This is one of the oldest country residences of the Tuscan nobility of the 18th century. The residence was commissioned, in the first half of the eighteenth century, by the noble Florentine family Ristori, as a summer retreat to unwind in the quiet of the countryside.
In the early 70s the villa was purchased by the current owner who carried out a careful renovation respecting the layout of the interior spaces and putting the frescoes of the artists of the time in a new light. Today the house is therefore truly one of a kind. Immersed in the hills of the Val di Chiana, in the heart of Tuscany, at the foot of the small medieval village of Lucignano, it is the ideal place to discover the main Tuscan cities of art such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Perugia. Surrounded by a park of centuries-old trees of over 7 hectares, completely fenced to ensure maximum privacy, this noble residence is the ideal place for large families, or groups of friends, and can accommodate up to 18 people.
