Torrenieri house description
The house is part of an old school building that was fully renovated in 2008 and is a large 3 bedroom property, which provides comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people.

ReviewsWrite a review
My family is fortunate to have "lived" in this idyllic property for 2 weeks in early summer, 2010. The home and surrounding countryside is beautiful, and the people in the hamlet of Vergelle warm and welcoming. We constantly recall stories of our magical time in Tuscany...wishing to return soon. We wanted for nothing while we were there.
