Description

Tuscany 4 bedroom villa with pool and private garden (sleeps 7)

Il Torrino is a wonderful 4 bedroom villa set within a small and perfectly kept Tuscan medieval village and situated atop a hill with stunning views over the Chianti vineyards. Once a Medieval watch tower, the property oozes character and charm, but has been completely renovated to an extremely high standard providing holidaymakers with all the mod cons they could possibly want and need. Outside, the property is surrounded by a large field offering guests complete privacy. Guests also have a private garden equipped with table and chairs and parasol and enjoy use of a shared infinity swimming pool. Inside, the property is set over 3 floors. On the ground floor, there is an open plan living and dining area, a separate well equipped kitchen, bathroom and 2 double bedrooms. A spiral staircase leads guests up the watchtower to a pretty single bedroom. Another spiral staircase leads to a second single bedroom. There is also a 2nd bathroom within the watchtower.

About Jo Mackay

I am a mother with 2 young children, age 8 & 11 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 8 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.

Jo Mackay purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jo Mackay chose Castellina In Chianti

I absolutely love these properties. They have been completely renovated to ensure that guests have all the mod cons people have now come to expect. But at the same time, they have been restored without losing the original character and features of the buildings. The result is a cosy, welcoming and luxurious feel in each and every property, from the smallest 1 bedroom apartment to the largest 4 bedroom villa. Care has also been taken to ensure that each property has privacy, with a private garden area or terrace for each villa or apartment. There is also the infinity pool to enjoy during your stay and the surrounding communal gardens which are immaculately kept.

What makes this villa unique

These properties have been renovated with amazing care and attention to detail. The standard of accommodation is incredibly high and the setting just wonderful. It is a peaceful and idyllic hilltop location in the heart of the beautiful Chianti countryside. But at the same time you're only 5 minutes from the nearest village and the towns and cities of Tuscany and even Umbria are easily accessible. A luxurious base to come back to each day after a days sightseeing in Tuscany... That's if you can drag yourself away from the pool in the first place!!!

Idyllic setting and villa in Chianti region!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 10 days in Italy with our 4 adult children and this was our favorite accommodation. This villa is part of the larger Borgo Pietrofita 'resort' which then allowed access to the pool, daily breakfast in the wine cellar, wine, cheese and olive oil tasting (the BEST!) and the additional help/suggestions from the front desk staff. Jo was also very helpful prior to our arrival in connecting us with a Vespa tour company in town and answering questions.

The watchtower added a fun element to this villa... our 25-year-old son stayed in the top bedroom and our 19-year-old daughter loved the bedroom right underneath ( also in the tower) that had a attached full bathroom. The main level had two beautiful bedrooms, one for us and one for our married son and his wife that were about identical.

lovely Tuscan villa, friendly staff on site

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Castellina In Chianti at your villa at the end of October was awesome. Certainly 5 out of 5 starts; beautiful grounds and view; 5-10 minute drive to Castellina In Chianti, which is a perfect, charming little town; clean, comfortable and well-appointed; friendly and helpful staff on site. I would definitely stay at this villa if I am lucky enough to visit Tuscany again, and I will certainly recommend it to my friends.

Coast/Beach:

The quickest coastal resort to drive to would be Grosseto just over an hour away. There are some lovely beaches here. Alternatively, you might prefer to head inland to Lake Trasimeno in neighbouring Umbria. There are lakeside beaches here and the shallow waters are ideal for those with children. Since the water is shallow it tends to be lovely and warm too! It will take just over an hour to get to one of the main towns on the lake - Castiglione del Lago.

Travel:

Guests have the option of flying into a number of airports. The nearest is Florence, around 45 minutes drive away. Alternatively, for low cost airlines, Pisa and Perugia are around a 90 minute drive. Rome airport is a longer transfer and will take just under 3 hours. The property is in the countryside and, whilst the nearest village is only 4 km away, you will need a car during your stay to get out and about.

Distances:

The property is located just 5 minutes from Castellina in Chianti where there is a good selection of shops and supermarkets. It is also easy to access Italy's public transport network from here allowing you to easily reach Tuscany's main towns and cities such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Montepulciano and Montalcino. Siena is the closest city to the property and is 35 minutes away, Florence is an hour, San Gimignano 45 minutes, Perugia 90 minutes, Pisa 2 hours and Rome 3 hours.

Further Details:

There are staff on hand at the village who are incredibly helpful. They can advise guests on all aspects of their stay from the best restaurants to eat at to arranging cultural tours during their stay.

For those who want the freedom that self catering accommodation offers but who also want some of the perks that hotels offer, it's important to note that breakfast can be provided within the lovely breakfast room within the village. Once an old wine cellar, guests can enjoy a delicious Tuscan breakfast for a small additional charge.

We can also provide a 'chef chez toi' service where a qualified chef will come to your villa and serve dinner in the comfort and privacy of your villa. It's an ideal option for the first night of your stay so that you can relax as soon as you arrive. Guests can choose from a choice of starters, first course, second course with side dish and dessert. Prices are dependent on the number of guests - for 2 people it costs 80 euros per person, for 4 it's 60 euros per person and for 6 it's 55 euros per person. Please ask for further information.

There is a food and wine tasting room within the village that has been recently renovated and is located in the main villa. We can organise wine and extra virgin olive oil tastings along with genuine Tuscan specialties. (Please note that this service is only during high season and on request).

For those interested in attending a cookery class, there are a number of options to consider. A class can either be enjoyed in the comfort of your rental apartment or villa. Alternatively, you could enjoy a class during a visit to either Siena or Florence.
