Situated in the midst of the picturesque Tuscan Vineyards this countryside villa by the name of Poggio A Lupo offers plenty of space for a family or group of friends. It's also just a 15-20 min drive from Siena!

The space

Going by the name of Poggio al Lupo (Hill of the wolves) and situated 12km south of Siena in the middle of picturesque vineyards this 19th century-villa/country-maisonette comprises 6 large and bright rooms. All rooms are nicely furnished and based on two floors. They can sleep up to 7-8 people.

Even though wolves do not roam the Tuscan countryside anymore the area surrounding Poggio al Lupo is still as untouched, full of vineyards and olive groves as it used to be decades ago.

The living space includes a converted Cantina (former wine cellar) with large living room, a summer kitchen (with dish-washer) and two bathrooms (with washing machine), one extra toilet, courtyard, a garden and surrounding forest.

Poggio A Lupo is to be let from Mid March until November on a weekly basis. The massive stone walls make for a very comfortable climate inside the house without the need for A/C, even in the hottest time of the year.

You can find cool rivers, lakes and hot thermal springs in the vicinity. Renting a car or bringing your own is advised.

12km to Siena.
50km to the sea.
75km to Florence (int. airport).
110km to Pisa (int. airport).

This property has been in our family and well looked after for over 20 years. We feel the interior design, furniture and gardens reflect this.

With the help of guests over the years we put together a guide book about the many activities, Restaurants, sights and shops to buy Tuscan delights (such as Truffles, Finocchiona, Olive Oil, Wines etc) in the area. Nevertheless we will be more than happy to personally assist you in planning your stay at Poggio Al Lupo.


IMPORTANT:
Please be advised that Poggio Al Lupo does not have central heating. With thick Tuscan walls and a cold winter this can lead to uncomfortable temperatures from October - March. There is only one wood-fired stove and 2 gas heaters. Guests are advised to bring warm clothing if travelling in these months.

Guest access

This villa in Tuscany is spacious and beautiful. It's terrace, and the scenery surrounding it is what dreams are made of. The little village just down the hill has a great bottega and osteria. We loved it. The host was also helpful and welcoming. A few things to be aware of: As it is the country, the wifi is unreliable. Also, there are permanent neighbours attached to the house who have dogs and, well, roosters. All were friendly though. Nothing that would stop me from going back. No regrets.

We enjoyed our week at this large and spacious home in the Tuscany area. The setting is lovely with olive groves and a nice courtyard. It is very peaceful. The house is a bit rustic, but it has all the basics you need to enjoy your stay. You need a car to get there and to travel around in the area. We loved visiting Siena which is about 25 minutes away and driving around the countryside. We visited in late May and the weather was perfectly lovely.

We had an absolutely brilliant time staying at this villa. Its very child friendly and spacious yet very homely. The kitchens are very well equipped and the beds really comfy. You would need a car to get to the nearby village - but there is a good grocery shop for all your needs and a lovely pizzeria/bar for meals and drinks. Its a 25 minute drive to siena which is a beautiful city but it was so nice to stay out in the countryside and enjoy the Tuscan Views. Max couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. would really recommend this villa :)

We visited in August. It was hot - about 34˚C. Great house in a nice rural location. You really need a car to get here and get around. I took my bike with me too and there was some lovely cycling to be had right from the house. In the day time we spent most of our time in the garden under one of the olive trees reading. Then lunch on the patio under a huge sun umbrella. Pretty idyllic ! There are some really good wild swimming places nearby (within an hours drive) and we did that a lot. There is a great little grocery shop in Ville de Corsano - just a couple of minutes from the house. Siena is about 25 mins drive away too so really handy if you want a dose of people and culture. There is a second kitchen downstairs but we spent our evenings upstairs in the smaller kitchen. It felt like the natural centre of the house and has a nice view of the garden through the kitchen window. Nice modern bathroom downstairs. There is wifi but thankfully no tv! We were a family of 5 (3 children aged 12, 9 and 9) and we all had a great time. Super relaxing!
