Torre Doganiera storia+green energy

Pod. La Croce - Pievescola, n° 63 - n° 63 - 53031 Casole d'Elsa - Siena - Italy

History + Green Economy: Agriturismo Torre Doganiera awaits you in the green Tuscan hills - Siena! Since 1989 we have been working to combine nature and culture, hospitality in 3 comfortable and spacious apartments, a room with kitchenette and lots of greenery!

Torre Doganiera, on the "physical place" we can tell you: medieval house and tower, then farm, company devoted to renewable energy for over 20 years, ancient walls embraced by the evergreen forest and the olive grove. We are immersed in the trees, our green keepers.

Something about the "metaphorical place": Torre Doganiera is a family that shares a tourist and agricultural activity, since 1989, first in the town of Casole d'Elsa (Siena).

Our mission: hospitality, sustainability, fusion of history + nature + culture and respect.

Torre Doganiera is not a big place, but it is probably a "big place", we have only 3 apartments (the Tower, the Olives, the Sunflowers) and a delightful Iris Room (mini apartment with kitchenette), which takes its name from the purple flowers that in Spring welcome the awakening of our guests.

Each housing solution has independent access, maximum privacy, private garden and outdoor pergola (or covered brick terrace), lots of greenery and flowers, a synergy of vines that make the house alive. The interiors of the apartments are furnished with care, in a rustic style, but without neglecting a certain elegance in the details (see our photos!). The floors are in terracotta and wooden beams, well-insulated houses, since the structure is insulated in order to avoid energy waste and ensure optimal temperatures both in the hot months and in winter.
In some cases, such as in the app room. Ulivi, where the headboard is an ancient manger, or in the Tower (three floors of the Middle Ages and panorama), are the architectures themselves that tell the story of the house.
The kitchens of the apartments and the Iris Room are well equipped and feature the convenience of household appliances powered - especially on sunny days - with sustainable systems (you will find dishwashers, microwaves, induction plates).

Whatever your choice, you will find splendid complete houses with independent entrance, private bathroom, private and equipped outdoor area, fenced property, small park under the wood with chairs, hammocks, deck chairs, picnic tables, to listen to the voices of nature, meditate , enjoy a bath of fireflies, count the stars from the farmyard, marvel in the olive grove. You will be able to see beauty in every season: the change of color of the autumn leaves, the very yellow fields of summer and the green of the foliage of the forest, the silver of the olive trees, the color palette of the blooms in spring, the snow d ' Winter.

Torre Doganiera is an ideal location for holidays in harmony with nature, away from sources of pollution (light, visual, acoustic), perfect for traveling as a couple, with friends, with children or with your four-legged friends. We welcome astronomical observations and astrophotography sessions, we are happy to receive yoga and meditation lovers. The spaces are at your disposal and it will not be rare to see a fox or fallow deer and roe deer pass by, just as you take a walk around the house!

From Torre Doganiera there are trekking, bike and mtb trails, you will find maps and information from us; stables are not far away, as well as bike and e-bike rentals and guided tours (one of the services offered by the area) within a few kilometers. Nature trips, info on cards for access to museums in the Sienese area, information on tasting activities, tours and other curiosities to discover the area.

Let us carry you by following the thought of a holiday as you have never thought it before!

The geographical context in which Torre Doganiera is located, a green corner of the world in a natural reserve in the hills of the Montagnola Senese (Alta Valdelsa side), has pushed us even more to love for life, to respect the laws of nature and willingness to share such a strong beauty potential with those who want to experience the deep connection with (starry) sky and earth. The far-sighted prospect of Roberto and Maria of relying on solar energy and drawing on renewables has been able to make consumption and holidays more sustainable over the years. In the following generation, this position was perfectly combined with Alessandra's desire to merge nature and cultural assets, with an archaeological and historical contribution to the vision of the territory.

A combination that tells of the house and how this land between Siena and Volterra, San Gimignano and Chianti, can offer a lot, from an environmental, historical point of view, agri-food variability, the wonder of bathing rivers and blue waters, immersed in the green, as are the nearby sources of Elsa and the beautiful area of Val di Merse.

In the meantime, take a look at the photos of our green corner and then contact us!

Thanks and ...
Enjoy the green !!
