The Villa

This elegantly decorated villa of 525 square metre with stunning country views is perfectly positioned for those seeking the ultimate Tuscan experience. Bought as the owner’s summer house, Villa Torre Alberghieri combines high standards with a cosy and warm feel throughout. Both sun-filled and green open spaces, high ceilings, a warm colour scheme with contemporary fresco paintings together with old original frescoed ceilings and walls, mosaic and terracotta floors as well as a beautifully designed park with fantastic views make this villa a special find.
Set on 16 ha of private ground in the hills of the Chianti Classico area, just outside the villages Impruneta and Strada in Chianti, it has therefore a variety of traditional Tuscan restaurants, shops and markets on the doorstep. The historic town of Florence is also nearby (30-minute drive) and therefore offers a great opportunity for a daytrip as well as Siena, Arezzo, Lucca and Pisa. The villa is surrounded by a manicured park featuring flowering plants, trees and shrubs, lemon trees and other fragrances of the Mediterranean vegetation.
Fresco dining terraces, a great BBQ corner and a lawn for playing invite the guests and their young ones to relax and enjoy themselves. The highlight however is the tower … needless to say that the 360° views from here are simply breathtaking. The villa’s interiors are decorated in original sophisticated neoclassic style creating a soothing and princely atmosphere with soft and radiant colours and numerous floor-to-ceiling windows. Featuring 5 main bedrooms, all with adjacent bathroom, Villa Torre Alberghieri provides plenty of space for couples, a family or group of friends.
