Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. A glimpse of paradise at the end of the dirt road that leads to Poggio Mori, set on a knoll and suspended in the heart of the Tuscan countryside south of Siena, just outside the charming borgo of Sarteano, in an inimitable scenario of geometric patterns of extensive rows of vines and of a sea of olive trees that guard the property. In its centre appears the imposing structure of the 18th century farmhouse, now converted into a technologically-advanced luxury villa by architectural intervention of the highest quality. Protagonist is the exposed stone combined with wood and terracotta, in an impressive recycling of the past which has forged the present design, in which respect for local tradition combines with a fine choice of minimal and essential modernity, designed to offer guests all amenities for a perfect stay. The spacious rooms are a blaze of light, enhanced by the large windows in the living area and in the splendid bedrooms, super-equipped with private bathrooms; the furnishings, declined in the natural colours of wood, have plain and simple lines, geared to maximum functionality and efficiency. In an adjoining annex is a fitness area with gym equipment and a stupendous wellness area, equipped with sauna, Turkish bath and massage and treatment area (available on request). Outside, the beautiful panoramic pool, the bowling green, the cosy set-up areas and and the large green spaces will complement unforgettable days spent in the open air. Poggio Mori is the ideal choice for an exclusive stay in a charming, elegant residence that guarantees privacy and maximum tranquillity thanks to its secluded location and yet, at the same time, is very close to road and motorway links and is the perfect focal point, located between the southern Val di Chiana and the rough and wild Val d'Orcia, for exploring an amazing geographical region. Sarteano, with its architectural and naturalistic heritage and its impressive monuments within the old medieval town walls, is just ten minutes away but also not far away are the magnificent towns of Chiusi, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Chianciano Terme, San Casciano dei Bagni and many other places of historical and artistic interest with their timeless charm. This prestigious property is part of an agritourism estate committed to organic farming with the best produce that Tuscany has to offer and which continues, in the modern age, to maintain the taste of authentic tradition: excellent extra-virgin olive oil and wine from autochthonous and allochthonous vines in the aromas of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet which the owners will be delighted to offer for tasting in the fabulous multi-function room next to the house, along with other choice products like vinsanto (sweet white dessert wine), organic preserves and jams. Upon request, you can organize cooking lessons in the large professional kitchen or avail yourself of domestic staff and a chef for the entire stay.

About the area

Poggio Mori is located in the comune of Sarteano, less than three kilometres from the motorway exit of Chiusi and ten minutes from the railway station of Chiusi. Sarteano is a picturesque medieval borgo, 600 meters above sea level, situated on high ground at the foot of Monte Cetona, in an area south of Siena straddling the attractive valleys of the Valdichiana and the Val d'Orcia, recently awarded the Bandiera Arancione (orange flag) of the Touring Club Italiano for its excellent tourism and environmental standards. It is a town of surprising charm, inserted in an area of naturalistic, historical and archaeological significance. Inside the town walls, that preserve their original medieval structure, you can visit, besides the many typical workshops, architectural gems like the churches of San Francesco and of San Martino, the collegiate church and the imposing castle, a sentinel, from atop its dominant position, of suggestive panoramic views. The archeologocial Civic Museum of Sarteano, among the most important in the province, includes many relics from the Etruscan period to the late Roman period. Also in Sarteano are some of the most important Etruscan tombs of Tuscany, including the well-preserved Tomb of the Infernal Quadriga, dating from the fourth century BC and which can be visited by appointment at the museum. About 6 km away is the town of Chiusi, with its historic town centre perched on top of a hill overlooking the Valdichiana, famous for the Etruscan remains which have been found all over its territory and now housed in the internationally important Etruscan National Archeological Museum. Famous, and open to the public, is the Labyrinth of Re Porsenna, situated under the Piazza del Duomo, in reality an old water supply system branching through intricate underground tunnels. In this magical territory the vitality of the land is substantiated through its therapeutic waters that are transformed into well-being, which you can experience at the avant-garde spa facilities of Chianciano, Bagni San Filippo, San Casciano dei Bagni, Montepulciano or Bagno Vignoni, all just a short distance from the property. Wine and food lovers can visit the nearby towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino, famous for their prestigious wines, and Pienza, where you can sample the typical cheeses. Thanks to the excellent road links the towns of Siena, Arezzo and Perugia can be reached in just under an hour.
