What you hope about Toscany,it is there!
It was perfect.
They are an enchanting family and a delight to host. They left the property in perfect condition and have already recommended us to their friends.
Everything a Tuscan retreat should be!
Although the pictures and description do their best, there is really no way to convey how special Torre di Sopra is. The restoration of the watchtower and surrounding building and transformation into a home is exquisite. The care taken to incorporate original frescos that date back well over 500 years is fantastic. All of the different outdoor areas and the pool were wonderful areas to spend the early morning and then the evenings.
The location was easy for day trips to Chianti, Florence, Lucca, a train to Venice, and Cinque Terre.
We had two families, a total of 9 people, with kids ranging from 11 to 16. Everyone loved it and the pool was a perfect ending to every day's adventure. The sunsets over the countryside were picturesque.
The house and grounds are very well maintained and the owner helped us secure a cooking class at the house which was a highlight of the trip!
We would certainly go back again!
Thank you for being such charming guests and for this lovely review!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and very much look forward to welcoming you back another time soon.

Beautiful Property, amazing vacation, wonderful hospitality
The pictures don’t do the property justice—it’s absolutely stunning, from the pool and garden surrounding it, to the historic wall frescos and unique layout inside the watch tower. We comfortably slept 10 adults and 2 kids, with plenty of space for all. The side casita was perfect for the family that was with our group, giving them and the kids a little privacy while still being part of the larger property.
The property owners were incredibly accommodating, hospitable and responsive. To make our trip extra special they connected us with a private driver for a wine tour and day trip to Lucca, made dinner reservations for our first and second night there, and helped to coordinate a private chef to prepare dinner at the property on our last night for what ended up being the perfect cap to an amazing stay. They were quick to respond to all of my questions and made planning the details of the trip easy.
The location was great—an easy 20-30 minute cab ride from Florence and central for day trips to other towns and wineries. I’d recommend a car for quick trips into town. There is a market that’s easy to access by car (less than 10 minutes away) along with shops and restaurants.
Highly recommend a stay to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation at a unique Tuscan property. While there’s lots to see in the area, make sure to save a few days for relaxing by the pool. The grounds and the garden are stunning.
Thank you for your lovely comments - and for being such super guests!
We are so thrilled you enjoyed your stay and the house and garden, and we very much hope to get to welcome you all again.
With all our best wishes,
Camilla and Jane
Vaut le voyage!
Nous avons vraiment beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à la Torre. Nous y étions avec notre famille élargie, composée de 13 personnes! Chaque famille était très bien installée, avec sa propre salle de bain. La maison (ou plutôt, le château comme disaient les enfants!) est magnifique, avec des fresques du moyen-âge, sa structure originale et sa décoration d'excellent goût. La piscine est exceptionnelle et la terrasse offre une vue spectaculaire sur Florence. Jane s'est occupée de nous avec beaucoup de gentillesse et délicatesse. Je n'ai que du bon à dire sur notre séjour et recommande fortement cet endroit pour un séjour mémorable.
Merci pour votre si gentil commentaire et pour être eu tous si charmants.
Nous espérons de vous accueillir a nouveau bientôt!
The property is stunning!
The property was more beautiful, more rich in its history, and better located than anyone in our group could have hoped for. Camilla is an extremely gracious and kind hostess who has payed attention to every detail, ensuring the stay is as comfortable as possible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property, or stay at Torre di Sopra again.
Thank you so much for leaving this review and for being such great guests!
We loved having you to stay and very much hope to welcome you again one day soon.
As you can see from the map, the Torre is relatively close to the motorway which runs through a cutting, at it's nearest point to us, and is only visible from the upstairs windows on that side of the house. The sound comes up the valley and is audible in the garden as a low buzz when the wind is in a certain direction. We hardly notice it, but want you to be aware of it (there are currently roadworks in the area, which make it look terrible but do not affect us). The advantage of this proximity is that we are only 8 minutes from the Firenze Sud motorway junction which provides easy access to the rest Tuscany. We are ideally placed for visiting Florence as well as Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca. We are approximately 30 minutes from Greve and San Gimignano. If you search in Google Maps for Via Peruzzi 109b, you should see it all.
