My wife and I stayed here for (only...) 3 nights. We found Agroturismo Podere Torre through TA, and once again we were rewarded! So many great reviews (and the complete absence of negative ones) couldn't be wrong. This small agroturismo is fantastic! Only 2 rooms, and one more under construction, exquisite scenery, a warm welcoming host (Cecilia), great home-made breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed at Cecelia's for 1 night and regretted not staying longer. Her B&B had an authentic Chianti feel to it. Cecelia and her son were very welcoming. We had dinner at her friend Lorenzo's and that was one of the best meal we had in Italy. Lorenzo and his family were excellent hosts. Thank you Cecelia... More

This is a very rustic bed and breakfast, way up high in the hills, overlooking the countryside, vineyards and olive trees. The room was very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was nice and the shower nice and big! Cecilia suggested that we take a cooking class at a neighbourhood farmhouse, Lorenzo's...it was wonderful! I would highly recommend this... More

Fantastic views from the terrace. A bit difficult to navigate the road up the hill, but well worth the effort. We stayed there a week and loved every minute. Main Piazza of Greve was 10 minutes away. Bus to Florence also 10 minutes away (1 hour to main train station and most attractions). Cecilia was a great host and very... More

Tranquil location about 2 miles up a gravel road from Chianti. What a beautiful place. Swimming pool, ping pong table, a shared kitchen and fire place for your use. Next door is a family owned winery that offers private cooking class.

Cecilia and her farmhouse was such a treat. She is extremely friendly and had a very big role in making this part of our trip one of our fondest memories. We stayed in the self catering unit - the Barn. It is very well equiped and we had such a comfortable stay there. The farmhouse has an amazing view (when... More

I had one of the best if not the best holiday of my life in Podere Torre - Everything about this place is just divine! I stayed there 10 days and could have stayed 10 more! The organic olive oil farm is located at the very top of the hill/mountain so you overlook the splendid landscape of the Chianti region.... More

I stayed this wonderful B&B from July 2 for 4 nights. It was rather far from the downtown Greve-in-Chianti, but absolutely perfect Agriturismo. Lovely hostess Cecilia. Environmentally well-controlled swimming pool. Great scenery. Delicious breakfast. I also never forget the wonderful dinner on first day of our stay Cecilia prepared for us, because a restaurant she reserved for us was not... More

Words cannot describe this place, you have to try it. We stayed 3 nights and it was an excellent place to relax after visiting Rome, Pisa and Florence. Nice view, clean room, very rich breakfast, very quiet, friendly customer service... 10 out of 10.

Never has a place felt so perfect, exposed every sense to a new fulfilment and changed your understanding of a way of life you only ever dreamt of experiencing. Not only is this the most beautiful of settings but Cecilia, her family, her neighbours are the perfect accompaniments. From my first e-mail enquiry Cecilia was prompt in her response, pleasant,...
