Start with a 700 year-old stone farmhouse in Tuscany that has been renovatd into a first-class vaction villa with beautifully landscaped grounds. Next, add a friendly owner, Gabriele, who provides excellent service to his guests before, during and after their stay. Finally, include a welcome buffet of mouth watering food cooked by Gabriele's mother, and you have Le Torri, a magical piece of paradise in the Tuscany countryside.
Our week stay in October to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary was a true delight. Our one bedroom apartment was very spacious, tastefully decorated, well equipped and came with a view of nearby Castello Poppiano. The welcome dinner buffet was amazing with 23 different platters of food plus desserts and wine. Everything we ate was delicious and plentiful. The optional mid-week dinner was another feast. The food was so good everyone gave Gabriele's mother a standing ovation.
LeTorri is within an easy drive of the sights most tourists come to see such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca, Greve, etc. Gabriele provides maps, suggests scenic routes to drive and offers suggestions for other places to visit. The grounds are close to several good restaurants, but after Mama Cantini's food, you might be disappointed in anything else.
If you are planning to visit Tuscany, you cannot go wrong by staying at Le Torri. Gabriele, his wife, and his parents are delightful hosts and they provide a memorable vacation experience.
