Castelletto di Montebenichi, amongst Tuscany’s wonders

The Castelletto di Montebenichi – in the hamlet of the same name, part of the Bucine municipality, in the province of Arezzo – is a historical residence in the Chianti hills.

The structure, originally built in the 12th century, is part of a small medieval village that looks out over Valdambra from some 500 meters of altitude, with a view that spans from Mount Amiata to Crete Senesi, from Siena to Cortona.

Historical frescoes, works of art, majolicas and bronze pieces, Renaissance drawings and paintings, archaeological finds, a vast park that includes a gym and a sauna: the Castelletto adds all of this to the surrounding natural wonders, art, food and wine of the area.

An abundance of beauty to enjoy.
