Stone villa situated in a panoramic position between Arezzo and Firenze, in the Casentino Valley. The small village of Borgo alla Collina is within walking distance less than 1 km away. Suitable for families with children or for couples of friends.
Once you arrive at Podere Varlunga, set in a small but splendid corner of the valley, you will dominate the whole of the Casentino, the ancient valley formed by the river Arno and bordered by the rugged foothills of Pratomagno and the Alpe di Catenaia.
From here, in a short time, you can decide whether to visit the most important historical centres of the valley, the imposing castles built to defend the territory, or the evocative places dear to Christianity such as the Abbey of Vallombrosa, the Hermitage of Camaldoli and the Sanctuary of La Verna. Places immersed in remote atmospheres that will allow you to spend memorable days discovering the past.
At the same time, the villa is equidistant from two of the most important centres in Tuscany, Florence and Arezzo (50 km). The small village of Borgo alla Collina is less than 1 km away and can be reached by a short walk.
The villa has a large, completely fenced green area, a private panoramic swimming pool (size m. 10x5 -depth m. 1,20-1,50) which is also fenced, table tennis and a swing. Podere Varlunga is your ideal destination if you’re on holiday with your children.
The villa is well furnished and equipped, but without a doubt the covered porch with typical wooden and wrought iron furniture is the favourite space of our guests. On summer evenings, with the pool fully lit up at night, it is certainly here that you can enjoy the coolness of the valley, a good Tuscan dinner and a bottle of wine.
For nature lovers and for the enjoyment of your children, it is impossible to miss an excursion to discover the natural wonders of the Casentino Forest Park.

We have visited this beautiful place in September ‘22, the area is lovely, house beautifully arranged in a Tuscan style, swimming pool is very clean and comfortable.
The property is big and calm, you feel like there’s nobody else in the world, but at the same time it’s a five minute walk to a nearby shop.
Nearby you will find also a very nice village - Poppi with a beautiful castel and nice cafeterias/restaurants. 30 min drive there is a beautiful winery Castel de Nipozzano where you can have a tour around and degustation.
I do truly recommend this place if you really want to rest.

Ottimo servizio da parte dell'agenzia e dei proprietari di casa - atmosfera personale e familiare. La casa vacanze prenotata era confortevole, pulita e con attrezzature di alta qualità.
Sehr guter Service von der Agentur und den Hausbesitzern - persönliches und familiäres Gefühl. Das gebuchte Ferienhaus war komfortabel, sauber und mit gehobener Ausstattung.
Wonderful house, beautiful and really big garden area and a perfect swimming pool. Very friendly owners who provided good advices for activities. We spend one week in the house and really enjoyed it. It is perfect for two families as 2 bedrooms and a bathroom are on first floor and the other two bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor, so that everyone has its private area. Also staying there with a dog was easy, as there is lots of space in the garden and everything ist surrounded with a fence. We will definetly book that house again.
Everything was ok, place is clean and really nice.
Ein sehr schönes Haus, mit landesüblichen Möbeln ausgestattet. Für einen Familienurlaub mit Hund wunderbar geeignet, denn das Grundstück ist rundum eingezäunt. Der Pool ist schön groß und toll am Hang gelegen, deshalb hat man von dort einen super Ausblick. Es sind sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Wir kommen schon mehrere Jahre hierher, und freuen uns schon wieder auf den nächsten Urlaub.
Wie bereits mehrere Jahre haben wir auch dieses Jahr unseren Sommerurlaub im Podere Varlunga verbracht. Auch wenn es diesmal ein etwas anderer Urlaub war, bedingt durch Covid 19, haben wir uns hier wieder sehr wohl gefühlt. Der schöne große Pool mit dem grandiosen Ausblick lädt zum entspannen ein. Die Besitzer sind super freundliche, nette Menschen. Das Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt und der Pool wird täglich gereinigt. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden was man für einen schönen Urlaub benötigt. Auch unser kleiner Hund fühlt sich hier sehr wohl, da das Grundstück komplett eingezäunt ist. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
