RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Situated in an idyllic location just outside the town of Arezzo and guarded by striking geometries of vines and olives, this prestigious property reflects all the charm of 16th century stately homes. Large elegant lounges, refined bedrooms each with private bathroom and decorated with rich fabrics, romantic four-poster beds and antique furniture, a well-tended garden and a huge exclusive-use swimming pool, all make Palazzaccio the perfect setting for a family reunion or for accommodating large groups of friends who want to spend a pleasant relaxing holiday in a tranquil setting, yet close to the most beautiful and prestigious attractions of this part of Tuscany. We are less than three kilometres from the historic town centre of Arezzo that was the birthplace of numerous artists and which today conserves architectural and artistic masterpieces of world fame; thanks to the A1 motorway (Autostrada del Sole) which is just 13 km away and to the train station (5 km away), you can easily reach Florence, Siena, Perugia, Cortona and the beautiful areas of the Chianti and Casentino areas. Palazzaccio is part of the farm estate of San Fabiano, located about 500 m from the residence, one of the largest and most prestigious in the region, whose lands cultivated with olives and grapes produce an exceptional extra virgin olive oil and the prestigious nectar which you can taste and buy directly from the cellars on site.

About one hectare of parkland surrounds Palazzaccio, characterized by large areas planted with grass and bounded on the sides by the vineyards of the property that stretch to the hilly horizon. From the entrance gate, an elegant private driveway lined with cypress trees leads to the parking place beside the villa. In the beautiful, well-tended garden, enlivened by many blooms, areas have been set up for relaxing outdoors, ideal for convivial situations but also, in the case of large groups of people, to ensure private moments or quiet relaxation. The portico in front of the main villa, with direct access from the kitchen, and the pergola equipped with table and chairs, situated between the villa and the annex, are the two ideal areas for alfresco dining.
The large rectangular pool, in a secluded and panoramic position, lies in the centre of a large terracotta-paved surface and lawn, provided with sunbeds and a gazebo. It is about 30 m from the villa and is reached with a few steps across the garden. The pool, lined in PVC with a stone border, measures 9 x 18 m with the depth varying from 1,40 to 2,5 m. It has a ladder for access to the water and internal lighting. There is also a cold-water shower.
