Visited the villa as a party of ten friends. What a wonderful holiday we had, we couldn't of asked for more. The villa is beautiful. The bedrooms are comfortable, with plenty of bathrooms or en suites. The open plan living areas worked so well with plenty of space for everyone. The large kitchen had everything we needed and we even used the external pizza oven and The Chapel is adorable. You need transport as it is in the middle nowhere with the most amazing views. We went early in the year so the pool although heated was still very cold but we all used it so not that bad. Ben the caretaker/manager was very helpful and gave us lots of ideas. There is plenty of info in the villa and suggestions of restaurants etc. Ben organised a chef for us for three evenings at a very reasonable price and it was superb. Restaurant standard cooking and she provided prosecco and plentiful nibbles before the 3 or 4 courses we had booked, so very good value. I can only think off one tiny tiny niggle. There is WiFi but you have to find the right places to sit around the house to find it, which you do easily and why not switch off the phone and the laptop and just sit and look at the wonderful panama a with a glass of chilled wine.
If anyone is looking for a great place in beautiful Tuscany. Look no further, you have found it.
Recently returned from a glorious relaxing week staying at Calcina with friends and family. The house is perfectly decorated with charm. Variety of places to sit comfortably inside, beds of good quality, clean and well presented. The kitchen is well equipped. There is good internet connection. Outside is glorious with amazing views. The infinity pool is just perfect. We had very long and fun filled lunches - even took to making our own pizzas buying local ingredients and authenticated it with using the amazing outside pizza oven! Great fun!
There was plenty of choice of restaurants both in nearby Sansepolcro and Anghiari.
Calcina achieves both quality and rural charm. We are looking forward to returning next year.
