The medieval garden, cultivated and well-groomed by the owners of TORRE DI FIRENZE is a peculiar attraction of this property. Uphill from the house there is a space with olive trees, which reaches the edge of the woods (the forest has always represented a limit between the known and unknown world).
North of the house they placed the “pomario,” where the fruit trees are cultivated; east the “verzario” which has the most exposure and is perfect for the culture of vegetables. South in the more intimate and “closed” area the most precious plants: herbs, flowers and a few fruit trees, which mix with wild species before returning to the domain of the woods. This area is chosen for contemplation.
