We absolutely loved living in the tower!!! What a unique experience to be able to live in a place that is older than the country most of us came from. Silvia is very nice and caring and checked in daily through text messaging. The tower was clean and had everything you could possibly need. Seggiano is a lovely village and we had two nice dinners there. The surrounding area is also gorgeous. Our short holiday couldn't have been any better!!

Silvia was a very friendly and attentive host. The location was beautiful and the building was incredibly unique. It really was like staying in a castle! Our main reason for the mediocre listing is that it's cleanliness was sub par. The entire place had a very strong mildew/musty odor. The linens didn't feel fresh, possibly just because the entire place smelled so bad, but they were also mismatched and worn. We found numerous giant centipede, worm things around the place that appeared on floors and doorsteps during our stay. This gave the impression that they were crawling right out of the woodwork. Gross! The furnishing were also in bad shape, being not only broken , but also worn and dated. We own an historic home and know the difference between unique, antiques and something that should be replaced. There were even places you could see where repairs were attempted in a very poor manner. We also had no wifi and ran out of toilet paper. Though Silvia was great about responding, we couldn't find anything (hair dryer, toilet paper) where she said it was. Though Silvia herself was great, we would not stay with her again.

Response from Silvia:
Sono meravigliata nel sentire queste osservazioni così negative da parte dell'ospite! Ci siamo sentite al telefono molto spesso e non si è mai lamentata di odori di muffa o altro. Tra i servizi della casa il wi fi non è contemplato e questo è scritto in modo chiaro nel sito. La casa è pulita, anche se può esserci stato qualche insetto. La carta igienica e il phon erano nei mobiletti del bagno, non so come mai l'ospite non li abbia trovati, forse non mi sono spiegata bene in inglese dove avrebbe dovuto cercare. Sono molto amareggiata, controllerò meglio la casa, ma lasciare recensioni di questo tipo, non penso sia corretto, proprio perchè ho sentito l'ospite varie volte durante le 2 notti che ha trascorso nella casa e apprendo solo ora, dalla recensione pubblica , le sue lamentele.

Thanks for a wonderful stay in this special accommodation. My family loved it. We thought the views and the excitement of being in a tower were the highlight. Having a lonely planet book was thoughtful, especially as there is no WiFi. We used the internet at the lovely wine bar restaurant up in the centre. Having a car allowed us to visit lots of places in the area. Parking was easy, just as described. The supermarket has some irregular hours, they are on the door. grazie Silvia!

Silvia's house is just amazing! We loved our stay in Seggiano. The house is fully equiped with everything you need and even more. Seggiano is a very interesting town, with a great deal of charm. Surrounding cities are also lovely, there is many things to see around. Silvia is a great host, she provided us with everything we needed and replied to all emails very quickly. We recommend Silvia's house to all of you who whant to get to know Tuscany and live in a great and memorable location.

Silvia's place is just fabulous - one of a kind and we loved staying there. It was great to have little touches: tea and coffee and jam for breakfast were provided and Silvia had left a bottle of wine for my husband's birthday - what a lovely gesture! Her communication was excellent and everything was just as described. Seggiano itself is a wonderful little place and the locals are very friendly. The views from the tower are stunning and the starlit sky at night is beautiful. We just didn't have enough time to spend there and hope to be back some day soon.

Sylvia's tower is lovely and quite well equipped with comfortable beds and nice showers. Sylvia is an excellent host with very good communication and always there to help. Tina who assists is a lovely lady full of smiles and helpful. The local inn in the village square does excellent food as does the pizza restaurant near the Spar supermarket. A lovely stay and the village is full of character. Do not miss a trip to the Fosso Bianco at Bagni San Fillipo

Everything was perfect for us (2 adults 3 children) at Sylvia's Medieval Tower. Sylvia was very kind, flexible and provided a maximum of information. The tower, in the heart of the old part of the village is spacious and very clean.
