Having stayed many times in this type of accommodation in Italy, I have to say that it doesn't get much better than Agriturismo Casentino. Our apartment for two couples had a huge common area with kitchenette, two bedrooms , two bathrooms and a balcony with views over the valley. The proprietors Guido and Elida see to your every need including itinerary planning and meal preparation--they really take care of their guests.
The setting is stunning. The property is nestled on a hillside with mountains above that are are part of the Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi. Indeed, we spotted a cinghiale (wild boar) less than 200 meters from our front door. Though we loved hiking the well marked trails of the park, we equally enjoyed the proximity of nearby villages, religious sanctuaries and the not to be missed fantastic city of Arezzo. This part of Tuscany is neglected by most tourists for some inexplicable reason but it won't be long before the secret is out for this is a truly fascinating region.
And the best part (along with the pool which we used every day): Incredible value for the money. Highly recommended.
