Medieval tower in Pratovecchio with panoramic terrace - ideal for a romantic holiday immersed in history
The medieval watchtower of Ponte sull'Arno is located at the gates of the medieval town of Pratovecchio. Built by the Guidi Counts in the mid-11th century, it is the first historical building that together with the ancient walls encircled the village of Pratovecchio.
Here, it is possible to spend an enchanting stay immersed in history: after a careful restoration it was realized, in fact, a beautiful independent residence equipped with every comfort and air conditioning. The medieval tower is spread over three floors on a surface together with the terrace of about 100 square meters. The access is located on the 1st level through the typical wooden staircase (33 steps) and leads into the hallway equipped with clothes hangers and entrance into the master bedroom (20 sqm) with majestic walls cleverly built and restored, enriched by decorations that recall the feudal period. In each wall of the cozy room there are the typical loopholes overlooking the Arno river and the garden. Inside the room access to the private bathroom (4 sqm), built respecting the architectural forms of the structure and provided with toilet, bidet, shower and antique marble sink. From the hallway a staircase leads to the living (28 sqm) very bright with antique sofa, armchairs, TV SAT, dining table with four chairs, closet and characteristic wooden kitchen equipped with: fridge-freezer, dishwasher, oven, two burners and antique marble sink.
