Nestled in beautiful Umbria, Torre Chianina is a picture of Italian elegance set in the green heart of Italy. On the border of Tuscany and the Monte Rufeno National Park, seven kilometres from roads to Rome, Florence, Siena and the renowned Chianti wine region, this beautiful villa is both incredibly well-connected, and a reflection of the calm, authentic charm of the rolling Umbrian countryside.
Life at this estate is about indulging in the finest parts of rural Italian life: landscaped gardens and private heated pools made for long lazy days in the sun; large well-equipped kitchens inviting guests in for relaxed family-style dinners crafted from the organic produce of the estate; a seamless blend of history and authenticity with contemporary comfort and style. The estate is situated on the grounds filled with olive groves, vineyards, a herd of historic Chianina cattle, and an organic farm producing local fruits, vegetables, olive oil, and wine.
The estate, once a historic customs post, has been carefully restored to return it to its place in the local community. The villa, which consists of the main villa and a charming guesthouse, retains original 13th and 17th century architectural features, while providing contemporary amenities and style an elegant blend of tradition and modern luxury. Each room has been individually renovated, wooden beams framing a beautifully curated collection of modern furnishings and accessories.
Inside the main house and guest house, a total of eight bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, have been carefully restored using local materials. Wooden and tiled floors, ancient beams and delicate paint and plasterwork sit alongside beautifully integrated modern technology and contemporary luxury fittings. In addition to multiple bedrooms, the main house includes a state of the art kitchen, a prestigious dining room, a comfortable lounge, a billiards room, and television room. The guesthouse provides an additional kitchenette and living room with television. Separate, yet connected by a pretty courtyard, the two houses offer as much privacy or community as desired.
The phenomenal estate sits atop a ridge on the Umbrian-Tuscan-Lazio border, a wide rural panorama spreading out below the windows and terraces. Expansive views towards Orvieto and Tuscany form a magnificent backdrop to daily dips in the heated pool, or alfresco dinners accompanied by the quiet natural music of the Italian countryside.
