About the villa
With gorgeous rural views, which get better with each flight of stairs, La Torre looks down over grassy slopes and terraces, sprinkled with trees and forming a cushion of peaceful privacy. A long flight of stone steps lead down from the villa to a lovely pool and poolside pergola, set amid lawns and screened in greenery for a sense of seclusion. But in fact, the tower house is just five hundred metres from shops and trattoria in Cetona’s cobbled streets, its vine-shaded terrace furnished for al fresco dining, with the medieval Citta della Pieve framed in an enchanting backdrop. From the terrace, doors lead in to a country kitchen and delightful living room, designed with arty rusticity and bright with kilims, cushions and pictures. An open-tread spiral staircase links the tower’s four levels, and there is one bedroom on each of the floors above, all simply furnished with a touch of romance. Ideal for a group of friends or for families with older children, La Torre could be booked together with an adjacent property, La Torretta, to accommodate additional guests in a fully self-contained villa for two.

The rolling, strangely haunting scenery of the Val d’Orcia is the backdrop to many a Renaissance painting. Its cypress-studded ridges form one of the iconic modern images of ‘classic Tuscany’. The towns are a delight for architecture buffs: the Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano and Pienza; the Romanesque Collegiata in San Quirico d’Orcia, hewn entirely from honey-coloured travertine. Cortona clings to the side of a mountain overlooking the Valdichiana, looking out to Lake Trasimeno and neighbouring Umbria.
