Country house Torre Incantata
Torre Incantata is the result of the care for detail for every aspect of modern hospitality the complete comfort of the guests.
The villa was originally a lookout guard tower, built about the first half of the 1600 by Ferdinand II of the Medici, used by a small group of soldiers to guard against the arrival of the enemy.
Its position is about 2,5 kms from Monterchi, the last piece of the land of the Granduke of Tuscany, close to the Papal State and world famous for its frescoes by Piero della Francesca the Madonna del Parto.
The villa has recently been restored, maintaining all the characteristics of a typical Tuscan country house, provided with a big swimming pool (depth 1.50 mt, 6 x 12 mt.), for moments of refreshing relaxation in the summer season.
It is surrounded by a large garden which offers a panoramic view over the Valtiberina and the Tuscan hills.
Moving to a slightly lower garden level a delightful patio can be found , provided with “al fresco” dining table for 10 people.
The 2 hectar garden is looked after with great passion by the owners. There are olive trees, biological peach and plum trees, to which the guests are invited “to help themselves”.
For sport lovers there is a small football field (for 5), a ping pong table and lovely long walks through the oak woods which surround the property. Torre Incantata is the ideal location for an unforgettable holiday in the middle of the Tuscan countryside.
The villa is 250 sqm and before we go inside we would like to admire the original structure from the outside. The form, as well as the material used, are typical of this area. Stone is the dominating material, but also wood plays its part, as does the wrought iron used in the outside furniture.
The windows have been modernized, but the style fits in well with that of the villa. Some of the original wooden doors on the inside have been restored maintaining the original style.
