La Scheggia is a XV century rural hamlet located on the Tuscan hills, surrounding Arezzo and the nearby medival village, Anghiari.
The hamlet comprises of a series of detached farmhouses that have been restructured in the 80s by The Marquis d’Afflitto, while maintaining its rural DNA. The Italian Ministry of Culture classified La Scheggia national heritage as “a typical example of rural architecture during the Tuscany Grand Ducal period”.
Since 2012, Margherita delle Piane has taken over the management of this hospitality business started by her grandfather by promoting two houses totalling ten sleeps. A private house with an additional six-sleep capacity is also available upon request.
All houses have their own private gardens with a breath-taking view on the Tevere Valley and share a private swimming pool.
