“Extraordinary Experience”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is a very unique accommodation. It is in a very, very small town (the 4 of us referred to ourselves as "the tourists"), but so quaint, and so convenient for day trips to the sea, to Volterra, or to Lucca, and most any place in Tuscany is within a 90 minute drive. The super-historic building has been masterfully re-designed in style.

The Tower is correctly advertised as a 2 bedroom / 2 bath accommodation, but there is another double bed on the living room floor, separated by a room divider, and another small bathroom on that level, which, in the right circumstances allows for up to 6 guests. All of the beds are on separate levels, with the kitchen on its own level, so there is plenty of privacy as well. The rooftop offers its own unique ambience!

Luca was so helpful in getting us acclimated to the area and its history and made us feel welcome, for sure. We spent 5 nights here, and it was terrific. Even though it was the off season, we found plenty to do, but you definitely need a car with an experienced driver, because climbing the hill to the tower in a modern car on a medieval road is not for amateurs. We were entirely comfortable, and anything we asked for was supplied immediately. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and one of the most memorable stays in decades.

“Unique accommodation in beautiful landscape”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Belforti Tower provides excellent accommodation. It is truly unique and is a great opportunity to re-live a piece of history. Luca, the owner, is generous and welcoming, and always on hand to provide insight into local history and to recommend interesting places to visit. The village itself is friendly, and the local restaurants and bar are very pleasant. This is an area of great natural beauty. There are also very interesting towns and villages to visit within a short distance. It is excellent for cycling, or simply relaxing in the warmth of the Tuscan sunshine and the pace of life in Montecatini.
