My wife and I spent the first four nights of our honeymoon here, and though the views, the villa, and the location were spectacular, it was the owners, Sonny and Alba, that made Torre di Ponzano a memorable experience. They were, from the moment we arrived, gracious and helpful and hilarious. They gave us wonderful recommendations for dinners, for walks,... More

I have still got this on my mind: a beautiful sunset over Chianti hills, a glass of good wine and Sunny (host) playing a piece Satie on his piano.. is this still reality?.. luckily there was a low tractor noise from the fields to keep it real ;) We stayed 3 nights at Torre di Ponzano and had a wonderful...

We enjoyed speaking with Sonny, hearing him playing piano for us, his life and his hobbies etc The room (number 2) was big and comfortable. Nothing to add We did enjoy this moment - the best of...

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Torre di Ponzano and wish we had stayed longer. Sonny and Alba are incredibly friendly and welcoming. They go above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable and having a good time in Tuscany. Sonny made us dinner reservations and Alba gave us directions to the places we wanted to... More

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

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.
