The atmosphere that surrounds the farm reconciles you with nature. It’s easy to get lost in the beauty of the surrounding hills of Pomaio’s oasis, the nearby valleys, the city of Arezzo, Valdichiana, and the Chianti hills which close upon the western horizon. From the farm you will feel like you are flying over the city while relaxing in an eco-friendly wine resort just like the wine does in its barrels.
This quintessential Tuscan villa is designed with four overlapping arches in twos and is surrounded by a beautiful garden with a private pool facing a breathtaking view. The villa was built in the late 1800s probably over a ruin of which today any information has been lost. The recent renovation that took place in the villa has followed the stricter sustainability principles complying with this estate style that made Podere di Pomaio/Pomaio • Green Winery famous in the design and wine world.
The villa’s name comes from the big and colorful almond tree that surrounds the house. In springtime, when this same almond tree blooms, it is also visible from the city of Arezzo. Thanks to its strong scent and guests love to spend their time watching the vibrant petals dance in the wind. Here at Podere di Pomaio/Pomaio • Green Winery every renovation is compliant with the environmental friendly philosophy. This villa has been recently renovated following the highest of quality standards in terms of design as was used for the Leopoldina mansion. The particular private pool is accessible only from the villa’s loggia or the elegant glass doors both located on the ground floor. Once reached you will notice the Mediterranean vegetation surrounding it.
This house was built in the XII century following the construction of the Romanesque church of Pomaio. By doing so the settlers started repopulating an important and historical agricultural area since the Etruscans time. Since 2001 Il Casolare has been the background of many happy moments of our guests. Thanks to its wood stove and fireplace located at the ground floor, our guests have taken part in many “epic” nights battling to see whose ragu sauce, bread, pasta, pizza, chianina steak and vegetables from our organic fields were the best.
Walking for the first time into the Podere di Pomaio • Green Winery estate is simply a unique experience. In this oasis our guests can taste organic wines cultivated on the 550 meters plateau.
