Poggio Piglia in Tuscany’s ancient countryside offers a truly memorable for guests staying in any of their nine-room bucolic retreat surrounded by beautiful landscape of Tuscan valleys and vineyards. The ambiance here is relaxed and romantic. The interiors are modern yet rustic, adorned with many sculptural designer furnishings (Philippe Starck’s ghost chairs) and artworks. Guests start their day with a delicious buffet breakfast featuring locally sourced produce prepared by Chef Salvatori Consoli.
Although there is no room service, the hotel restaurant that enjoys a panoramic view with its glass ceiling and walls also serves lunch and dinner, plus there are shops and restaurants within easy reach of the hotel should guests decide to dine outside the hotel. Make sure to try the hotel’s own garnet-red special Sangiovese grape wine either at informal wine tastings at the bar, or at any of the cozy communal spaces like the gardens, lounges, or out on your terrace. If you feel the need to burn off some calories then there is an infinity pool next to an herb garden and strolling around the charming hotel grounds surrounded by 900 year old olive trees (they also produce their own olive oil) is highly recommended.
