The Villa dates back to the 11th century and was built as Guard Tower, hence the stunning panoramic position. It was bought by current family in 1988 and turned into the comfortable most elegant family home it is today.
It is surrounded by olive groves, lemon trees and beautiful gardens created by famous Italian landscape gardener Pietro Porcinai.
The interior has been sympathetically renovated by current owner, a skilled interior designer, who mixed antique original pieces with modern designs (and comforts) while fully preserving the original character of the house.
The result is a sophisticated, warm and welcoming home, true to its heritage.
On ground floor youâ€™ll find an elegant sun lit living room/drawing room with fireplace, a formal dining room also with fireplace and a breakfast room. The living room features large glass doors leading to a truly stunning terrace with unbelievable views (ideal for sipping cocktails while enjoying the beautiful sunset).
A fully equipped kitchen, a utility room and a service bathroom complete the ground floor.
On first floor there are 3 bright elegant double bedrooms, all air conditioned and complemented by 3 full bathrooms (the large master bathroom feature also a Jacuzzi tub).
The bedrooms are all individually styled and furnished with very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are finished in marble.
On first floor there is a further lovely reading room or study.
All luxury linen is of the highest quality and all owned by us â€“ we wash and iron everything ourselves, in house, and this makes a big difference!
Breathtaking uninterrupted views of the Tuscan countryside can be enjoyed from every room of the house.
Every room is individually decorated to extremely high standard: original Biedermeier pieces of furniture, rare empire paintings, magnificent mirrors, handmade linen curtains, large comfy white sofas create a bright sophisticated atmosphere throughout. â€¨
A magnificent stone built gothic arch dating back to the year 1300 create movement and defines the different living areas. Sand stone floors, walls finished with Venetian plaster in pastel hues ooze Italian craftsmanship and complete the truly unique decorating scheme. â€¨
The outdoor area is just as beautiful as the interior. Villa Torre il Fico sits in 10 hectares of private parkland with olive groves, flowering shrubs and landscaped gardens and enjoys incredible views over the Tuscan hills.
The Villa has a private salt water swimming pool measuring 14 m x 8 m, open May to September (inclusive) and 300 olive trees giving us some lovely oil - we love harvesting time!
All outdoor areas are furnished with elegant outdoor furniture (comfortable loungers with white cushions and white umbrellas are in the pool area, BBQ and dining tables and chairs are on the terrace and patio).
