Entire home
You’ll have the apartment to yourself.
A sunny flat in a renovated medieval house near the main square. At 330m asl, 50km from Florence, 10 from the A1 highway. Shops, outdoor market, clean river, woods, museum, concerts in a church rebuilt under Charlemagne, restaurants, tourist office.

The space
The flat gives a great experience of living in a Tuscan village, just 20m from the main square. The town itself is unique, above the humidity of the valley, but well below snow. In the summer it's dry and quite breezy towards dusk. There is ample free parking, and the driving time to trains in the valley is 15 minutes and to various cities 30 (Arezzo), 45 (Florence), 60 (Siena, Cortona), 90 (Orvieto, Pisa, Perugia) minutes. Our hills, in the province of Arezzo, are known as the Colline del Chianti Aretino - less famous, less touristed, the wine is DOCG Chianti.

Guest access
The private door is on the floor directly above mine. I can give you your keys when you ring my bell or I can meet you at your car and show you the way. Via Ricasoli has no traffic, so GPS doesn't include it, but there is free parking areas nearby on via Gruissan (misnamed Via Genova on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps), Via Roma and Piazza Garibaldi. You can, however, stop temporarily to unload at the bottom of via Ricasoli, and webcam pictures of Loro show this spot between Piazza Matteotti and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, facing the clock tower, on your left. It will be on your right as you go down V. Emanuele towards the main piazza.

Location

Loro Ciuffenna, Arezzo, Italy

The mountain has many marked trails and one can reach many hamlets, as well as the 1600m high peak . Loro has the only museum of contemporary art in the Valdarno, a modern auditorium, and the famous Romanesque Pieve di Gropina, a national monument. Small shops have everything, but larger ones are quite near. Bread is particularly good here because our water is so good, and one can swim and fish trout in the Ciuffenna river.

I'm a Canadian harpsichordist living in the medieval village center since 1981, right below my guest flat, and almost always on hand. I also direct a summer String Quartet Festival, now in its 21st season, held in Loro's Romanesque church, the Pieve di Gropina, a beautiful national monument (8th-12th century). The apartment is first of all for family and friends, but the "grape-vine" [ps this zone is Chianti delle Colline Aretine] has given me the pleasure of meeting people from afar and introducing them to Loro and the Valdarno [valley of the Arno river].

During your stay
Guests can ask me questions and I can usually help them with both little or big problems (phoning in Italian, contacting a doctor or pharmacist, recovering something left on a bus, explaining why speed limits aren't posted, etc.).
