Description & Details of La Scheggia - Anghiari , Tuscany, Italy
La Scheggia is a lovely farmhouse dating back to the XI century that has been completely restored. Situated in a strategic position on the mountain pass between Tuscany and Umbria it is a perfect starting point for those who wish to spend a holiday of relaxation and cultural enjoyment.
La Scheggia is situated on the ridge that divides the Arno valley from the Tiber valley, at a height of about 600 m, in an area rich in green woods and gravelled paths that, since ancient times, have inspired the great Masters in the creation of remarkable paintings.
LEONARDO DA VINCI himself knew these places very well, and the proof of it is that in the map of the Chiana Valley, painted by the famous Master, la Scheggia is shown, together with the other medieval small towns, near the Castle of Montauto.
