Houses in Tuscany are better than its famous wine, they are not just perfect from conception and better with time, they also get more charming. Especially if one belongs to a home designer, because who else can be seduced by beauty if not someone who is looking for it in every detail?

After spending the most beautiful years of life together with his family in this miniature fairy book castle in Borgo a Giovi, a small quiet village 4 kilometers away from Arezzo, the owner feels that time has come to let it go and pass it on to new owners, an Italian family or foreigners in love with Italy willing to live in the magic land of Tuscany. 

borgo-a-giovi-arezzo-tuscany-italy-mapThe story of this beautiful 2-floor detached house begins in the 16th century and during history, it was passed on from one generation to another, being also a hospital in the year 1500.

The owner and his family, skillful home designers with long-standing international reputation, have respected with high fidelity the original features of the house and all old traditions, techniques and materials during its restoration and renovation processes: cotto and stone floorings, massive wood beams and doors, special design for the new iron doors and massive windows with double glass, preserving also the original fully functional bread oven.

With a 50 sqm footprint on the ground, the house has a cozy living surface of 160 sqm, two entrances, one from the main street and one from the private yard and a garden of 40 sqm that can also be used as a parking space or to create two independent apartments with separate entrances.

As the property plans reveal, the house has 3 bedrooms, 2 living-rooms, 2 bathrooms with showers, 2 study offices, kitchen with bread oven and a laundry room, being distributed as follows:

  • Ground floor: kitchen, large living-dining room, a study office, a bathroom with shower and a laundry area;
  • First floor: 3 bedrooms, study office, living room, bread oven, and a bathroom with shower.

The house provides all modern facilities and utilities, including central heating and it is fully equipped and ready to be lived by its new owners. Is that you?

Whether you become the new owner of this beautiful and reasonably priced design home for the purpose of seasonal residence, permanent living or doing a tourism business in Tuscany, here you will feel like home.

Tuscany is Italy’s most romanticized and visited regions, attracting nearly 50 million tourists a year lured by a life, vacation or profitable business under the Tuscan sun. With its capital in Florence (Firenze) Tuscany stands proud in the heart of Italy having an overall area of about 23,000 square kilometers and a population of about 3.8 million inhabitants.

Regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and home to many influential figures in the history of art and science, Tuscany is known for its unique landscapes, history, artistic legacy, and its influence on high culture. Having a strong linguistic and cultural identity, it is sometimes considered „a nation within a nation”.

Arezzo has a population of about 99,000 people and it is about 80 kilometers southeast of Florence at an elevation of 296 meters above sea level and 30 km west of Perugia approximately equidistant from both the Adriatic and Mediterranean coasts of the country.

The location of our home is very well connected both by train and highway to reach in less than an hour every major hotspot, from well-known icon Italian locations to seaside.

Arezzo is set on a steep hill rising from the floodplain of the River Arno. In the upper part of the town are the cathedral, the town hall and the Medici Fortress (Fortezza Medicea), from which the main streets branch off towards the lower part as far as the gates. The upper part of the town maintains its medieval appearance despite the addition of later structures. Originally in ancient times, this city was settled by the Etruscan people and archaeological findings have dated a human presence as far back as the 4th century.

Live in the city where the film La vita è bella was made, the same place that gave birth to famous residents like Michelangelo or Roberto Benigni.

In popular culture, due to its iconic look and density of cultural heritage, Arezzo played a starring role in the famous movie “La vita è bella” and in the video game “Rome: Total War”, being also home of many annual festivals.

Among Arezzo most famous residents there are Roberto Benigni (actor and director), Michelangelo (artist; born near the town), Francesco Redi (17th-century physician), Giovanni Filippo Apolloni (17th-century poet and librettist), Daniele Bennati (cyclist) and many more well-known others.

Arezzo is also a branch campus of the well known University Oklahoma from the United States of America which has programs designed to provide students with a unique exposure to the local culture and a way to foster a relationship between the campus and the city.

As a tourist destination, Arezzo benefits from a central location and is within a reasonable distance from some of Italy’s finest cities including Florence, Pisa, and Perugia. Additionally, the city itself has an expansive history and has some truly remarkable buildings such as the Duomo San Donato and the Teatro Petrarca.
