Ancient stone villa situated in a panoramic position between Arezzo and Florence, in the Casentino Valley. The small village of Borgo alla Collina is less than 1 km away and can be reached on foot with a short walk.
Once you arrive at Podere Varlunga, in this small but splendid corner of the valley, you can see the whole Casentino, the ancient valley formed by the river Arno and bordered by the rugged buttresses of Pratomagno and Alpe di Catenaia.
From here in a short time you can visit all the most important historical centers of the valley, the imposing castles built to defend the territory, or the places dear to Christianity such as the Abbey of Vallombrosa, the Hermitage of Camaldoli, the Sanctuary of La Verna. All places that with their medieval atmosphere, will allow you to spend memorable days lost in the past. Similarly, the villa is equidistant from two of the most important centers of Tuscany, Florence and Arezzo (50 km). In Borgo alla Collina you will find all the basic necessities, bread, meat, fruit and vegetables.
Podere Varlunga has a large green area completely fenced, a panoramic swimming pool (size m. 10x5 - depth m. 1,20-1,50) also fenced, table tennis and swing, and will therefore be your ideal destination on holiday with children.
The villa is well furnished and equipped, but with no doubt the covered porch furnished with typical wooden and wrought iron furniture and placed in front of the swimming pool, which is fully illuminated at night, is the preferred space for our guests, who on summer evenings here enjoy the coolness of the valley together with a good Tuscan dinner and a bottle of wine.
For nature lovers, it is impossible to miss an excursion to discover the natural wonders of the Casentino Forest Park.
