Chianti and South of Siena, Tuscany, Italy
With panoramic vistas across the surrounding Tuscan countryside, it’s all about the view at Villa Torrione. Inside is filled with character and style with wood-beamed ceilings and ornate light fixtures. Sleeping a total of 12 guests, the main villa is split across two floors in addition to an annexe and a spa. The ground floor is home to a uniquely styled kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining room with a long table to seat all guests at once and a TV room for indoor relaxation; a billiard room with a bar completes this floor. Upstairs there are four beautiful double bedrooms with bathrooms en suite.
The annexe offers additional living space for larger groups with its own open plan kitchen and dining area alongside a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, which share a shower room. One of the villa’s highlights is a fabulous spa which features a traditional wooden sauna, a brilliant turquoise Turkish bath and a Jacuzzi. Villa Torrione is perfectly secluded, yet within easy reach of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and Certaldo by car.

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.
But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
