This is one of the most spectacular places we have ever stayed.Tuscany and it’s views across the medieval village and beyond are amazing. The tower has been very sympathetically modernised with fantastic WiFi, The hosts Luca and Emilia were warm and welcoming and full of useful information as to where to go and what to do. Their garden is lovely and full of tasty produce! Our visit here will live long in the memory and sustain us through another English winter.

Torre Belforti is een prima plek om vakantie te vieren. De ontvangst was erg gastvrij. We hebben daar een hele mooie tijd gehad. Verder kun je vandaar uit ook makkelijk en goed allerlei steden bezoeken

😀The tower and its surroundings are stunning. Luca and Emilia are excellent hosts and will give you all the information that you need for a wonderfull stay. The garden is a small world on its own, very relaxing.

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

Luca is a magic person, and he curated a magic experience for us in Tuscany. The tower is as impressive from the neighbouring valley as it is up close, and even more impressive once inside. Stunning and stylish decor, spectacular views, 5ft thick ancient walls, fresh tomatoes and pressed olive oil from the grounds, and wonderful Montecatini – a rare undiscovered gem in Tuscany – all made for a fantastic holiday. Worth a trip to Italy just to stay here.

Komfortables Wohnen im 13. Jahrhundert

😀Das Allerbeste war die beeindruckende Aussicht in die Weite der Toskana! Jeden Tag aufs Neue atemberaubend! Das Wohnen im Turm ist etwas Besonderes, wir haben es sehr genossen! Es gibt einen romantischen Garten, einen kleinen Pool inmitten von Olivenbäumen. Wir haben dort gefrühstückt, herrlich! Luca und Emilia sind sehr aufgeschlossene, freundliche und unkomplizierte Vermieter! Montecatini ist ein bezauberndes Dörfchen, wo sogleich Urlaubsfeeling aufkommt. Wir haben jeden Abend auf dem Dorfplatz gesessen und sehr gut gegessen.

An absolutely unique and wonderful experience

We have just returned from an unforgettable week at the beautiful medieval Belforti Tower which has been lovingly and painstakingly restored and set in a magical garden. This truly was a wonderful experience for the entire family. Luca and Emilia were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Luca even accompanied my husband and 2 boys aged 12 and 18 to the nearby rivers (one of the highlights of the holiday for them.) The location is ideally situated for those who wish to stay in this beautiful Tuscan area or those who wish to explore the main tourist attractions. The railway station is 30 mins away with frequent connections to Florence, Pisa and Venice. The trains are very punctual. However, if you wish to stay local, there are many beautiful villages and towns to enjoy. I would recommend this accommodation and location with 2 lovely restaurants and with its ever so friendly locals to anyone who wishes to experience real life Tuscany.

Just book it and experience a very special stay. There are stairs but then you have chosen to stay in a tower. Views from the top are just stunning and Luca and Emilia are so welcoming. Just a unique building with stunning views in a beautiful part of the world. Enjoy ……..we did !!!

What an amazing and unique experience staying in Belforti Tower was. We loved it. Luca and Elenia are great hosts and helped with all our enquiries. They also recommended great things to do and a lovely restaurant, where we had our best meal. The steps are hard work, so not for anybody with mobility issues but well worth it if you can do them for the stunning views from the top. We found it hard to leave the Tower and go out but there are some lovely places to visit locally. The drive up is challenging and it is a good job Luca meets you and takes you up the first time you do it. He also gives you a tour of the Tower and gardens on arrival, which is really helpful. Would recommend a stay here if you want to experience something completely different and have a taste of real Tuscany. We loved it and hope we can visit again.
