Villa della Torre is a unique country hotel of great charm in the heart of Tuscany, cradle of art and culture and enogastronomy. You will be delighted at this historical villa restored from an ancient fortress that still preserves its uniquemedieval tower of the 10th century. Villa della Torre is located on a variant of the ancient Via Francigena, dominant on the hill top facing San Gimignano towers and the Chianti hills. A centre of cultural and political events, it was here in 1220 the towns of San Gimignano and Colle val d’Elsa formed an alliance. It achieved its splendour in the Renaissance when the then proprietor, Paolo Cortesi, one of the most prominent humanists and secretary to Pope Julius II, made his own home and dining hall with the name "Cortesio Castle". The present owners live on the premises and love to share their deep knowledge of the territory with their guests.
