The beautifully restored Villa Torre is composed of two buildings: a magnificent tower and the original hay barn connected by a glass corridor and rented as one independent villa.

The villa, with a separate studio apartment at pool level and seven double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, can accommodate 16 guests. A very well equipped large kitchen, large dining room and several living rooms complete the interior. An assortment of furnished outdoor areas and an al fresco dining terrace will entice guests to linger outdoors.

A typically Italian garden, with lawns adorned with roses, jasmine and indigenous plants and flowers, offers guests different areas to relax in with complete privacy. The infinity swimming pool and its separate jacuzzi overlook the amazing Chianti countryside.

Vineyards, changing colors with the seasons, and the silhouettes of the towers of the San Gimignano skyline guarantee beautiful views for complete relaxation under the Tuscan sun.
