Calcione

Località Il Calcione 102, 26 km (15 miles) southwest of Arezzo, Lucignano, Tuscany, 52046, Italy

The elegant Marchesa Olivella Lotteringhi della Stufa has turned her six-century-old family estate (circa 1483) into a top-notch agriturismo. Think sophisticated rustic: many of the apartments have open fireplaces, and the stone houses have a private pool (the rest share the estate pool). Explore the grounds, which include olive groves, vineyards, and private lakes for fishing and windsurfing. "We hated leaving," says one Fodors.com user. To make up for the absence of room phones, free Wi-Fi service is available in the main castle and in all the houses and apartments. From June to September a minimum one-week stay is mandatory. All accommodation is self-catering.
