The Valdarno area is absolutely strategic: Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Rome all all within a range of 200 Km. Even the seaside (Tirrenian or Adriatic sea) is quite easy to reach through the A1 highway. The property faces the Apennines mountains, whose peak is called "Monte Pratomagno" ("The wide field mountain"). The mountain landscapes are completely different from the ones in the Alps (northern Italy): here slopes are gentle, trekking and running can be easily practiced. The weather is usually quite mild as well, not too cold in winter, neither too hot in summer.
The Arezzo - Valdarno area also offers amenities such as luxury shops and commercial centers: "Valdichiana Outlet Village", "The Mall", shops selling luxury brands.
History and architecture are of course one of the major points: Arezzo, Florence, Anghiari, Figline Valdarno, Montevarchi, Terranuova Bracciolini, the Vallombrosa and Camaldoli cloisters. Olive oil, wine and typical Tuscan food are obviously a big part of history and tradition.
Arezzo 21 Km; Florence 64 Km; Siena 62 Km; Rome 235 Km; Anghiari 39 Km; Montevarchi 18 Km; Terranuova Bracciolini 14 Km; Figline Valdarno 17 Km; Vallombrosa 43 Km; Camaldoli 44 Km.
