I had stayed at Torricchi previously, but in a different property managed by the same person (Steve). I must admit I was a little apprehensive about staying in this particular property after seeing one of the reviews regarding the comfort of the mattresses. Steve was really helpful when I contacted him; he reassured me that the previous mattresses had been... more

What a fabulous location...close to San Gimignano and Volterra. We were provided with detailed instructions not only regarding navigating to the property, but also helpful 'hints and tips' about car hire, supermarket shopping and generally about etiquette in restaurants. Good communication from the owner. Excellent accommodation furnished very tastefully. Plenty of recommended restaurants locally which we enjoyed too. Only niggles... more

Thank you for your review, I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay there. The views and pool are certainly something special so I am glad you enjoyed them. I have received information from another guest about the intermittent internet. This was a newly installed system this year (April) so the equipment has now been exchanged under warranty... more

We spent six nights here. Although the location of this holiday rental is very good that was about it. The photos show a view of the Tuscan countryside from the apartment . Although it is all around you cannot see it from the villa as all the shrubs and trees have grown to block the. view. The mattress on the... more

Management response:

Thank you for your review, I am so disappointed to hear that the apartment was not up to the standard you expected. I will personally speak to the cleaning team as blocked showers (the water is extremely hard here so the showers need regular descaling) are unacceptable as is dust in the apartment. I have had no other complaints about... more
