"We have just returned from 2 weeks at Torre Del Guado. It was a wonderful place with great accommodation which was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a great pool, table tennis, volleyball and bikes for adults and children. Mattia, the owner, is always on hand to help with booking trips etc and keeps the grounds in excellent condition."

"We have recently returned from a wonderful week's stay at Torre del Guado. Ginestra, the apartment we rented, was beautifully and tastefully furnished and was spotlessly clean. The owners, Giuseppe and Mattia, were very friendly and accommodating."

"My husband and I traveled throughout Italy for 3 and half months and Torre del Guado was by far the highlight. Mattia & Giuseppe (the owners) are the most genuine, generous, kind people ever and have become friends for life. The rooms were amazing (We stayed in a few) and the pool was spectacular."

"The accommodation itself was beyond my expectations. We were warmly received by our hosts Matteo and her husband who were very knowledgeable and helpful about the area, places to visit, where to shop for the best food and where to get discounts at area stores. The grounds were extensive and very well kept. The pool was a bonus; we loved coming back after a day exploring the countryside to relax and cool off in the huge salt water pool overlooking the beautiful Tuscan hills. It was a perfect place for families as well. The appt. itself was spotless, beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and very comfortable. Everything you needed was provided. I really felt at home and was sad to leave. I would highly recommend Torre del Guado to anyone who wants to spend some time exploring southern and eastern Tuscany."
