A magnificent property which is the result of careful restoration that has transformed an old, late 19th century farm estate into an exclusive place of relaxation and well-being. The charm of the classic country farmhouse has remained unchanged and can be seen in the original terracotta tiles that pave the external courtyards and the internal floors, and in the yellow ocher of the exterior walls alternating with the warm mixed tones of the refined rooms with their carefully-chosen furnishings. The living areas consisting of two large rooms, one equipped to serve as a meeting/conference room, the professional kitchen and the bedrooms organized in separate suites with private bathrooms to ensure privacy for large groups, all have air conditioning and wi-fi connection which extends out to the beautiful garden. Situated in a secluded hilly location between the regions of Umbria and Tuscany, close to the attractive little towns of Chiusi, the heart of Etruscan civilization, and Castiglione del Lago, a beautiful borgo on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, Poderina dei Poggi is surrounded by a splendid nature: from the well cared-for garden, a veritable terrace overlooking a green sea of vines, olive trees and cultivated fields, and from the swimming pool, it offers a splendid view over the natural landscape that stretches out in front and which includes, to the north-east, the hills of the Val di Chiana in the area south of Siena with its corollary of stupendous medieval villages and, to the south, the contours of the neighbouring Umbrian towns of Panicale, Paciano and Città della Pieve, of Cetona up to rugged Mount Amiata. A truly formidable setting where you will bask in the atmosphere that surrounds this property set in a perfect central position just a few minutes from the main road junctions. Just 7 kilometres away is Chiusi, with its shops, motorway exit and train station, but close by are other splendid locations, starting from the famous towns of Montepulciano, Cortona, Montalcino, Chianciano Terme and Pienza up to the Val d’Orcia and to the important art cities of Perugia, Siena, Arezzo and Orvieto.
