"My husband and I stayed at Torre Bisenzio with our family from August 17th to August 31st. We had a wonderful stay. You and your husband have done a fantastic job in the renovation of the villa and the development of the agricultural estate. It is a beautiful place.
We also very much appreciated the care that Cynthia took in making sure that everything was working well and that we were settled in our arrangements. She made local calls for us regarding restaurants and gave us very helpful information in connection with excursions we made to local towns. She also made sure we had everything we needed.
Thank you so much.
"We hired Torre Bisenzio from 6 July to 13th July for my wife’s birthday.
What can I say?
- The Villa is incredible - you and Mike have done a terrific job.
- The garden is amazing. Lamberto and his team keep it looking fantastic;
- Cynthia and Sabina and the two house-ladies really looked after us well. Nothing was a bother and they all went out of their way to make sure that we had a wonderful holiday.
- Cynthia’s cooking is - well - delicious beyond description. I am going to try to recreate her Parmigiana this afternoon. I fear it will be no-where as good as hers.
- The pizza night was especially memorable.
Neena, please pass on our thanks to all concerned.

"We stayed at your lovely Italian villa last month and I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the stay. The grounds were beautiful and the villa was very comfortable. I also wanted to mention that Cynthia was very helpful and helped to make our stay a very pleasant one.
Hope to stay again in the future,

"My wife and I and our guests had a wonderful time at your amazing property. Cynthia, Sabina, Christian and the team were great and our only regret was the week went by too fast!
We're hopeful we will visit with you again.

"I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our holiday at your amazing villa. We were part of the party with Mr & Mrs B. It was great for us to be on the receiving end of a luxury villa. We both worked with Mr & Mrs B in the south of France a few years ago. We managed and ran a high end villa for them and it was lovely to see how your staff managed the villa in Italy. We both understand how much work is involved, Cynthia with her staff maintained a high level of service through out the week. Cynthia's special gifts of cakes were very much appreciated and that is exactly the sort of things I would do for my guests.
We hope this will be passed onto to Cynthia and her team as it is very important to keep good staff.
Thank you again.

"Torre Bisenzio exceeded our expectations, which were already very high given what we knew about it. The property is completely stunning -the pictures are lovely but don't do it justice. The two buildings sit on the crest of a hill, surrounded by vineyard/farm and the hills of Umbria. Cynthia, the manager of Torre Bisenzio, was particularly helpful in making our week so wonderful. Together with her colleagues, she gave us good advice about activities in the surrounding area and made us feel completely at home - she does an amazing job tailoring the experience of the place to the needs of her clients."

"We sadly just left paradise. We had an amazing trip. And while the villa was perfect the best part of the experience was Cynthia and Sabina- they took care of us with such warmth, love and kindness. For this we are so grateful. Our children loved every minute with them!
Hope to be back soon and hope you have a wonderful week at your beautiful piece of heaven!

"We stayed with family and friends in your wonderful villa last week. I just wanted to say how much we all loved our holiday, we think your house is quite out of this world and probably one of the nicest houses we have ever rented. You must totally love it and you have created a wonderful and breathtaking property. Cynthia is an absolute credit to you and I can’t thank her enough for everything she did to make our holiday 100% perfect and happy. She and her husband could not have been more helpful and their attitude, advice, cooking and help certainly added to the success of our holiday. A huge thank you from us all!!"

"Our group of 16 stayed at your villa last week. I wanted to let you know that we had an incredible time. The villa is beautiful, so much attention to detail, elegant yet very comfortable.
Cynthia was great, very helpful and accommodating. She and your staff took very good care of us. We also enjoyed your olive oil and wine.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful property. The road to the top is a bit daunting but we conquered it each day. Many of us walked it each day as well, which was quite a challenge! But, we felt less guilty about indulging in all the wine and pasta after we walked a few miles each day!"

The villa is perfect. There is an abundance of kitchenware, towels supplies, necessities, etc. All the stuff you need for a nice vacay. Wish it had aircon as Europe is becoming unbearably hot these last few summers. A bar by the pool area would also save many trips back and forth to the kitchen. But overall, perfect villa and very well maintained with owners thinking of every small detail.
Thank you for the recommendations. We are currently in the process of installing air-conditioning units in all bedrooms and the Guest House Lounge, this will be ready for 2018. We are also looking into a bar/refrigerator unit in the gazebo by the pool. We hope that this will be installed for 2018.

