Typical stone farmhouse with private pool and garden situated in a hilly position a few km from the city of Arezzo. Ideal for those who look for a relaxing holiday in contact with nature in the company of family, friends and pets.
Ca' de Tonco is an old, stone farmhouse which takes us back to the most ancient Tuscan peasant origins. Situated on a high hill, among woods, pastures and cultivated fields a few km from the city of Arezzo, is the ideal place for those who wish to escape the stress and noise of city life. The house is reached via a scenic, unmade road through the woods (about 4 km long), with rather steep parts, well maintained, but not suitable for sports cars.
At about 10 km Arezzo offers more than everything: restaurants, shopping stores, supermarkets and important works of art, paintings of Piero della Francesca, masterpieces by Giorgio Vasari as the Loggia of the Piazza Grande, where every year takes place the 'Giostra del Saracino', ancient knights tournament in medieval costumes, churches and museums.
Ca' de Tonco offers a completely fenced 900 m2 garden ( with a 1,60 m high fence), making it perfect for a holiday with your four-legged friends, who can run free and safe on the property. On the side of the house a beautiful private swimming pool (also fenced, size m. 4x8, depth 1,40 m. - open from 24 April to 2nd October), placed on an extremely panoramic terrace equipped with gazebo, table and chairs for outdoor meals, barbecue and wood burning oven. You can also spend fun afternoons playing table tennis or relaxing in a hammock reading a good book. The rustic but comfortable furnishing fits in perfectly with the characteristics of the property.

The farmhouse was clean and comfortable and in an amazing location. The best view for swimming! The dirt track to get to and from the farmhouse is steep and its worthwhile buying food before you get there! Great walks and plenty of wildlife to spot. An amazing place to spend 2 weeks. Nearby Arezzo, is a lovely town too!
We had a wonderful stay at Ca De Tonco. The Villa is situated in a remote location up in the Tuscan hills.
The drive to the Villa along the steep and windy gravel track takes a bit of getting used to, but the rewards are considerable, as you find yourself truly secluded without any disturbances once you arrive at Ca De Tonco. I grew to enjoy the drive and there are some stunning views of the valley as you reach the higher ground along the path.
The views from the Villa need to be experienced to be believed. They are both breathtaking and peaceful. The Villa itself has everything you need to enjoy yourself, with a pool, table tennis table, hammock and BBQ available. The size of the Villa was perfect for a family of 4 like ours. Our host Giulia was helpful and friendly and the provision of coal and firefighters for the BBQ was a nice touch.
Florence is around 1 hour 20 minutes away, so were able to enjoy a day out there as a family (we recommend parking at Villa Costanza and getting the tram into Florence). Arezzo is also highly recommended and around 30 minutes drive from the Villa. The higher parts of Arezzo have gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape, and there was a buzzing atmosphere in the town square when we visited on a Friday evening.
There are plenty of supermarkets in the nearby area, including the gigantic Co op. The local ingredients are fantastic, with the watermelon and lemons delicious in August when we visited.
We had an amazing holiday and we would definitely stay again at Ca De Tonco.
Ca De Tonco is a perfekt place to relax. The place is very beautiful, around the house with the wood and it`s so quiet that you can listen to wild. The house inside looks like an old fashion farmhouse and its sooo clean. The owner of this Casa are very nice and courteous with the tourists. We was very happy to stand there for one week and we recommend it everytime.
Sehr sehr schönes Haus, wer Ruhe braucht und die Natur geniessen will, ist das das richtige. Mit 20 Minuten erreicht man die Stadt Arezzo und sonnst schöne Orten. Die weg beschreiben muss besser beschrieben werden. Sonnst TOP!
Das Haus ist wunderschön, sehr abgeschieden gelegen, das Grundstück ist für Ferien mit Hund großartig geeignet und der Pool super gepflegt. Die Vermieter sind ebenfalls sehr sehr nett. Wir waren zum zweiten Mal dort und haben die Abgeschiedenheit und die Natur wieder sehr genossen. Es gibt dort alle möglichen Tiere zu bewundern, nachts fliegen z.B. Glühwürmchen durch den Garten und rund um das Haus leben die schönsten Eidechsen. Der Anfahrtsweg ist, wie bereits beschrieben, ein wenig abenteuerlich, aber mit normalen Autos (keine Sportwagen) zu bewältigen. Arezzo ist nicht allzu weit, eine tolle Stadt und auf jeden Fall einen Ausflug wert. Wir haben dort für eine Woche im voraus eingekauft, weil wir unsere Zeit vor Ort genießen wollten. Durch das WLAN kann man auch problemlos im Internet surfen, wenn man das will.
A nice place to come and relax (if you want with your dog). The hosts are very polite and obliging. We will definitely come again.
