overview
villa layout
In the heart of Tuscany, just a few kilometres from Arezzo, up in the hills in a splendid natural setting, lies Villa Sara, a wonderful old country residence. The villa is the result of the careful architectural restoration of a 17th century building, where particular attention was paid to the use of traditional materials during the renovation (wooden beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and stone walls) and to the search for comfort and convenience in a particularly welcoming atmosphere. It stands at the centre of an estate of 80 hectacres of woodland, with paths and waterfalls, and is surrounded by centuries-old trees: it is an ideal place for enjoying the absolute peace and quiet that only the most untouched places can offer. The house is on two floors: on the ground floor is a comfortable living area, with direct access to the garden and to the nice panoramic terrace with a gazebo for dining outside, and easy chairs for reading and relaxing: furthermore it overlooks the splendid swimming-pool (16 x 8m), lying on a level below the house, an oasis of tranquillity, immersed in the leafy panorama that surrounds the entire property, with green hills covered with woods as far as the eye can see. On the first floor are the bedrooms, all of them very comfortable (en suite bathrooms, satellite television, minibar, hair-dryer, internet connection and telephone) and all of them have been elegantly furnished like the rest of the house, with antique objects and local craftwork, precious materials and warm colours, all selected with taste by the owners, who live in the house next door. They are kind and helpful and have succeeded in creating a quality environment which is at the same time comfortable, warm, and with a family atmosphere: on request they will prepare breakfast, arrange for lunches and dinners with local produce or pizza evenings baked in the wood-burning oven in the garden, they can do the shopping, or organize tours in the wonderful towns of Tuscany with their rich cultural offerings, all of them easily reached from Villa Sara (Arezzo with the frescoes by Piero della Francesca, Cortona, Siena, Sansepolcro, Florence etc.). The house is open all year round, and is also an ideal place for organising banquets and receptions for celebrating anniversaries and other special occasions in an unforgettable environment.

Testimonials
"What a wonderful experience we had at Villa Sara! Not only was the view amazing, but also the family next door! They went above and beyond for us! The first night there, we were welcomed with a cake and champagne for our honeymoon! Since I mentioned we were starving and grateful we would eat that for dinner, they then went and made us spaghetti!
The rest of the meals that were ordered and planned for the week, were 5 courses and were the best Italian food we had ever eaten! There was a thunderstorm the night we ordered pizza in their outdoor oven. We called and said we could reschedule due to weather. They would not hear of it, so we all ended up under the roof of the area laughing and having fun.
Cappuccinos and expressos were made for us in the attached bar whenever we wanted. We were told anytime we needed anything, just step out, and yell "Nicola" and he would come do and help whatever he could. Fires were made in the two fireplaces since it was a little chilly some days. On the days the sun was shining, we would eat outside. One day out by the pool, he comes out with two courses we hadn't ordered. He stated they had the extra food so we should eat it, no charge!
We could keep writing, but there are too many stories to tell! The family adds such a value to the villa! Privacy is given, but when asked, they serve you fabulous food with such warmth and kindness! There are many beautiful villas with views in Tuscany, but the family is priceless to have there at Villa Sara!
We hope more people get to experience the happiness we had there!
Thanks,
Amy and Scott"
