Il Torrino Country Resort

The history of Torrino

From the Middle Ages to today.
A place full of history

The origin of Torrino dates back to 1400 when the turrett of the main building was used as a watchtower in order to keep the roads that went from Pisa to Montaione under surveillance.

In time it became a typical farmhouse of the Tuscan countryside with a barn, a haystack, a vegetable garden, a yard and a well. Everything was at the heart of the farm and it used to produce everything that the farmer and the master needed.

Originally he apartments Leonardo and Magnifico were once an ancient kiln.
Limestone would be extracted from underground and used for building. We can still see the old kiln today.

Since 1997, Torrino belongs to the Lassi Bertelli Family who tend to this enchanting place with love and dedication, turning it into a corner of paradise both for the eyes and for the soul.

Who we are

Our history

In 1997 my family was mesmerized by the beauty of this place and decided to buy the country estate of Torrino. In those days the property was made up of the old main building, the barn and the pool.

The rest of the buildings (some old houses and the kiln were surrounded and covered by lush and wild woodland.

Emilio, my father, decided to leave office life and the family company, the Lionella, to devote himself completely to the ‘rebirth’ of Torrino, uncovering wonderful beauty year after year.

The wood has since been pruned and, thanks to great renovation and upgrading work, Torrino Country Resort was born.

It’s been a “son” for my father. Today with love, great care, commitment and protection I tend to it and nurture it so that it remains the magical place that it once was. The place where guests can live unique experiences to cherish and where you will always find your house in Tuscany.
