Castello di Maiano
A long driveway lined with century old cypress trees leads to this beautiful country villa with private chapel and a tower. The most ancient part dates back to the Middle Ages, but the building has been enlarged and transformed several times. It's been in possession of the current owners for centuries now and is the hearth of a farm estate producing Chianti wine from the Arezzo hills and olive oil (both can been purchased).
Surrounded by wonderful cypresses, cederas and a gorgeous pine tree, the property boasts a peaceful position with wide views over the Chiana valley and hills including the castle of Gargonza. An attentive restoration has put in evidence the original ceilings with beams and bricks, stone walls, floors in stone and bricks,antic stone fireplaces.
