Forte di Tregognano is a charming farm situated between the Tiber river valley and Casentino in the Arezzo province. This place has been inhabited since Etruscan times and several traces have been found close to the site. However, the beautifully restored buildings 'only' date back the Middle Ages.
Forte di Tregognano is 550 m above sea level and reached by a steep gravel road going through the woods. After 3 km along this small road you get to the top, and it all seems worthwhile. The cultural centres of the area are only a short drive away including Arezzo, Cortona and Sansepolcro. If you are willing to drive for about an hour you can get to Siena, Florence or Perugia.
The farm has been beautifully restored and has plenty of facilities to enhance your stay in these peaceful and charming surroundings. There is a swimming pool with views over the valley, large terrace for sun bathing, a small lake, barbecue, laundry room with washing machine…and a happy atmosphere. The site can be recommended to large families and small groups, who want to rent it all. There are only 6 apartments sleeping about 24 in total.
All the apartments are equipped with own heating, satellite TV and alarm. They have fine furniture in good taste and with an eye for detail. The kitchen equipment (always including a microwave oven) is usually kept in a cupboard in the living room so it is not on show unless you open the cupboard. The disadvantage of this lay-out is that it is impossible to serve large dinners in the apartments. But in return the opportunity to try out local dishes in nearby restaurants will be so much better appreciated.
