Alba and Andrew are perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and the rooms are very comfortable. A quiet and secluded location but within easy access of the local towns, Barbarino Val d'Elsa and Poggibonsi. A very good restaurant, Le Cantinacce, is only a short walk away down the road.

This is our third visit, and once again we found the peace and tranquillity in beautiful surroundings that we were looking for. We stayed in room 2 this time which is a lovely large room with a small area to one side with fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee maker and sink so you can choose to eat in if you like....

I think that the reviews for Torre Di Ponzano say everything about this lovely place and the delightful people who run it. I've know Sonny an Alba since 1988 when they took over the Zucchi Hotel in nearby Sambuca and have stayed with them many, many times since. We have just returned from a week at Ponzano fantastic as ever,...

We stayed at the Torre di Ponzano on the start of our honeymoon and it was simply perfect. Sonny and Alba were warm, welcoming and made us feel relaxed. They were very helpful in recommending restaurants and places to eat and visit and Alba's homemade Italian dices were delicious. Especially her tiramisu 😍. We would go back without a shadow...

Super location, beautiful hotel. The view from the terrace is unforgettable. Many great sites are easily reachable by car: Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, and many other lovely smaller villages. Just ask Sonny and Alba for advice on where to go and what and where to eat. No matter how busy they are, they take the time to take good care...

An evening in the garden, watching a magnificent sunset over Tuscan hills ...... Andrew playing the "Gnossienne n°1" from Erik Satie....... Everything was perfect but this... was just magic and will remain for ever in my mind. Thank you.... Looking forward to spending a week in Torre and to enjoying Torre di ponzano in spring

A totally unplanned trip through Tuscany unearthed this magnificent oasis. The location, the views, the accommodation, the value and of course the hosts were all first class. We simply could not rate Torre di Ponzano any higher and wish we'd had an entire week use Andrew and Alba's stunning retreat as our Tuscan base. Oh well . . . there's...
