    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.

First is a fact that Azzura is well situated within easy reach of Pisa (airport) by road and nicely placed to visit Siena, Florence and the world heritage site of San Gimignano to name just a... more

Once arriving we were immediately delighted by the amenities and that country view. It was the perfect place to recharge after two weeks of hectic sight seeing through northetn Italy. All that you would wish to see of Tuscany was only an hour's drive away. more

We have just spent a fabulous two weeks at Azzurra on our family holiday. What a truly idyllic spot! Stunning location with breathtaking views surrounding the property . In our opinion Azzurra is the best situated property on the complex - sunshine all day and total privacy if wanted. It has three outdoor seating areas so surveying the changing vista... more
