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
A big big “THANK YOU“ to Antonio, Alexandra, Gabriella, Valentina and the other people in the background whom we don’t know by name for making our 10 days vacations in Tuscany a perfect and very relaxing stay!
There are many positive things to mention about this location, which I will do below, but the most important for me are really the people who work here. So much truly friendliness and helpfulness which we experienced every day… you don’t find this a lot anymore in the world. So, thanks again to all of you at Poggio Piglia!
The whole property is very well equipped. A perfect mix of the old traditional and modern amenities. Our room was very clean on arrival and tidied up well every day. They only have 9 rooms in the main building and 2 in separate small houses. This gives a more family feeling – no mass tourism.
The pool is refreshing after a sunny time in the garden and has an amazing view.
The breakfast was always a nice start into the day. I would say a good mix of Italian and intercontinental buffet on the sunny terrace.
The dinner was very tasty, made fresh and individual respecting our wishes (e.g. vegetarian for my wife). Of course their own red wine is perfect, especially the one from 2013.
The staff had good suggestions for “what to do“ in the area at all time. Everyone of them suggested personal tips to us. From 20 minutes to 2 hours driving you will reach a lot of historical and interesting locations in Tuscany..
We definitely recommend this Hotel and will come again in the next years for sure!
Wifi… Yes, WiFi is available indoor and outdoor, but not really needed to relax in this location :-)
Gabriella and Valentina made this stay so amazing - they were kind, friendly, helpful and made it their goal to ensure we had a wonderful and relaxing time. The hotel was lovely, pool setting amazing and the breakfast spread was to die for. The location was perfect as we were able to access many nearby towns via car. Thank you for a wonderful experience and we hope to be back soon!
Absolutely delicious food and amazing place to stay! Stunning views over Chiusi Would love to go back next Summer! Thomas the chef cooked exquisite food and Antonio looked after us well, a real delight! Jojo & Hugo
