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
Lovely staff who were attentive and friendly from the moment we stepped foot in the hotel. The rooms and hotel itself was stunning and immaculate. The only downside was that we didn't stay long enough!
The team at Poggio Piglia made our stay great with a lovely welcome and friendly, helpful service and advice throughout our stay. Lots of great recommendations about things to see locally. Great food and wine, although slightly more frequent changes of dinner menu would be a bonus. Thank you all. See you again soon.
went onto ba.com to book a short break in Tuscany and Poggio Piglia jumped out at us so we booked, absolutely the right decision. It was perfect, peaceful with absolutely stunning views and surroundings set in the olive grove and vine yards and just paradise. Form the moment we arrived we were made to feel special with a really warm welcome with nothing a trouble to anyone. Our late arrival was not a problem and we were able to get a meal without any fuss or bother. There was plenty of food and choice for breakfast and we ate in the restaurant each night as the food was so good and reasonably priced. The Poggio Piglia wine and the olive oil was excellent. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom jacuzzi and walk-in shower, plenty of towels and robes. Whilst there we had a cookery lesson with very patient chefs thoroughly recommend this if you like pasta.Giuseppe in the restaurant was very attentive and carefully explained everything on the menu and passed on his knowledge of the area as did Fiorella who ran the place with Chef Fabrizio. We were sad to leave and when we did all the staff came to see of. We shall return
Would make a stunning venue for a wedding but ideal for an anniversary break
Very rarely does one go somewhere that you just can not fault apart from our stay being far to short.
We went back to Poggio Piglia for a second time in less than 3 years after having the FONDEST memories of the property, staff and service. The property is still gorgeous, and a great value for the money. Unfortunately it seems the staff has completely turned over since our last visit which was a big disappointment. For such a small hotel the staff lacked a personal touch, there was no drive to offer services or interact with us- compared to other hotels we visited on this trip it came as a distinct difference. The one exception is Guiseppe the dinner waiter who was incredibly personable. I'd recommend this hotel up it's commitment to customer service to stay relevant! Offering to serve a drink to someone sitting by the pool or outside, having someone staffed who could serve a drink before 6pm at night, etc...
Staying at Poggio Piglia was a highlight of our Italy trip. To find a villa that is as small and personalized as this with such beauty and modern amenities is rare. The staff was attentive to our every need and they all knew us. We traveled with two young teens and the staff was happy to see the kids and wanted them to enjoy their stay. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The grounds were beautiful and the structure was out of a movie. Our rooms were more than sufficient and the bathroom was beautiful and completely updated. The included breakfast was incredible and we enjoyed eating dinner on property. We left Poggio Piglia wanted desperately to return!
