Wonderful Property

There were 4 of us (two couples) sharing this spacious, modern and comfortable apartment. Great views and a great home base for our tour of Tuscany's various towns and attractions. Wendy and John are excellent hosts. Highly recommended!

Our time at the tower could only have been better if we were able to stay longer! Absolutely amazing. Can't wait to get back, and will definitely recommend it to friends and family thinking about visiting that region.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was exactly as described...great location in Tuscany for exploring towns, close to restaurants,a bank,a grocery store, a winery, and shops, very comfortable, and a perfect spot to enjoy Tuscany. John and Wendy were very helpful and gave great recommendations. We prepared several of our meals at the apartment, and even entertained a couple from Massachusetts that were in the apartment next door. The views from the tower and living room window are awesome. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our visit to Tuscany and stay at the Tuscan Tower. The apartment was just a gem and a pleasure to stay at. It is definitely as beautiful as you see in the pictures, and the views from the tower and the sunset is just beyond words. John & Wendy were very helpful with all the information and tips about the area, and we definitely took advantage of all the info and recommendations. The town is so centrally located that we were able to spend 8 days in Tuscany and made day trips to the different parts of the region. Our 1st visit to Tuscany was definitely a memorable one and we are very thankful to John/Wendy.

Tuscan Tower

  • 5 of 5
Last fall we stayed at the Tuscan Tower. This wonderful
apartment is in an historic building in a wonderful tuscan
hill town. We felt like locals. The best feature is the roof top
terrace which overlooks the hills of tuscany. The sunsets
are incredible, and so great after a day of exploring. Many
wonderful towns are easy day trips. We were most happy to have also been close to Umbria. We visited 3 towns in
this area and really fell in love with Umbria. Great local
grocery in the little town, as well as a couple of nice
restaurants. Loved this place and would return.

Fabulous stay in the tower

  • 5 of 5
The website pictures of this beautiful apartment don't come anywhere near doing this place justice. Everything was gorgeous and the owners' have thought of all of the little things to make the stay comfortable. Extremely comfortable beds and and linens, big, thick towels, well stocked kitchen with all the appliances, dishes, etc. that you could possibly want. The design of the space needs to be seen to be believed. The view from the tower is also unbelievable. The apartment is extremely well laid out for two couples traveling together. We had comfortable, spacious areas to visit together as well as ample privacy when desired. We especially appreciated that the owners left very clear, detailed instructions on how everything works, including the internet access. The little town is lovely, easy to get to and the locals were so friendly. We enjoyed a local dinner that we could just walk to and the ladies at the little grocery store just down the street were friendly and helpful. There is a bancomat just a block away. We were able to drive right up to unload and then park very close by - for free, which is a nice thing in little Italian towns. We appreciated (and enjoyed) the owners' recommendations on places to eat, shop and see. This is the ultimate Italian experience with all of the comforts of home.

Torre Monefollonico is in small hilltop village of Montefollonico within 15 minute drive of Pienza, Unesco Heritage site and Montepulciano, two of the best regarded Tuscan towns. While the apartment is in the village and provides the convenience of 5 minutes walks to 4 great restaurants including the NY Times reviewed La Chiusa and ATM, Pharmacy, and food stores, it has a pastoral setting. You will hear sheep bells and watch sparrows wheel about from your patio. We are close to many fabulous walks where you can walk for miles through olive trees and vineyards. Near Monte Oliveto, Bagno Vignoni, Moltacino.
