Figline Valdarno, Italy
The Torre is situated in Figline Valdarno, 20 km from Florence, and is easy to reach both by train and car.
Ideally located for visiting the famous cities of art of Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, San Gimignano and Montepulciano. And for the Tuscan countryside, we are on the doorstep of the Chianti region (Greve, Panzano, Impruneta).
Not only art, culture, history and good cuisine, but also shopping with the most important designer outlets in Italy just a 15 minute drive away (Gucci, Armani, Valentino, Ferragamo, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana...).
The Torre is found in the centre of Figline Valdarno, a medieval town which dates back to Roman times, and just a stone’s throw from all the amenities you need - restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, wine bars, cinemas, shops, chemists, banks, churches and the station.
The property is a medieval tower completely refurbished and spread over 4 floors. The suggestive entrance is on the ground floor and boasts great period features such as a marble holy water fountain and a niche with a 18th century Terracotta statue.
The first floor features an open-plan fully-equipped kitchen with a spacious living room furnished with antique pieces including a Monk's table. A bathroom with shower is also on this level.
A mezzanine bedroom with a queen bed is accessible by a staircase from the living room.
A reading room with frescoes walls, a sofa and beautiful views over via Forese is on the second floor.
There is another bathroom on the 3rd floor with the master bedroom on the top floor.
Today Figline has almost 20,000 inhabitants, and is the second most popular tourist town in the province of Florence, because it has so much to offer.
The British singer Sting has a home in Figline, Villa Il Palagio, which he is said to prefer over his homes in the USA and England, and where he enjoys spending time with his wife their children, their dogs, their horses and their mountain bikes.

Taste of Italy
We really wanted to stay somewhere that felt Italian - this was it! This was the tower in a quaint walled town, surrounded by a larger town, 45 minutes from Florence. Easy walk to train going to Florence. Less than one hour drive to Greve in Chianti, Lucca and Pisa. Luca, the owner, could not be more accommodating, greeting us at 3am with a smile, then later giving us travel suggestions. ”
