A beautiful boutique hotel with just nine rooms and plenty of charm, Poggio Piglia is nestled in the verdant Tuscan countryside, near Chiusi. The hotel is set amongst nineteen hectares of shaded woodland, sleepy olive groves and rich vineyards, and has a picturesque, traditional exterior that fits in perfectly with the rural surroundings. Inside, the hotel is a feast for the eyes: stunning, contemporary interiors show an exquisite attention to detail, and the bold design is complimented by touches of the historical building, with wooden beams and oak floors. In a nod to Tuscany’s exceptional artistic heritage, the hotel features contemporary artwork by Cosimo Andrisano throughout.
The restaurant at Poggio Piglia has a strikingly bold contemporary design, with wide windows offering beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside. Meals are inspired by Tuscan flavours, using the freshest and finest local produce; including the hotel’s own olive oil, made on the estate.
The nine bedrooms have a stylish décor that blends contemporary design with traditional features such as characterful beamed ceilings. We particularly love the spacious bathrooms, with glass-enclosed showers and modern fixtures against a soft backdrop of natural stone walls. Some of the rooms have gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside.
The infinity pool, decked out in travertine stone, is a beautiful spot for lounging during hot Tuscan summer days, and in the colder months the hotel is heated, so you can still enjoy an invigorating splash. Italy, and Tuscany in particular, is famed for its fabulous food, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn the culinary secrets behind this cuisine at one of the cooking classes offered at Poggio Piglia. You’ll learn how to make regional specialities as well as Italian classics, using fresh, local produce- including olive oil and Sangiovese wine produced on the hotel’s estate.
The hotel is well-placed for exploring the historic villages and charming towns of Tuscany. Chiusi is just a short drive away, and is home to one of the oldest cathedrals in Tuscany, standing since the 6th-century. Of course a visit to Tuscany wouldn't be the same with a wine tasting or two and between Florence and Siena lie the most famous Italian wine producers including the Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano producers.
