Scoop up your nearest and dearest or escape for a solo adventure to this oh-so-Italian penthouse set right in the beating heart of the historical town of Arezzo in Tuscany. Set in a glorious townhouse dating back to the XV century, this place delivers all the Tuscan charm you're chasing. Inside, there's a 'more is more' opulence to the space, with jungle murals and statement furniture bringing the wow factor. While those decorative floor tiles, stone archways, and white-washed vaulted ceilings remind you this home is firmly planted in Tuscany. But it's the suntrap balcony leading off from the bedroom that's getting us hot under the collar here – the views over the emblematic terracotta rooftops are magnificent. But if the weather doesn't buck up, the dining table area is an atmospheric spot for lazy breakfasts (the nearby bakery can help with that). When it's time to soak up the local culture, lose yourself to its ancient, winding streets packed with museums, farm-to-table restaurants serving Tuscan fare, and cosy wine bars for an evening tipple. And be sure to make a beeline for Arezzo's central square – it's just as beautiful as it appears in Roberto Benigni's classic film La vita è bella (Life is Beautiful).
