The agriturismo

Located in the small hamlet on the Montagnola Senese, between Siena, S. Gimignano and Volterra, the farmhouse takes its name from an ancient medieval watchtower carefully restored. In a panoramic position, the three apartments and the guest room are surrounded by olive groves and woods, in an ideal setting for relaxation and holidays in the company of 4-legged friends.

Very close to the major art cities of Tuscany, the landscape itself around Torre Doganiera is a sort of open-air museum, a perfect mix of the rural culture that has shaped this land and amazing architecture.

The accommodation

The apartments, in Tuscan style (with sail and barrel ceilings, terracotta-tiled floors, chestnut beams) and independent accesses, have private garden and furnished outdoor pergola, as well as an additional common surrounding area. Fresh in summer and warm in winter, they are equipped with satellite TV, DVD, Hi-Fi, safe, telephone, tourist guides; the kitchens are complete with a 4-burner hob, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave, electric horticulture, mocha, etc..

It is also available a bedroom with bathroom, independent entrance, private and equipped outdoor area. By combining this room with the Girasoli apartment you get an ideal accommodation for 2 couples or families.

In common, large room with board games, books and magazines, large screen TV projector for sports events and PlayStation, barbecue and tables with wooden benches, small laundry with washing machine, table tennis, swing, hammock, archery, foosball table.


Amazing are the sunsets and the silence, from Torre Doganiera!

Activities and surrounding

The farm is located in the heart of the protected area of Montagnola Senese, which offers fascinating astronomical observations (thanks to the absence of light pollution) and also naturalistic observations, both day and night.


In the surrounding area, various trails for walking, trekking and mountain biking in the Chianti hills.

From 15 to 60 minutes by car you can reach the main art centers, spas, wellness centers, but also the river, the sea and the mountains! We are talking about places known throughout the world and indescribable beauty, such as Siena (35 minutes) and Florence (50 minutes), where every palace is a concentration of wonder, every corner tells a story and food and wine are superb. Let's talk about the Tyrrhenian coast, also full of cultural and gastronomic proposals, but also of entertainment. We are also talking about the south of the province of Siena, a mix of organic farms, spas, spas and springs still in their natural state.


For services, the nearest town is the hamlet of Pievescola, where there is a bar, pastry shop, restaurant, a small market, pharmacy and post office. A little further on, in Colle Val d'Elsa (15 minutes) and Poggibonsi (25 minutes), guests will have a wide choice of restaurants, pubs and clubs open until late at night.

Pleased to meet you, I am Maria Vara and I am 62 years old.

The photo is of me and my daughter, Alessandra, nata nel 1987

I have been managing Torre Doganiera since 1989 along with my family.

As well as we welcome the guests, we are responsible for communication, we take care of the crops.

It was a desire to to meet new and interesting people all the time which led me to run an agriturismo.

Our guests' favourite thing about Torre Doganiera is the warm family welcome.
