Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family including three grandchildren stayed at Casa Della Torre for 2 weeks at the beginning of August 2012 and we all had a really wonderful time. Whilst the accommodation as described on the Web site is outstanding with every little amenity provided the thing that really made the stay so enjoyable were the owners Alfiero and Rena. Without intruding they were on hand to help and advise whenever needed and nothing was too much trouble for them to make our stay an enjoyable one.
The house is located in the heart of the village and not far from the piazza and Bar Marina. It has a small patio area out front with chairs and table, where we have enjoyed many a glass of local wine. One important facility is the automatic washing machine that was a life saver when staying with children.
The area is exceptionally beautiful and not too difficult to reach by car being approximately 10km from Pescia.
We clearly enjoyed our stay as we went back in November 2012 and plan another stay in April 2013.
