The estate develops along the right side of the Chiana Master Canal and extends from the Bridges of Arezzo to the Cesa Bridge; the only exception being the Marchesi Capponi property. The Frassineto Estate Farm was part of the Royal Possession until the suppression of the Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1864.

At the end of the 16th century, the central area of the farm was already documented with having five smallholdings on the San Anastasio Plain. In 1808 the entire surface area of the farm was 592,44 hectares, organized in 25 smallholdings. In the years of the Grand Duke, the estate mansion, granary, a church with rectory and farmhouses were at the centre of the estate. In 1867 the estate was demolished and rebuilt as it is today. It has very diverse architectural features and a smaller size, being comprised of an old chapel, a rectory and a farmhouse.
