La Padronale (manor house) is a very pretty old renovated farmhouse set into the side of the most beautiful small valley in Italy. Nestled in unspoilt surrounds with nature all around (a nightingale serenades every evening) - there's an array of flowers with butterflies flitting over them, a small wood to wander through, olive tress and grape vines and terraces to sit on.

About the neighbourhood
The Upper Tiber Valley (called to because of the river Tiber that flows from here down to Rome) is a part of Italy of exceptional beauty. The wild life is phenomenal and the hill towns are quite extraordinay, transporting you back to Medieval times. You have the sea on each coast two hours away and Lake Trasimeno an hour away approx, Florence is 1 1/2 hrs away from Arezzo exit on A1, Arezzo is almost as fantastic as Florence yes not visited nearly as much. A high light in the summer are the festivals of food which each village holds...I could go on and on....
