The Villa Macia
Macia Villa stands on the ruins of the old palace of the Scali, dismantled by the Ghibellines in 1260. The impressive main façade points towards the Val di Marina and majestically stands on the foothills of Calvana. The property of the villa literally married Arrighetti and Pitti families, to arrive then to the Dufour Berte Landucci family who currently owns it.
Surrounded by Beautiful Art Cities
The Macia Farm is 7 km far from the center of Prato and 16 km from Florence’s central station, which are both easily reached by train from the closest station of Calenzano. The farm is located nearby a highway connetting to the most important cities of Tuscany: Florence 16 km, Pistoia to 25 Km, Lucca 65 Km, Pisa at 90 Km, Siena 80 Km, and Arezzo at 90 Km.
