A gorgeous country estate in the heart of Chianti
Back when Florence and Siena were warring city-states, Torre della Guardia was a lookout post in the front-line defenses between the two rivals. Though only fragments of the 7thC "watch tower" remain, the vistas across the Chianti countryside are as remarkable as ever. In the distance, admire the towers of Siena and San Gimignano, while nearby, discover the renowned wine villages of Chianti. Even Pisa, Lucca, and Volterra are possible day trips from this superbly-located villa.
While the villa's historic character and fine décor will charm, you'll also appreciate the many hotel-quality details: comfortable beds, fine linens, and sparkling white bathrooms -- even high-speed Internet access and air conditioning throughout. A convivial, modern kitchen adjoins the high-ceilinged dining room while the elegant main living room opens out to broad terraces. The estate has a working vineyard and olive groves, a large swimming pool and, best of all, breathtaking views - perfect excuses to just stay close to home.
Multiple configurations of the property are available - please contact us for more details on both smaller and larger groups.
