La Torre di San Martino, Panzano in Chianti

Project by La Torre di San Martino, Federica Tison Pandolfini
A 13th-century tower, standing tall among rolling hills designed by the geometries of their vineyards and rows of cypress trees, has been transformed into a luxurious retreat dedicated to those who dream of losing themselves in a contemplative dimension of beauty, silence and slowness. The magnificent isolation of the small rural hamlet is counterbalanced by the vibrancy of its surroundings, populated by travellers from all over the world, keen to enjoy the aesthetic and enogastronomic pleasures of an area preserving an authenticity characterised by its traditions and its residents’ love for the territory. The renovation project, overseen in every detail by owner Federica Tison Pandolfini, respects the spirit of the location and reinterprets it in the name of lightness and brightness. In all the apartments reserved for guests, the floors and ceilings in antique terracotta and wood dialogue perfectly with timelessly stylish furnishing elements that create an intimate and cosy atmosphere. True oases of wellbeing dedicated to self-care, the bathrooms are all different, but united by the unique beauty of some of the most iconic products of the Devon&Devon& Devon collections. These include the neo-romantic Regina (in cast iron) and Aurora (in White Tec Plus) bathtubs, the Season, Double Season and Clarence vanity units, of neo-classical inspiration, the Tiffany and Duke consoles, the Elite marble flooring and Lambris wall coverings, the Etoile sanitaryware and the Dandy taps.
