The property is a historic gem, already chosen by the Etruscans, as a dwelling between Valdichiana and Val d'Orcia. The building then had its heyday in the 1800s and to this day has been perfectly renovated immersed in a large unspoiled park. The rooms and rooms are finely frescoed and magically preserved and enjoy a view of Montepulciano, in the enchantment of an incredible panorama that extends to Lake Trasimeno until it trespasses on the horizon to the Apennines. On the ground floor of the villa there is a large living room and a large room where, in their original beauty, frescoes were recovered in which there are scenes from the Napoleonic countryside and the coat of arms of the "Tarugi" family to remember the ancient origin of the villa and the emotional closeness with the great leader for part of a noble sister "Tarugi". Also on the ground floor there is a room with bathroom and entrance independent of the garden. All the furnishings are proper to the villa with the colors of the time, the trines, the paintings of flowers, still the old grit of the floors make it particularly suggestive.
