Here we are, Lido and Luca,
We have given a lot of thought about what we would do in the homes we inherited from our great-grandparents - old Tuscan farmers bound to this land. We had initially planned to sell them but then we realized we would regret this decision terribly. Renovation on the houses was done and we thought it would be nice to share all of this with our guests: the lush countryside surrounding the house and some good wine thus reflecting the simplicity of our lifestyle.
So we worked patiently to make Villa Ferraguzzo into what you see today. We are happy to offer you a place with bright sunlit rooms, large gardens, swimming pool plus numerous sport activities or simply organize your holidays, anniversaries and weddings.
Above all we wish you a warm welcome!
Luca purchased this villa in 1932
Why Luca chose Anghiari
Freedom, fruit, Italian wines, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody ,these are good reasons.
You can live in a Country house which is part of the old world, with stunning views from the windows. The museums & picture galleries in Florence, Siena, Perugia, Arezzo and Sansepolcro are in easy driving distance; the Anghiari music festival in July is just one of many great classical and jazz events. The vineyards are outstanding, and all the local Italians love Americans who liberated them. THE POOL is a very Olympian 16m x 8m and is 1.5-1,90 m in depth and has roman steps that are perfect for relaxing on and taking in the views
There is a shaded paddling pool with toys for small children and babies.
