Podere Miravalle is a small olive farm situated at the top of a knoll with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.  From the loggia, west garden and pool, there is a stunning vista of the valley and Gargonza Castle on the opposite hill.  One approaches the property along dry stone walls, lined with cypress, oak and olive trees on the unpaved country lane.  This seven acre property includes woods, fruit orchard, olive groves and a terraced garden with spacious lawns.  Although secluded, it is only a twenty minute walk, an eight minute bike ride or a few minutes drive to the characteristically Tuscan hill town of Monte San Savino, 1.5km away.

Recently restored, Podere Miravalle retains its original 400 year old charm.  The house could be described as "peasant chic" in style, with subtle earthen colors used on walls and terra cotta floors throughout.  Attractive cotton and linen fabrics from the Busatti weaving mills of Anghiari complement the painted antique furnishings and interesting wrought-iron pieces.  The kitchen and bathrooms, although maintaining the "rustic" feeling, include modern touches such as stainless steel and Cararra marble counter tops.  The house appeared in various interior design publications, such as  Architectural Digest and “Tuscany Interiors” by Paolo Rinaldi.

Podere Miravalle has two floors and is 140 square meters in size. It works particularly well for two couples as there are two master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.

The ground level includes an entrance hall, passage room with single bed, double bedroom with queen bed (150cm x 190cm) and a shared bathroom; living room, dining room with fireplace, modern built-in galley kitchen (stove, refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, American and Italian coffee maker) and outdoor dining area under the loggia/porch. Both the dining room and kitchen have French doors leading to the porch. 

On the upper level (with access either via an external stone staircase with small porch directly from the garden or via an internal staircase in the living room) there is a living room with a library/reading area and satellite TV and two master bedrooms.  The first master has a queen bed and en suite bathroom with shower. The second master has a queen bed (or two single beds as required) and en suite bathroom with bathtub.  A separate entrance from the upstairs living room exits onto a little portico with stone steps leading to the south garden. 

A few meters from the main house in the garden area is the casina, a separate cottage with a queen bed (160cm x 195cm) and one single bed and bathroom with shower. The casina is air conditioned and has satellite TV.

Podere Miravalle has an impressive infinity pool (6.5m x 15m) with cascading water on two sides, set amidst the olive groves, corbezzolo, lavender, viburnum & rosemary. An atmosphere of peace prevails and the views are expansive and relaxing.
Guests will be delighted to discover the jewels of Renaissance art & architecture in little Monte San Savino, by the likes of  Andrea Contucci, known as “Sansavino” and Antonio San Gallo, not to mention the town’s many churches and towers.  Interesting art and ceramics exhibits are held throughout the year at the fortified "Cassero", an amazing museum & archaeological site. The area around Monte San Savino is synonymous with gastronomy; thus, many quaint, family-run trattorias and excellent restaurants can be found, catering to all tastes and pocketbooks.

Also of great interest is La Giostra del Saracino which takes place on the first Sunday in September in nearby Arezzo. This medieval jousting event displays facets of old world charm, famous history, tradition and tasteful cuisine.
