About the neighbourhood
San Gimignano (14km), possibly Italy’s most famous small town, is only a 20 minute drive. This city evokes the atmosphere of Medieval Toscana, with its cobblestone roads, high defensive walls, imposing towers and narrow streets. This small and charming medieval town, founded in the eighth century, is known for its lofty medieval towers, 14 of the 72 original still remain. Inside the city walls, there are many restaurants, speciality shops, art galleries, museums and churches. Volterra (15km), the jewel of Roman, Etruscan, medieval, and Renaissance art, is only a 20 minute drive. Siena (50km), is famous for its large cathedral, the Duomo, which was completed in 1380, and is a great example of Italian Romanesque architecture. Siena is also famous for the Piazza del Campo, which is anothe...
How to get there
A Rental car is essential. There are budget flights from many UK airports to Pisa. Ryanair, Easy Jet, Jet 2 and Thomsonfly all fly into Pisa. Poderra Torrichi is approximately an hour drive (60km) from the Pisa airport. The Florence airport is a little over an hour away. The nearest railway station is located at Certaldo, which is 20km away. This is a renovated farm building, hence in a very beautiful and rural location that is located at the end of a 2km private unmade road, which can be bumpy and have pothole at times!
