Driving from the charming village of Talla through the forest, the villa appears in front of you, surrounded by its immaculately maintained grounds (stretching to 21 acres), with the mountains of northern Arezzo as backdrop. This secluded picturesque spot is the perfect location to unwind and relax.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped and designed to the highest standard: with an Italian themed garden (with a maze of box hedges, statues and pots), cypress trees, olive trees, vines, pergolas, fig and apples trees, pretty English rose garden and large lawned areas with spectacular views of the Casentino Valley and the Tuscany countryside. All are the proud result of the patience and hard work of Luca, the head gardener of the estate.
Villa Striano has its own private large infinity swimming pool with views down the valley. There is a lower sunbath pool into which flows water from the upper pool. The constant movement prevents build up of any unwelcome insect life. The pool is 12m x 8m with a 12m x 2m sunbath pool.
The pool area is fronted by a hand-painted fountain while the area immediately underneath it has a separate section equipped with stones, perfect for spa-like feet massages.
These are the perfect setting to enjoy numerous outside sitting and dining areas scattered all around: by the pool (with fully equipped kitchen and BBQ area), right outside the annexe's or ground floor bedrooms, behind the kitchen. A path eventually leads you down, after a pleasant stroll, to the river where one can fish or enjoy a picnic.
