We stayed here for 6 nights using Torrita as a base for touring southern Tuscany.
The hotel is new (opened in December, 2010) and is a beautiful renovation. Free parking is convenient in the adjacent municipal lot just steps from the hotel entrance.
Immediately across the street is an excellent butcher shop, grocery, and self serve laundrymat.
Rooms are good size and nicely decorated, though slightly spartan (fine with me).
The hotel manager (Christina) and her husband are wonderful people and will go out of their way to help make our stay enjoyable. Christina speaks English.
Ask for a room in the front, if available. The view is one of the best we experienced in Tuscany.
