Overview

Photos and Description of this Anghiari holiday farmhouse

Farmhouse in Anghiari, Arezzo Province,Tuscany, Italy - On Tuscan/Umbrian Border

La Ceruglia is a place of peace, comfort and beauty where it's as easy to spend time together at the house as it is to explore Italy. Nestling in soft Tuscan hills, the main house is an old farmhouse and the smaller one - known as the 'capanno', sits beside it. Within walking distance of Anghiari, and its bars, restaurants, cafes and gelaterias, the house and garden are secluded and private. You may well want to stay close to home though, once you get to La Ceruglia, making pizza in the outside brick pizza oven, while the children play in the large private pool. Or perhaps you would like nights in front of the open log fire. Excellent for all age groups from Grannies to Grandchildren. On hand a phone call away is the caretaker Giuseppe who is a fount of local knowledge.

La Ceruglia is a home that makes it easy to spend time together so to complement this, if someone in your party celebrates a birthday during your stay, we will provide you with a complimentary cake, candles, bunting, fairy lights and fresh seasonal flowers for the day. If you book for Christmas, we will have a Christmas tree and decorations up for your arrival. Stay on for New Year at La Ceruglia and we will even provide fireworks!

Anghiari itself is a stunning medieval fortified hilltop town steeped in ancient history and a Regional centre for antiques. La Ceruglia is within reach for day trips to Florence, Prato, Urbino, Gubbio, Perugia, Asissi, Montepulciano, Montalchino, Pienza, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano and Orvieto.

Guestbook comments from the owner

' We’ve just arrived back from our best holiday ever. From the moment that we first walked into La Ceruglia we fell completely in love with it. It’s so clearly a house that has such a big soul. I love the warm terracotta tiles, the uneven floors, the huge fireplace, the wooden doors, and the steps down to the garden. We made ice-cream, pizzas in the pizza oven, played hide-and-seek, and were able to simply be. Some of the other highlights included the warmth of the welcome from the caretaker, petanque up, down and across the slopes, cricket behind the capanno and star gazing from the lounges by the pool.’



'What a wonderful place to stay! It’s hard to drag yourself away from the house to go exploring. Lovely house, breathtaking views and incredible landscape, I’d love to stay here longer.’



'Three weeks, what bliss, learning about Pierro della Francesca, Tuscan hill towns, art and architecture, and great meals with a group of good friends, an experience to enrich our lives.'
