Pitigliano

Apartment for two in old historic centre of Pitigliano (pictures of apartment up soon), in an ancient Etruscan town in the southern Tuscany. The apartment is independent on three sides, no-one above, (unusual for the town), with a private stairwell, superbly-renovated by local artisan builders, and is south facing with lots of sun. It is in a famous street Via Zuccarelli, named after the painter Francesco Zuccarelli. The apartment is close to everything, bakeries, main square, facilities, local shops, transport links etc. Parking is easy, a short walk away. From the town the ancient hot springs of Saturnia and Sorano, wine district are easily reached, close nearby - all is within short driving distance. The town perched on a rocked has superb views on all sides with a superb countryside for walking in right below the town and further out. Whether for history or nature all the hot springs this lively town is unique.

Richard and Valentina were a wonderful couple to have in my apartment while I was away on sabbatical. Communication was always clear and friendly from the first contact, payments were made without incident, and the apartment was left in an impeccable condition, complete with a kind note left on the table! All in all, they were very thoughtful, considerate and organised people who approached things with maturity and friendliness. I can't recommend them highly enough to anyone thinking of renting out their place. I'd have them back any time! Excellent Kumi 2/22/2018 4:07:00 AM
