Holiday apartment for rent in Tuscany, Italy

Located at one end of a small hamlet in the hills above the Upper Tiber Valley, Villa Cresta is the ideal spot for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in the Tuscany countryside. From here you can explore eastern Tuscany and neighbouring Umbria by car or on foot.

We have a single holiday apartment for rent as self-catering accommodation, detached from the main house, with it's own private terrace, garden and parking area. The apartment looks out towards Caprese Michelangelo, the birthplace of the famous artist, nestling on the side of Monte Castello, part of the Appenine mountain range.

The accommodation can be booked on a per week or per day basis, with no fixed start and end days, so you can take advantage of cheaper mid-week flights.

The many nearby way-marked footpaths make this a perfect location for walking and just to the north is the Casentino - a vast area of forest, green alpine meadows, streams, waterfalls and high breezy ridges with spectacular views, criss-crossed by many footpaths and trails.

Nearby towns include the medieval walled town of Anghiari, one of the most beautiful and striking hill towns in Tuscany, and Sansepolcro, home of the annual "Palio della Balestra" (Crossbow tournament) and birthplace of the artist Piero della Francesca.

Just to the south is Umbria, the green heart of Italy, with its famous historic towns of Gubbio and Assisi; the city of Perugia, capital of Umbria; and Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in Italy after Como, Garda and Maggiore.
