Villa il Pozzo is situated 10 minutes drive from Certaldo, is equi distant from Florence and Siena and is 20 minutes drive from San Gimiginano. Perfect for exploring Tuscany. We were there for the first 2 weeks of April 2012. This is a beautiful ancient property with its own excellent winery. It has a number of large beautifully decorated apartments with fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside. We were made to feel more than welcome by our hosts the Gori family. If you want to relax in tasteful splendour and beauty this the place for you. We have just taken delivery of the delicious Tenuta della Luia wine they produce here and when we return to Tuscany it will be to stay at the lovely Villa il Pozzo.

Our guests may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the Villa and taste the excellent Chianti wine and Olive Oil produced by the farm. Stucco, frescoes, and high hand-painted ceilings make Villa Il Pozzo the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation.
