Description
Description

The space

The estate Poggio ai Gelsi is comprised of three buildings: the main house in stone, closed at the moment, and two lodges that offer accommodation in three housing units. The buildings have been restored taking care of every detail while maintaining the traditional Tuscan features: exposed beams and terracotta floors. The furniture consists of a few pieces of antique and modern furniture. The large outdoor area offers several quiet corners where everyone can find their favourite place to relax and enjoy the nature...a beautiful paved square garden with fruit trees, cypresses and olive trees and the beautiful infinity pool that is located on the centre of a natural terrace overlooking the valley.

Melograno
On the right side of the cottage centrally located is the apartment Melograno.With a few steps you reach the living room with kitchenette, dining table and sofa with fireplace. A small hallway with closet leads to the bathroom and to a double bedroom with satellite-TV.

Interaction with guests

If you have any questions, you can contact Signora Vania. She will give you also the best insider tips: where you can have a wine tasting, buy good wine, typical culinary specialties like the noodle “Pici”, sheep cheese from Pienza, the excellent beef "Chianina", ham or salami from wild boar.
She likes to give you recommendations for a typical restaurant with the renowned Tuscan cuisine, the numerous attractions and shopping for example beautiful terracotta vases.

The neighbourhood

We are in Val D' Orcia near Pienza, the typical Renaissance city, a UNESCO world heritage site. Its surroundings are Montepulciano and Montalcino, two cities and lands of great wines; Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo and San Casciano dei Bagni, are places with thermal spring and of great interest.

Getting around

Arezzo, Siena, Perugia and Florence are close together so you can make a vacation complete with art, culture, nature, food and wine all at your fingertips. And of course Florence!

Other things to note

The estate Poggio ai Gelsi is located in the south of Tuscany between the hills of Val d'Orcia, Siena and halfway between Montepulciano and Pienza. The property enjoys a magnificent view over Montichiello and Pienza. The colours of the nature in this corner of Tuscany are beautiful and change day after day, with different nuances. Various shades of green, yellow ocher, grey, charcoal and so much more ..... a show!
