The Relais Villa Baldelli is secluded in a quiet corner of the Tuscan countryside, enclosed in a park of 8 hectares where the cypresses and the oak trees that surround it give it a great harmony with nature. A small niche hotel that can surprise the traveller because it offers its guests a dimension of peace and quiet, almost mystical, while ensuring various possibilities of leisure just a few kilometres away.

The residence really enjoys a lovely location: in the middle between Arezzo, Assisi and Montepulciano.
