Amazing Tower! Amazing Setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly amazing tower in an equally amazing setting--and with a wonderful host. If you've ever dreamed of being the king of your own castle, lord of all you can see, this is your chance. The tower sits at the top of a steep hill, above the enchanting village of Montecatini Val de Cecina. Every floor has astounding views of the town and countryside, with Volterra visible across the valley. The roof terrace is simply jaw-dropping. Each room is great, with stone walls and vaulted ceilings. The village is a picture-perfect Tuscan hilltop town. There is a very good restaurant and two shops for basics in town, with another very good restaurant a few minutes drive away. We were the only Americans around, and almost the only tourists. The host, Luca, was wonderful. From leaving us wine and breads to giving us a detailed tour of the tower and grounds to answering all of our questions, Luca did everything a great host could to make us feel welcome. When issues arose Luca was quick to drop everything to solve them.

Since this a very tall tower, with each room separated by a long and enclosed staircase, it is perfect for parties seeking privacy from one another. It may be a challenge for families with young children or people who have trouble with stairs.

I hope to return to the tower someday soon!

Luogo unico e fornito di tutto la Torre dei Belforti è adatto a tutti: famiglie coppie e amici. Se volete stare in una torre questo è il luogo che fa per voi!!!

The attractions of Montecatini are the same toure my marveilleuse campaigne, villages and small towns all around. The restaurantes are very good and economic, not praising the sea and very pretty. Montecatini is secret, not for touring, but for the people who lover authentic things.
