Overview

Nestled on a working farm in the rolling hills outside of Arezzo, Podere Chiara offers a peaceful retreat and is a great base for excursions throughout Tuscany.

Arezzo, only five kilometers (3 miles) away, is a charming town distinguished by its dramatically sloping medieval square, the Piazza Grande, and one of Tuscany's most famous fresco cycles — Piero della Francesco's Legend of the Holy Cross, found in the church of San Francesco.

Arezzo is home to one of Italy's leading antique fairs, which takes place on the first Sunday of every month. From Arezzo, visitors can easily explore one of Tuscany's hidden realms, the Casentino.

The Casentino, a huge mountain-ringed basin, encompasses one of Tuscany's wildest primeval forests, the Foresti Casentinesi, and is home to many charming villages, including Caprese Michelangelo, birthplace of the legendary artist. Drives along the upland roads offer some wonderful views. Siena and Florence are easily reached from Arezzo (about 60 kilometers to the southwest and northwest, respectively).

Podere Chiara is a lovely two-story Tuscan farmhouse dating from the 15th century. Its spacious interiors have been furnished and decorated in fine taste.
