Breathtaking views abound in this small village perched atop a hill and surrounded by farmlands and forests. Whether you crave days spent relaxing on a hammock or days filled with hiking, golf, and sightseeing, you will not be disappointed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: As Americans living in Florence in the 60s, my family discovered this little village laying in ruins and with the help of a few friends who bought up the other houses we have restored this ancient village. We are artists and conversationalists. Always relishing in good food and interesting company.

Why the Owner Chose Ortignano Raggiolo, Arezzo, Italy:
This property is one of a kind. Very few villages or homes in the area offer such a vantage point. Most homes and villages in the area are lower in the valleys or nestled against a hill side with only one view. Our village has spectacular views in 360 degrees. From the Monastery at La Verna to the treeless peak of Pratomagno, the grandness of the Casentino Valley is on full display.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The village is full of Art and Artists and we offer specialized accommodations for artists. For an additional fee, access to a printmaking studio can me arranged. As well, we can arrange for and provide almost any materials sought by artists, including classes. We also offer an in house chef who can shop for and cook meals as requested using local ingredients and showcasing the culinary landscape of this unique region. Please inquire about the special services we can provide for you or your group.
