Property description

A view on a scenic wine and olive oil country. The ancient farmhouse of Augusto and Lele Vitali is an
excellent base from which to explore
the 'heart' of Tuscany. A few meters off the road to the village,
the Torre, facing Radda, stands in an olive grove overlooking vineyards and a small lake. The Torre is 1,5 km from Radda enjoing all the facilities of a charming small village. Siena is approximately 25 km away, Florence 40 km. San Gimignano, Volterra, Arezzo and all the wonderful hilltowns of Tuscany are whithin easy reach.
The Torre offers a two bedrooms apartment in a stone tower redone in 1852 on the original structure. The three story tower has terracotta floors and beamed ceilings, living room,
kitchen with open fireplace on the ground floor, bedroom and bathroom on the 2nd floor, main bedroom on top, connected by a spiral staircase. The swimming pool,
surrounded by a lavender and rosemary edge offers a quiet corner with table and deck chairs. It is located in the garden by the main house where the hosts Lele, Augusto and Enrico are always happy to meet you and be of help.
This is the country of wine,
you will find it everywhere! Here is a place where they will
let you taste a wonderful product, show you how it's done, all the work and passion beyind it. Both Enrico and twin brother Guido produce wine and Extravirgin Olive Oil which is the second main product of our area; the height and climate help the making of an excellent extravirgin product. Our biologic agriculture farm has approx 800 olive trees.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: When Augusto and Lele Vitali came back from Africa, where Augusto, Italian AirForce officer, was the link between Italian and Zambian Government, they were so used to wild nature that could not face life in a town. They started looking for a house in central Italy and finally found and bought Canvalle, an ancient farmhouse dating back to the 15th century. After a 5 years restoration that involved the whole family, they started living their country life and the three sons shared the passion for this region and make their living with the resources of the area. While Enrico is in charge of the Olive Oil production, Lele and Augusto are a helpful source of information, ready to suggest local itineraries, historic sites, cultural activities, markets and restaurants. Augusto is a wealth of knowledge where wild mushrooms are concerned and in the old charming kitchen Lele often receives 'Tutti a Tavola' friends and shares with them her 'family cooking'. Add to all this the silence and peace of the countryside and you will find out how unique it is to discover the genuine flavour of life in Tuscany by being at home in Chianti
