About the neighbourhood
San Gimignano (14km), possibly Italy’s most famous small town, is only a 20 minute drive.

How to get there
Railway: Certaldo: 20.0 km
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.
