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.
