Villa Il Piccolo Granducato, immersed in a wide Italian-style meadow with a breathtaking view on the countryside and the surrounding hills, is a splendid sample of Tuscan rural architecture, dating back to the reclamation of the Valdichiana, established in the 18th Century by Granduca Leopoldo di Lorena, after who the architectural style is named.
The whole complex, which hosts a chapel still consacrated, has been recently restored according to the new "green" philosphy that provided it with a photovoltaic system designed to guarantee the independence from the energetic point of view. Building materials, pieces of furniture and accessories in contemporary style make this villa a modern and elegant place: welcoming and comfortable, yet maintaining the authentic "taste" of the beautiful and majestic structure, untouched by time.
