The farmhouse Podere Palazzone "Toscana on horseback" is located in the countryside at the border of the Berignone Forest, the biggest Natural Reserve of Tuscany, distancing 1 km from the centre of the medieval village of Pomarance, Province Pisa, Italy. Here you enjoy a spectacular view of the classical Tuscan hills of Upper Cecina Valley and the ancient Etruscan town of Volterra, famous today also for being the scenery of the bestseller "Twilight". On the horizon appears the sea and the often snowed up Alpi Apuane. At one hour drive there is the low-cost airport of Pisa, well served by Ryanair.

The great thing about Pomarance is its very central location within Tuscany. From this natural paradise one hour is needed to reach all those things that make Tuscany one of the preferred European holiday destinations: The cities of art of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano, the Etruscan sites of Populonia and Vetulonia, the sea and the Elba Island. We are surrounded by enchanting medieval towns, famous vine streets, thermal baths, cathedrals, castles and lots of attractions for teenagers and children.

We are proudly part of the district "nobil contrada del MARZOCCO" represented by the lion, symbol of the dominance by the Florentines until 1472. Still today, from the bottom of the ancient civic tower, he keeps an eye on us. Each September the four districts of Pomarance fight for the Palio delle Contrade and the whole town turns into a medieval marketplace.
The farmhouse Podere Palazzone and its horse riding stud is located in plain countryside at 1 km from the old centre of Pomarance.

You reach it by the road S.S.439 after the roundabout of Pomarance direction Massa Marittima / Larderello. After 500 m there is a gas station on the right hand side. Take the first street on the left after another 200 m, Via del Palagetto, following the signs "Trekking Maneggio". Turn again left after 100 m. At the end of the cypress alley you reach a huge secular oak, which marks the entry of the stud Podere Palazzone. Welcome!
