Casa Largnano is a delightful stone farmhouse that stands out amongst the dense vegetation on the hills of the Val Cerfone at Ranchetto, 683 m above sea level and just a few kilometres from Castiglion Fiorentino, a typical little Tuscan town. In this wonderful natural setting, between green hills and woods where peace and silence reign supreme, you will easily feel at one with nature and enjoy this little corner of paradise. Transformed from a 19th century rural farmhouse into a welcoming residence, the rooms are characterised by antique wooden-beamed ceilings and terracotta floors while the bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning. The completely-fenced garden of about 3000 sq m extends over terracing around the house with numerous plants and flowers typical of Tuscany; this place, surrounded by multi-faceted greenery, is embellished by a beautiful swimming pool located just a few metres away. Enjoying an apéritif by the pool or dining under the romantic gazebo will surely be a memorable experience. Located within a natural park, the house is the ideal place for those who truly appreciate the beauty of nature and are looking for a holiday in complete privacy, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Casa Largnano is a 30-minute drive from the popular hilltop town of Cortona and another 30-minute drive in the opposite direction to the attractive town of Arezzo. Its excellent geographical location, not far from major road links, will allow you to move between the principal cities of art of Tuscany, such as Siena and Florence, but also of nearby Umbria, such as Città di Castello, Perugia and Assisi. The well-known rural borghi around Siena, like Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino can be easily reached, as well as the magnificent area of Chianti.
Casa Largnano has two floors, connected both internally and externally (via a French window in one of the first floor bedrooms), following a circular design that connects the rooms on the ground floor. The main entrance leads to the sitting room with satellite TV and double sofa bed, in front is the kitchen with table and chairs and next to it is a second sitting room with fireplace, armchairs and sofa. All the rooms have direct access through French windows to the garden and, completing the floor, is a bathroom with shower. A brick staircase leads up to the first floor with a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, and two double bedrooms (one with divisible bed and direct outside exit) that share a bathroom with shower. Air condition only in the bedrooms.
The peace, silence and intact nature that this place offers is certainly the same as a century ago when Casa Largnano was a base for many farmers coming from the nearby mountains who stopped here overnight before continuing on to the town market to sell their animals and products. The property measures approximately 3000 sq m with a fence that runs along the entire perimeter of the garden. Tall trees such as oaks, holm oaks and chestnuts prevail and all around the house are succulents, junipers and potted flowers. In the area with gravel surface, between the main entrance and the pool, is the gazebo with wooden canopy and an area for outdoor dining equipped with chairs, benches, table, mobile barbecue and, slightly further off, a wood oven. A few metres past the wooden entrance gate, in front of the house, is a parking area with space for three cars. N.B. It should be noted that photo shoots are usually made in spring, therefore the colours and blooms of the gardens, lawns and parks may be different at the time of your entry in the property.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
Just 20 metres from the house is the beautiful private swimming pool. Rectangular, it measures 10 x 5 m with the depth varying from 1.10 to 2.00 m. Lined in PVC, it has chlorine purification, internal lights and a metal ladder for access to the water. The pool area, paved in stone and brick, is equipped with sunbeds, table, chairs, umbrellas and a solar shower. The pool will remain open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.
