Villa Tintoretto, Italien, Toskana, Provinz Arezzo, Monterchi, 6-10 Personen
Villa Tintoretto was originally a watch tower, built in the first half of the 16th century by Ferdinando II de’ Medici and used by a small group of soldiers to watch and defend against possible enemies. The soldiers could communicate with the other towers to the right and left of the tower, using mirrors or smoke to make signals. Later on, in 1894 the family , extended the original tower, building the current house.
The whole property has been recently restored maintaining the typical features of a Tuscan Country House with swimming pool (11 x 5,5 x 1,50h ) in a cypress and olive grove with stunning views south across the valley towards the lush green tuscan hills, from the beautifully landscaped terraces.