"We chose this villa since it seemed a good fit for a group of seven adults and five children (ages 8 and younger). We were drawn to this villa for its amazing hilltop views and we were not disappointed; it is just as beautiful, if not more so, in person. Cynthia was very helpful and made our stay comfortable and pleasant. We were pleasantly surprised by the technology in the villa, such as the range and quality of the wi-fi, and wireless Sonos speakers. Overall the villa provides an elegant combination of function and charm. There are many spaces in this villa that are good for gathering, inside and outside, including the pool, which we all loved. We highly recommend Torre Bisenzio!"

"We had a wonderful time last week, made all the better by the fantastic weather. Torre was even better than we could have imagined. My family enjoyed every aspect of the property, from my parents to my children. It's a special place and I am sure the owners are incredibly proud of the work they have done to create such an environment. "

"Nos vacances ont été parfaites à Torre Bisenzio !
Votre maison est superbe, le jardin vraiment exceptionnel et il n’y a pas de mots pour décrire la vue. Si, peut être époustouflante !
Le point fort incontestable est le nombre d’activités mises à notre disposition (billard, pétanque, salle de sport etc…) et, surtout, la diversité des jeux pour les enfants. Tous nos petits se sont beaucoup amusés et leurs parents ont été heureux ! :-)
La disposition des chambres dans les deux bâtiments est un réel avantage et évite d’être les uns sur les autres. Bien que très pratique, votre maison a conservé le sublime cachet de la région et cette alliance renforce son charme.
Bref, nous avons tous été ravis de notre séjour chez vous, à l’unanimité ! "

"It has been a real joy to spend 15 days in your marvelous ‘Torre Bisenzio’. We and our friends are very impressed by everything we experienced there.
The place, the sight, the sunrise, Cynthia and her family, the service, the sky (blue or cloudy), the bedrooms, the swimming pool, the great garden (so beautiful) , the lavander, the oven place, your wine, everything is just perfect.
So just thank you for building such a wonderful place on earth. I hope we will have a chance to come back next year.

"After months of planning for our father's 70th birthday and finally finding your beautiful vacation home on the internet, we were more than swept away with relief when we awoke after a late arrival to what was truly all that we could have hoped for and more. You truly have a beautiful gem in one of the most beautiful regions of the world. Your endless lavender and herb gardens, the cows, the vista...amazing!"

"We were there three generations: eight adults and four children. This was a wonderful vacation, the Home is so impressive, beautiful, welcoming and convenient. One can tell that the owners really love the place, and that they have invested there not only money. EVERYTHING WAS BEYOND ALL EXPECTATIONS - The bedrooms, the kitchen, the playrooms, the outdoors, the pool. Everything spotlessly clean and wonderfully furnished. The views 360 degrees are stunning, the garden is beautiful. We also found it very easy to adjust and we found anything we looked for in seconds... as if we have always lived there. Cynthia was so warm and helpful, and we really felt at home. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience."

"I would like to thank you for the simply wonderful holiday we had at the Torre. I have stayed in some lovely places, but the views from the Torre totally eclipse any I have ever seen – and the gardens are a work of art! We had a memorable barbecue evening down near the pool and on our last night Federica came up and cooked for us.
Cynthia was unfailingly helpful: in fact, the whole thing was as close to perfection as it is possible to get.
Thank you again for a memorable stay."

"I would like to thank you for the wonderful stay we had in Torre Bisenzio. We just returned home last week, but we still have great memories in our minds. We spent one week there celebrating my mother’s 50th birthday.
Above all, I would like to congratulate you on creating such an extraordinary place. La Torre is absolutely exceptional – I have travelled a lot in different places around the world, but never been to such an estate. The location and views are breath-taking. You and your family must have put a lot of effort to restore the estate so well. To tell you the truth, one can feel that Torre is not a fully commercial place – I guess that you spend quite a lot of time there and take care of everything as you would do it in your home.
Cynthia was very helpful and took care of us well. She is such a nice person and very reliable!
I am looking forward to visiting Torre Bisenzio soon again."

"The property is outstanding. We have rented other villas in Europe. This was the best. We have enormous admiration for the couple that did the renovation. The quality is superb while still retaining the "typicity" of the property. Bravo!!
The ability to take from the garden was an unexpected treat. I picked and roasted sweet peppers (only some of which were used in Cynthia's pizza). We made our own tomato gravy from the garden. And Cynthia is excellent, as other reviewers have noted. "
Guests from USA - September 2011
"This villa was terrific!...the view is unsurpassed!...the staff of the villa were outstanding and went above and beyond our expectations to make our stay most comfortable. The only issue our party had with this villa was the lack of air-conditioning...it was a bit warm...also, some of the windows did not have screens and we would have preferred them as we would be more comfortable sleeping with them."
Guests from USA - June 2009
"Torre Bisenzio was absolutely perfect! I don't think we could have rented a better house or had more caring staff. Thanks for your assistance in the selection."
