Private structure. In the heart of Tuscany is a small, little-known valley which few people visit but which is of great artistic and natural importance: the Valdambra which, with its wooded hills, charming old villages and precious remains of towers and castles scattered throughout the territory, lies between the ridges of the Chianti hills and the upper Valdarno, along the course of the river Ambra and cutting through the border between the provinces of Siena and Arezzo. In this picturesque setting, just a short walk from Bucine the most important town of the valley, we find Casale la Splendida, an old rural house which is the ideal place for those wanting to explore the most authentic Tuscan-ness that these charming places express and retain.

In the heart of Tuscany is a small, little-known valley which few people visit but which is of great artistic and natural importance: the Valdambra which, with its wooded hills, charming old villages and precious remains of towers and castles scattered throughout the territory, lies between the ridges of the Chianti hills and the upper Valdarno, along the course of the river Ambra and cutting through the border between the provinces of Siena and Arezzo. In this picturesque setting, just a short walk from Bucine the most important town of the valley, we find Casale la Splendida, an old rural house which is the ideal place for those wanting to explore the most authentic Tuscan-ness that these charming places express and retain. The interior of the house, brought to new life by renovation in full respect of the original plan, is particularly well-finished and elegant, with exquisite fireplaces in the living areas and refined pieces of furniture that create a warm and cosy atmosphere, full of comfort and functionality. The wide green outdoor areas, the portico with lounge area, the veranda with wood stove and dining area and the large pool all combine to make it a great destination for groups of friends and families with children who love nature and the relaxed atmosphere offered by the countryside. This destination will be ideal for exploring the beautiful area around Bucine, rich in vineyards, olive groves and woods, along which meander numerous CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) hiking or mountain biking routes. The main towns of Arezzo, Florence and Siena, as well as the prestigious areas of Chianti, of the Crete Senesi and of the Val d'Orcia with their picture postcard scenery and their old, enchanting borghi, are all within easy reach. Another attraction of the area is represented by numerous designer outlets, all a short distance from the house, including Prada (just 2 km away), The Mall and Fashion Valley. N.B. The owners live discreetly in an annex about 50 m from the house and can be a useful reference point for guests to whom, however, full privacy is guaranteed. Additional amenities: A\C in all bedrooms, American coffee machine, American fridge with ice maker, Games, baby cot, books and magazine, brick-in barbecue, hair-dryer, hand blender, hydro-massage shower in three bathrooms, hydro-massage tub in a bathroom, iron and ironing board, moka coffee machine, mosquito screens (except for the French windows in the living areas and in the kitchen), squeezer, wood ovenMore

About the neighbourhood
Casale La Splendida is located in the comune of Bucine, about ten minutes from the motorway exit and five minutes from the train station (on the Florence-Arezzo-Chiusi line). The house is well connected and easily accessible from the airports in the region (Florence, 73 km and Pisa, 134 km), and is in an excellent position to visit most of central Tuscany (the valleys of the Orcia and the Chiana, Chianti and the Crete Senesi). Located in the area of the Valdambra, at the point where the Chianti hills meet the Upper Valdarno, a few kilometres from the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, this little town has played, from Roman times to the Middle Ages, an important role as border territory in which important families of the past followed upon each other and whose traces are shown by the nu...
