Our holiday farmhouse lies in a valley full of history and artistic treasures.
The Valtiberina includes the towns of Sansepolcro, Anghiari, Caprese Michelangelo and Pieve Santo Stefano and is the birthplace of world famous artist such as Michelangelo Buonarroti, Piero della Francesca, Luca Pacioli and Giovanni Papini.
The hills and woods of the Valtiberina have been the background for many wonderful works of arts, like “The Resurrection”, “The Madonna del Parto”, and “The Battle of Anghiari”. They have also been described in renowned literary works, such as Caesar’s “De Bello Civili” and “Little Flowers” by Saint Francis.

- Lake Trasimeno
- Castiglion Fiorentino
