A delightful 5 bed detached property in a picturesque rural setting

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, Villa Mandorlo takes its name from the big and colourful almond tree in the garden. It is a beautiful and very old farmhouse. It has been completely restored in accordance with the highest principles of sustainability and respect for the landscape. It sits on a sunny hillside just a short stroll away from La Leopoldina and is part of the farm estate Podere di Pomaio. The 23 hectare estate is covered with olive groves, vineyards, woodland and produces organic olive oil, Chianti wine, honey, saffron, fruit and vegetables. The English speaking owners will make you very welcome. In the grounds you will find the "Botteghina", a small shop, where you may purchase all the organic products of the farm and there also is a restaurant in the grounds where to enjoy delicious Tuscan meals on request and wine tastings.

The house is surrounded by very well kept garden of 1000sqm from which there are commanding views to the hills across the valley and down to the town of Arezzo. In front of the house there is the beautiful 50sqm swimming pool having an original “sail shape”. Good footpaths from the grounds through the countryside are inviting for long walks. Arezzo, a lovely town with a magnificent historical centre, is under 4 miles away and there are numerous museums and churches to explore. In the modern part of the town you will find very good shopping facilities including beautiful jewellery shops - Arezzo is the home of jewellers' craft. You are also well-placed to visit Florence, Siena, Perugia and many other smaller but equally interesting towns. They are all within easy driving distance and definitely worth a visit. Less than a mile from the estate there is a picturesque small church which is still in use, and a very good restaurant.
