Description

As it’s name suggests a homely nest overlooking the Chestnut woods, entrance on the first floor with living/dining area with well equipped kitchen facilities (hob and fridge), double bedroom and bathroom with shower facilities.

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 and our vine-covered pergola gives a shady retreat for al fresco dining.
We offer a selection of self-catering apartments for 2 to 6 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.
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 or for those cooler evenings curl up with a good book and the inevitable glass of Chianti in front of the log fire

After lazy days relaxing by the pool or in the secluded gardens, 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 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.

The Apartments....
The apartments are situated on the first and second floors of the farmhouse, each individual in style, tastefully furnished and decorated in warm Tuscan tones highlighting the typical architecture. Careful attention has been paid to the kitchens and bathrooms and panoramic views unfold from every window, sweeping over rolling hills and unspoilt countryside studded with olive trees and there are ample outside terraces and gardens in which to relax.
