My husband and I really loved staying here, the building is beautiful and the small town had a unique and lovely atmosphere, we ate breakfast and dinner on the little terrace every day looking out to the olive groves, so beautiful!! We want to thank Irene and her family as they were extremely helpful and generous to us.

Très bon accueil de la maman de la propriétaire. A noter la présence d'un foyer d'une trentaine de personnes à côté de la Torreta, c'est bruyant 20/24 h (on a quelques heures de répis quand même), c'est insupportable et donc, on ne se repose pas. Ce fait, absent de l'annonce, a pourtant toute son importance. L'absence de Wi-Fi est inexplicable. Quant à l'aménagement, ce sont des meubles au rabais, il faut voir l'électro-ménager dispatché dans toute la pièce principale et le lit avec son vieux sommier. Bien entendu, pas de chaine Hi-Fi. Par exemple, la cafetière italienne pour UNE personne, chacun fait son café à son tour. Dans la salle de bain, le mur est caché pour un autre rideau de douche qui dissimule un plaque de plexis collée par du plâtre. Il faudrait m'expliquer. Nous avons passé 2 semaines à Batignano, et ces 2 semaines furent un enfer. Nous sommes loin du cliché "village en Toscane". Un point positif ? : la boulangerie en bas des escaliers. NOUS NE REVIENDRONS PAS !!!!!

Response from Irene:
I am sorry that you felt like that. As you can read in the review I left to you as a guest my family had no idea that all this discomfort was going on and I am really sorry to hear that. I wish you would've shared it with me earlier. I apologise for the presence of the refugees but they are sent there by the government and we can not know when the place will be empty or full, whether will be noisy etc. As regards the wi-fi, it was clearly listed as absent among the facilities and the pictures reflected the space as it is, we didn't even used a wide angle as many do. It is a medieval tower in a Tuscan village so the furnitures and the facilities reflect the environment and are part of the experience. We also have limitations in terms of renovations since the property is protected as historical heritage. As you can read this is the first bad review we received. Irene

Casa molto affascinante, naturalemnte non modernissima visto la tipologia ma l'esperienza di vivere in una torretta medioevale è impagabile. Il borgo dov'è situato è decisamente caratteristico ,anche se piccolo, sono presenti tutti i negozi principali tra cui un forno proprio sotto casa molto comodo per la colazione. La posizione è molto comoda perchè nel giro di un'oretta di auto si trovano tanti luoghi da visitare (Siena, Argentario, monte Amiata, Saturnia,Capalbio, Montalcino,Pienza,ecc), il mare più vicino è a solo mezz'ora di auto. Non abbiamo potuto conoscere direttamente Irene (che comunque nei girorni precedenti ha sempre risposto alle nostre richieste in modo più che celere) ma siamo stai accolti splandidamente dai suoi genitori che ci hanno fornito anche un sacco di indicazioni su cosa vedere in zona.

Een prachtige torenwoning op de stadsmuur van Batignano naast de resten van de Porta Senese van maar liefst 900 jaar oud! Smaakvol ingericht, alles wat je nodig hebt is er en de ontvangst was echt heel hartelijk. Koekjes, een flesje olijfolie, vers fruit en een flesje wijn stonden als welkom op de tafel. Klasse! Onderaan de trap is het winkeltje van de warme bakker, ideaal. In het dorp zijn twee levensmiddelen-winkeltjes, een ervan met slagerij erin verder vindt je er een Tabacchi en een bar, waar de hele dag door mensen zitten voor een cappuccino met dolce, een aperitivo, een biertje of gewoon voor een caffè. Een echte aanrader dus. Ciao Irene!

Irene è stata molto carina, disponibile e gentilissima. Accoglienza perfetta, Batignano è un paesino piccolo ma c'è tutto, compreso il forno proprio sotto casa che al mattino sforna dolci, pane, focacce e tanto altro. Inoltre è in una posizione ideale come base di partenza per escursioni nella zona, Marina di Alberese e il parco della Maremma sono vicinissimi ma anche l'Argentario, Albinia, Orbetello, Porto Santo Stefano e Porto Ercole si raggiungono facilmente. La Torretta poi è deliziosa, eravamo in 5 e siamo stati benissimo, lo consiglio vivamente!!

I'm from Grosseto but I've been living and working around Italy and then the world since I was eighteen. I'm a Software Developer, based in London at the moment. My mother's family is from Batignano and I grow up in that beautiful place, we own a farm and an olive grove.
