Overview

This is the third property that the owner of Sant’Anna has restored and the result is fantastic. A huge amount of creativity and knowledge was used to transform, an abandoned farmhouse incorporating a 14th century priest house into, what has to be one our most comfortable villas. An open plan ground floor, with a fantastic kitchen flows out into the charming garden through the extensive use of glass. The interior is bathed in light; air-conditioned bedrooms on the first floor ensure that the rooms remain cool in the hot summer months. There is a breakfast area off the kitchen, a sophisticated dining room, and a shaded loggia facing the valley, overlooking the pool for dining al fresco. On the first floor, is the wonderfully furnished living room with a balcony, overlooking the breakfast area and a Bechstein grand piano. The villa is set just below a small hamlet, facing south, enjoying very pretty views of the unspoilt countryside, just minutes from the walled village of Monterchi, where the famous “Madonna del Parto” al fresco by Piero Della Francesca resides.

Clients reviews

We really enjoyed this villa. It was in a beautiful position and very well equipped with absolutely everything one needs. We were met by the owners who were English and were extremely helpful. The description of the property was quite good, however it did exceed expectations. D Francis 2012

Beautiful setting, owner nearby and accessible but absolutely respectful of privacy- couldn't have been better! Cleaner was very thorough, pleasant and discrete. Tuscany Now very helpful about finding us a property with a piano- great liaison.

Many thanks to Carole we had such a beautiful and relaxing week in Casa Sant'Anna. A quiet, calm place with stunning views and a beautiful swimming pool. What more do you want in life? Many thanks to the cook also who spoiled us with a delicious meal. We hope to return back.

Thank you Carole for such a wonderful week of self indulgence. This is so much more than a rental villa! Our best evenings were "at home" catered for and looked after immaculately by your wonderful cook. Thank you so much for everything we would love to return.

As I sit overlooking the exquisite Umbrian countryside, it is hard to imagine a more beautiful house or location to spend 7 days. We came for the small rustic villages, we relaxed in the sun and the gentle breeze. We ate some of the finest foods on the planet and we talked and laughed around the table late into the night. The perfect Italian getaway: spending quality time with family, often not possible back home. Our days were spent exploring and photographing postcard villages such as Monte Santa Maria Tiberina.. Some of our most enjoyable nights were spent watching the sun disappear behind the hills as we ate outside at The Pieve Vecchia, Monterchi. Finally, thank you to Carole for being such a generous host, opening her house brimming with culture and beauty to us. We hope to be back soon.

What an exquisite house, so lovingly created, from the beautiful bedrooms to the spacious kitchen, the library of interesting books and the piano which we played rather badly. Blessed with hot weather we spent a lot of time in and by the pool, just gazing at those views and enjoying the tranquillity. On other days we visited those extraordinary hilltop towns, with a remote way of life so different from our own as city dwellers.
