The villa stands at an altitude of 290 meters on a hill in Valdichiana, in Castiglion Fiorentino (Arezzo).
Valdichiana is a valley in central Italy that stretches in the provinces of Perugia, Terni, Siena and Arezzo. The valley owes its name to the river Clanis, which passed through it in the past. Valdichiana, which was already inhabited in Etruscan times and then became a marshy area because of the alterations the Roman made to the flow of the river Clanis, in the course of the centuries, was the theatre of various famous battles involving the armies of Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Perugia, including the battle of Scannagallo in 1554.
After having been successfully reclaimed in the second half of the 18th century, in the present days Valdichiana is one of the most fertile areas of Tuscany. This is the land in which celebrated wines, such as the Chianti Colli Aretini, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the Rosso di Montepulciano, and an excellent extra-virgin olive oil are produced. However, Valdichiana is renowned all over the world especially for its excellent chianina meat.
After having been renovated with an eye to preserving its original architectural structures, what in the past was a country residence nowadays is an excellent accommodation for visiting some of the most important Tuscan cities of art, such as Arezzo, Anghiari, Cortona, Sansepolcro, Siena, Florence and Montepulciano. Staying at the elegant vacation villa, guests will have the opportunity to attend the Giostra del Saracino in Arezzo, the historical reenactment of the battle of Scannagallo in Pozzo della Chiana and many other folkloric events that every year take place in the towns of Valdichiana. In proximity to the villa are also a golf club, a tennis club and a riding stable.
The villa is surrounded by a wide panoramic garden in which lies the private swimming pool (12x6 m; depth: 1.20-2.00 m) equipped with Roman stairs and accessible to guests with disabilities, thanks to a ramp for wheelchairs.
