L’arredamento, tipicamente toscano, crea un’atmosfera rilassata e accogliente: il grande camino funzionante é perfetto per riscaldare la casa d’inverno o per preparare ottime grigliate. Fuori il grande ippocastano vi accoglierà sotto la sua ombra ristoratrice. Siete in un’ autentica casa di campagna toscana, ristrutturata in maniera da conservare lo spirito semplice e concreto del luogo. Non è un resort a cinque stelle! Il podere si estende per oltre 30 ettari, tra boschetti, pascoli e campi di ulivi. Per gli amanti degli animali, la nostra “fattoria” ospita cavalli, galline, oche, piccioni, due cani e, da qualche mese, un simpatico gruppo di caprette. Godetevi la spettacolare vista sulla vallata al tramonto, perfetto anfiteatro naturale (magari con un buon bicchiere di vino!), rilassatevi con una passeggiata immersi nella natura circostante o fate un salto in paese per un ottimo aperitivo! Casa La Torre was originally a 13th-century tower that was later renovated and converted into a characteristic Tuscan house, which still maintains its unique atmosphere and personality. Tucked away among the green hills of Tuscany on the border with Umbria, it offers an amazing view on the whole valley and its charming villages. It sleeps 6-8 people and has five double bedrooms, two of which have twin beds and all decorated with antique furniture. The fully-equipped kitchen has an original fireplace, perfect to heat up the room or for great BBQs, gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, TV and basic kitchen tools. Downstairs you can find a cozy taverna (basement room) with comfortable sofas. Two bathrooms (shower + bathtub), two small toilets, This is an authentic Tuscan country house, not a 5 stars resort with fancy furniture and hi-tech devices.. and we love it just the way it is! The property is surrounded by a beautiful and peaceful countryside: 30 hectares of woods, lawns, olive groves and mounting paths. If you love animals, well you are in the right place! In our small farm you will meet horses, chickens, ducks and geese, two friendly dogs and even a herd of goats. You can relax yourself enjoying an al fresco dinner (the view of the valley from the courtyard is just stunning!), have a nice walk around the property or, if you prefer, why not visiting one of the interesting market towns nearby?

Possibilità di organizzare lezioni di cucina su richiesta o preparazione di cene tipiche sul luogo. Ampio posto auto per 3 o 4 vetture davanti all’abitazione. A causa del fortissimo vento che ha provocato molti danni nella nostra vallata lo scorso Marzo, alcuni recinti ed arbusti sono ancora da risistemare.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very helpful and friendly despite our getting stuck in traffic and arriving later than expected. They provided supplies and advice on arrival. There is a large town nearby so even though the house has a country feel you are only a short drive from good supermarkets and restaurants etc. There are two dogs who live at the house too (which we did't expect) but the were really lovely and gentle with my son and he was so sad when we had to leave them. We enjoyed feeding the goats and seeing the 1 mouth old foal. As it states in the listing it is not all-mod-cons (no pool or power shower) but if your not fussed about that kind of thing it is a really good value farmhouse style holiday.

We loved this place! It is quiet and peaceful. A great stop after the craziness of the bigger cities. It's not easy to find in the dark so I would suggest checking in before dusk if you can. We spent quite some time searching despite decent directions and when we gave up our host's aunt came to a nearby location and let us follow her. Once we had our bearings it was simple to find and close to town so day trips were very easy. We adored the dogs and all of the farm animals were fun to watch and visit. The geese were charming and not aggressive despite the show they put on! The house was huge and amazing. It's a very old farmhouse and behaved as such (as to be expected) but it had everything we needed and was comfortable. Communication was good and we were checked on and assisted as needed, though there were a lot of people and not very good English so it was a little confusing at times. No wifi, which was expected and I was OK with. I ended up using wifi at restaurants to do planning for the next leg of our trip.

We did not know what to expect driving up into the mountain and what was awaiting for us when we arrived.We received a very warm welcome by Giovanna who took her time to explain everything to us.This is an original rustic beautiful farmhouse that we would without a hesitation would come back to. We loved everything about it.Its magical. Paco and Azara the two loveliest dogs touched our hearts and could not imagine not seeing them in the morning and when we arrived at night.They are just so full of love and we love them. The property is just gorgeous and really has a tru country (URL HIDDEN) first i was worried about not having internet,but once we were there i didn't want to connect with the world,i wanted to connect with the nature and the animals that are there.I highly recommend this place.Pictures dont do justice :)) The fireplace is amazing and kept us warm at all times.This is the perfect escape from a city living.

Casa La Torre is a very beautiful house with typical italien flair. We arrived with a warm welcome from Lucios family, especially Giovanna and their two dogs! They prepared a tasty welcome basket and showed us the house. Next to the house are lots of animals...horses, chicken, goats and ducks...perfect for our kid and also for us sity people. We really loved the silence and beautiful view over the countryside and enjoyed to have a short drive into the ancient citySansepolcro. Everyone who will spend their holidays in this region should visit Lucios Casa La Torre!

Una location perfetta per una vacanza all'insegna della tranquillità. Vista sulla vallata e i due simpatici cani a far da guida e dare il benvenuto. Giovanna é accogliente e disponibile. Non vediamo l'ora di trovare la prossima occasione per tornare!

Der Torre ist sehr schön gelegen und bietet einen tollen Blick über das Tal. Obwohl Sansepolcro in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen ist, entsteht der Eindruck, dass man sich in mitten der Natur befindet. Der Empfang von Lúcio´s Familie war sehr herzlich und gastfreundlich. Während unseres Aufenthalts nahmen Sie sich Zeit um uns unter anderem die Tiere zu zeigen, mit frischen Eiern zu versorgen und sicherzustellen dass es uns gut geht. Schon vor unser Ankunft hatte uns Lucio auf Nachfrage mit vielen tollen Tips für Restaurants, Pasticcerias und Macellerias versorgt. Nachmals Vielen Dank für die wunderbaren Tage.

Sono nato e cresciuto a Sansepolcro ma attualmente vivo e lavoro a Tokyo.
Il podere è di mio nonno e, anche se sono lontano, mi piace dare una mano nella gestione dei contatti con i nostri ospiti. E' un buon modo per stringere nuove amicizie e, perchè no, sentirsi più vicini a casa!
La mia famiglia si trova sul posto e sarà a vostra disposizione per tutto il periodo di aspettiamo!
