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.

  • Tuscan menu together with the owners family: 20.- EUR / person

This was our first trip to Italy and to Tuscany. Torre di Firenze was the perfect introduction to a beautiful country and region. The apartment and it's amenities exceeded our expectations. The gardens were lovely and the owner was gracious. Nearby Pontassieve was a nice town and was central for train travel to other sites.

This was the best place we have ever stayed. Our hosts were excellent and very helpful. The property itself was beautiful, well stocked with the daily necessities (especially the kitchen) and very beautiful. It was exactly what we were looking for and we would like to return. Dealing with your agency was very easy and all responses from you were prompt and to the point. Thanks again. I have recommended your website to others.
