Full Description

Almost 35 km south of Florence, on an elevated plain in the broad Arno valley, travellers will find the small medieval town of Castelfranco di Sopra, a military embattlement established by the Republic of Florence in the 13th century. Today, the pretty town has a population of around 3000 inhabitants. Castelfranco di Sopra lies centrally within a triangle of cities: Florence, Arezzo and Pisa. In November 2005, Castelfranco di Sopra had the privilege of being accepted into the club of a€;žI Borghi più Belli d'Italiaa€; (the most beautiful places in Italy). The estate is located about 5km away from the town of Castelfranco, at roughly 700m above sea level, on the hillside of the Pratomagno mountain range. It lies in an open area within multi-hectares of terraced nature reserve. Both natural stone houses stand protected by mature holly oaks. From this spot, the view extends across the Arno valley and into the Chianti heights. Even on a hot summera€;™s day, the climate is comfortable at this altitude. The centre of the buildings originates from the 14th century and served in earlier years as a watchtower. When watching the sunset, the Chianti heights can be seen in the distance. To the east, beyond the Pratomango mountain range (1,600m above sea level), begins the densely wooded region of Casentino.This estate is an oasis of peace within a haven of nature.
