Casa Volpi is set in extensive grounds just outside the town of Arezzo. A lovely view of the town can be had from the terrace and outside restaurant. These grounds, covered with olive and fruit trees, offer the opportunity for a pre-breakfast walk in the cool of the morning, and in the evening the chance to return from the bustle and crowds of sightseeing to the tranquility of the gardens of a typical 19th century villa. It is an ideal jumping-off point for the hill-top towns of Pienza and Cortona, the wine towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino, and the major sights of Arezzo itself (5 minutes drive to the free parking of Pietri) Siena, and even Florence (a short train journey to the centre); the Umbrian towns of Assisi and Perugia are also easily accessed. The rooms are spacious and simply but tastefully decorated, and scrupulously clean. The outdoor restaurant serves good, typical Tuscan food at very reasonable prices, with the opportunity to sample the proprietor's excellent wine and olive oil produced on his own estate. The restaurant is lively, full of locals and the service is always impeccable. Breakfast (optional extra) is first-class, with a full range of fresh meats, cheese and fruit, as well as cereals and pastries. Service throughout is friendly.and courteous. Alessia at reception speaks excellent English and is extremely helpful.
We have stayed here several times and will certainly be returning.
