The farm sits above the village Palazzo del Pero just 12 km from Arezzo. The farm was once occupied by local farmers, but today it is converted into a series of pleasant apartments and rooms. The entire site is characterized by a friendly atmosphere and superb views. Because of the altitude, the climate is perfect and never too hot during the peak summer months.
The place is suited for those who want tranquil surroundings with abundant natural beauty, and also for those who appreciate a heated swimming pool with sun loungers and sun umbrellas. The farm has a restaurant with remarkable character, rustic interior with raw stone walls, exposed ceiling beams and a large 18th century fireplace, not to mention delicious and plentiful Tuscan food. It is open between July and September.

Less than 2 km from the farm you find the small town Palazzo del Pero with its shops and bars. Furthermore, Arezzo – the cultural town that is strangely overlooked – is just 12 km from here.
The apartments and bedrooms are furnished in a homely style with a blend of marvellous details, and a more debatable choice of style and furniture…but you don't go on holiday in the countryside to admire the interior design. All the apartments and bedrooms have satellite TV and bathrooms with a toilet and shower as well as their own heating system.
Apartment Il Bosco is on the ground floor at the back of the house. It has its own terrace by the entrance, a small kitchen-dining room, fireplace and single sofa bed and double bed and bathroom with toilet and shower.

The place positively surprised us. We stayed in an apartment in two storeys above the restaurant. Especially the hospitality from Nello and his staff. We were always met with kindness and a big "ciao" and a big smile. The pool is the centre, and here you meet with the other guests on a daily basis. There's lots of room and sunbeds. The pool was clean and heated. Especially the evening menu, with four courses of the most delicious ingredients and a very welcoming a la gourmet restaurant, was very exciting. Overall 25 euro and half price for children. There's two courses to chose from... very delicious, and it was too bad the one day, where we were on a trip, and had to eat out. We got breakfast each day for 6 euros and half price for children. Nice selection in the buffet.
The place is suitable for relaxation, but with room for children to play. No snobbery, amongst the other guests. Good place, which is centrally located in proportions to a lot of exciting towns. Cartona can be recommended to visit. For us, this is the real Tuscany, and even our children of 11 and 13 want to go back next year. We had an apartment with kitchen and fridge, so we could provide ourselves with cold drinks and lunch. We are going to visit Nello and his family again many times.
