Torre Antica is nicely placed for sightseeing - especially, Florence, Siena and San Gimignano - and although the local town of Tavernelle was not as picturesque as we'd hoped for, the fact that we had a village and shops within walking distance was a bit of a bonus anyway.
The property itself is just outside the village and is very lucky to take all its views from the surrounding countryside.
The accommodation is simple, clean and comfortable and the owners are welcoming and friendly - you get the feeling that nothing is too much trouble.
Cooking utensils and cutlery could have been better quality but were perfectly adequate and probably about what we now expect to find in the majority of self catering apartments in general.
The garden is lovely and it was a pleasure just to sit out and soak up the views with the wonderful scents from some of the flowers and shrubs filling the air.
The 'infinity' pool is adequate for the number of apartments as although the accommodations were full, everyone seemed to being doing their own thing at different times during the days so it never got crowded. It also has the best position at the edge of the garden to take maximum advantage of the views while your swimming.
In all a decent property in a quiet but central location with nice owners and a lovely garden. Just what we were looking for!
