Location

Villa Sansovino is located in a strategic position as it is found only 16km away from the city of Arezzo and 30km from Cortona. 

Arezzo is full of historical buildings such as the Duomo and is also known for housing paintings of Piero della Francesca, Francesco Petrarca and Giorgio Vasari. Every month Arezzo hosts a lovely Antique Fair and twice per year the adventurous medieval jousting festival La Giostra del Saracino.

Cortona is an ideal town for those passionate about history and culture and an authentic location for someone to immerse themselves in Italian life. We remember it as not only the filming location of the Academy Award Winning Film La Vita è Bella, but also because its roots date back to Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Visitors can spend the day in the National Archaeological Park of Cortona, visit the Duomo and other various churches to learn about Cortona’s significant status throughout the Middle Ages http://ilportalecortona.it/it/cortona.php. There are also small artisanal shops where one can purchase hand made products and local gastronomical items.

The Chianti region is found a little more than an hour away from the estate. This area is famous for its prestigious wines and beautiful landscapes. The Castello di Ama of Lecchi in Chianti http://www.castellodiama.com, Fontodi Winery in Panzano in Chianti http://www.fontodi.com, and Querciabella http://www.querciabella.com in Greve in Chianti offer some of the best wines in the area.
