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,...

This is the perfect place to relax, enjoy the breath-taking scenery, and take amazing short day trips just south of Florence! The farmhouse where we stayed was just perfect and so cute. Although we didn't pay extra for breakfasts, we had fun picking up fruit, croissants, meats , etc the night before in Greve and enjoying our morning meal on... More

Cecilia, rocky & Napoleon welcome you to a little bit of heaven!! We were lucky enough to get a cancellation for our 2 night stay!! It is a little bit out of town & up a rough road but well worth it!! The views from our lovely terrace & the wonderful garden were spectacular!! Lots of nice little touches made... More

Cecilia's lovely property is probably one of if not the best I've ever stayed in. Cecilia is the most perfect host- she made us the best breakfast we had on the terrace (our own terrace looking over the beautiful hills), We had our own little house - cutest thing in the world, with its own stove and everything - everything...

Cecilia has a very lovely, quiet B&B! We spent 5 nights here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the amenities of Podere Torre. Greve is a good place to visit. We stayed here as a base from which to go to other cities and villages. Every evening when we returned it was good to know we could relax and enjoy the town... More

I still can’t believe we found such an amazing place to stay. Greve is a great place to make as your base and travel around to the various villages in Chianti country. Yes, Podere Torre is located at the top of a hill and has some unpaved roads en route, but it’s worth every bump and extra minute of travel!... More

Podere Torre is a wonderful B&B and Cecilia is a wonderful, warm hostess! We were welcomed by Cecilia and her dogs and immediately felt at home. We stayed here for four nights in early October. We stayed in the renovated barn with a small kitchenette and terrace with stunning views of the Tuscany landscape. The first evening we stayed was... More

Podere Torre just might be one of my favorite places I've ever stayed. Between the scenery, the rustic comfort/coziness, the gorgeous pool, the delicious breakfasts, and the amazing hostess (Cecilia!), I can't wait to return. Podere Torre is where you come when you want to experience authentic Tuscany - you will be amongst olive groves, grape vines, and all sorts... More

This place is as peaceful and beautiful as it sounds from the other reviews. Cecilia answered any question I had about anything in Chianti to help us plan our trip. Podere Torre is so quaint and just like you have stepped into a movie set. We only had 1 night there and sadly was bad weather when we arrived but... More
