At the end of a tree-flanked gravel path, surrounded by the rolling hills where Tuscany borders Lazio and Umbria, lies Poggio Piglia. Opened in 2010 after a painstaking seven-year restoration, the retreat brings contemporary artwork, modern amenities and designer furnishings to the ancient Italian countryside. The main living area features a rustic fireplace, exposed brick details and comfy lounge chairs, plus a taste of the modern art collection that gives the restored property its fresh and contemporary feel.
Bed and Bath
Each of the nine bedrooms retains the heavy beamed ceiling of the original building, and some feature working fireplaces. Yet despite the original features, the crisp palette of white and red creates a thoroughly modern feel. The spacious Deluxe Rooms have the added benefits of deep Jacuzzi tubs and countryside views. One lucky room even sports a romantic four-poster bed.
Thanks to the hotel’s compact size, it can be enjoyed in almost complete privacy. The panoramic terrace is perfect for unwinding with a glass of Poggio Piglia’s own wine, and the beautiful sundeck and swimming pool demand daylong lazing. The in-house restaurant serves locally produced traditional Tuscan cuisine (made with the hotel’s own olive oil). Here again, the panoramic views are on show through the floor-to-ceiling windows, while glass tables and Philippe Starck–designed ghost chairs add to the bright and airy atmosphere. Or for diversions away from the hotel, the rolling hills of the Val d’Orcia — what you think of as textbook Tuscany — lies just beyond the neighboring spa town, Chianciano Terme.
How to Get There
Stayed just one night after staying elsewhere in Tuscany.
Hotel is less rustic than it appears - feels very lush both in landscape and in the hotel itself versus the more rustic parts of Tuscany. Close to a main road so easy to access esp from Rome.
Food was great in the restaurant both dinner and breakfast.
Pool looked amazing - too cold to go in but gorgeous.
We spent five wonderful days at this friendly family owned hotel. We were in a deluxe room which was bright and modern with a large luxurious bathroom. The hotel is well situated to visit all the beautiful Tuscan hill villages and towns. The staff were friendly and attentive ensuring our stay was relaxed with excellent food and drink. We met the owners who were kind enough to involve those in the dining room in the birthday celebrations of their son. Special mention should be made of Fiorella for all the assistance with our plans. Highly recommended for a Tuscan visit.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights as part of our Italian honeymoon.
I had previously emailed the hotel to enquire about special deals upon which they gave us an upgraded room with one nights dinner and a bottle of prosecco on arrival.
All of that was waiting for us without any issues and we were so pleased we had enquired.
It was our first stop after landing in Italy, we drove from Rome airport and arrived quite late. Check in was super easy and the staff were so welcoming and saved us a spot for dinner.
The food at the hotel was fantastic, we ate dinner twice during our stay and had lunch once and honestly each time it was beautiful. Not to mention the wine which we bought to bring home with us as we loved it so much.
Breakfast was ideal, we could chose to have bacon and eggs along with the selection of breakfast food they had laid out. My husband made the absolute most of that!
All of the staff were so lovely and helpful and helped us decide where to visit whilst staying in that area. Thanks to their help we visited Montepulciano, Pienza, Bagni san filippo, chianciano Terme. We would have liked to go into Siena also but didn't get chance.
We spent one day by the pool at the hotel and it was perfect, around the pool were a few other guests but it was still peaceful as everybody was so relaxed.
The honesty bar worked perfectly for us and we spent the day sipping aperol spritz in the sun.
I would definitely return here and will be informing friends and family of it also.
This hotel is situated in a lovely old building and has the potential to be excellent, however it just misses the opportunity in various places to take it to that next level - which is why I would rate it as good, not excellent.
It’s the small things that matter - there is very odd artwork all over, which has a strange ‘New Orleans / Deep South USA theme’ - it seems at odds with the beautiful Tuscan building or Italian decor. Other small things to note would be the loud commercial music played at breakfast time, this should be a peaceful time to relax - guests do not want to have music blaring over speakers whilst trying to enjoy a relaxing breakfast. The restaurant too, whilst it opens on to a lovely backdrop - is cluttered with odd clear plastic dining chairs that are, at best, distasteful.
Our room was also nice, but again, had strange artwork and odd lighting fixtures in it. A genuine missed opportunity to fill it with lovely sympathetic items of furniture. I could go on, detailing small bits and pieces that really should matter to a guest when staying at a hotel of this bracket.
Overall, the staff were lovely, and we enjoyed our stay. Would I stay there again? Probably not, there are other hotels in the area that are better for a similar price. It could be amazing, but just falls short, unfortunately.
One of the cleanest, most modern boutique hotel we've stayed in. We had a quadruple room and sized was just right. The entire staff - front desk and kitchen - were very friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast was superb and hearty - good to start your day. Would definitely return if possible and can highly recommend. Only critic I have is that the lighting in the rooms can be improved a bit.
