BISENZIO TOWER

Orvieto Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 18 guests, 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms

Bisenzio Tower is a former customs post which once guarded the Umbrian-Tuscan-Lazio border. Now a luxury home for holiday rental by its owners, it sits astride a ridge with stunning views over the hills and valleys towards Orvieto and Tuscany. The tower was built in the 13th Century and the rest of the buildings added in the 17th Century.

Bisenzio Tower has 8 en suite bedrooms laid out over two buildings, separated by a beautiful courtyard.

The gardens which surround La Torre are truly delightful. These stunning terraced gardens were created by the famous Tuscan landscape designer Alberto Margheriti. Numerous sitting out areas offer great views over the hills and valleys below. Lavender, jasmine, rosemary, thyme, sage, roses and even a sweet curry leaf plant all flourish in the sunshine.

A gazebo complete with stone built barbeque and pizza oven is the perfect place for a lazy lunch or romantic evening dining.

The large heated infinity pool has the same magnificent views…..perfect for evening dips under the stars and a grandstand view of the fireflies?? firework displays in early summer.

And for the even more energetic, the gardens include a shady boules court.

About Oliver's Travels - Italy

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care.

Situated on the Umbrian border with Lazio and Tuscany, Bisenzio Tower overlooks the stunning scenery of the Monte Rufeno national park in Umbria, the green heart of Italy.

In Umbria on the border with Tuscany, and on the edge of the Monte Rufeno national park, Bisenzio Tower is a haven of peace and tranquillity, yet conveniently located 7km from the A1 Autostrada between Rome and Florence.

This means easy access to fascinating places including Orvieto, Arrezzo, Assisi, Cetona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Siena and Spoleto as well as the lakes of Bolsena and Trasimeno.

The organic farm is home to rare breed cows and pigs and a small flock of sheep. It grows its own fruit and vegetables, produces olive oil from 650 olive trees, wine from its young vineyard, and even high quality saffron.

The whole area is a food lover’s paradise - Umbria is home to the world famous salty Pecorino cheese and crisp dry Orvieto wine. Some of Italy’s finest wine areas are on the doorstep and there are many small family-run vineyards which welcome visitors.

- Rome is two hours away on the Autostrada, and served by regular trains from the small town of Fabro, which is just a 10-minute drive from Torre. Highlights include the Vatican City, Roman Forum, Colosseum and Spanish Steps.

- Florence is about an hour and a half drive away and is on the train line from Fabro. Highlights include the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vechio, Boboli Garden, Pitti Palace.

- Siena is an hour and twenty minutes drive away, and again reachable by train from Fabro. Visit the beautiful Campo square where twice a year (2nd July, 16th August) the world famous Palio takes place – a horse race dating back to the 1600s.

  • Catering and Services

    - Housekeeper Cynthia is a great cook!

    Cynthia came to Italy from Manila in her native Philippines 20 years ago. She met her husband Lamberto (who looks after the gardens at Torre) and settled in the nearby hill village of Allerona.

    Cynthia will make lunch for guests using fresh ingredients from the gardens and the locality. One of her specialities is Parmigiana, a dish of shallow fried aubergine layered with cheese and tomato sauce and baked in the oven. Another is ribeye steak simply cooked on the barbecue and served Italian style with a squeeze of lemon juice and salad.
