Le Torri is a great find. My husband, 2 year old and I spent a week there in July 2008.
It is up on top of a hill with graet views outside.
We stayed in apartment no. 9. I think the other apartments were nicer... better air flow patterns in theirs. Ours had a disabled access bathroom which was nice, but not nearly as swanky as the other ones. It was much bigger than it looked like in the pictures. There was a 4 burner stove, fridge, and dishwasher. The bed was nice and big.
Gabrielle was very helpful with us in makign plans and helping us call and cancel a credit card almost right when we got there. He was also WONDERFUL with our almost 2 year old son. He was gracious and accomodating towards him. He even set him a place at dinner even though we only paid for 2 people. It was very sweet.
Sign up for the dinner! It was 28 euros and worth every penny. Gabrielle's mother is a great cook and we had a feast. It was a beautiful location, amiable other guests, and fantastic food. The welcome dinner was also fantastic. We were able to try many different dishes, get to know the other guests, and had plenty to eat.
Great location to get into Florence but still be out in the country. We went to Florence 2 times while we were there. 10 minute car ride to the bus stop and then an easy and inexpensive bus ride into Florence... judging by the traffic we saw it was the way to do it. We also went to San Gimignano, and Montegnano from Le Torri easily. You do need a car if you are going to stay there.
It is an easy walk into the town to a little coffee shop, a butcher, etc. There is a bigger grocery store in Montespertoli if you need more... Not as nice/big as others we were in in Italy but adequate.
The pool is nice and there is a part of it that is more shallow that our son was able to stand up in. The grounds are lovely with lots of little places to sit in shade. Le Torri felt a little more up-scale and reserved than the other agriturismo we did. Not quite as much rowdiness at the pool, etc. But, definately space to move around.
No reservations in recommending Le Torri.
