Barberino Val d'Elsa villa description

We present the beautifully restored Villa Torre, comprised of two buildings. A magnificent tower and the original hay barn, connected by a glass corridor but rented as one independent villa.

The villa, with a separate studio apartment at pool level and seven double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms can accommodate 16 guests. A very well equipped large kitchen, huge dining room and several living rooms complete the interior offering and an assortment of furnished outdoor areas and al fresco dining terrace entice you to linger outdoors.

A typically Italian garden, with lawns adorned with roses, jasmine and indigenous plants and flowers offers our guests different areas to relax in with complete privacy. The infinity swimming pool with its annexed jacuzzi overlooks the amazing Chianti countryside.

Vineyards changing colours with the seasons and the silhouetted towers of the San Gimignano skyline on the horizon, guarantee complete relaxation under the Tuscan sun.
