In the heart of the Casentino region, the first hollow along the bank of the Arno river, on the borders between Florence, Arezzo and the Romagna, this property for sale in Italy is formed by three main farmhouses, on two levels each, plus some others outbuildings for a total roofed surface of about 3200m2 beautifully immersed in 99 he of arable land and forest. A breathtaking landscape is designed along the Arno river, in between the green of the poplars and the mountain wrapping around the whole valley. This complex is made by several outbuildings: the Farmhouse, in exposed stone walls, is composed by two different body of 450m2 and 300m2, of which the eldest dates back to the Xth century, being part of the ancient Castle of Romena. The estate known as Coltriciano has a surface of about 950m2 and overtops Casentino and one of the tuscan most suggestive romanic parish church, called Pieve di Romena. A second farmhouse, a stable and a shed – for a total roofed surface of 1200m2 – complete this Tuscany property.
Neverthless the main feature of this territory is the thousand year old forest and three Monasteries built there: Camaldoli, La Verna and Vallombrosa. The Casentino valley is the place for those who love nature and look for relaxation, traditions and local history. Merged in the woods and in the peace of Casentino National Park, this farm-estate mantains traditional tuscan features: stoned wall, wooden ceilings and finishes, stone for the outside works.
At the foot of the Castle of Romena, the estate boasts located in a panoramic position overtopping the high Casentino hollow, not far from the National Park of Casentino and the Falterona Mountain. The farmhouse is in a prime position for those who want to visit Florence, Arezzo and Siena, but also for those who wish to discover Tuscany and its less attended places.

Tuscany Pratovecchio di Romena

Pratovecchio rises in the high Valdarno area, along the left bank of the homonymous river. The place name is quoted for the first time in an official document dating back to 1054: it comes from the compound of the two words “prato” (grass) and “vecchio” (old). The origin of the village occurred on the Early Middle Ages around a castle, being this latter under the jurisdiction of the influencial family of the Guidi Counts, as testified by an official document issued in 1191 by the emperor Enrico IV who confirmed the property of the village of Pratovecchio to the Guidi's family.
Up to the end of the XIVth century the village was under the influence of different branches of the Guidi's family, like the Davola's one, during whose domination the village was fortified by building a ditch around the residential settlement and equipped with a circular ring of walls. In the second half of the XIVth century Pratovecchio was sold to the Poppi's family, another Guidi's branch.
In 1440 owgin to the Guelphs' victory in the whole Casentino area, Pratovecchiowas annexed by the Republic of Florence to its domain. During the Florentine domination, firts under the Medici's family and then under the Lorena Dukes, Pratovecchio increased its importance becoming a market from which the wood coming from the close pine-wood was exported.
Pratovecchio got such an economic influence at the end of the XVIIIth century that the Lorena Dukes annexed all the pine-woods to their property. In 1861 Pratovecchio was annexed to the Reign of Italy by the King Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoia.
