La Torre alle Tolfe (Villa)
La Torre alle Tolfe is a third-generation, family-run estate close to the medieval city of Siena. At the heart of the estate is the 8th Century hilltop tower, or Torre, together with the villa and restored farmhouses set in landscaped gardens. From the surrounding farmland the Castelli family produce organic wines and extra-virgin olive oil.
A number of other former farm buildings in the estate have been converted to charming apartments, well-appointed and with wonderful views over the adjacent countryside and across to Siena. The entire estate is managed by the Castelli family with a close-knit team, many of whom have spent much of their lives working on the property.
With their staff the owners form a close-knit community. Three families in particular make up their key workforce and have contributed greatly to life at La Torre alle Tolfe for decades. More
