The Estate


Enjoy a unique and relaxing experience. Nestled in the splendid setting of the Tuscan countryside, you can bask in the beauty of the landscape and immerse yourself in the history of the territory in which the Tenuta i Mandorli is located.

The estate is located on top of a hill, in the heart of the Alta Valdera National Park. The Tuscan Apennine mountains frame one of the finest wine regions in Italy. A few minutes from Volterra, 50 minutes away from Pisa and Florence, the estate covers an area of ​​60 hectares where you can explore the woods as well as the green valleys covered with colorful wild flowers.

The estate and surrounding area was used by the Templars who, according to documents in the Volterra synod of 1358, had built mansions where they could sojourn and refresh their horses, as well as escape persecution.
The estate was recently restored by Dr. Bruno Bardi, a veterinarian, who in 1966 bought the property and established a thriving thoroughbred horse farm, where he bred race horses for many decades. Tenuta i Mandorli, now a Country Resort, has been designed to guarantee maximum hospitality and relaxation to all its guests. The apartments, in classic Tuscan style, are rich in history as well as equipped with all the modern comforts necessary to assure an extremely enjoyable and relaxing experience.

The estate features an extensive enchanting forest which you can explore and where you can enjoy long walks.  While meandering on its many paths you can see deer and many other animals in their natural habitat.  Being rich in mushrooms and truffles, the Estate organizes truffle hunts so you can gather these delights and prepare delicious truffle-based dinners in your own kitchen in our apartments.

We wholeheartedly advise you to explore the Estate and its surroundings. Imagine biking, hiking , or riding on a horse through typical Tuscan scenery, following the wine trail through the hills of Pisa, and discovering hidden gems in a land where vineyards and olive trees beckon all around. Feast your eyes on endless fields of grain and fill your heart with the scent of the Mediterranean countryside.

A unique and relaxing experience awaits you. Against the spectacular backdrop of the Tuscan countryside, you can enjoy the breathtaking views and the history surrounding Tenuta I Mandorli.
