Villa and Pool for 6 on the edge of a village : Tredozio, Forlí

Good to know

  • This property has final cleaning costs to be paid on site. See below the calendar for details.

Torretta lies just beyond the northern border of Tuscany, on a slope above the elegant village of Tredozio. It's a charming house with space for 6 people, a private swimming pool and in the lucky position of having a village within easy walkiing distance. Once a farm tower, it is still owned by the same family that had it built, who also owns a fabulous "Palazzo" in the village, with gardens listed among the "Grandi Giardini Italiani" where concerts and tours are hosted in summer.

As a guest of the family, they will be happy to show you round their 17th century residence, and the gardens, a wonderful and personal insight into the historic residences of Italy. The village of Tredozio itself is charmiing, important enough to have a Michelin starred restaurants yet quiet enough to allow for a relaxed pace of life.

The walk into the village takes around 10 to 15 min, with a bakery at 750m, and bars and restaurants around 1km away. The walk is downhill into the village, so will be uphill on the return trip.


French doors on the two longer sides of the tower house provide entrance to the groundfloor. That at the front leads into a living room with a comfortable sofa and armchairs, views over the verdant valley and doors to a shower room and a compact but well-equipped kitchen. A second door from the kitchen leads to a dining room whose table for 6 faces a French door opening to the stone patio at the back, furnished with wicker sofa and armchairs for outdoor living.

Sleeping accommodations are on the upper floors, the first floor of which is reached via the external staircase at the side of the house. Off the entrance hall is a study with satellite TV and a sofa-bed that can be requested should an extra guest join the group. Also on this level is a lovely double bedroom with an ensuite shower room. As in all the Torretta bedrooms, the rustic charm of its beamed ceilings and exposed stonework blends beautifully with country antiques and attractive soft furnishings. And internal staircase leads from the first to the second floor where two further bedrooms, each which an ensuite shower room, can be set up as either doubles or twins on request.

As comfortable as guests will be inside, there is much pleasure to be had out of doors. Dining al fresco can take place under the shaded pergola overlooking the valley or in or beside the stone annex in the garden. But the swimming pool set slightly higher than the house in a wonderfully panoramic position with sun beds and deck chairs on its flagstone surround cannot help but draw. Whether it’s for a refreshing dip, a holiday tan or meditation on the beauty of the surrounding hills, this is definitely a place to linger.

“ Right size, right layout and the right distance from town. ”

We had a great time at the villa. It was perfect for us. Right size, right layout and the right distance from town. All super clean and tidy.

Supplies when we arrived was a nice touch.

A particular standout point was the local team all of whom were really good, they did everything we asked in terms of restaurant bookings, bike hire etc.

The pool was perfect.

It’s a great location.

Around Torretta

This area is one where visitors can discover an authentic experience of living in Tuscany and neighbouring Emilia Romagna, both renowned for excellent food and wine.

A ten-minute walk from Torretta leads to the charming village of Tredozio with bars, restaurants and small shops like a bakery. In the village you will also find the 17th century Palazzo Fantini and its beautiful formal Italianate garden, today the residence of the Torretta owners and the site of summer courtyard concerts. During their stay at Torretta guests are invited to tour the palazzo garden and, should they wish to explore their surroundings, a guide will help them organize a full-day tour of nearby towns and a local winery.

Local artisans have made venturing down the road a delight – there are cheese makers and vintners, shoemakers and ceramicists, and a rich culinary heritage that ensures any lunch stop along the way is a delicious one. Faenza offers a world-famous ceramics museum and production, while a bit further towards the Adriatic Ravenna are the world’s finest Byzantine mosaics outside of Istanbul. From here one can head on to coastal resorts or venture inland to the medieval city of Bologna, which combines arcaded elegance with the lively buzz of Europe’s oldest University city. Equidistant to Bologna is Florence, the Renaissance gem that sparkles along the Arno.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
