    How to get there
    Railway: Certaldo: 12.4 mi
    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.

I stayed at Azzura for one month, and I loved it! I was able to relax, work (I know that sounds contradictory, but I needed to write, and I was able to clear a serious writer's block), exercise, learn about historic villages, cook fantastic fresh food, eat at quaint restaurants, and meet lovely people. Azzura is in the country, so... more

My mother, aunt and I stayed there for 2 weeks in mid-September and couldn't have been happier with our experience! The house is just as it's pictured...cozy and serene, with an attention to every detail. Beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside all around! We loved everything about it...cooking in the Tuscan kitchen, coffee and breakfast on the outdoor patios, the...

Everyone comments on the views, and justifiably so. From the west-facing gable end wall you can relax and watch the sun set well away from any slight noises other apartments might theoretically get from the poolside, with only the drone of bees feeding on the extensive lavender planting. Inside, next to an outdoor dining area with lots of herb bushes,... more
