Palazzo Rosadi is a beautifully restored historical manor house dating from 1785, and has been in the Rosadi family for over 200 years. It offers 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and a private pool. It is a luxurious country home in a wonderful location near the little village of Monterchi (near Arezzo), all surrounded by a wide, private park with a wonderful garden and a pool warmed by an all day sun exposure with an impressive panoramic view.
One of the charms of staying in Tuscany is that most houses have a long and interesting history. Palazzo Rosadi is not an exception! In 1889 Francesco Rosadi came to live in Ripoli with his family. He had bought a number of farm estates in the area, and Palazzo Rosadi was in a good and central position to run and manage all of them. In 1902 Palazzo Rosadi was extended as the family had already grown. They used the services of a local artist, Giangio, from Monterchi, who decorated the majority part of the bedrooms and corridors. During the 2nd World War the house was used as a refuge to the inhabitants of Ripoli, during a 2 week bombardment by German forces.
In more recent times, the house has been used as a family home, from where they managed the farming of their local land. From the year 2000, the Rosadi family became involved in tourism.
