Torre del Drago is a historic watchtower from the year 900. It was once a guard to mediate between the castles of Conte Cuide in the southern and northern part of the Casentino valley. The tower has been restored in a charming villa rental receiving guests from all over the world.


The tower offers 4 different levels. From the beautiful garden you have direct access to the ground level where you´ll find a bedroom with double bed and small bathroom (WC and sink). Watch out for the beautiful original red bricked vault. All walls are made of nature stones building a harmonic picture and is a perfect locaton for peaceful sleep.


A small way leads to the backside of the tower from where a small external staircase leads to the first floor: here is the furnished kitchen with a table for 4-5 persons. The kitchen is completely equipped with dishwasher, stove, refrigerator and plenty of kitchenware, pots and pans for preparing a delicious tuscan menu. On request the villa owner prepares a typical tuscan dinner with starter, first meal, second meal and dessert.


On the left corner a staircase leads to the next floor with a single bedroom and a beautiful bathroom equipped with shower box, WC and sink. The tower has a central heating system in every room and can be booked therefore also in the period from november to april. The beautiful village Strada can be reached within 10 walking minutes and here you´ll find shops, restaurants and a lovely market each monday. From the central market daily buses bring you directly to Florence and Arezzo.


An internal staircase leads to the last floor. Here you´ll find a bedroom with double bed and bathroom. The front wall is beautifully painted by hand. From the small windows you´ll have splendid views into the tuscan nature. In a short distance you can enjoy a perfect view to the castle of Poppi with the well known tower. Thanks to the thick stone walls the temperature in Torre del Drago is very pleasant and never gets really hot.


The private garden is located behind the tower. Here a covered stand with tables and banks is the ideal place for outside meals. You are also welcome to use the grill and prepare delicious barbecued tuscan meals.


Only 40 metres away lies the big private  swimming pool with pleasant sunshine all day long georgious views. At the pool area you´ll find sun lounges, chairs and sunshades.

Guest comments Torre del Drago (1)

Nicole van den Wittenboer, Sale, United Kingdom

We absolutely loved our stay at Torre del Drago. It was even more beautiful than we could have hoped for after seeing the photos online. The accommodation was beautifully decorated, comfortable and cosy. The bunk beds were great for our two boys (8 and 10) and the interconnecting floor levels really worked for us. The garden and pool were really private and perfect for our family holiday. We loved sitting on the swing bench and admiring the view over the rolling hills and Poppi in the distance at all times of the day, listening to the various church bells, and the crickets at night. The owners were wonderful and left us various little gifts. The booking process went really smoothly from start to finish. It was great to be able to check our booking details at any time and it was very useful to receive a reminder by e-mail a couple of days before our holiday.
