From the villa you can look out over the town of Arezzo, beautiful when the night lights create a fascinating play of forms and shapes, while simply relaxing in the quiet panoramic gazebo or basking under the summer sun beside the large and exclusive private pool. Located at the end of a private driveway, atop a hill, Il Vignale is a very large, modern building (700 sq m) at the complete disposal of its welcome guests who are received with great warmth by the friendly owner. A distinguished home, embellished with fine materials and finishing touches and furnished in a classic, functional style, it has two large living rooms, one of which is surrounded by glass walls facing onto the large garden, equipped with all accessories to ensure a comfortable sojurn, and elegant bedrooms, all with private bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV, telephone and mini-bar. No less beautiful is the luxuriant park that delimits it naturally and along which are to be found many set-up areas: the loggia with ping pong table, a veranda with opening glass walls and splendid hydromassage tub for relaxing in, a fitness room and tennis court for you to keep in shape, convivial areas provided with hammocks and seats and, finally, the wonderful panoramic pool: these are just some of the ingredients that will make your holiday at Il Vignale unforgettable. Just 5 minutes away from this exclusive residence is the historic town centre of Arezzo, made famous by the many artists who were born here and by the numerous works of art that have adorned and embellished it with masterpieces of eternal appeal. There are also many routes you can take from the property (just a few kilometres from the Autostrada del Sole) to explore the wonderful neighbourhood, with the stupendous natural landscapes in which magical old borghi and famous art cities are set.
