Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Il Torrione is an ancient Tuscan villa dating back to the 1600s situated in a beautiful, peaceful position in the green valleys between Siena and Arezzo. The indoor areas of the house are very pleasantly furnished. Outside there are wrought iron tables and chairs and a barbecue for eating “al fresco”, as well as areas where guests can relax under the shade of centuries-old trees, and a large 10 x 20 m swimming pool (max. depth 2.5 m) which is shared with Villa Cavaliere. The two properties are around 100 meters apart but are completely independent from each other. Large groups can book both villas together with a 5% discount.
The villa is located in a strategic position that is very convenient for visiting the most important art cities of Tuscany such as Florence, Siena and Arezzo, which can be easily reached by car or by train from the railway station at Bucine which is 5 Km away. There is a food store and restaurant 1Km away in the small village of Badia Agnano. Bucine has a variety of different stores.
On request, it is possible to organize suppers, lunches and cookery courses focusing on Tuscan cuisine, as well as visits to the local wineries to taste their products, or to the outlet stores of many famous Italian high fashion brands such as Prada.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
