A Large Pool

We have an unusually large saltwater pool on the property secluded from the house in a sheltered, scenic spot. Shade at poolside and over the water is provided by Shade Sails that filter the U.V. light and are wind-proof, as it gets breezy up here at Poggio Al Vento as this hill is called, the meaning is Place In The Wind. Umbrellas don’t last! The walled garden is large, offering soft lawns, gentle breezes and beautiful views for guests.  With only 5 rooms there’s never a shortage of space, tables, chairs – or a private place to be.  Find lounge chairs above the olive grove and lunch tables under the Acacia trees in a breezy shaded spot. For those who like their breakfast in the garden, tables on the South lawn looking out to the Trequanda hills. Close to the house we have dining ‘seating’ for 20. Down by the pool sunbeds, deck chairs & hammock, pool ‘seating’ for 15 people. The point is that we only have about 8-12 people here at any one time.

From which you can enjoy Tuscany in all its glory

Golden Tuscan afternoons can be so perfect

All Summer long guests return home in time for sunset, when the best place to be is in the garden. For new arrivals to the house golden light of late afternoon – the final hour before the sun is gone – is unmissable.  Try to get here in time to enjoy it.
