Stefano & Sergio's Castle


General Description


Remains of a Roman Villa can be found under Villa Fabbroni.
It was built for the  centurion " Ponsius" when the Roman government granted him the land in 87 A.D. 
The name Panzalla comes from this time- the house (inLatin "aule") of Ponsius. 
It stood on a Roman road, fragments of which can still be seen, 
and was the most important building in the area, which it remained for many centuries. 
A Will dating from 1220 A.D. shows the property to have included castle, vineyards
 and outlying buildings at this time.
In the 1830's it was owned by a Leopoldo Fabbroni, a cousin of the Savoy Royal family and,
surrounded as it was with fields and forests, was used as a royal hunting lodge
to where the King secretly brought his mistress, Rosina.

A very peaceful place for relaxing and yet very near to art centre such as Florence 20 km and Siena 55km.
The villa has been very well restored keeping its orginal Tuscan design and has divided into
 5 lovely apartments all with their private entrance and garden area. 
It is like living in the past.There is a pool.
