Description

An ancient watchtower. In 1300 an imposing building with a square plan and a mighty tower was built on this strip of land (570 metres above sea level) close to Arezzo, which marked the boundary between the two Italy, those of the Longobards and Byzantines. The fascinating building of military origin, still visible in the traces of battlements and in a few slit windows, has been carefully restored and transformed into a comfortable holiday villa. Thanks to this radical renovation the villa Torre di Vignale, that rises up majestically amongst thick oak and chestnut woods, has regained the importance and allure that had been eliminated by time.

The outdoor area and the panoramic swimming pool. The villa Torre di Vignale is surrounded by a large, panoramic garden full of flowers and equipped with garden furniture, barbecue and wood-burning oven. On one side of the garden, above the villa, there is a beautiful swimming pool (9 x 9 m - depth 1,20 - 2,20 m.).

Old-time charm and hospitality. The Villa has been comfortably and rationally furnished, for the most part with antique furniture, adding to the fascination of the house. The owner, Paola, will be happy to prepare meals for guests so that they can sample typical local cuisine.

Reviews

 Alice (Sweden) - giugno 2018 We spent a week at Torre di Vignale and loved it. Everything was as advertised. beautiful garden, imaculate interiors, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor patio with barbeque and of course the gorgeous swimmingpool! The views over the surrounding landscape are fantastic. As most other reviewers has mentioned the drive up to the house may seem intimidating at first try but you get used to it, just dont attempt it with a sports car! The owner and host Paolo is wonderfull, charming and helpfull (although her English skills are close to zero, but that is made up by her great attitude). She even prepared a lovely 4 course dinner for our party of 14 at a very reasonable price. The walk down to the village is about 25min (and 35min back up the hill) The village has a couple of trattorias pizzerias, pharmacy, ATM machine and a small alimentari.
 L. L. (Poland) - maggio 2018 Goraco polecam. Odrestaurowany dom z XIIw. Piekna okolica. Cisza , spokój.

superbt!

Det var anden gang, jeg holdt ferie på Torre del Vignale, og denne gang kom jeg med hele min familie bestående af i alt 15 mennesker mellem 78 år til 3 mdr. gammel. Huset er som skabt til vores store familie, alle var lykkelige over præcist deres værelse, nogle var så begejstrede, at de råbte, at de "bare ville have dette hus!!!" Vores aftale med Paola gik helt fint, hun lavede mand på det tidspunkt, der passede os bedst og det antal retter, vi mente ville være passende. Derudover er hun et sødt og herligt menneske. Vedligeholdelsesstanden i huset er fin, dejlige badeværelser og godt køkken (når man har lært at betjene gaskomfuret!). Kort sagt: alle 15 NØD at være i huset og benytte os af alle dets faciliteter. Børnene især poolen.Rose Marie på 7 hulkede, da hun rejste derfra.

Got more than expected

Villa looked really nice, inside and outside. Kitchen is perfect for huge families or groups. Pool and area around villa very nice and relaxing. Couple of minuses - read to villa was little bit complicated and host didn't spoke English, which was little bit frustrating without ability to communicate easily, but he was very helpful and patient to understand us. Definitely would recommend for holidays!

Beautiful, classically Tuscan location - excellent value for money

The location was absolutely stunning, and the house itself was lovely. We really enjoyed the pizza oven and taking in the beautiful views at sunset. The kids had a brilliant time in the pool. The delightful housekeeper popped in a few times during our stay and was very helpful and friendly.
 Robert (Deutschland) - agosto 2016 Alles da, alles perfekt in Schuss, die Vermieterin kümmert sich perfekt um die Gäste.

Perfect

The house and grounds and pool were as beautiful as portrayed- all of our adult children could not stop saying how beautiful and perfect it was. The kitchen is so well equipped and wonderful for several people to be cooking together. Paola cooked a huge birthday dinner for all of us- fabulous. I would suggest a small package of local info- nearest grocery, possible walks near the property, market days in Arrezo. I wold highly recommend this rental to anyone.
 Tobias (Germany) - agosto 2015 Der alte Wehrturm hat den Charme gehalten, den er auf den Bildern versprach! Wir - eine 14-köpfige Familie - haben unseren Aufenthalt dort sehr genossen. Die Vermieterin kam jeden Morgen vorbei und hat sich um den Pool gekümmert und die Pflanzen gegossen, war dann auch für uns immer ansprechbar. Die Zimmer waren alle sehr schön!
 Nick (UK) - settembre 2014 We enjoyed our 9 days at Torre di Vignale very much. Everything was as described, or BETTER!!! Ideal for large families/friends who want isolation in the Hills -- 15 minutes from Arezzo -- provided you are self-sufficient in the sense that you are happy to cater for yourselves.
Schonfeldt Andrew (TURKEY) - aprile 2012 An amazing tower, with beautiful views especially when cooking in the wood oven. Well appointed kitchen and clean bathrooms. Owners were quick to attend to any issue that arose. Great place to base yourself for a relaxing getaway (especially around the incredible pool), but a little far from major attractions if active holidays are more your thing.
