For those of you who love History, the origins of Castellaccio go back to ancient Etruscan times, the little gravel lane running through the property is Roman and overlooking the main pool is an ancient 11th Century church (presently a private home) Up on the hilltop is an ancient chestnut grove, where intrepid explorers can find the ruins of the original Castle “Castel d’Azzo”, destroyed in the 14th Century strife between the Guelfs and Ghibellines.
