Our 25th Wedding AnivPosted Mar 12, 2015
Cons: More furnishing
Location: Excellent location. Nothing to do near by . . . and that is the wonderful thing about it.
This place is number one. We will be comparing other places we stay with Torre di for the rest of our lives. We are world travelers for many, many years. We plan a return trip to Florence next year (for a month) and not only plan to stay with these folks, but also to entertain friends who will be staying in the area. It is an understatement to say that it is a “step-back-in-time”. It is so unique an experience that your dreams are even different while staying here. I don’t require much sleep and was often awake in the early hours of the morning. One of my most enjoyable memories was to stroll the grounds, with a glass of house wine, at 3:00 in the morning. To see the city below and the rolling hills is better than anything that can be man created. You must put this on your list to enjoy before you use all your time up with lesser adventures. Kind personal regards to all, Bruce, exq

Step back in timePosted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: Only a short drive to Florence but were away from it all with beautiful views over Florence.
Location: Quiet country retreat away from the bustle of Florence steeped in history quiet unique
Only spent one night there as we had picked up a car and wanted to be out of Florence for ease of parking. I loved the hotel it was so old and the gardens were lovely and the views over Florence spectacular. Our rooms were clean and grand in size. Being so old it did not have the advantages of modern hotel the bathroom was small but the water pressure was good which surprised me. My husband didn't like it as much he prefers the comforts of a modern hotel, although he liked the garden and view. Overall we both enjoyed our short stay our only criticism was the breakfast was very basic and ordinary . It was a wonderful experience but one my husband was pleased to have enjoyed for only one night while I could have happily stayed longer

Beautiful placePosted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Grand, fabulous architecture, superb location within Florence, exquisite politeness from staff.
Cons: A map of Florence upon arrival. Better breakfast. Staff knew we walked to and from the city x 6 but only we were told about the short cut as we left.
With amazing views, superb gardens and an extraordinarily stunning property, this is where your money is being spent. The breakfasts are not good value, the bacon is far too salty and the scrambled eggs are like rubber. Just add some milk! There should be a chef on site to cook in the evening as the meal we had ordered in for us in was rather luke warm and ridiculously expensive. The hotel should provide a map of Florence upon arrival for all guests, especially the ones who decide they are going to walk everywhere and not take the taxi up and down the steep hill. And in this knowledge that we were walking it was rather disappointing to find from the front desk (a different receptionist) as were leaving with our suitcases that there was a short cut to Florence through the gardens. Maybe this calibre of hotel should offer a car shuttle service as well as the previously mentioned kitchen. The garden should be lit at night time in order to make the most of them.

Antica dimora piena di fascinoPosted Jul 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Incantevole villa, perfettamente conservata, con tutto il fascino dei tempi passati. Incantevole la vista dal giardino e dalla piscina sulla città di Firenze. Personale molto attento e disponibile. Una location assolutamente raccomandata, soprattutto per gli estimatori delle tradizioni storiche

A wonderful and charming villa-hotelPosted May 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
I loved this centuries old villa. The grounds are splendid and offer respite from the craziness of the city. Breakfast outside on the terrace with a delicious cappuccino is serene. The views of the city from the hotel grounds are the best. The dinner provided by a local trattoria delicious. I hope to return. Not the place for the traveller who wants all things modern.

Ancient torre with best view of FlorencePosted May 23, 2014
A historic building with magnificent ceilings and tasteful antique furnishings. Splendid views over the beautiful garden and Florence itself. Peace apart from the noise of the swifts flying overhead, after the tourist mayhem of the city. it felt as if one was in the country but it was a very doable walk down a steep track into town through the fields and vineyard. Our stay was perfect.
