Fodor's Expert Review Calcione

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

This six-century-old family estate (circa 1483) now houses sophisticated rustic lodgings; 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. 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.
