The Estate Il Palazzo is situated on a hill facing Arezzo at its north-eastern side. In ancient times the name “Il Palazzo” was for a “statio”(a military station) belonging to via Ariminensis or via Livia or Salt Road connecting Rome to Rimini. Nowadays it is a thriving farmhouse and the ancient medieval hamlet dominates the entire estate planted with vines, olive and cereals.

WHO WE ARE
We immersed ourselves in the restoration work of an agricultural farmhouse, among the first buildings, presumably built between 1870 and 1890, in Aiello del Friuli.
This structure is almost connected to the famous Alpe Adria cycle path, which connects Austria to Grado. Until recently the building was an agricultural sector, today it has become a comfortable and welcoming guest house.
