In the east of Tuscany at 900 meters the house is one of the highest in the High Tiber valley. Apart from the breathtaking views, this is a distinct advantage when the rest of the valley is sweltering in a heat wave and wishing it could lie down in a cool, darkened room.

Wildlife and wonderful walking start outside the front door while down in the valley Sansepolcro, in addition to wonderful restaurants, offers Piero della Francesca in abundance, a Signorelli crucifixion and the campest Martyred Saint picture in Italy. Just up the road from Sansepolcro, Monterchi offers La Madonna del Parto – one of Piero’s greatest frescos.  Pieve Santo Stefano – also in the valley – doesn’t count as the prettiest town in the area but people come from miles around to eat its brioche for breakfast; they are considered amongst the best in Tuscany with good reason. Across the valley is the beautiful hilltop town of Anghiari. A few miles from the house are three fabulous restaurants which can also be arrived at on foot: by the time you have hiked up and down the Alpe della Luna every single calorie will be well accounted for.
