Outstanding hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took my parents on a trip to Tuscany and couldn't have asked for a better base for day trips and excursions. Il Torriano was perfectly situated for our flight into Pisa (1h30min) and our excursions to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and Cinque Terre. The house and grounds are a 10 minute walk to nearby Monte Firidolfi where there is a restaurant and a 5-10 minute drive to a couple of larger towns with supermarkets (not open on Sundays!)

The grounds were perfectly maintained and the unit we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious for the self catering holiday we wanted. The pool is clean and excellent for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing and driving (remember to get a swimcap somewhere!). We used the barbecue facility 3/7 nights and the grounds keeper very kindly supplied us with offcuts from the vineyard.

Patrizia was the best host I have come across for a while. She greeted us with a big smile and provided very interesting local insights into the bi-annual Palio, history of Il Torriano and introduced us to the very passionate winemaker at La Sala. The grapes growing on Il Torriano is of the best in the region and is used in the wine production at La Sala. Needless to say we bought loads of wine after the excellent wine tasting experience which was accompanied by local bread and extraordinary tasting olive oil (also produced by Patrizia's family).

Our stay there was great value and we would definitely go back, especially after tasting Patrizia's homemade ice cream.

Wonderful rustic apartment in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

What a charming, rustic, clean, and comfortable apartment in Tuscany! Il Torriano proved to be a splendid home base for our family of 4 in the Chianti region . Il Torriano's staff and residents were very helpful and welcoming. It was a little cold during our stay to use the unheated pool. We bought breakfast supplies in nearby Mercatale and did day trips to San Gimignano, Sienna, and Greve/Panzano. The local restaurants and Chianti wines were fantastic -- and Il Torriano grows grapes and olives for a local maker.

Schönes Appartement in toller Location

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 3 Wochen in dieser wirklich tollen Ferienanlage verbracht.

Es gibt gesamt 4 Wohnungen auf diesem Weingut mitten der faszinierenden Toskana-Landschaft. Die weitläufige und ruhige Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und entspricht komplett den Beschreibung sowie den Bildern der Homepage.

Dazu kommt noch ein gute Betreuung seitens der Vermieterin.

Sehr praktisch ist die Nähe zu Florenz und auch den Städten wie Lucca, Pisa u. Siena, die recht schnell zu erreichen sind.

Diese Unterkunft ist sowohl für Paare als auch Familien mit Kindern sehr zu empfehlen.

Nous avons passé un séjour magnifique en Toscane grâce à notre location Il Torriano 2. L'appartement/maison était parfait et en très bon état. Le jardin est magnifique ainsi que la piscine.

L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter Firenze, Siena et tou le pays du Chianti.

Nous reviendrons.

Nice Apartment, Good Location, Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

The simple, yet very comfortable apartment was clean and well maintained. Beautiful classic Tuscany rural setting with a small village (excellent restaurant and a store with some groceries) within walking distance. Good wine and olive oil produced from grapes and olives grown on this farm. Exceptional value. Patrizia was very helpful as we planned our activities. Easy drive to San Casciano to catch a bus to Florence and, from there, train to the major sites in Italy. Yes, see Florence, Rome, Venice, etc. but stay here and also experience the not-so-touristy side of Italy. We enjoyed Saturday night Pizza in the village.
