In a world of beautiful villas, there are still some that stand out and this is one. An Italian estate in the stunning Tuscan countryside near Siena, sleeping 16 in 8 bedrooms. The long olive tree lined drive leading to the estate, prepares you for the delights that are waiting for you here. Sweeping views of the cypress clad hills and utter tranquillity make this stunning property a magic place to stay. There are 5 suites in the main house, and a further trio of dreamy bedrooms in the adjacent medieval tower.
To experience the delights of this stately home, you can gather your large group from a choice of airports: from Florence airport your transfer is only 50 minutes, from Pisa airport the drive is 1.5 hours and from Rome it is a 2.5 hour drive.
Whether for a holiday, or a special occasion, your large group can bond together at the large salt water pool surrounded by sun loungers. Here, you can indulge in the famous Italian activity of ‘farniente’ which loosely translates as ‘to hang out together’. Should you have energy for more, Villa Torre al Poggio offers croquet, ping pong and badminton. In addition, bicycles, a piano, cookery classes and a large art studio are all available to guests. In between your al fresco lunches by the pool and your aperitivi in the rotunda tower you can be as busy or as peaceful as you like. Should you be able to tear yourself away from Villa Torre al Poggio, activities beyond the estate include tennis, golf and riding, all within 30 minutes’ drive.
