OVERVIEW Torre alle Tolfe

Crowning a hilltop in the world-famous Chianti wine region and only three kilometers from stunning Siena, this former watch tower has been converted into a magnificent 17-bedroom organic wine estate. The enchanting villa, nestled within graceful Tuscan gardens and surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and woodland, offers sweeping views of the picturesque countryside and the skyline of Siena.

The expansive villa is ideal for groups, as all its bedrooms are in a similar style and importance in addition to having private bathrooms. It also has a wonderful variety of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces among which are rooms designed for meetings and other functions which have played host to family reunions, weddings, choral groups, yoga retreats and professional seminars. Guests are welcomed with great warmth and gentilezza and the owner and staff will do all they can to make you feel comfortable. Lovely people, relaxed atmosphere, professionality.

You can spend leisurely days soaking up the sun next to the 17 x 6m pool, taking in the spectacular panoramas from the shaded garden nooks, strolling through the manicured garden or playing a game of tennis or bocce. The well groomed, formal gardens are perfect for strolling and enjoying the incredible vistas of the Chianti hills and the rooftops and church towers of Siena. An avenue of regal cypresses extends from the villa. You can wander further afield on the property, through the groves, vines and forest, thanks to a series with tracks and paths. Along your way you will encounter the lovely flora and fauna, including a variety of birdlife and other small animals. The larger ones like deer, wild boar and porcupine usually remain hidden out of sight.

Inside the villa, relax in one of the two comfortable sitting rooms or stroke the keys of the Steinway grand piano or pick up a cue in the billiards room. The interiors stay cool in summer thanks to the traditional, thick stone walls and remain cozy in winter with the help of a large open fireplace. Your group can either have delicious regional cuisine prepared by the villa's catering staff in its modern and well-equipped kitchen or prepare meals on your own (the assistance of one staff member is required and is an additional cost). Meals can be savored in the elegant dining hall or at one of the various outdoor loggias which adds an element of fun to your meals and your overall experience at this exquisite Tuscan retreat.
