"We found the owner very helpful and friendly. The property was well described in the advertisement. The approach road was rather narrow at one point and not easy to locate the first time.

Overall we had an enjoyable stay and can recommend it to any others."

Tout à fait magique !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Quelle belle semaine nous avons passée dans le belle campagne Toscane ! Quel accueil chaleureux de la part de la si sympathique Elena ! La tour magique, comme je l'appelle, contient tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour un séjour très confortable. Tout est propre et fonctionnel. Que dire du fait de vivre pour une semaine dans cette ambiance si spéciale qu'il y a dans cette belle Tour du Moyen Âge, rénovée à merveille par le papa d'Elena. Il y a quelque chose d'inexplicable qui se passe à vivre dans ces murs debout depuis si longtemps. Tous les villages à visiter sont à proximité et nous n'avons rien manqué grâce aux bons conseils d'Elena. Chère Elena, merci pour tout et surtout pour ta grande générosité avec nous. Merci à ta maman pour ses petites attentions. Vous connaître fut un réel plaisir. C'est certain que nous y retournerons un jour, avec nos enfants et leurs conjoints.

Au plaisir de revivre ces beaux moments dans cette belle Tour, dans un avenir rapproché.

Séjour inoubliable où le temps reste en suspens ..

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique location, accueil chaleureux, région magnifique, ... Nous n'oublierons pas ce séjour où nous avons eu la chance de loger dans une tour du XII ème siècle, magnifiquement rénovée et aménagée avec tout le confort moderne dans le plus stricte respect du patrimoine toscan. Le propriétaire, menuisier de formation, a fait un travail extraordinaire pour rendre ce lieu accueillant et hors du temps !!! L'endroit est superbe, calme et reposant après une journée de visites; son cadre nous laisse plongé tout le long du séjour, dans cette ambiance toscane si particulière. Le petit jardin est agréable et éclairé le soir, les propriétaires sont d'une discrétion absolue et en même temps très accueillants. Une petite épicerie très pratique et où l'on peut s'approvisionner en pain le matin, se trouve à quelques pas de la tour et aucun problème pour garer la voiture en toute sécurité.

Un tout grand merci à Elena pour sa gentillesse, sa spontanéité, son dévouement, pour la passion partagée de ce lieu magique et pour ses conseils judicieux; nous aurions voulu passer plus de temps en sa compagnie mais la Toscane est grande et il y a tellement de belles choses à voir !!! J'espère sincèrement à une prochaine fois !

Cette demeure très spéciale nous a enchantées. La tour du moyen âge nous transporte dans un tout autre univers. Animé par la vivacité et le dévouement d’Elena, notre séjour fut mémorable. La maison a été restaurée avec beaucoup de soin et la décoration très soignée. Endroit idéal pour découvrir la région. En gravissant les étages de la tour, nous pouvons contempler plusieurs beaux paysages toscans. Les bons conseils d’Elena pour découvrir la Toscane ont aussi été fort appréciés et judicieux. Merci encore et encore.

The Tower is better than ...

  • 5 of 5

The Tower is better than expected. Located in a small typical Toscane village with an unbelievable view of the country side. Well centered in the Toscane region, we had access to all major cities and tourist attractions. You want to get away from it all, the Tower is the place. Very, very quiet. The Tower has been renovated by the owner and it is a pearl. It is fully equiped with all you need for good home cooking with local italian ingredients. We really felt welcome by the hostess. Taking care of all our needs and questions. It is not just about the place, but how you are treated and the people you meet. Tough there is no internet access at the Tower, it did not really cause any headaches. You can always go the local Library or internet cafe. Finally, I would recommend the Tower to all who respect well preserved historical homes, want to get away from it all and treated like a guest. Thank you Renato for your warm welcome and especially Elena and Stefano for everything.
