Torre di Ponzano lived up to it's description of "Tuscan farmhouse with all modern comforts set in a panoramic position" in every way and then some. The views of the surrounding countryside were amazing and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Andrew and Alba are perfect hosts and went out of their way to help us with rectifying a... More

Our week long stay at Torre di Ponzano was certainly one of the highlights of our three week trip to Italy. We felt at home at this modernized 1,000 year old villa in the heart of Tuscany. Sonny and Alba were wonderful hosts who happily provided helpful and informative information about the area. We were easily able to make day... More

Sunny and Alba were wonderful. They have great restaurant recommendations and directions. We stayed in the il fienele (private villa). It had an awesome view. Only thing I wish this place had was a breakfast. We had a kitchen in our place so we could make breakfast but I wish they had it at hotel.

We went to Torre di Ponzano for a few days during our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. We stayed in 'Il Fienile' and it was a dream.

I would say that it is the best, but then Sonny would get a big head, and Alba would have to live with that. And we all know how Sonny gets. Of course, I am just kidding. These two are the best hosts we have ever met. The type of people you would like to sit and have a glass... More

I've been to Tuscany 8-10 times over the past dozen years, and have a favorite villa for large groups just down the road. However, for smaller groups, the villa and nearby bedrooms of the Torre Di Ponzano B&B are very, very good. Perfect, really. The location is quite convenient, at halfway between Florence and Siena. The 3-bedroom villa is cozy... More

My girlfriend and I visited in July -- the heat of summer -- and loved it.
