Antico Borgo La Torre

Address: Località la Torre, 172, 50066 Vaggio FI

Welcome to Antico Borgo La Torre, this is where we host all of our art retreats. A converted farmhouse and winery set in the Tuscan landscape, surrounded by vineyards. Located in the region of Chianti, just 25km (30 minutes by train) from Florence.

 

Originally a medieval tower, Antico Borgo La Torre dates back to the middle ages. Most likely part of the fotification of the nearby feudal Castle of Viesca, which was located in the hill north of the property. Only sporadic ruins of the Castle now remain, covered by a forest, but the medieval tower 'La Torre' still stands today as part of the recently renovated structure.

In later centuries, the farmhouse became one of the properties of the noble Medici family, whose descendants remain the present owners. Now an agriturismo, Antico Borgo La Torre produces it's own wine and olive oil. It is made up of 32 hectars of land, which include olive groves, vineyards, woodland, orchards and walnut trees.

The Bedrooms

Antico Borgo La Torre is made up of 9 one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments. Every bedroom has it's own bathroom and every apartment has it's own spacious living area and kitchen.

Tuscan food

Our meals are mostly vegetarian and made up of sesonal, fresh, Tuscan ingredients. Red and white wine is grown and produced right on site and included for you throughout the week, it's particularly refreshing after a long day of painting 😉

 

We share meals together in our large dining room or outside on the terrace when the weather is nice (which it usually is). We can also cater for vegan and gluten free diets, let us know in advance.

Art studio Tuscany

Our 145 msq studio is full of natural, as well as artificial light, with plenty of space for 17 students and 2 models. The studio is always open, so you can choose to practice your art after class hours whenever you want.
