History:
 

The villa was built at the end of the 17th century by the Fiorilli family, which owned vast amounts of land and properties near Castelfranco di Sopra and Loro Ciuffenna. The mansion, located at the center of a large estate, was bordered by the ancient Cassia Vetus, a Roman road built in the 2nd century B.C., known today as "Via dei Setteponti".

In the 18th century, the abbot Silvio Fiorilli wanted a small chapel to be constructed next to the main residence. This place of prayer accentuated the beauty of the garden and gave completeness to the original architectural scheme.

In late 1700, the Fiorillis sold part of their property to the Rosi family. When Sir Francesco Luigi di Carlo, the last heir of the Fiorilli family, died around 1820, the Rosis became the sole owners of the villa. In 1935 Gioconda Carresi Rosi bequeathed her house and the family chapel, together with two farms, to the "Serviti" friars. One year later the religious "House of Saint Joseph at Bel Poggio" was founded.

The House of Saint Joseph mainly became a place of spiritual retreat for the friars.
In 1965 only two friars were living in the villa and the Serviti Order decided to transfer them to other monasteries. For more than a decade or so, the House was occupied during the summer only. In 1987 the Villa was sold to a private family and became a private house.

The current owners began the painstaking work of restoring the Villa in 2003.

Today this elegant period house has once again become what it was since the beginning - a small paradise - to be shared by those who seek rest and simple but elegant comfort in Tuscan hills.
