About Poggio Valdera

The tranquillity of Poggio Valdera, a sympathetically converted farmhouse villa in Tuscany, offers an ideal country retreat. It’s perfectly located to enjoy Andrea Boccelli's summer concert at the Teatro del Silenzio. Or, indeed, to appreciate the welcome quiet that fills this open-air amphitheatre for the rest of the year.

The beautiful grounds of Poggio Valdera ensure your privacy and provide an escape from the constant demands of a busy lifestyle. Here the only thing that requires your attention is the stunning views of the rolling Tuscan hills.

Inside this exquisite villa in Tuscany old meets new. There’s a seamless blend of rustic brick and stone structures alongside sleek, modern comforts. The spacious house has an underfloor cooling system throughout, and its seven en suite bedrooms command delightful views. The modern steel kitchen leads directly into the garden: although there’s a large formal dining area, the emphasis here is on al fresco meals.

In the garden two dining areas rest among the manicured lawns. The loggia’s views over vineyards and olive groves offer the ideal side dish for your main courses. By the pool there’s a pergola that shades another dining area. Sun loungers and deck chairs also fringe the pool, along with a handy bathroom and shower.

With everything perfectly to hand, the only difficulty you’ll face is deciding whether to explore Tuscany at close quarters on day-trips, or simply admire it from afar from your tranquil retreat.
