In 1300 an imposing building with a square plan and a mighty tower was built on this strip of land (570 metres above sea level) close to Arezzo, which marked the boundary between the two Italies, those of the Longobards and Byzantines.
The fascinating building of military origin, still visible in the traces of battlements and in a few slit windows, has been carefully restored and transformed into a comfortable holiday villa.
Thanks to this radical renovation the villa Torre di Vignale, that rises up majestically amongst thick oak and chestnut woods, has regained the importance and allure that had been eliminated by time.
The villa Torre di Vignale is surrounded by a large, panoramic garden full of flowers and equipped with garden furniture, barbecue and wood-burning oven. On one side of the garden, above the villa, there is a beautiful swimming pool (9 x 9 m - depth 1,20 - 2,20 m.).
The Villa has been comfortably and rationally furnished, for the most part with antique furniture, adding to the fascination of the house. The owner, Paola, will be happy to prepare meals for guests so that they can sample typical local cuisine.

We enjoyed our 9 days at Torre Di Vignale very much. Everything was as described, or BETTER!!! Ideal for large families/friends who want isolation in the Hills -- 15 minutes from Arezzo--provided you are self-sufficient in the sense that you are happy to cater for yourselves.
We had a lovely time at Torre Di Vignale and were warmly welcomed and supported by the owners.
Fantastica casa; amplias habitaciones, una piscina estupenda y una cocina perfecta para cocinar en compania.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Wonderful house; wide bedrooms, a great pool and a kitchen ideal for cooking all together.
An amazing tower, with beautiful views especially when cooking in the wood oven. Well appointed kitchen and clean bathrooms. Owners were quick to attend to any issue that arose.
Great place to base yourself for a relaxing getaway (especially around the incredible pool), but a little far from major attractions if active holidays are more your thing.
