Castello di Montozzi, owned by Bartolini Baldelil's family for about four centuries, is a medieval village that has been only partially modified by the wear and tear of time.
In 1976, when Carlo Bartolini Baldelli died, his three nephews inherited the estate and shared it : Luigi Bartolini Baldelli now the southern part of the estate and some detached farmhouses while his cousins Giovanni and Piero own the main villa, its garden and the nothern part of the estate. Built on top of a hill near Montevarchi (Arezzo), Castello di Montozzi dominates from its 450 m. around the upper Valdarno, offering a magnificent view of the Tuscan countryside, Pratomagno and the Chianti hills. Around the village, there are our olive groves from whose olives we produce an exquisite and well-known extra-virgin olive oil. Our farm hospitality is offered both in accommodations within the village (in 3 apartments and 2 small detached houses) and in two large villas ('Il Castellarino' and 'La Collina') not far from the Castle.
THE AGRICULTURAL ESTATE
The main activity of the Castle Montozzi is olive growing, followed by forestry and the farm holiday business.
The visitor is able to perceive, and admire the harmony of the beautiful surroundings. Near the village, there are many olive trees that slowly leave room to the woodland, a predominant feature of the landscape. A place of tranquility where silence and privacy reign supreme, as it is inserted into a real agricultural estate, still anchored to the ancient local traditions and customs. Renowned throughout the territory for the beauty of the place, Castello di Montozzi is also well-known for the production of high quality extra virgin olive oil.
