Treggiaia 223

San Giovanni Valdarno, south of Florence

Private villa for 4 with a pool, A/C and tennis court

Midway between the historic cities of Florence and Arezzo and sitting on a promontory in the Val d'Arno, Treggiaia is a clever conversion of a classic Tuscan barn that now provides comfortable accommodation for a small family or couples. With a swimming pool directly in front of the house, a tennis court to one side and air-con in the bedrooms, this house has all the ingredients for a relaxing holiday. The train station at the bottom of the hill gives easy access to the famous historic art centres of Tuscany, like Florence and Arezzo.

Nice little touches

  • Having the pool so close to the house makes for very relaxing days
  • Easy access to the train station makes this a perfect base for exploring by train

Good to know

  • The pool is shared with the owners - though they very rarely use it

Accommodation

A private drive to the side of the house leads to an independent guest entrance to the property and a few steps past the covered furnished gazebo bring one to the arched glass door facing the pool. Entrance is into the main room which occupies the entire ground floor and includes a living area with a sofa and sofa bed in front of a fireplace, a long trestle dining table for 10 and a brightly tiled corner kitchen located behind a low dividing wall near the living area. A spiral staircase tucked in the corner of the main room leads up to a small sitting area with wicker chairs and table overlooking the pool, off of which are a shower room with twin sinks, a twin bedroom and a double bedroom, both of which are air-conditioned. Furnishings throughout the house are of a comfortable country rustic style and large chestnut beams overhead and tile or parquet flooring underfoot speak to the owners' sensitive restoration.

Though the owners occasionally share the use of the pool and tennis court, these features are so convenient to the barn that they could easily become part of guests' daily routine. The pool, with easy-entry steps either side of an in-pool Jacuzzi, is set in a lawn whose shade trees and tall shrubbery ensure privacy and whose sunbeds, umbrellas and poolside sofas will invite one to linger. The tennis court is on a lower level to the side of the house and has a handy WC and shower near the guest laundry.

NB: For larger groups, the owners also have an additional apartment for 4 attached to their home. This accommodation is only available when Treggiaia guests request its use - please speak to your agent about details and prices if interested.

Around Treggiaia

Treggiaia has long views of the valleys which surround it, including those of the 'Balze' a dramatic geological formation whose colourful eroded shapes catch the eye and invites a closer visit.

A short drive to Castelfranco di Sopra or San Giovanni Valdarno provide restaurants and the necessary amenities and trains from San Giovanni can deliver one to the heart of medieval Arezzo or Renaissance Florence. There are stables nearby that will allow one to discover the surroundings slowly on horseback and shopping outlets within 1/2 hr. for those whose preferences turn to Italian styling and a good bargain. Easy motorway access allows ventures into the famed Chianti for wine-tasting or relaxing visits at the thermal spas plentiful in this region. Yet with local markets providing those ingredients that make Italian cuisine famous, a BBQ in action and light off the pool might be reason enough to linger at home.
