Poggio Piglia - Retreat in Tuscany
I find villas in Tuscany achingly beautiful. And Poggio Piglia is certainly no exception.
This beautiful property is in the hamlet of Macciano in the Tuscan countryside (and I'm sold on that sentence and the pictures alone). It was lovingly restored over seven years, contains nine unique bedrooms and boasts charming features such as original fireplaces, exposed brick detail, wooden beamed ceilings and vistas overlooking the surrounding valleys.
There is also an intimate restaurant on site; from what I understand from the website there are also 900 olive trees on the property and olive oil is in abundance here for guests. I am a bit of a connoisseur of olive oil so that coupled with...EVERYTHING ELSE about this charming property has me rapt with attention.
So while most of us are biding our time until the ravages of cooler winter weather wear off, maybe we can take a little comfort in these pretty images of Tuscany...and dream a little of a villa far away.
