Casa Maesta is a beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse located 5 km from the medieval town Anghiari and 14km from the Roman town Sansepolcro.
The town of Anghiari is nicely situated in the heart of the Upper Tiber Valley (Alta Valtiberina). Officially listed as “Uno dei Borghi piú belli d'Italia” (one of the most beautiful towns in Italy), the small and picturesque medieval town of Anghiari is laid-back but cultured while being lively but without suffering from hordes of tourists. It is also an excellent base for easy day-trips to the “jewels” of Tuscany and Umbria such as Florence, Siena, Perugia and Assisi, just to mention a few.
