Welcome > Getting Around

As we are located in the countryside, car rentals are highly recommended. That being said, there is direct train service to Arezzo and Florence (with connections to other destinations) from nearby Ponticino, located 3km (2 miles) down the road. We can also recommend a reliable travel company for airport transfers, dining transportation and guided or unguided sightseeing and wine tasting excursions. Driving directions are provided below for our guests' most freqently traveled routes. If you need directions other than those found here, please contact us and we'll be happy to assist.

Check our calendar to see if your desired dates are available.
