The
Experience

There’s a wonderfully isolated feel to this tiny hamlet and its once simple church, high on a knoll with views all around over wooded hills and farmland. Having looped through vineyards and olive groves, a short stretch of unmetalled road brings you to Valliano’s characterful cluster of stone buildings. Behind the owners’ house, in pristine gardens – lawned and flower-filled – the old church’s gothic arched doorway draws you in to a meticulous restoration, the stuff of style magazines. First to the wonderfully lofty, beamed living space: grey stone walls, terracotta floors, high arches dividing the dining, seating and (perfect) kitchen areas. A fab chandelier presides over dining, smart leather sofas face the wood-burner, a ‘floating’ iron staircase leads up. Bedrooms aren’t huge but are hugely appealing; uncluttered, country chic with designer lighting, chestnut beams, embroidered bed covers, rustic doors as bedheads. Stylish, honey-coloured bathrooms have the best, drenching showers. Sit out under the stone loggia and ponder: a walk to hill-top Anghiari, antique hunting in Arezzo, a thermal bath and massage…
