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
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
We drove down through a long avenue of trees to a beautiful tuscan house. The welcome was friendly, and, being a group of eight we took up 3 rooms in this hotel. The rooms were large & luxurious with views across the tuscan countryside. It was during the height of the European heatwave but the air conditioning kept our rooms at a very comfortable temperature. The choice of food at breakfast was great with cooked food as well as continental meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurts & local breads & cakes. We sat at a long table overlooking the beautiful landscaped gardens & olive trees. We relaxed around the very clean pool looking across the tuscan valley.
The dinners gave plenty of choice with meats, pasta & vegetarian dishes. The staff, especially Alexandra, were very helpful giving suggestions on where to visit in the neighbouring areas.
Antonio & Gabriella were also very friendly & helpful. What a wonderful find for a relaxing time in beautiful surroundings.
We had a 2 nights stay with 2 kids in this lovely establishment. Antonio was there to give us a warm welcome as we entered and helped us bring the luggage to the second floor as there were only stairs. We stayed in room 7 looking out the garden. The room was nice and clean with shabby Tuscan charm. There’s a pool by the garden and the plants were beautiful. I had to constantly remind the kids to stay quiet as there were mainly couples in the pool area on the first day, and I didn’t wanna ruin their romantic stay. The restaurant served fresh and delicious food, and the waiter Tomasso with long beard was always attentive and had a smile on his face. Buffet breakfast was sumptuous! I especially appreciate all the herbs, flowers and trees in the premise as they give off a nice aroma. Love the smell of lavender! We also ventured out to see to grapes and olive trees grown in their lot. This place gives us such great memory and I would love to visit again one day.
