Country house sleeping 6 with private pool and Wi-Fi access. Panoramic and quiet, ideal for nature lovers. Located about 8 km from Castiglion Fiorentino and 20 from the city of Arezzo.
Old farmhouse between Val di Chio and Valdichiana, close to Castiglion Fiorentino. Casa Caldesi is placed only 8 km far from the village of Castiglion Fiorentino, industrious centre of the Chiana Valley endowed with shops and services and, in the narrow medieval lanes surrounded with ancient period buildings, with typical 'trattorie' and Tuscan restaurants where it will be pleasant to taste the most renowned dishes of village food. The house is situated on the top of the 'Passo della Foce', in the tiny hamlet of Caldesi, from where you can glimpse an incredible view on the Val di Chio which, with its green, wooded hills, connects the Valdichiana to the Valtiberina and to the border with Umbria.
Pool and terrace-solarium, apartments in respect of tradition. The old restored farmhouse hosts on the ground floor some premises sometimes used by the owners, whereas, going up a cosy, external staircase you can reach the terrace-solarium equipped with table and chairs to enjoy outdoor meals. From the terrace you can either reach the apartments, or through some steps, the beautiful private swimming pool (size m. 10x5, depth m. 1-1,40), equipped with sun umbrella and sun beds. At clients disposal also a barbecue, wood burning oven, a typical stove and a car spot inside the property. Furnishing is functional and comfortable, with some valuable, local antiques, a family inheritance that the owners have restored with care and respecting tradition.

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!
