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 June 1st to September 30.

Four friends traveling throughout Italy for three weeks landed at Azzurra for our last week. We landed in a piece of heaven. There are so many reasons why this is a wonderful rental. First, the views. They are awe-inspiring. Second, the beds. We stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels previous to landing at Azzurra and the beds at Azzurra...

We had one of our best vacations here at the Azzurra Villa. Mary Ann is wonderful and her instructions impeccable. Had a great Italian gourmet dinner at the villa one night cooked by Chef Laura. This is not the U.S. so there are a few quirky things you will need to adjust to when you are here such as the... more

Our stay was very enjoyable. The location is very quiet and beautiful while still being within a short drive of many of the places we wanted to visit. It was a great place to "base" ourselves as we discovered the beauty of Tuscany. We took the train to Florence and Seina and drove to many other places. The house was... more

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.
