Review 4211: Le Torri, Apartment


Review by D Carrick from UK

apartments on an estate near Montespertoli, Tuscany Chianti


June 2009, 14 days


The owners of Le Torri have a winning formula with their self-catering apartments. An imposing restored manor house set in a lovely location close to Florence and the Chianti villages with tastefully finished apartments. The welcome buffet, prepared by the owners, is a perfect way to begin your Tuscan idyll. Not only is the food delicious and plentiful but you also have an opportunity to get to know your fellow guests, which is very easy as you already have something in common with them; you chose Le Torri! The owner's wine helps to melt any reserve you might feel, and having enjoyed two buffet’s I can assure you that the guests at Le Torri share a love of Italy.

If on Sunday morning you choose to relax by the pool, or sit under the shade of an olive tree you can greet your new friends without any uncertainty. It is in fact very tempting to spend time in the quiet surroundings of Le Torri, and if you stay for two weeks you have time for that together with visiting all the sights within traveling distance: Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca to name but a few.

If you take advantage of the Tuscan banquet, offered mid-week, not only do you have another opportunity to sample the owner's culinary skills you will also deepen ties with your fellow guests. By the end of a week Le Torri has taken on the feel of a “house party” with Gabriel and his parents being the perfect hosts ensuring everything is perfect for your enjoyment.

When our holiday came to a close we were very sorry to be leaving Le Torri, however we have wonderful memories of our time spent there and the evenings with our Le Torri friends. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future and until then we have our memories and photos to remind us of a perfect holiday in Tuscany.
