Tucked away in the Florentine hills just 28km from the cultural centre of Florence, home to the renowned Medici family and birthplace of Renaissance art, “Podere Torremozza” is the perfect hideaway .....
The unique setting overlooking the most picturesque stretch of the Pomino and Rufina wine route is a splendid area for nature lovers, walkers and historians alike and for those in search of culture the beautiful Medieval cities of Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca and Arezzo are within easy reach.
Descending down a winding tree-lined lane you will be pleasantly surprised to find this charming 15th century rambling stone farmhouse, perched majestically above 20 acres of chestnut woods and olive groves, it’s beauty further enhanced by layers of stone terracing giving shady retreats for al fresco dining under vine-covered pergolas.
We offer a selection of self-catering apartments for 2 to 8 persons within the farmhouse, lovingly restored in keeping with local traditions. These may be rented out on an individual basis or the whole place can be reserved for families and friends.
A relaxed breakfast or dinner (on request) using freshly harvested seasonal produce from our vegetable garden can be served on the terraces during the summer months or in the characteristic dining room when temperatures drop. Enjoy an “aperitivo” in the cool of “La Limonaia” or just soak up the atmosphere of our very own olive press where local olive oil, wine and other products are available.
After lazy days absorbing a good book with the inevitable glass of Chianti either in the secluded gardens or relaxing by the pool, take time out to explore the surrounding countryside, on foot or for the more adventurous on horseback or mountain bike. Discover our small stream and take a cool dip or just breathe in those wonderful scents and views, every angle offering a different aspect of this much loved corner of Tuscany.
We can organise special itineraries for those interested in wine-tasting, art courses, cookery or mind and body workshops or if you would like to celebrate a special event like an intimate wedding or special anniversary, we would be only too happy to take care of the arrangements.
Podere Torremozza is one of Tuscany’s best kept secrets and your Anglo-Italian hosts would like to share these simple pleasures with you and will endeavour to make your stay in Tuscany very special.
