In a fairytale landscape
Villa della Torre is a large, historic estate halfway between Florence and Siena (22 miles each), perched on a hilltop amidst a lush green countryside. This location is outstanding: From the garden you can enjoy stunning views of the gentle rolling hills, vineyards, olive trees leading to the extraordinary ancient towers of San Gimignano in the distance. The valley below is of rare beauty.
The antique tower dates back to around the year 1000, the villa itself and the adjoining buildings to the middle of the 18th century. The massive walls, high wood-panelled ceilings, arches, wall friezes and wall frescoes, stuccoes and hand-painted ceilings in some of the rooms enhance the special atmosphere of this ancient house.
Once used as the summer retreat for a Florentine family the villa has now been carefully divided into holiday apartments. All the original materials have been preserved or harmoniously matched with contemporary equivalents during this restoration that converted this grand Villa into different apartments. The individual rooms are designed to preserve the elegance of times past and, at the same time, provide comfort for present-day guests.
All apartments have retained a charming ancient character due to the original antique furniture. Tuscan colored walls, terracotta floors, beautiful mirrors with gold-painted baroque frames create a charming atmosphere resonant with history and art.
This estate guarantees a lot of privacy: altogether the apartments occupy an area of 900 m2 and each has its own outdoor area. The lovely outdoor spots are located either in the large garden, under the old holm oaks, on a terrace or in an inner court at the rear of the villa.
The beautiful classical Tuscan garden with hand-carved stone balusters is laid out on the south side of the villa. Rosemary and lavender bushes line the path to the large and elegant pool, which is spectacularly located on a plateau of English lawn and sits high above the valley. Even when swimming in the pool you can savour the enchanting view of one of the most beautiful Chianti valleys. The panoramic view is magnificent, maybe even unsurpassable. And to add to your pleasure, the park and the pool are romantically lit in the evening. It may sound exaggerated but we want to say it: you can feel the surface of the globe here!
Location of the apartments:
Four apartments are located inside the villa (Torre, Affresco, Caminetto and Terrazza). Other four (Oleandri, Le Volte, Cortile and Nido) are located in adjoining buildings at the rear of the villa (not towards the garden). Two apartments (Giardino and Bellavista) are located also in adjoining buildings but are in the garden of the villa.
Outdoor areas of the apartments:
Each apartment has its own private outdoor area: Torre, Affresco and Caminetto inside the garden in front of the villa; Giardino and Bellavista just in front of the apartment located towards the garden; Terrazza has it's own private and panoramic terrace; Oleandri, Le Volte, Cortile and Nido have their outdoor area outside the walls of the villa, in the separate inner court with well - Oleandri and Le Volte just in front of the apartment, Cortile and Nido just a few steps down (approx. 5 m distant).
Villa della Torre is an active "Azienda Agricola" and cultivates the neighbouring fields. You may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the Villa and taste the Chianti wine, olive oil and superb grappa produced by the farm. The farm organises wine tastings free of charge in the nearby wine cellar, and the recently awarded Super Tuscan wine is excellent.
This remarkable property is also a breathtaking wedding venue: what better place to welcome eternal bliss than at this heavenly hilltop villa that sweeps the sky? The property features a summer kitchen and a hall perfect for large receptions.
