Castello di Poppiano is perched on the cascading hills of Tuscany. Only a short drive from Florence, it is located in Montespertoli and belongs to the Guicciardini family. A very powerful name in Tuscany, Guicciardini housed many Florentine masterpieces in this castle during the difficult times of World War II.

Poppiano is not very big but perfect for a day to just relax and enjoy wine or go for a bike ride in the Tuscan hills. The castle has a production of olive oil and wine going on since the 15th century. There were also several varieties to taste and purchase in a shop at the entrance. Make sure you climb the tower of the castle and pass through old barrels of wine stored in the cellar to see those lush green views!
