Surrounded by 10 hectares of olive groves,vineyards and gardens, Poggio alle Corti provides the perfect retreat for those wanting to relax in full Tuscan style.

The house dates back to the 13th century and is surrounded by a 180 degree veranda from which there are uninterrupted, south,east and west facing views over the local countryside.

A typical day at Poggio alle Corti holds a variety of options. One can rest by the beautiful stone-lined pool and sunbathe to the gentle sound of the white doves cooing in their nearby dovecote. For those wanting some peace and quiet there are plenty of tranquil spots where one can sit and read, or simply absorb the view and atmosphere of this most beautiful of places. The more energetic can play Bocce (Petanque) on the houses own shaded pitch or there is always tennis on the astroturf court.

The interior of the house is an appealing blend of comfort and elegance. One can either choose to eat in the large dining room or for more informal meals there is the fully equipped and welcoming kitchen. Of course eating “al fresco” on the veranda is the most popular choice. In the evenings there is the ground floor drawing room where there is a television or one can retreat to the spacious library upstairs. Alternatively one can opt for a game of snooker on the full size table.

The rooms themselves are all tastefully decorated and guests will love the en suite master bedroom and private terrace with sunset views.

With a renowned restaurant within a brief walk guests might find it difficult to leave this perfect corner of Tuscany!
