dining room with antique table and comfortable reading chairs, a sitting room with SatTV/DVD, and other amenities such as ADSL-WIFI, child gate on stairs, garden areas (with garden furniture for dining al fresco, sunbathing, evening apéritif complete with spectacular sunsets, and 180° view). Parking on premises (also with a view ... deer in evening too!).

The Casa Colonica is decorated with antiques and traditional furniture. You will find guidebooks, cookbooks, recreational reading, and games. As the home measures ca. 130 sq.mt/ 1400 sq.ft (plus an over 200 sq.mt garden) there is plenty of room to spread out. If you have more visitors than the Casa Colonica can accommodate, the other apartment on the property sleeps 5 + 1. Both accommodations can be rented simultaneously at a reduced rate for groups of friends or family reunions!

RATES vary depending on length of stay
-Sabbatical stays: €900 per month (water & wifi free, electric + heating at cost - individual meter) min. 6 months.
-Holidays/Short Lets: €225/night (utilities included) minimum stay 4 nights, discounts for longer stays - please price list on website - http://www.poggiolotuscany.com/prices/
The Casa Colonica is fully furnished and equipped; bed and bath linens provided with house.

LOCATION: Il Poggiolo is 15 min. from the Valdarno exit on the A-1 highway, and only 30 to 45 min. from Florence, Siena and Arezzo. As it is in the countryside, a car is necessary. The local train from Montevarchi reaches downtown Florence in a convenient 35 minutes (the owners commute to work). Arezzo is reachable by car or train (as are also Pisa and Bologna, Rome, Cortona and Orvieto). Siena is best reached by car. A perfect base to explore Tuscan hill towns, both in the lesser known Valdarno and in the celebrated Chianti region. Excellent quality of life in this truly Tuscan area with good local services, charming villages, gourmet food markets, excellent wines and restaurants, thermal spas, country walks and serious trekking. For families on sabbatical, school bus service at end of driveway (elementary through middle school).

No pets or smoking (inside) please - allergy controlled environment.

The owners are both academics.
