We cannot say enough about how amazing our stay was at Le Torri. We are so happy that we decided to book for three weeks at Le Torri because it was even more wonderful than we had imagined. It was like a second honeymoon. The facilities and the location were more relaxing and romantic than we could have hoped for and from the moment we arrived, Gabry and his family made us welcome and at home. This wonderful villa offered an unparalleled view of the Tuscan hills from a spotless, well equipped and roomy apartment. On a clear day we could see the snow capped alps while we were surrounded by olive trees and grape vines just beginning to show their first spring flush of leaves. And oh the evenings as dusk settled in and the night slowly blanketed the valley, it became a photographers dream location.
The free welcome buffet on Saturday and the optional Wednesday night supper (well worth the price) were absolutely the best food we had in Italy bar none. We had planned to partake of only one Wednesday night supper during our three week stay but after the first one, we couldn't resist and opted to attend all three. No where in Italy will you find food that is better than at Le Torri.
The thoughtfulness and attention to detail that this family has put into this villa cannot be overstated. Orange and lemon trees, flowers and statuary, a pristine pool, barbeque, walkways, laundry facilities, private baths, spotless grounds, comfortable beds, fluffy feather comforters and ceiling fan in the bedroom (and my personal favourite, the chickens).
This villa could not be more perfectly located and was a short trip to so many places that are must see locations. As we planned our days, Gabry had suggestions of what to see, provided a map, highlighted the route, and told us the best place to park.
At the end of a day of touring, the folks staying at Le Torri would gather around the pool to relax and exchange travel and sightseeing tips, and before we were even settled, Gabry had set up the umbrellas and chairs and lounges for our comfort and relaxation. The welcome supper on Saturdays and the convivial atmosphere created by Gabry introduced us all to each other and made the environment even more welcoming and friendly. Gabry never seemed to stop working to make everyone's stay perfect, so we were glad to see he took Sunday off to rest and spend time with his lovely wife and adorable daughter after having ensuring everyone was settled in on Saturday and full up with food and wine at the Saturday night welcome buffet.
If Le Torri itself weren't enough, Gabry will direct you to the local farmers market on Monday in the community of San Quirico, a short stroll away. The people of San Quirico were wonderful and helped us decipher our way through choosing food to stock our fridge in the apartment. You will love the farmers market, the selection from the mini-mercato (not your local 7-11), the wonderful gentlemen and the selection of quality meat at Chiappis, and the good humour and charm of Roberto and Donella at the fruitivendelo (try her fresh baked Tuscan bread).
We had originally planned to go to Rome, but were so enamoured of this location that we decided it could wait. We will be returning soon to Le Torri and thank this wonderful family for their hospitality and commitment to excellence. Five star hotels could take lessons from Le Torri. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay with you. Tina and Garry.
