Holiday Rental House
Tularu is a beautiful 15th century stone house, located on the edge of the hamlet of Fonaco on a ridge in the famous Tuscan hills, 3 km by road from the small hilltop town of Monterchi, approximately 30 km from Arezzo and even less from Sansepolcro and Citta di Castello, all offering fast road connections to the famous towns, cities and sites of Tuscany and Umbria. Its position affords panoramic views across the vineyards and valleys to the mountains beyond, with thickly wooded slopes and a cluster of houses nearby. The woods in the hills that rise up behind the house allow you to enjoy hours exploring an unspoilt natural paradise that is unchanged from the time of the Etruscans. Nestling amidst unspoilt Tuscan hillsides with superb views, Tularu is a haven of peace offering wonderfu...Tularu is a beautiful 15th century stone house, located on the edge of the hamlet of Fonaco on a ridge in the famous Tuscan hills, 3 km by road from the small hilltop town of Monterchi, approximately 30 km from Arezzo and even less from Sansepolcro and Citta di Castello, all offering fast road connections to the famous towns, cities and sites of Tuscany and Umbria. Its position affords panoramic views across the vineyards and valleys to the mountains beyond, with thickly wooded slopes and a cluster of houses nearby. The woods in the hills that rise up behind the house allow you to enjoy hours exploring an unspoilt natural paradise that is unchanged from the time of the Etruscans. Nestling amidst unspoilt Tuscan hillsides with superb views, Tularu is a haven of peace offering wonderful forest walks yet within easy driving distance of Tuscany’s historic towns Tularu itself has been decorated and furnished comfortably but in tune with local traditions to celebrate the simple pleasures in life. Meaning our prices won’t break the bank as a result. The ceilings are traditional beams and terracotta, while the rooms all feature original oil and watercolour paintings by the South African artist Neil Sack. The accommodation is divided into the “house” and “flat”. The house occupies the ground and first floors, and offers a dining room, kitchen diner, a terrace with pergola for eating “al fresco” and a sun terrace, as well as its own garden with fig trees. On the second floor there is a lounge featuring an original 15th century fireplace (with crest!), two double bedrooms (singles which can be joined to form doubles) and a bathroom with bath. All the rooms enjoy fantastic views. The flat in entirely self-contained with its own separate entrance, a large open plan sitting room with kitchen/diner, a shower room and a large bedroom with three beds, two of which can be joined to form a double. The flat also has its own small garden. A lockable intercommunicating door allows groups of up to 7 to rent the flat and house together at a special combined rate. We want our guests to enjoy Tularu as much as we do. Which is why we have kept everything as simple and flexible as possible. So please don’t hesitate to get in touch and see what we can do to give you your ideal Tuscan holiday. More
