This is our second time to Torraccia and we will be back again. Beautiful historic grounds, great wine and champagne, wonderful hosts and home cooked Tuscan meals every night. Just can’t say enough about the magic of this location. Thanks for another great stay! See you again.
We spent a wonderful week at Torracia di Chiusi near San Gimignano. The setting is spectacular, up on a hill overlooking the fabulous Tuscan countryside. Everyone there is friendly and generous with their time. (The owners took us on a tour of the place, built many centuries ago, including the tower which is their residence.) We had a five-course meal each night made from food grown--and hunted!-on the property. The one drawback is the long and difficult dirt road but once you get used to it, it's kind of fun. If you come, make sure to stay a few days. They will make you feel at home. And it's close to wonderful places like San Gimignano, Sienna and countless beautiful villages.
This gem of a Hotel is slightly off the beaten path inTuscany but so incredibly Beautiful. If you have never been to Italy it is what you might expect from any romantic Italian movie. Maria is a most wonderful host, Jeff an amazing chef!! All of the staff are great. So much Beauty & History here! Historic as well as wine tours are near by taxi. We came early October, so post high season, but the weather perfect!
Little Paradise on the via francigena hiking route. The staff is wonderful. The food was great. The room was lovely. The place is Magical. Maria is an angel. There really is a Special Energy there. Thank you all. We will come back. This is a pearl in tuscany.
After getting here by rather long, dusty and dilapidated gravel road in schorching heat we felt rather down. But when we saw the place sorrounded by endless Tuscan countryside, welcomed by owners who made us feel like at home, we, well, felt somehow different. And when we dined on their locally made food and drank their wine (Torracia also makes superb wines), we felt like finding a gem hidden deep in the hills, just like Etruscan statue found just below the mansion. And breakfast with unique locally baked bread with local antique yeast, baguettes with sliced tomatoes and freshly picked basil, fresh cheese...well, surprises never end. Situated on the ancient pilgrim Via Francigena, one wonders how many pilgrims in past centuries passed by this place. For the children, very nice and clean pool with a view of San Gimignano, room large, air con working flawlessly, dozens of swallow nests just in front of your room door welcoming you every morning. SUPERB in just the every way.…
We did it again! Unfortunately for only one night, but it was worth the trip anyway. Maria's hospitality, proven good food and wine from local sources, and the rural Tuscan setting. We will be back in time.
We had the best stay here and wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights. The journey there is an adventure up the gravel track and then the gates appear and you enter a place of beauty, peace and tranquility. We were welcomed so warmly and made to feel at home straight away. The pool area is fantastic, the perfect place to cool down on a hot day and also to admire the view of San Gimignano. The agriturismo itself is stunning and has had a lot of love put into restoring it. The owner Stefano gave us a little tour and told us about the history which is absolutely fascinating! I love that the wine now sleeps in an Etruscan tomb! We had dinner there both nights and the food is fantastic! Compliments to Bruno and the staff because the food is full of flavour and so delicious. The wines are also amazing and a great selection to choose from. The second night we asked for the Fiorentina steak which was simply the best steak either of us had ever had! Breakfast is extensive, tasty and the cakes absolutely amazing (and I love my baking). We loved our stay, nothing was too much trouble and we felt so at home we were able to completely relax and unwind. The staff are all lovely and super helpful and the place itself sublime. We are already planning a return visit!…
Stayed as a family of 4 (10 and 8 years old boys) for the half-board arrangement. Very prompt response to email query and over whatsapp, all staff were so warm, responsive, and nice (Maria, Giulia, and madam owner). The view from the outdoor dining space was superb, and children enjoyed the pool. The wine tasting option was a good one to go with the dinner--enjoyed all three glasses chosen by Giulia. Thanks to the hotel team for the hospitality--the highlight of our Tuscan trip was kind people we met throughout.
Torraccia di Chiusi was one of the most amazing places we stayed during our 3-week trip in Italy. As soon as we arrived, Maria the hotel manager welcomed us with open arms. Our room had a beautiful view if the Tuscany wine country and was spotless and very comfortable. We were given a tour of the property which has incredible history by Stephano the owner. We were also warmly welcomed by his wife and co-owner, Donatella. We immediately felt like family. The meals, especially dinners by Chef Bruno and wonderfully served by Giulia were the most amazing in our trip. Giulia is full of personality, always smiling and was so informative and fun. We will definitely be returning to Torraccia di Chiusi! Highly recommended!
This beautiful inn is at the end of a long dirt road through vineyards and other spectacular fields. The rooms are magical, the dining room and food wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's well located for exploring Tuscany but would also be great for just sitting. There are nooks and crannies that make you want to just stay.
