What we love
Comfort and elegance define Poggio alle Corti, with numerous activities on offer within the grounds, and some truly special dining options to be found nearby.
For those longing to explore the evocative Tuscan countryside, Poggio alle Corti could not be better-located. Set within 10 hectares of olive groves, gardens and vineyards, this villa enjoys an atmosphere of restful seclusion, coupled with the luxury of close proximity to Florence – Tuscany’s capital city, and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The elegant house itself was originally built in the 13th century, in recent years tastefully restored to its current glory. Enjoy 180 degree views of the exquisite landscape from the large veranda, and watch the warm Tuscan sun melt into the horizon from the master suite’s private terrace.
The villa can provide a wealth of daytime activities, whether you prefer a family tournament on the tennis court, luxuriating by the stone-lined pool, taking a turn about the beautifully-maintained gardens, exploring the surrounding countryside, or a game of Petanque on your own shaded pitch.
In the evenings, many guests prefer to dine al fresco on the terrace, although you can also opt for the large dining room, or the more informal, but equally comfortable, farmhouse kitchen table. Poggio alle Corti is also mere minutes’ walk from a renowned restaurant, which comes highly recommended by the villa’s owners, and also nearby are Badia a Passignano, villages with excellent restaurants to choose from.
After dinner, guests can retire to the drawing room, the library, or get competitive on the full-size snooker table.
