General


Conversions can be a tricky business: overdo it and you’ve lost the charm of the place, but skimp on the mod cons and all that effort is wasted. Happily, the owners of Villa La Torre have got it absolutely right, and this top-notch property lets you share in its wonderful history while enjoying its very stylish comforts.

With its grand proportions and elegant décor, Villa La Torre would make a spectacular base for a family gathering or special occasion. The accommodation is spread between the substantial main house and a convenient guest suite, complete with two bedrooms, a living room, bathroom and kitchen. You can all eat together around the grand main house dining table (seats up to 12), or on the beautiful dining terrace adjacent to the pool, which would be an unforgettable spot for a celebration birthday or anniversary meal. All the rooms are furnished and decorated to the high standards of a smart, country house hotel, with the added benefit that you have use of all the excellent facilities – including a sun room, small spa and billiard table – entirely to yourselves.

Villa La Torre is enviably secluded, with private enclosed grounds encircling the house, sheltered in turn by a tranquil green valley. The estate once belonged to a noble Tuscan family and today produces three grades of high quality red wine, which you are encouraged to learn more about at the cantina, and of course to sample!

This is a quieter area of Tuscany, well off the main tourist route, with many small towns nearby where you can eat and shop like a local. Tuscany’s artistic and architectural power houses are also within easy reach.

Location


Located in a lesser-known part of Tuscany relatively untouched by tourism, this historic private estate once belonged to a noble Tuscan family associated with the Medici, and has been an important part of the local heritage for centuries. Today the estate produces three grades of high quality red wine and guests are encouraged to visit the cantina and learn more about wine production and sample the wines produced there. Guests at Villa La Torre are welcome to walk the estate roads and enjoy the countryside and the lovely views.
