The small villa is located in south-eastern Tuscany, near Cortona, a few kilometres south of Arezzo, in Valdichiana.

Situated in an area that had been inhabited since prehistory, Arezzo was an important Etruscan and Roman town. Then it became a free commune and was involved in the struggle that brought bloodshed in Tuscany in the Middle Ages. Arezzo was defeated by the Sienese and Florentine armies in the historical battle of Campaldino (1289), in which also Dante Alighieri took part, and in the following century was annexed by the Tuscan state dominated by Florence.

At present Arezzo, which has given birth to several famous Italian artists, is an important city of art. The basilica of San Francesco houses the "Legend of the True Cross", the famous cycle of frescoes by Piero della Francesca.

Many events are organised in what is renowned as the town of gold due to its numerous goldsmiths' workshops. Between the end of August and the beginning of September the representatives of the four quarters Arezzo is divided into participate in the "Giostra del Saracino" (Saracen Joust), whereas the stalls of the Antique Fair occupy Piazza Grande and the neighbouring streets on the first Sunday of each month and on the preceding Saturday. The fair attracts to Arezzo many antique lovers from Tuscany and central Italy.


Surrounded by a garden in which are the barbecue equipment and the private swimming pool (8x4 m), the charming small villa dating from the 17th century is the ideal solution for relaxing holidays in the peaceful countryside of south-eastern Tuscany. Art and culture lovers can take advantage of their stay at the villa to visit Arezzo, Cortona, Sansepolcro, Anghiari, Florence and Siena. A riding stable, a tennis club and Lake Trasimeno are just a few kilometres from the property.
