Its original villa, Castello della Pieve, still lived in by the Marchese, goes back to 1250. After beng burned down by the Strozzis it was finely restored by expert craftsmen in the 1700's, and a beautiful Italian garden created, which is now surrounded by laurel hedges, along with the panoramic terrace overlooking the fields and the valleys full of vines and olive trees.
The farm estate has for years been producing organic extra virgin olive oil using biological cultivation techniques, as well as wine and grain.
Several clumps of old farm buildings have been restored to make beautiful spacious apartments. Each group of apartments is a completely separate settlement from the others, several minutes' drive in some cases, and each with its own large swimming pool.
The centre is the village of Pieve a Presciano, a short walk from all the apartments. There you will find a couple of shops, a bakery and a restaurant.
There is a farm shop down on the main road in the valley which is also the english-spaking reception. Nearly opposite is another good restaurant, just behind the petrol station.
