Welcome to our house!

Antecchia is a rustic and ancient house, which strengths relies on its beauty, silence and harmony with nature, in line with the typical Italian rural life.

Breath-taking landscapes will accompany you during your stay, invigorating you with intense fragrances from the Tuscany land. During the day you will listen to cicadas whipping and birds singing, while lake frogs will begin their unique concert during the sunset. You will be fortunate enough to meet fireflies, which came back to testify the restoration of lost environmental balances, attained through our biological agricultural techniques.

This house belonged to my father, artist, violinist and painter. You will feel his presence everywhere.
His discs are in the living room, you can listen to them with vinyl recorders. They are vinyl! Please use them carefully as they can be easily scratched.
There are also several books, many in French and German, as Antecchia is a magical place for reading. In the corridor behind the old kitchen on the 1st floor, on a metal shelf, there is the collection of all the numbers of the Corriere della Sera, Italian main newspaper, from 1910 to 1954. They belonged to my grandfather, which collected them during all his life.

Practical Information:

The TV in the living room is connected to a small PC that you can turn on by pressing the button 1 in the remote control, then the SOURCE button and finally by choosing the HDMI-1 key from the menu that opens. Windows will open and, using ONLY Internet Explorer (it does not work with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Chrome) you can connect to the web, watch Netflix or listen to Spotify. There is also a link to the artistic and cultural activities of Arezzo and its Province. In the old kitchen there is a large satellite TV and you can watch the news in English and German, as well as access to many satellite channels.

Please respect the rules of the house: Kindly note that it is forbidden to smoke inside the house, but you can do it on the terrace or in the garden using the ashtrays. Please also respect the pool’s rules as the law is very strict and fines can be heavy.

If you want to eat really exquisite barbecue meat you have to walk to the restaurant “la Capannaccia”. For wine I recommend two cellars: the “Palazzo” in Tregozzano-Antria and the Farmhouse of San Fabiano just before Arezzo. The most furnished supermarket is the Coop, situated in Viale Giovanni Amendola, 13-15, Arezzo(Tel. +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)).

I wish you a very pleasant stay,

Andrea de Santis

A fabulous place to discover Tuscany. It seems to us to have the life of castle during one week. The big swimming pool was very pleasant. The location is very convenient to visit Florence, Sienne ...

This house exceeded our expectations. Tr view is absolutely wonderful with a gorgeous pool and garden, where we spent most of our time. The house itself is very spacious and beautifully rustic. It is important to note that there are a quite a few stair cases therefore some rooms could be difficult to access for some. The house was secluded and a car is essential to visit the tuscany villages. Arezzo the closest town has a substantial train station and grocery stores, everything you need!
