Since the 16th century - when Altipertoli was a watchtower and then a hunting lodge for the florentine families of Strozzi and Cavalcanti - this is a corner of heaven, where body and soul draw energy from the Chianti land.
The house is built at the top of a hill; the view goes from the Apuan Alps, where the marble for Michelangelo's David was extracted, to Pratomagno massif, around which the Arno flows.
Rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive trees surround the property; the landscape around Archipettoli witnesses centuries of passionate labor to create a unique environment as well as to produce the best olive oil on earth and some of the finest wines.
Art jewels of Florence and Siena are just a short drive away from Altipertoli. Hidden gems such as the Abbey of Passignano and the Pieve of San Pancrazio are close by.
