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

We had the best possible experience at Torre di Ponzano. Our hosts Alba and Sonny were over the top wonderful!

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

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.
