La Leopoldina is a beautiful, and very old 6-bedroom manor house dating back to the late 1800s.

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, La Leopoldina is a beautiful, and very old manor house dating back to the late 1800s. It sits on a sunny hillside and forms part of the farm estate; Podere di Pomaio. The 23 hectare estate is covered with olive groves, vineyards, woodland and produces organic olive oil, Chianti wine, honey, saffron, fruit and vegetables. In the grounds you will find the "Botteghina", a small shop, where you may purchase all the organic products of the farm and there also is a restaurant in the grounds where you can enjoy delicious Tuscan meals on request.

The house is surrounded by a garden of 5,000m² from which there are breath-taking views to the hills across the valley and down to the town of Arezzo. Close to the house, the private swimming pool is the highlight in the garden. There are many picturesque footpaths running through the grounds, inviting guests to explore and take long walks. Arezzo, a lovely town with a magnificent historical centre, is under 4 miles away and there are numerous museums, boutique shops and churches to explore. Leopoldina is also well-placed to visit Florence, Siena, Perugia and many other smaller but equally interesting towns. They are all within easy driving distance and definitely worth a visit. Less than a mile from the estate there is a picturesque small church which is still in use, and a very good restaurant.
