A luxurious Tuscan villa consisting of 2 separate but adjacent properties, Palazzo Rosadi, for more information please follow this link, and Torre del Cielo, as described below, with the possibility to sleep up to 22 people (12 + 10). Just 3km from the village of Monterchi where Piero della Francesca painted one of his most famous frescos "The Madonna del Parto" near the end of the 1500s. Today this is an important work for art lovers all over the world.
Villa Torre del Cielo
With every attention to every detail, embracing each aspect of modern hospitality, for the complete comfort of guests. The name of this antique building, from the 1600s, comes from it's position: from here you can admire a fantastic panoramic view of the Valtiberina valley and the tuscany hills.
History of the Villa
"Torre del Cielo" was originally a watch tower, built around the first half of the 1600s by Ferdinando II de' Medici and was used by a small group of soldiers to watch over and defend themselves from the arrival of possible enemies.
The tower is one of a series, still present today, built along the border with the Church State to protect the borders from possible invasions.
It is situated at about 2.5km from Monterchi, the last piece of land of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, very close to the border of the Church State and world famous for the fresco by Piero della Francesa of the "Madonna del Parto".
Due to its privileged position (dominating the valley of Padonchia) Torre del Cielo has seen numerous battles over the centuries. As proof of this you can still see the antique slit windows from where the soldiers used to shoot and during the restoration swords and knives were found, showing military activity.
In 1894 Francesco Rosadi, (the year of construction is carved into the fireplace on the ground floor), great grandfather of the current owner extended the original tower, giving it the form and dimension you can admire today.
The Villa has been recently restored maintaining all of the typical features of a Tuscan country house.
