This villa was built in the 1670 and recently restored, with a large swimming pool. It is located a little more then one km out of the city walls of Arezzo town. The ground floor consists of a wide living room with fireplace and TV corner, dining room, bathroom and a rustic kitchen fully equipped.
On the first floor there are 5 bathrooms with tube, 3 double bedrooms and 3 rooms with two beds, each bed with canopy and dressed with precious materials.
On the second floor there are further 5 rooms, each with its own bathroom and a beautiful living room with veranda furnished with an original “fratino” and very modern art pieces from a famous theatre-scene designer.
The villa is furnished with precious antiques.
Il Palazzaccio is 1 Km far from Villalta (18 sleeps) (see the concerned web page) through a small country path. Both properties are located in the same property.They belong to a noble and very old family – surrounded by the grapes of the farm in which the Count produce rare wines keeping up the tradition of his ancestor.
The villa is located 900 m far from the city wall of Arezzo that is only a ten-minute walk away.
The location is particularly nice because as it lies across the Valdarno and Casentino territories, sites of great historic and landscape interest are within easy reach.
By way of example:
Sansepolcro, home of Piero della Francesca, is 20 mi. away;Cortona 20 mi.; the ancient monasteries of La Verna and Camaldoli
26 mi.; the road of "Chianti Classico" 20 mi.;Florence and Siena 40 mi.
Arezzo offers many artistic and cultural attractions such as the fresco cycle painted by Piero della Francesca in the church of San Francesco; the medieval Piazza Grande and the Basilica della Pieve.
Interesting possibilities for shopping are offered by the many shops and boutiques and by the Prada and Gucci outlet stores, located in Valdarno, about 20 mi. away.
