A few years ago, we decided to restructure a classic old "casa colonica" or rustic house on Il Poggione's property. We are really proud of this project and how it allows our guests to experience what it's like to live in the Montalcino countryside. The Italian word "agriturismo" means "farm tourism". Over the last two decades, it has become very popular in Italy visiting and staying at farmhouses, eating and drinking local products. When you visit the Poggione "agriturismo", you experience really what it is like to live in Tuscany. Enjoy.
In the heart of the Orcia River Valley, just a few kilometers from Montalcino, you can find places that seem to be stopped in time. Small villages, surrounded by medieval walls, hills planted to vine and to olive trees, Romanic churches of unmatched beauty.
Here in Sant'Angelo in Colle, in the heart of the Poggione estate, you will find the Poggione Farmhouse (pictured above), a classic "casa colonica" or "country house" that we have completely remodeled. The Poggione Farmhouse ("agriturismo" in Italian) offers guests seven individual apartments, each with every modern amenity.
Here, guests experience the pleasures of the Montalcino countryside during strolls through the vineyards, tasting a glass of Brunello di Montalcino in the shade of an olive tree, or relaxing by the pool and admiring one of the most beautiful views in all of Tuscany.
Upon request (depending on availability), it is possible to organize a number of activities, including a tour of the Poggione winery, wine tastings, country hiking, visits to Montalcino, Siena, and many other medieval hilltop villages.
Come see what the Poggione Farmhouse as to offer: a magical place surrounded by vineyards, where you can forget the stress of everyday life and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Tuscan countryside.
