The apartment is charming and spacious and in an excellent location from which to explore Tuscany. Their are views across vineyards and the surrounding hills. Poggibonsi is close by and so easy to do grocery shopping there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the tower and would recommend it to other travellers.
Didn't feel so welcome but Valter was in an accident which we had empathy for and must say Valter did help us find our way to some key things to do
Our stay at the Medieval Tower was filled with enchantment that we could only dream of experiencing. The place itself is rustic and remarkably clean for a 500+ year-old building. We were met with an outstanding Tuscany style meal on our arrival and were able to find decent food around the area. The location is perfect for a car and is close to Siena, wine tours and other attractions. Valter provided excellent communication and responded immediately to our needs. We will definitely stay here again in the future!
Our host was extremely welcoming and helpful. He was there to meet us and upon our arrival he showed us around our accommodation ensuring we were well acquainted with all aspects of - "the tower".
Our medieval tower was very typical of Tuscany and everything that we could have wanted of authentic Tuscan accommodation. The surroundings were spectacular. A beautiful setting, perfectly quiet and a great base for our Tuscan adventures.
The total Tuscan experience. Medieval tower with Tuscan views. Totally magic spot. You do need a car if you visit here. Poggibonsi is a difficult town to navigate so Walters directions were excellent.The heuge co op about ten minuets drive away has everything you need in the way of produce. There is a washing machine on the site which can be used bit we didn't find out that it could be used until after we had left. The tower apartment is quirky and has a great ambience about it. With that comes rickety furniture which is a bit disconcerting, a little use of some glue would not go astray.
If your after a totally different accommodation experience I can certainly recommend this place.
Valter was a great host and the location was incredible. I will definitely be coming back to the castle for my next trip to Tuscany.
La descripción de la casa era correcta. Nos gustó mucho el lugar. A pesar de lo antiguo de la residencia se encuentra en muy buenas condiciones
No conocimos a valter. Nos recibió anna que fue muy cordial y nos hizo sentir como en casa

Middle ... aged, married with a Tourist Guide. Interested in art history, politics, environment, a special passion for my wonderful town, Florence and the tuscan contryside. I like cooking traditional recipes experimenting and adding new flavors.
