Location

The beautiful villa is located in Valdichiana, a few kilometres from Capolona and Arezzo.

Situated at the confluence of Casentino, Valdichiana, Valtiberina and Valdarno, Arezzo was founded in pre-Etruscan times in an area inhabited since prehistory and then became one of the most important Etruscan towns in Tuscany. The famous "Chimera" - a bronze statue representing the mythological monstrous female creature with the body of a lioness, the tail ending in a snake's head and the head of a goat at the centre of her spine - and the necropolis of Poggio del Sole date back to this period.

After having been conquered by the Romans in the 3rd century and then after having been the theatre of the struggle between the Goths and the Byzantine Empire, Arezzo became a free commune.

Like many other Tuscan towns, Arezzo was involved in the struggle between Guelphs and Ghibellines, and in 1289 the Florentine and Sienese armies defeated Arezzo in the famous battle of Campaldino, in which participated even Dante Alighieri. In 1384 Arezzo was annexed to the Tuscan state ruled by Florence. After a brief period of independence in the first half of the 16th century, in 1569 Arezzo became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
