Farmhouse divided into two independent apartments, with private pool and Wi-Fi access. Panoramic and quiet, ideal for two couples of friends and for nature lovers. Situated about 8 km from Castiglion Fiorentino and 20 km from the city of Arezzo.
Casa Caldesi is a farmhouse between Val di Chio and Valdichiana, just 8 km from the town of Castiglion Fiorentino endowed with shops and services of all kinds. In its picturesque medieval streets surrounded by ancient buildings, trattorias and typical Tuscan restaurants you will taste the most famous dishes of the country cuisine and good local wine.
The house is situated on the top of the Foce pass, in the tiny village of Caldesi, from where you can enjoy an incredible view of the Val di Chio, which with its green wooded hills connects the Valdichiana to the Valtiberina and the border with Umbria. From here you will be able to make easy day trips to Umbria, Lake Trasimeno, Arezzo, Sansepolcro.
The renovated old farmhouse comprises on the ground floor some rooms occasionally used by the owners and the two guest apartments on the upper floor. An external stone staircase leads to a private sun terrace furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco. From the terrace you will find both the access to the flats and, by climbing a few steps, to the beautiful swimming pool (size m. 10x5, depth m. 1-1,40), private and equipped with sun beds and umbrellas. It is on the terrace that you will spend your days at the farmhouse. In the sun or under the umbrellas, in the cool of the morning or in the breeze of the summer evenings. For your dinners with your friends there is also a barbecue and an oven with a typical wood-burning stove. Parking is available within the property.
The farmhouse, in our opinion, is perfect for two couples as it is divided into two independent flats that have been designed to guarantee privacy even during a holiday with friends.
The furnishings are simple and comfortable, with some valuable pieces of local antiques, a family inheritance that Francesca, the owner, has carefully restored with respect for tradition.
Going up a stone, external staircase you can reach the wide terrace-solarium where you find the entrance to the house which is divided into two independent units. The first unit with entrance on living-dining room with kitchen corner, bathroom with shower, two double bedrooms both with access to a panoramic balcony. The second unit with entrance on living-dining room with kitchen corner, bathroom with shower, double bedroom with access to the panoramic balcony.

Sehr ruhig, schön angelegt, freundlich und sehr erholsam
Selbstverpflegung, ein Haus für uns alleine mit eigenem privaten Pool. Die Hausleute waren sehr nett, haben aber nicht dort gelebt. Verständigung nur italienisch, oder über die Tochter in Englisch. Sehr ruhige Lage, sehr erholsam. Die Strecke zum Haus führt über einen 2 km langen Schotterweg.
We were welcomed by Francesca, the daughter of the owners. A very kind woman. Lovely to be welcomed after a long drive! The cottages were super clean. Everything you need is there. The house is divided into two separate 'apartments' which are rented out simultaneously to the same tenants (i.e. two kitchens and two bathrooms only for their own use). Good to know if you have small children, for example, because the two 'apartments' are not interconnected. The pool is top notch: large and very well maintained. The owners come to their adjoining vegetable garden every day, but that doesn't bother me at all. They are very discreet and very friendly people. They gave us daily fresh vegetables from their garden and some home brewed bottles of wine! The cottage is wonderfully quiet. Some houses in the area form the hamlet of Caldesi. So, a lot of privacy. The house is located on a pebble track about two km away from the main track. Road is not steep and easily driveable, even with an ordinary family car. Nearby (15 minutes by car) is a beautiful village (Castiglion Fiorentino) where we ate delicious pizza. Other beautiful villages 30 minutes away.
If you like peace, privacy, clean cottage and lovely pool, don't hesitate and book!
