VILLA DUCESE – AREZZO AREA
Villa Ducese is a splendid example of a typical Tuscan house designed in 1700 by the architects of Grand Duke Leopoldo di Lorena, with characteristic arches superimposed on the façade. The villa is located within a renowned winery. Within a short driving distance, 10 minutes drive, we can reach Arezzo with its many shops, restaurants, Cathedral, etc., while Florence is only an hour and a half away.
On arrival day, guests will have a dinner offered by the owners and a welcome basket for next day’s breakfast. The first floor, thanks to a wooden ramp at the back of the villa, is also accessible for disabled.
The villa develops over two levels, connected via an external staircase.
On the ground floor, we have the entrance via a typical outdoor furnished loggia, a lounge with sofas and TV, large living room with dining area and kitchen. There are three double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms with shower.
On the first floor, with access from the covered external staircase which can be accessed from the porch or from the wooden bridge on the back of the villa, we find a second living room with sofas, TV and wood burning oven on the panoramic terrace and another large living room with dining area, antique fireplace and kitchen. There are two double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathroom with shower, another double bedroom that is suitable for disabled with en-suite bathroom with shower, also suitable for disabled.
The outside area offers a large and well-kept garden, with private and fenced swimming pool (12x5m; 1.4m deep; open April 28 to October 6) with panoramic views over the rolling hills and vineyards of the countryside as well as the city of Arezzo that comes to life at night. The pool is equipped with sun lounges and table and chairs with umbrella.
Right next to Villa Ducese, separated by a hedge, there is another smaller villa with private pool that can be rented separately or together. Please enquire for more info.
At 250m from the house, you can find the winery with restaurant. Here, there is a beautiful garden with comfortable outdoor furnishings that offers splendid views over the area, perfect for an al-fresco dining in the evenings. The photos of the armchairs with candles and views belong to the winery.
