A very old small stone hamlet set in a panoramic position a few km from the city of Arezzo. Endowed with an infinity pool with wide views. Restaurant and small shops only 2,5 km away. Ideal for groups of friends and families.
Usciano is an ancient village of medieval origin, located a few kilometres from the city of Arezzo. It is located on a panoramic position, perched on a high hill, surrounded by olive groves and green woods of oak and holm-oak. The stone farmhouse and its two small houses date back to 1851, when the small village was inhabited by woodcutters, farmers and chestnut growers, the atmosphere alone will immediately take you back to those times.
The hamlet has been restored preserving its original features and using ancient materials such as terracotta, stone and old wooden beams. Even the furniture, functional and comfortable, has been chosen in respect of rural traditions.
Borgo di Usciano can be reached by an unpaved road through the woods of about 1.5 km, which is well maintained and suitable for all types of vehicles.
Only 2.5 km away is the village of Palazzo del Pero where you will find a couple of restaurants and some shops.
Only 9 km away is the city of Arezzo and its monuments, shops for shopping enthusiasts, supermarkets, restaurants and all kinds of services. But we also recommend that you spend wonderful days discovering the old town centre, its narrow streets and the works of art by Piero della Francesca, Cimabue and Vasari, scattered throughout the city.
The outdoor area of Borgo di Usciano is divided into various panoramic terraces, and you'll be spoilt for choice whether to relax in the solarium by the beautiful infinity pool (size 7x14 m, depth 1-1.60 m), in the shade of a cool tree in the lower part of the garden, or climb the hill with a 360° panorama and a good book to keep you company.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the paved area with a stone barbecue and wood-burning oven, and equipped with tables and chairs, where you can enjoy pizza and barbecue with your family or friends. To make your holiday even richer and more enjoyable, you can request tastings of typical Tuscan products, massages with experts in the field and guided mountain bike tours of the area. Edoardo, the owner, will be happy to help you.

Paradise in Tuscany
A family holiday to Tuscany for my 50th birthday, we needed to sleep around 20 but wanted something that felt comfortable - Borgo D’Usciano was perfect. We were met by the owner, Eduardo who was the perfect host. Having chosen our rooms we enjoyed the pool and the enormous pasta dish that had been prepared for us which meant we didn’t have to go shopping immediately. There were breakfast items too - perfect. We visited nearby towns and villages by car or cycling, Eduardo came everyday and gave information on the location and places to visit. Sadly the week had to end and we had an early start, no problem Eduardo was there to check everything and say ciao. There isn’t a bad thing to say about Borgo D’Uscisno and we will definitely return.
