Well, what can I say apart from what an amazing week we had at Torre di Ponzano. We stayed in one of their smaller rooms (number 5) and it was plenty big enough for the two of us. A super comfy bed, aircon, a good shower and a very quiet fridge - all in a well refurbed to an original... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Torre Di Ponzano after a recommendation from a family member. We were made more than welcome on arrival and during our stay. Sonny and Alba booked vineyard tours for us, made restaurant reservations and shared their local knowledge of the area. The pool is a great place to cool down after a... More

This was our first holiday without the kids. Had a great time here expploring the countryside. Sonny and Alba could not be more accomodating or helpful. Loved the extra little treats! I'm sure we will be back at some point.

Stunning view over the Tuscan countryside, every morning looking out of the window was beautiful. Really quiet, relaxing atmosphere, perfect for us as a young couple with friendly guests and the best hosts you could ask for. Sonny and Alba are very generous with their time and advice for things to do in the area, just don't have a game... More

This review is a long time overdue as we first visited in 2011 and then again in 2013 and had the most wonderful time on both occasions. On our first visit, we stayed for a week while exploring Tuscany for the first time and chose this due to its great reviews and central location. When we arrived after a two... More

We came to know about this gem completely by accident. A friend who was visiting Tuscany, chanced upon Sunny who took him over to see Torre di Ponzano. Suitably impressed with the wonderful property and fabulous views, a year or so when we were planning our trip to Tuscany this friend tells me to check out Torre di Ponzano. We... More

7 years on, I still have such magical memories of our stay here. My husband and I stumbled upon this beautiful spot by accident in 2007, long before we were using tripadvisor! Of our 2 weeks in Italy, our few days here were definitely the most romantic, most authentically Italian and most memorable. We had planned only a one night... More

It was my fourth time that I was staying here and it was perfect as always. Torre di Ponzano is a beautiful villa on the top of hill with great views all the way to San Gimignano. It is located on halfway between Florence and Siena, and between Chianti and San Gimignano, making it the perfect location for exploring Tuscany.... More
