Bellissima torre medievale

Left on TripAdvisor on Feb 19, 2019 for a stay in Feb 2019
La torre è mantenuta perfettamente e dormire nel letto a baldacchino è un’esperienza da vere principesse. La sala pranzo offre tutti i servizi necessari. Meravigliosa la terrazza all’ultimo piano, vista mozzafiato su tutta la vallata tra Montecatini Val di Cecina e Volterra.

An INCREDIBLE experience!!! If you have the chance to meet Luca and his family and stay here, DO IT! Their hospitality is as amazing as the Tower itself. We stayed for 4 nights and did day trips around the area, but it was returning to the Tower each day that was the most unique. The views from the top, even in January, are spectacular. The rooms are very warm and comfortable. We moved from level to level just to experience each. The kitchen is very well appointed for cooking; the fireplace on the next level perfect for an evening in, the beds extremely comfortable, all of it extremely clean. Truly an experience worth having! Thank you Luca and Emilia!

We had such an amazing time staying in the Tower. Luca and Emilia are the consummate hosts – kind and helpful, full of advice on the area, unobtrusive but available, etc. We couldn’t imagine a more wonderful place to stay in the area and are very much looking forward to returning! For those planning, we stayed for three nights. We visited Pavia and one of the towns in Cinque Terre on our drive down from Milan. We spent our first day in Pisa/Lucca and second in Volterra/San Gimigniano. After our final night, we stopped by Siena on our drive to Florence. We both wished we’d had more time to spend in the area.

Lieu magique et intense … Une situation exceptionnelle et un cadre de haut niveau de prestations … qui se mérite (une maison “verticale” avec un nombre important de marches à gravir et descendre … mais quel bonheur ! L’accueil de Luca et sa femme est juste parfait. Très disponibles et bienveillants, avec des attentions une production potagère magnifique…

Luca and his family were so welcoming and made our trip! We highly recommend staying with them in the castle! They were very accommodating, always accessible, thoughtful and down right amazing hosts. Have you ever stayed in a castle? If you haven’t, I highly suggest staying HERE! Can’t wait to visit again!

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.

🙁No negative comments.


A welcome return

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
