Description

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Podere Galearpe stands on an isolated hill 576 m high, deep in the green valleys of the Casentino, on that strip of land that stretches between the provinces of Arezzo and Florence, carpeted with meadows and woods and crossed by the river Arno. It is a cosy and intimate retreat in a fascinating location, secluded and peaceful, ideal for a romantic getaway or for those seeking an escape far from the usual tourist routes, for those wanting to experience nature in its most authentic and pristine essence but, at the same time, spend it in a luxury residence for no smokers. A renovated 18th century farm, the charm of its former structure has been enriched by beautiful furnishings of country-chic inspiration combined with accessories of minimal design that enliven the warm rooms, with floors in light oak, ceilings with pickled beams, handcrafted accessories, ultra-modern bathrooms and a beautiful well-equipped kitchen opening out onto the garden. The pride of the property is the swimming pool, located in the most panoramic point of the park surrounding the house, a body of water set in the frame of a luxuriant wood of oaks, beaches and chestnut trees where you can breathe an atmosphere of serene contemplation. The property is centrally positioned for exploring the territory, known for its grandiose natural and artistic resources. The Casentino forests, the picturesque area of the Balze, Pratomagno and the Vallombrosa Forest represent a true paradise for excursionists, runners and walkers, dotted with numerous towers and strongholds, Dantesque places and evocative spiritual destinations, such as the famous Sanctuary of La Verna, the monastery of Camaldoli, the castle of Poppi. Talla is the nearest village, about 4 km from the property, where you can find craft shops, restaurants and all major amenities, including a riding club. In the area you will find a golf course, located on a panoramic hill in the town of Poppi (about 25 km away), tennis courts (in Talla, 4 km away, and in Bibbiena, 20 km) and the possibility of sport fishing (“catch and release” practice) at the nearby lake of Tripoli.

Interior

The house is on two levels connected by an internal staircase with elegant, hand-crafted bannisters. The main entrance leads into the sitting room with sofas, satellite TV and a thermo-fireplace communicating with the open-plan dining room and kitchen. Continuing on from the sitting room you come to a small hallway with the stairwell and doors to a bathroom with shower and to a small sitting area with double sofa bed. All the rooms have direct access to the outside thanks to the many French windows; in particular, from the kitchen, you have easy access to the garden on the side where the table is set up for outdoor dining. Going upstairs you come to a reading room, a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with tub and shower and a short corridor onto which open a further two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower.

Park

From the entrance gate a short driveway flanked by young cypress trees leads to the parking area near the house. The park around the house adapts to the hilly morphology of the area and blends naturally with the areas of woodland and arable and pasture land surrounding it, within a vast property where olive trees, fruit trees and rose bushes alternate in the green wooded setting, where it is not uncommon to meet deer, porcupines, squirrels and foxes. Around the house is a 500 sq m area of garden planted with grass and enclosed by a wooden fence with, near the kitchen entrance, the outdoor dining area covered by a pergola.

Swimming Pool

Perched on a rise with an open view on all sides, the rectangular pool is located in the centre of an area of about 500 sq m enclosed with a wooden fence and with two gates and reached from the house up a flight of stone steps bordered by lavender bushes. The pool, lined in PVC and with sunken steps to facilitate access to the water, measures 12 x 6 m with the depth ranging from 0,90 to 2 m. It has salt purification, internal and external lighting, an outdoor solar shower and can be heated on request only in July and August (extra cost). In the sunbathing area surrounding it, bounded by stone slabs and teak and then grass, are sunbeds and a shady gazebo set up with an elegant sofa, table and chairs. The swimming pool will be open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.
