The origins of this fantastic luxury estate are well documented and date back to 1138, when there was a guesthouse for travellers on the same position the villa occupies today, It seems that the Florentine Pazzi family was among the famous owners of this estate, a fact which is also proven by the crests of the family on the walls of the villa.
The villa was used as an observatory during WWII, thanks to its extraordinary position overlooking a great area from the Valdarno to the Chianti hills; the estate was then renovated and brought back to its old splendor and beauty, as you can still see today.
