Podere Torricella is a large old rambling Tuscan farm house located on a hill among olive groves and vineyards only 18 km from the centre of Florence. It represents an ideal base to easily reach the most important artistic cities of Tuscany; Pisa, Siena, Lucca, S. Gimignano, Volterra, Vinci and of course Florence.

Podere Torricella is near to Florence as well as with easy reach of most important Tuscan places of interest. The nearest airport is Florence airport (less than 40 minutes), Pisa is about an hour and Rome airports are both about three hours distant.
 
The central tower dates back to 1200 whilst the main body, all ochre walls and higgledy, piggledy roofs, has had more than three centuries to acquire the grace of old age.
 
Three years of labour went into the conversion of the rambling old farmhouse into 9 beautiful and spacious one and two-bedroom apartments. The apartments renovated throughout according to Tuscan tradition, have a clean, fresh country look but are immaculate rather than "rustic" as the attention to detail, both the aesthetic and the practical, is scrupulous. Hand some ornamental "Montelupo" plates, beamed ceilings and hand-wrought bedsteads complete the simple but exquisite picture and modern luxury is added in the form of satellite television and phones (outgoing calls only). With in walking distance is a charming typical restaurant where local specialties are served.
