San Gimignano, Tuscany
Azzurra is an apartment in Poderra Torrichi, a gated community of three farm buildings, which is located between the medieval cities of San Gimignano and Volterra. Podera Torrichi is newly renovated and has retained the charm of the traditional Tuscan farm buildings, with chestnut beams, interior exposed stone, chestnut doors, terracotta tiles and shuttered windows.

There is a large, shared, 14 x 7 meter infinity pool with covered gazebo, sunbathing areas and sunbeds. The pool is situated on the south end of the grounds near the edge of the knoll, and has a glorious view of Volterra and Pisa. The swimming pool is opened from May 1st to September 30. Podera Torrichi is located 2km off of the main road SP4.

We are so happy you had a wonderful time at Azzurra. Relaxing in the patio and watching the sunset are the two favorite things we like to do also. We hope you will come back and stay at Azzurra again. Thank you very much.

How to get there
Railway: Certaldo: 20.0 km
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!
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive.
