This is a splendid antique villa built during the Medici times and dates back to the 15th century. It is found among rolling hills of Vicchio di Mugello, home to the famous artists, Giotto and Beato Angelico. The building was first designed as a tower house meant for defensive purposes, but was then transformed into an elegant and majestic country residence.
It was mainly used as a hunting house given its particular location, perfect for hunting with birds of prey, an art that delighted the Medicis and their noblemen.
During the mid-19th century , the entire property was purchased by an aristocratic Swiss family, the Peratoners. One member of the family, Pietro, consolidated and successfully cultivated the 1000 hectares by using
innovative agricoltural practices and nurturing it to become one of the most important agricultural businesses in Tuscany at the time.
