Villa il Poggino
An oasis of tranquillity in the heart of the “Crete Senesi”, the clay hills of Siena, only minutes away
from the towns of Siena, Montalcino and Pienza.
Villa il Poggino is surrounded by 5 hectares of farmland and enjoys breath-taking all-round views
of the surrounding Tuscan hills. The Villa, a red brick farmhouse in traditional Tuscan style dating
back to the 17th century, is located at the centre of a large garden, about one hectare in size.
Outside the Villa are two loggias, one furnished as an outdoor lounge adjacent to the living room, and another adjacent to the kitchen, set up for al fresco dining.
Just a few meters from the villa the property features a large 500 square metre, wooden decked, pool area with a 14×6 metre infinity pool, two large shady gazebos and a dining area with an outdoor kitchen. There is also a bocce court in the garden.
The property also includes a wellness area consisting of a sauna and a panoramic loggia with a large jacuzzi tub.
Only a few metres from the villa are endless pathways just waiting to be explored on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, while medieval hamlets are less than half an hour’s drive away. In the cooler seasons, the hydromassage tub and sauna are perfect for relaxing and unwinding after a long walk or a truffle hunting experience before sitting down in front of the travertine fireplace.
The Villa measures more than 300 square metres on two levels and sleeps ten guests in five comfortable double rooms with ensuite bathrooms. The farmhouse was completely renovated in 2021 using prestigious materials such as stone, travertine, parquet and corten, blending contemporary style and design with the characteristic features of Tuscan farmhouses.
The central part of the ground floor is a living area, decorated in elegant, practical contemporary style. Special care has been taken in the choice of materials, including local travertine from the quarries in Rapolano, corten and aged parquet, and in the lighting design.
