It is a magnificent country villa of the seventeenth century whose dramatic aspect is accentuated by the stunning loggia overlooking the front garden and the valley.
The tower, the orangerie, a small private chapel and the imposing stone family crest of Medici and Guasconi on the high corner face the driveway surrounded by the lush 19 hectares of terrain give the villa a resplendent air of grace and charm of bygone centuries that can still be experienced today in its entirety. It is probable that Ottaviano de Medici who married Selvaggia d'Alesandro Guasconi placed the precious stone crest on the corner of the villa.

The entire property was part of the great possession of the Pazzi family after the conspiracy against Lorenzo and Giuliano de Medici ended in 1478 when everything was confiscated by the rebel officers. In 1652 Maria Isabella de Medici left the property in inheritance to Roberto Papi's children whose descendants owned it until 1807 when Bernardo Papi sold it to Marchese Giulio Cesare Bertolini. In 1849 Villa I Morulli came into inheritance to the Marchesi Carrega principi di Lucedio, the owners to the present day."

The villa has four halls of different sizes with lovely wooden ceilings entirely decorated by hand, a magnificent seventeenth-century loggia overlooking a large garden terrace overlooking the valley and the hills of careggi where time seems to stand still. Perfect location for organizing romantic weddings and events in an atmosphere rich in history, surrounded by the beauty of unspoiled nature.
