VILLA DELLA TORRE - CHARMING HOLIDAY APARTMENT WITH POOL IN A GRAND VILLA

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Certaldo - Villa Della Torre

Apartments for 2+1 or 4+1 people, romantic garden and wonderful panoramic pool

Villa della Torre is a large, historic estate perched on a hilltop amidst a lush green countryside, in the most coveted region of Tuscany: half-way between Florence and Siena (22 miles each). The apartments are an atmospheric ambience designed with loving care for details. The romantic garden has manicured lawns. Rosemary and lavender bushes line the path to the large and extremely elegant pool, which is spectacularly located on a plateau of English lawn and sits high above the valley - from the water your view will wander across the rolling hills of the Chianti region to the famous St. Gimignano... Enjoy your vacation in this grand villa and forget Florence, the Uffizi, the Palazzo Pitti - all you need is this panorama! The next restaurant is in walking distance. The villa's location only 7 km from the railway station of Certaldo is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car.

Please ask for the link of our home page to receive more information. Thank you!

Further Details: In and next to an 18th century villa with tower dating back to the year 1000. The authentic and individual character of the house has been well preserved. 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; each has its own outdoor area, either in the large garden, under the old holm oaks, on a terrace or in a small inner court at the rear of the villa. These lovely outdoor spots are separated from each other, thus guaranteeing a tranquil and very private atmosphere. The beautiful classical Tuscan garden with hand-carved stone balusters is laid out on the south side of the villa. Even when swimming in the pool you can savour the enchanting view of one of the most beautiful Chianti valleys.

Location: A family-owned Tuscan restaurant with a nice patio, a small alimentari (corner store) and one of the oldest churches of the region are within walking distance (approx. 800 m). (Bring a torch if you like to walk - as the street to the restaurant is not illuminated). In the proximity of the villa there is a great variety of small trattorias and specialty restaurants - each night you can dine in a new place (we will provide you with tips for this region). 2 km away you can find a grocery shop, a butcher, a pharmacy, post and a nice breakfast bar; a big supermarket, all necessary shops and several restaurants are in Certaldo, 7 km away. 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.

Day trips: Villa della Torre is a perfect starting point to explore Tuscany: situated in the heart of Chianti, it is a short drive to Florence and Siena. The villa's location only 7 km from the railway station of Certaldo is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Certaldo (free parking behind the railway station) and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1.5 or 2 hours). The train ride takes 50 minutes. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station 'Santa Maria Novella' to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 3 km from centre, and you have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill. One hour of driving takes you to the sea.
