The villa is in Casa Colonica style, built on several levels, with a tiled roof and features dating back to the 14th century, exposed wood beams give the interior a warm and friendly atmosphere. 6 comfortable bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 living rooms can accommodate up to 12 people.

The villa sits in a secluded setting, reached by a private road through farm fields and woods but only 2km from local shops. Monterchi is 7km away where one can see Piero della Francesca's 'Madonna del Parto'. The charming walled cities of Sansepolcro, Anghiari and Città Di Castello, with full facilities and numerous restaurants, are only 10 - 15 mins away.

Blessed by its beautiful location, this is a wonderful base for walking ,relaxation and sightseeing.

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Casa Vecchia. The villa was really lovely and the girls enjoyed the pool more than we could have imagined!
