Villa La Torretta is a charming stone villa, hidden in the Tuscan countryside and surrounded by incredible landscapes. This special property was originally built as a watchtower in the 13th century and later expanded upon. It belonged to one of the most prominent families in Tuscany, the Tommasi family, that included Giovanni Battista Tommasi who was the 73rd Grandmaster of the Order of Malta. From the villa, you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Valdichiana valley, all the way to the town of Montepulciano, famous for Nobile wine. It is just a short 10- minute drive to the Etruscan hill town of Cortona, where you can spend time strolling through the narrow streets, discovering the many boutique shops, wine bars, and wonderful restaurants.
The villa is laid out on three levels, with 4 double bedrooms and 3 and a half bathrooms, comfortably accommodating 8 guests. The ground floor has a large, open living room with a beautiful fireplace, as well as the kitchen, one large bedroom, and one bathroom. Heading upstairs you will find on the second floor two additional bedrooms, one with a lofty 4-meter high ceiling and two bathrooms, one of which is ensuite. The top floor holds one bedroom and a half bath. Just outside of the main entrance of the villa there is an area to dine, perfect for enjoying an aperitivo or a delicious Tuscan meal.
The villa has a wonderfully curated garden with a variety of beautiful and rare flowers, a hidden pond, and a private swimming pool surrounded by hedges, so you can freshen up with a cool dip while gazing at the view over the valley below. There is space to lounge by the pool, sit outside with a glass of wine and spend time with your family and friends. You will have complete privacy in this unique setting, for a relaxing escape to Tuscany, all while maintaining easy access for exploring the nearby area!
