Villa il Trebbio is interesting from a landscaping point of view thanks to its splendid, centuries-old estate. It is also an important historical and archaeological site. The main palazzo dates back to 1600 and is decorated with stone friezes, an elegant limonaia and a private chapel, all of which enhance the beauty and majesty of the place.
Villa il Trebbio also has a rich archaeological history; not far away is the Villa Romana di Ossaia, an admirable example of a villa from the late Republican-Imperial period of Rome, where fascinating mosaics were discovered, which are now on display at the MAEC museum in Cortona. The Roman villa is part of this property, and surrounded by fields of olive trees.
The palazzo that now houses the elegant apartments actually dates back to the 17th century. Originally, according to historical documents, it was a mill. Subsequently, it underwent various transformations and in 2000 a careful restoration gave new life and prestige to this historic farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside.
Next door to the historic Cortona villa is a cottage that contains a third flat. The beautiful arched windows indicate that this was originally a tool shed. Another small building, which was formerly a chapel, is now used as a storeroom, and completes the property rich bounty of historic buildings.
