The villa is located on an old trade route that set out from the Adriatic Sea, passed by the villa and through the valley and culminated in nearby Arezzo an ancient settlement that was the site of an important Etruscan city. Some of Arezzo΄s architectural heritage was lost to bombing in World War II, but much survives, including a Medici Fortress, Cathedral and the Bsilica of San Domenico. Arezzo is filled with art and is famous for its goldsmiths and antique traders.
The villa grounds enclose extended lawns that lead to a large swimming pool surrounded by a brick terrace with sun lounges. The simple peace and beauty is further enhanced by the spectacular views of the valley with its medieval villages, vineyards, olive groves and gentle hills covered in Cypress trees.
The exterior of La Famiglia looks much as it did when it was constructed and the interior reflects the planning and forethought that created the gracious and logical flow of the house. The villa is well appointed and has been restored and renovated with modern amenities and conveniences. The living areas are large and comfortable with whitewashed walls and heavy-beamed ceilings.
The main living room has a rich red and gold color palette with comfortable over-stuffed couches and a stone fireplace. A separate TV room offers comfortable seating for enjoying media.
