Civitella in Val di Chiana (Arezzo) - On the Tuscan hills between the gorgeous cities of Florence and Arezzo, between the valleys that Leonardo Da Vinci wanted to paint as the background of his masterpiece, "La Gioconda", right where you can still breathe the ancient traditions of the Tuscan land, there lies this wonderful estate of 140 hectares, of which 11 of vineyards and 5 of olive groves, as well as woods, pastures and arable land.
Inside, a real peasant village, complete with a church, which carries in its heart a rare jewel of Tuscan architecture: a splendid eighteenth-century villa, with a proper lemon house, overlooking the beautiful view of the valley that can be admired from the many windows and from the large panoramic terraces.
Around the villa, 13 buildings, including skilfully restored farmhouses, and agricultural outbuildings, some of which can easily be brought back into use with conservative restorations.
Ancient cobbled streets connect the buildings and among these even the remains of a Roman one that in the past connected the valleys.
The total of the buildings is around 4,000 square meters plus a large swimming pool.
The entire complex can easily go back to being a farm of excellence, since both the value of the buildings and the intrinsic characteristics make this property as beautiful as unique for its position.
Civitella in Val di Chiana is a characteristic medieval village that stands on the top of a hill a few kilometers from Arezzo. This municipality is characterized by a very heterogeneous morphology of the territory, and in fact it is divided into two distinct areas: the low mountain area covered with woods that hosts Civitella itself, and the flat one, in which the most populated centers such as Badia al Pino, Pieve al Toppo and Viciomaggio. Its dominant position, at 525 meters above sea level, has made it historically important for the garrison of the city of Arezzo and central Italy in general.
