Stayed Saturday 14 August 2010
The property we rented was the smallest of the five, however it was very clean and Juseppe and Maria very helpful and friendly. The pool was unheated so a bit cold initially when you get in but you soon get used to it! Even got used to wearing the obligatory swimming caps. Sansepolcro is a nice small town with a beautiful cathedral. There is a large supermarket nearby and electrical store should you require any adaptors etc. All in all, a very nice place and very peaceful.

I stayed in this property in August 06 for a week with my wife. It's in a great location with mountain views and the surrounding country side has a really relaxed, laid back feel to it even by Tuscan standards. The owners were fantastic, they even left fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs for us from the allotment in the grounds. The pool was kept scrupulously clean, bikes were available free of charge and you just got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. Sansepolcro and nearby Anghiari are small towns but have a non threatening, "safe" feel to them. They also have some great restaurants. Try it...you won't be disappointed.

DolceToronto TorontoMay 2, 2007 We have recently returned from a wonderful week's stay at Torre del Guado. Ginestra, the apartment we rented, was beautifully and tastefully furnished and was spotlessly clean. The owners, Giuseppe and Mattia, were very friendly and accommodating.We chose this property in part because of its proximity to the delightful medieval town of Sansepolcro which is a five minute drive away. One has the advantage of being close to shops and excellent restaurants while still enjoying the absolute tranquillity of the open country around the property. Torre del Guado is also an ideal location for day trips to Urbino, Gubbio, Arezzo and Assisi and the nearby villages of Monterchi and Anghiari. Not to be missed are the wondrous frescoes of della Francesca in Monterchi, Sansepolcro and Arezzo.We look forward to returning at the earliest possible opportunity.This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

Fam. B. Netherlands Review Submitted: July 30, 2008 Date of Stay: June 2008 We have stayed in Torre Del Guado in July 2008 and had a wonderful time. The country house and apartments are beautifully renovated and very well maintained, and are surrounded by a very large garden with a comfortable swimming pool. The environment (Valle Tiberina) is beautiful and quiet, not as touristic as the area around Florence, though interesting sights are very close. The owners of Torre del Guado, Mattia and Giuseppe, are very friendly and helpful, they will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We have fallen in love with this place, and so has our little daughter. We will certainly be back next year! Recommended for: Sightseeing, Families with Young Children
