Torre di Volpaia is a lovely Tuscan villa located in the heart of Volpaia, one of the most beautiful Chianti villages. It is part of an original watch tower which provides the villa with plenty of character.
The villa is divided into two suites, it is entered up some stone stairs and passing under a pretty loggia. Inside there is a small hall, off to the right there is access to the first of the suites. This has a simple semi-circle lounge which is located in the tower section. From here there is access to the loggia. It has a high roof, and tiny peephole windows. It's furnished with a double sofa and TV.
From here it is open into the kitchen up some steps. This room has a typical rustic Italian style kitchen and is fully equipped. It includes an oven, gas hobs, fridge with small internal freezer compartment. In the centre of the room is a lovely wooden table. There is access to a courtyard furnished with tables and chairs to dine al fresco. The courtyard is protected and overlooked by the two neighbouring villas. From here there is a lovely view of the Chianti hills.
Off the kitchen is a small corridor which leads to a small bathroom with shower. At the end of the corridor is a large double bedroom. This has a large bed with a lovely wooden headboard with a pretty design. Matching the headboard is a typical chest of drawers. Double wood and glass doors lead out to the courtyard.
From the entrance of Torre di Volpaia there are stone stairs to the left up to the first floor and second suite. On this floor is an open plan room with a small kitchenette against the far wall. This is well equipped and includes an oven, gas hobs and a small fridge with little internal freezer compartment. In the centre of the room is a wooden table with four chairs. On the opposite side is a traditional wooden sideboard. In one corner is a double sofa. The room has plenty of character provided by the original wooden ceiling, and a terracotta floor.
Passing under an arch to the back of the room is access to the large bathroom with shower, and a second double bedroom. This double room is made with two single beds so it can be converted into a twin, if required as a twin this must be requested when booking. Completing the furnishings of the room is a large wooden chest of drawers and wardrobe with mirror. The room has plenty of light from the two windows.
Terracotta stairs lead from the living area to the last floor. On this floor is the spacious twin bedroom. It has a beautiful pitched roof with wooden beams and terracotta tiles. In one corner is a light coloured wardrobe, to the other side are the two single beds with bright covers. The window looks out to the courtyard.


There is a little café and two restaurants in the village. Torre di Volpaia is to the back of the village so not disturbed by these.
Both doubles can be converted into twin rooms, if twin rooms are required please request this when booking. The twin room cannot be made into a double.

Pros De ruimte in het huis.
De ligging van het huis: rustig, mooi, prachtig uitzicht.
Cons - De oven in de keuken op de benedenverdieping werkte niet; - Op het terras staat een buitentafel met 4 stoelen, terwijl het huis verhuurd wordt voor 6 personen; - De boiler voor warm water (badkamer en keuken) op de eerste verdieping werkte niet altijd. Dit probleem was bij onze aankomst al gekend: men raadde ons aan om bij koud water op een rode knop van de boiler te duwen om warm water te genereren. Maar dit werkte niet. Gevolg: een aantal keer douchen en wassen met koud water.
Local attractions Vespa huren in Radda, Restaurant Officina della bistecca in Panzano, Sculpture Park in Castelnuovo Berardenga.

Thank you for your feedback. The oven has been checked and is working fine. The owner apologises that you were not shown how to work it. They would have happily helped if reported to them at the time. There are 4 more chairs in the kitchen which can be used on the terrace also.

Pros What a fantastic place! It was a beautiful apartment within a very beautiful working village in the Chianti valley. We were there for a week and by the end we felt like we were part of the village. The apartment was beyond expectations and the keyholder was readily available and assisted us whenever we required it. We felt like we were in paradise. If we didn't actually live in Australia we would be seeking to return here on an annual basis. We all agreed this was the highlight of our month in Italy.
Cons Nothing was a problem
Local attractions All of the different hill towns like Radda, Castellina and Panzano. It was so centrally located in the Valley we felt able to travel around to see these things and yet spending time in Volpaia was probably the best of all. A visit through the winery in the village is exceptional. The café and the restaurant in the village were both charming and the food and wine was superb. It was difficult to drag yourself away from these two venues in Volpaia because they were so superb.
