This lavishly renovated tower-turned-villa in Umbria has luxurious touches at every turn. Each guest will find their own pleasure; fitness lovers will hit the sauna and gym and the media room will enchant movie buffs. Bookworms will bury themselves in the extensive English library, while the chef of the family will perfect their pizza at the outdoor stone oven. All this, set above rolling hills at the border of Tuscany and Lazio.

This holiday villa is split between two buildings, with a courtyard between. The original 13th century tower spreads over four floors - to avoid the stairs, choose one of the ground floor bedrooms in the other building. The grounds were designed by a famous Italian landscape artist. Here, beneath a pergola dripping with leaves, you'll gaze out past the infinity pool to mountains beyond. Imagine breakfast on the stone terrace beside the sunroom - perfezione!

Overlooking the national park of Monte Rufeno, this holiday villa is set on a vast estate and is world apart from city life. Still, it's accessible - just 9 km from the A1 Autostrada connecting Rome and Florence. The nearest town is a precious medieval village above the Tiber whilst other idyllic places to visit include Città della Pieve, Orvieto and the wonderful waters of Lago di Bolsena.

Those wishing to explore a little further afield have Montepulciano, Cortona and Siena just over an hour away or take the train to Arezzo or Rome for the day.

Situated close to the Umbrian border with Lazio and Tuscany, Bisenzio Tower overlooks the stunning scenery of the Monte Rufeno national park in Umbria, the green heart of Italy. It's set in a large estate with vineyards, olive groves and an ancient breed of cattle who graze on the land. The on-site farm produces excellent wine, olive oil and high-quality beef, all organically certified.

Indeed, the whole area is a food lover’s paradise. Umbria is home to the world famous salty Pecorino cheese, chestnuts, truffles and crisp dry Orvieto wine. Some of Italy’s finest wine areas are on the doorstep and there are many small family-run vineyards which welcome visitors.

A haven of peace and tranquillity, yet you are also conveniently located just 9km from the A1 Autostrada between Rome and Florence. This means easy access to fascinating places including Orvieto, Arrezzo, Assisi, Cetona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Siena and Spoleto as well as the lakes of Bolsena and Trasimeno.

Rome is two hours away on the Autostrada, and served by regular trains from the local town, which is just a 10-minute drive from Torre. Highlights include the Vatican City, Roman Forum, Colosseum and Spanish Steps.

Florence is about an hour and a half drive away and is also on the train line from the local town. Highlights include the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vechio, Boboli Garden and Pitti Palace.

Siena is an hour and twenty minutes drive away, and again reachable by train. Visit the beautiful Campo square where twice a year (2nd July, 16th August) the world famous Palio takes place – a horse race dating back to the 1600s.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Teens

There are some wonderful walks through the estate, following white roads across vineyards, olive trees and beyond (some of the trails leading to local small villages are better suited to experienced hikers).

There is also horse-riding just 2km from the estate with horses for all abilities; a great way to see the landscapes of his stunning area.

The historic treasures of many of the local towns and villages will delight younger guests. Orvieto is especially beautiful and there’s a map you can download with all the town’s highlights and even playgrounds for little ones. The town’s underground caves are also an exciting place to visit.

You are near some of the great lakes of the area. Lago di Bolsena, for example, offers lake swimming, boat trips, castles, churches and watersports such as kayaking, water-skiing, boating, and sailing.

The nearby Riserva Naturale Monte Rufeno offers wonderful spots for picnics, wildlife spotting, walking and at the far southern end there’s an interesting little nature museum, Museo Del Fiore, which is sometimes open and a great place for nature trails. The fascinating Torre Alfina Castle is also worth a visit in its spectacular setting.
