Eighteenth Century

In the course of the centuries the Colle Villa was  enlarged and redecorated to suit the demands of the nobility

who used it as a hunting lodge and to host Peter Leopold of Hapsburg (1747-1792) Grand Duke of Tuscany for whom it was a secret meeting place with the Contessina Isabella of the long black hair and big romantic eyes. Their bedroom with its frescoed ceiling is used nowadays for the honeymoon of couples that celebrate their wedding at the Fattoria del Colle.
