Description

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 - open from 11 May to 28 September), 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.  And if you are traveling with four-legged friends, no problem, because the garden is completely fenced.

    A place full of charm and warmth,

    A place full of charm and warmth, this is Casa Caldesi in Arezzo. In an extremely well-kept environment, both inside and outside, you can relax and leave everyday life behind. The owners regularly provided us with fresh vegetables from their own garden and delicious homemade desserts. We felt completely comfortable and welcome here and the people there have a permanent place in our hearts. Thank you for everything and we will be very happy to come back!

    We were very satisfied

    We were very satisfied with our villa, Casa Caldesi, and the services offered! The house is high up on the hills, and thus, it is very peaceful and quiet. A car is needed to get up on the winding road towards the house, but once you get there, you are rewarded with beautiful scenery, a big pool and a lovely house! The property is surrounded with a garden, olive trees and other garden produce. The owners brought us lots to eat from the garden, it was wonderful! They never disturbed us and were very polite. We communicated with a translator since they only spoke Italian, however, their daughter was available for help in English. There are two separate apartments which suited us well since we had adult children with us. I loved having my cappucino watching the view on the terrace. Before the arrival we were greeted by Francesca well in advance. She gave us precise instructions and was super friendly. She even went shopping for us due to our late arrival. The owners have taken very good care of their property. The booking process was easy and we easily got replies to all our emails. We loved it and are planning to go again some day!

    Delicious!

    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!

    Simply paradise on Earth!

    This summer vacation was the fifth time we have visited this wonderful place in Tuscany. The Buoncompagni family have created a fantastic summerhouse with plenty of coziness and Tuscan atmosphere, and everything is so well kept, from the house, to the swimming pool and the beautiful wine yards and kitchen garden. Every time we have been visiting this place we have been so well greeted and it feels like visiting good old friends! Fresh vegetables from the garden is offered every day and we have even been so lucky to be invited for dinner with the family – enjoying a fantastic local Tuscan Wild boar stew and the local wine from the property - all prepared by this wonderful host family. The local area offers beautiful nature and we have spent many hours on foot and biking in and around the local hills. It is simply a small piece of paradise on Earth – and we can safely and warmly recommend it for a fantastic vacation!

    einen wunderschönen Urlaub

    Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in diesem Ferienhaus. Alles war sehr sauber. Die Vermieter sind freundlich und hilfsbereit und es gab regelmäßig frisches Gemüse aus dem Garten. Der Pool ist sehr gepflegt. Die Ruhe und der Ausblick rund ums Ferienhaus machen Erholung perfekt.

    Ein schöner Platz

    Ein schöner Platz um Ruhe und Entspannung zu finden. Alles was man zum Kochen und Backen braucht ist vorhanden. Die Gastgeber sind sehr gastfreundlich und immer erreichbar, wir wurden mit selbstbezogenem Gemüse und Wein verwöhnt. Der Pool ist großartig und wir konnten ihn trotz der frühen Jahreszeit nutzen. Auch das WLAN war perfekt..wir würden wiederkommen

    Alles gut

    Wir waren nun schon das vierte Mal in Casa Caldesi und haben uns wieder sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Vermieter freundlich . Was wir uns wünschen würden wäre das der Pool beheizt wird.
