General


This majestic 17th-century villa overlooks Cetona, a beautifully preserved medieval town roughly half way between Florence and Rome. The house sits in two acres of stunning formal gardens filled with amphora-lined paths, stately cypress trees and rose bushes. The elevated position makes for exceptionally fine views over Cetona and the surrounding landscape.

The villa as it stands today is centred around an imposing stone tower, adding a further fairy-tale quality to this wonderfully romantic spot. The interiors are opulently ornate, in keeping with the heritage of the villa, filled with antique furniture, sumptuous fabrics and even a grand piano. Nestled discreetly in the garden is a private swimming pool, built from reclaimed stone from an ancient Roman bridge and surrounded by decorative fountains.

It’s fair to say that the concept of self-catering would have been quite alien to the original occupants of La Rocca, and whilst the house is fully equipped with a modern kitchen, you can also benefit from a selection of additional services tailored to your own requirements. From cooking and shopping to full catering for dinner parties, family celebrations or a wedding, the experienced staff will ensure your event is as relaxing for you as it is spectacular for your guests. The estate provides a small car and driver, who will transport your luggage through the narrow streets of Cetona while you walk the last hundred metres or so to the villa and get your first taste of the pretty old town that you are bound to want to come back to and explore.

Like most of Italy, the area is well served by gourmet restaurants, with a good choice in Cetona itself. Must-see towns such as San Gimignano, Siena, Montepulciano and Orvieto are within comfortable driving distance for a day out.

Location


The villa occupies a dominating position above the delightful small village of Cetona and is accessed by walking through narrow alleys from the main square. This is one of the loveliest and best known hamlets in the entire region, surrounded by beautiful Tuscan countryside and overlooking the Chiana.

Nearby sites of particular interest are the convent of San Francesco, the Belvedere grotto, and Etruscan Necropolis, and the civic museum in Cetona.

From here it is easy to visit wonderful towns such as Chuisi, Chianciano, San Gimignano, San Casciano, Siena, Montepulciano or Orvieto.

This area is famous for many Tuscan gourmet restaurants.
