“Comfortable hotel with views of the old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The hotel is just outside Poppi with views over to the old town and castle. Although it's not easily walkable into the town, we had a good meal at the restaurant (ask for the E15 set menu that is possibly only available to hotel guests).

Although we had paid for a standard (comfort) room we were given a superior room as the hotel was quiet; this was across the front courtyard and was a comfortable modern room with views of the old town (at least in April when there were no leaves on the trees).

Breakfast was a good selection of bread, cakes, fresh fruit salad and yogurt.

The only negatives were that there is some noise from trains (the line runs between the hotel and the town) although I don't think that would be a problem in the main building; and there is air con so you wouldn't need the windows open in summer. Also the wall between the rooms was a bit thin.

We picked Poppi as just a stopover on the way through Tuscany. La Torricella looked good on the websites, but when we arrived, the place was fabulous. Although modern, it has maintained the Tuscan feel and the staff there were so friendky and welcoming,
Our room was spacious and immuculately clean. We also dined at the restaurant that night and it was one of the best meals of our 3 month trip and represented great value for money.
Our single regret...we only booked for one night instead of a week. We will go back there,

Room Tip: It is a little way out of town, up in the hills. Therefore, a car is necessary, Make the effort...

I'd not read any reviews of La Torricella before as my husband uses this hotel when on business and I simply travelled with him on this occasion. However I'm pleased to see the wealth of good reviews for this lovely hotel in the Tuscan countryside. La Torricella has a very good restaurant which is enjoyed by the locals, which is always a good sign. The hotel is on the far side of Ponte Poppi (Bridge to Poppi) which is an area that is not well travelled by tourists. The hotel is charming and comfortable and the superior rooms especially are attractively appointed and in the main a very good size. The majority have a fabulous directly over to the medieval town of Poppi which is really worth a visit in order to explore the small streets, complete with tiny porticos, and especially to visit the Castle where you can enjoy a guided tour.
A great place - very much recommended.

Room Tip: Chose a superior room

The Casentino is a beautiful peaceful valley in Tuscany, undiscovered by most tourists. La Torricella sits on a high point directly opposite Poppi Castle and has a panoramic view which extends to La Verna. The rooms are very comfortable, with air-conditioning and wi-fi. Food, typical of the region, is excellent. Dining outdoors in the evening, the illuminated castle, and your room only steps away--heavenly!! I have stayed here for 3-4 days every summer for the past 5 years and plan to return in 2013.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building, they are beautiful, air-conditioned, and have every amenity you...

Just in front of Poppi castle ( XI century), a great wiew on the valley, very quiet, very good restaurant, very relaxing place where to stay in a business trip, warm staff, not luxury but nice rooms, excellent value/price ratio.

Room Tip: Not in a corner of the hotel if you need WiFi

La Torricella overlooks the Poppi castle from the next hill. ask for a room with that view. Their restaurant is fabulous, large menu of local Tuscan dishes, extremely reasonable prices, warm service. Rooms are good value for their reasonable rates.
