Tucked away in the Florentine hills just 29 kilometres 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.
You will be pleasantly surprised to find this charming 15th century rambling stone farmhouse, perched majestically over 20 acres of chestnut woods and olive groves, its beauty further enhanced by layers of stone terracing, giving shady retreats for al fresco dining. We offer a selection of six self-catering apartments for two to eight 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 in front of a log burning fire when the temperatures drop. Enjoy an aperitivo in the cool of the "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 or just breathe in those wonderful scents and views, every angle offering a different aspect of this much loved corner of Tuscany. We can organize special itineraries for those interested in wine-tasting, art and cooking courses, mind and body workshops or if you would like to celebrate a special event, anniversary or intimate wedding, your Anglo-Italian hosts would be only to happy to take care of the arrangements.
Podere Torremozza is one of Tuscany's best kept secrets, and we would like to share these simple pleasures with you and will endeavour to make your stay in Tuscany very special.
