If you are buying a house in Tuscany, location is just as important as the property itself. Borgo le Vaglie is truly accessible, located just nine miles from Arezzo, Tuscany’s capital city, and about an hour from Florence. Tuscany’s treasures lie within easy reach, too, whether you are looking to immerse yourself in art and architecture, or you simply want to amble amongst hillsides and olive groves, villages and vineyards. Wherever you choose to explore, the friendliness of the local people will add an unforgettable warmth to the time you spend at your holiday home in Tuscany.
From your base at Borgo le Vaglie, many beautiful villages, towns and cities are easily accessible. Charming hilltop villages such as Monte San Savino or Lucignano are perfect for a gentle wander; famous cities such as Florence, Siena and Perugia are ideal for a longer day out; medieval Cortona is just a few miles away; and Pienza, Assisi and Gubbio are all within an hour’s drive of your Tuscan home at Borgo le Vaglie.
Like all of our properties in Tuscany, Borgo le Vaglie is very well-placed for sports and shopping as well as culture and countryside. Arezzo’s sports club offer a gym, tennis, football, volleyball and swimming and the nearby Golf Club Casentino offers fantastic golf with equally impressive views. We also recommend the atmospheric spa and wellness centre at the Badia di Campoleone Hotel. The hotel’s restaurant offers excellent Tuscan cuisine and, as you would expect from this region, there are numerous wonderful restaurants within easy reach.
One of the chief attractions of Borgo le Vaglie is that, whilst peaceful and rural, it is also convenient for daily practicalities such as banks, pharmacies, the post office and shops. The Valdichiana Outlet Village with its 140 prestigious shops is a popular place to spend the day, as is The Mall near Incisa for discount designer fashion.
