The chestnut barn....was, in part, built in the mid 1800s and used to dry the harvested chestnuts before making flour. The two bedroomed barn which can accommodate up to four guests, has been renovated to a high standard and still retains many of its original features and charm. The barn is tastefully decorated and furnished throughout and is equipped with modern appliances. It is home to the owners during the winter months hence the 'home from home' feel. Secluded but not isolated, the nearest village is only 1km away at the end of a bumpy white communal road.
It is the perfect retreat for those that love walking, cycling, photography, and exploring the various hilltop towns and magnificent abbeys and churches that lie within easy reach. Alternatively the chestnut barn is the ideal place to escape and immerse yourself amongst the stunning scenery and vast array of wildlife.
The town of Arezzo which is famous for its jewellery production and monthly Antiques Market is one of the wealthiest cities in Tuscany and here you will find the rail link to Florence, Pisa, Rome and the rest of Italy.
There is a wide range of fantastic restaurants offering typically Tuscan dishes made with local seasonal produce including Truffles and Porcini mushrooms, all within 10/15 minutes drive from the Chestnut Barn.
The Barn is dog friendly and has an enclosed garden so you do not need to worry about your four legged friend exploring without you.
Smoking or vaping are not permitted inside the barn.
Catering is available at the barn for an additional charge.
f interested please contact Michelle for the menu options.


What just a few of our regular guests think...

"Yes, we are back again for our tenth consecutive year! Why? The setting, the tranquility, the warm welcome and of course the pool. However we also love to visit the local towns and to see the developments that take place over each year inside and outside the barn. Well done both, we look forward to returning next year". J&KL

"We have stayed in many villas in Tuscany and Umbria over many years. This one is the best by a country mile!" D.P

"Thank you both for sharing this paradise with us" R.M

"We have enjoyed a most wonderful week, relaxing, sunbathing and recharging our batteries in this idyllic part of Italy. We have loved every moment even a stormy afternoon which allowed for a DVD watching session. Your home and the beautiful surroundings have surpassed our high expectations. Thank you for your extremely warm welcome and your recommendations on restaurants and places to see etc. It has made it a truly special holiday for us. Thank you it has been wonderful!" RF & CF

"My wife and I have just have just returned from a week at A Chestnut Barn. We booked it to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and my 60th Birthday, so glad we did, it was perfection. The place is stunning, peaceful, the most wonderful hosts I have ever experienced, nothing too much trouble. We had a meal cooked by Michelle for our anniversary, it was a wonderful experience. Michelle even went out of her way to find my favourite Gin and Tonic.  Keep up the great work, thank you for making us feel so welcome at your beautiful home. We will be back." T&JN
