Truly memorable experience in a magic place
Our family vacation at Torre di Sopra was truly memorable, even better than I anticipated—and thanks I believe to the incredible structure and stunning grounds of the Torre- its ancient edifice and grounds overlooking the hills of Tuscany working their magic. As a large family unit, we relaxed in a way I don’t think we ever have before, we enjoyed one another, we enjoyed the solace that the magnificent grounds can afford even a large group, we loved and utilized the beautiful vegetable garden, the gracious and multiple courtyards with their large dining tables. We RELAXED! As my surgeon son said upon his return home, “it made us assess how we use time as a family.” We were both close enough to Florence to make it easy to get to and yet far enough away to enjoy the country, close to wonderful shopping and restaurants. Thank you Camilla and Tom for allowing us to utilize your home. We will never forget the magic of the Torre.
Thank you for such a lovely review and for being such wonderful guests from beginning to end!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and very much hope to be able to welcome you back again one day.
