My husband and I shared this incredible Arezzo apartment with our dear friends. From the moment we opened the wooden front door, we were mesmerized by our surroundings that we were going to experience for 6 evenings. Everything was appointed with extreme attention to detail! This property was decorated with incredible antiques and provided all the comforts of home (especially if you like to cook!). On the evening of our arrival, we experienced our best dinner in Italy, specially prepared by Stefano. He has a passion for the history of Arezzo, and was eager to share that history with us. We had many laughs during dinner and were provided with a plethora of suggestions for the days ahead. This is an incredible property, as you are 15 minutes (walking) from the train station. You have the ability to take trains and explore Tuscany. Upon returning from a long day of site seeing, you can strike a fire in the beautiful 7’ fireplace. We cannot say enough about this property! It is magical, beautiful, comfortable, relaxing and comes with a kind and thoughtful proprietor (not to mention....incredible chef!). Gratzi Stefano! Until we meet again!
Everything about this experience was spectacular. Stefano was a wonderful host and our group was well taken care of. The apartment completely lives up to the pictures and to it's reputation and we were thoroughly impressed. I will absolutely stay here on my next trip to Arezzo.
Our 7 night stay at “Locanda Bellavita” Arezzo was absolutely lovely and certainly the best holiday apartments we have rented in Italy. From the time of our arrival, Stefano the owner was there to make our stay memorable. Stefano arranged for us to have lunch in the apartment, it was feast set for a king prepared by mine host, a table laden with delectable local produce, the main course prepared by Stefano and accompanied by a good selection of the regions wines. My wife, being dairy free, was also catered for. The property is a charming ground floor apartment in the old town. When walking in to the apartment from the street it is quite magical, especially with the huge fireplace being lit for us on our arrival. Arezzo and “Locanda Bellavita” apartment is ideally located by road, being centrally located to the many towns and places in Tuscany we had on our list to visit. The apartment it is full of character and charm. Stefano has renovated and decorated the apartment with flare, quality furnishings, providing his guests with all creature comforts to make their stay comfortable. Its must stay for the discerning traveller to Tuscany. We are already planning our return stay again there next year.
We have rented vacation homes for 20+ years and this by far was the best rental we have ever had the pleasure to call "Our Home" for a week. The pictures do not do it justice. From the moment Stephano let us in the door, we are impressed with the beauty and warmth of the space. The quality of the workmanship is remarkable and even more impressed to know that Stephano did the work himself. The location is perfect, close enough to the center of Arezzo to walk, but far enough to enjoy a peaceful stroll with the locals. Coming home each evening to a roaring fire, a glass of wine and smooth jazz, truly made us fell like "LA Dolce Vita". If you are looking for an exeptional rental and want live life like a local....this is the place for you,
