Rustic charm meets modern art at this intimate nine-room retreat overlooking Tuscany's vineyards and valleys
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.
