A welcome return

Left on TripAdvisor on Aug 26, 2018 for a stay in Aug 2018
Having spent two summer holidays in Montecatini as a child, my expectations were high hoping that a stay in Belforti Tower would match my memories of previous visits. I can only say that the experience exceeded what I was looking for. Our friends and kids loved the tower and the garden is is an amazing place for kids and adults to enjoy alike. Highlights included pre-dinner Gin and Tonics on the rooftop terrace with the breathtaking 360 degree views of the surroundings from Volterra on one side all the way to the sea on the other. The village of Montecatini remains as charming as I remember and many a happy evening was spent in one of the two restaurants, eating great local dishes followed by an ice cream at the Central Bar, watching the kids playing in the Square. The local bakery and supermarket are complimented by the local Friday market not to mention the van which visits every Thursday selling Smoked Mozzarella to which we are now converts. Finally to our hosts Luca and Emilia – thank you so much for your warm welcome, which really added to our stay. Luca was always available to help from a friendly chat, providing information about local places to visit to helping me get re-acquainted with friends the same age I had made 35 years earlier. To sum up this unique accommodation in an unspoilt part of Tuscany is a real gem. My only reluctance in writing this review, is ironically I don’t want too many people to visit so that when I next return it has changed as little as it did between my first visit and now. Grazie
