Dimora Storica Val di Colle        
COUNTRY HOUSE AND GOLF CLUB
Nearby Arezzo there are no places like Val di Colle.



There would be as much beautiful buildings, older areas, suggestive ladscapes and kind owners.But I think It's not possible to find out another place which combines all these characteristics and many others we don't want to reveal to not to take the pleasure from the guest discover them himself.

Follow the signs to Val di Colle, get to Bagnoro, take the little road and....go up...up....up...and find yourself,almost not knowing it, deep between olive trees and woods. It'll seem you got the the wrong directions, even you're sure you followed the right ones. It's just a feeling because you're busy looking around like you'd be walking across a “green heaven”, then there it is, the last turn....and the ancient home wooden gate. Stop for a second, not to get off the car, looking through the glass. It's like you'd get in another dimension , where only history, silence and fascination are around. You see one of those rare places where the man was able to create something truly beautiful, perfectly integrated in the nature. A not violated nature. Here you only will find nicely done flower bed, majestic trees and as much sandstone walls, overhung by the tiles red of the ancient tuscan brick. You breath the history between the stones with graven dates, old inscriptions, forged iron and wooden made furnishings created 700 years ago by capable craftsmen; leaned on old stone floors which leave space to a 1500 years old romanic road. Let's get in. Where are we? In a mansion house? Yes, it could be. Walls are very high, ancient staircase , against the wall 600 years old halberds. Maybe we're in a monastery, giving the short doors, the doorway arches crafted in the stones and the silence makes you think to a sacre palce. There's also a majestic fireplace in the living room : so we're in a villa. Now it's clear: we're in a place that's all these things together . We're at Val di Colle. Val di Colle tastes magic.Once you get here you sudden fall in love with it and once you left you'll be looking forward to come back even only to taste again all those spacialities like olive oil, wine and spices branded Val di Colle. Giovanni Palleggi, with his wife Anna and his son Pier Giovanni have brought Val di Colle to nowdays brightness. With huge commitment ,care and rare taste Nanni had restored the old buildings, stone after stone , giving to Val di Colle that warm soul that wrap you making feel at ease. So,do you know why it's wonderfull living in such places like Val di Colle? Because you discover yourself man and discover the relationship between time , signs ,the world and you taste the history breath . That breath is also yours.
