Terre di Baccio has its origins in the XVI century, when the main villa was built. It was the property of Baccio Velluti Zati, a chief magistrate of nearby Fiesole, whom the property was named after. The house is in traditional leopoldine rural architecture, complete with a “piccionaia”, a central tower with a function in part similar to a dovecote. The property was further expanded into a larger farm in the XVIII century, when it became a part of the nearby Vitigliano estate.
By the end of the XX century, the property had been left to complete abandon.
During the intense renovation process undertaken in the early 2000s, extreme care was taken to ensure that Terre di Baccio’s rural tradition was preserved. Yet, no expense was spared to add every modern comfort, ensuring that the property would meet the needs of our guests.
The interiors were reinvented and decorated in a style that is eclectic and diverse, with elements of a more traditional Tuscan rustic style and “arte povera”, but also some unusual touches originating elsewhere in the world - all contributing to an ambience that is comfortable and, through its unusual style, intriguing.
