About Podere Il Sogno

Pope Pius II once commissioned a model Renaissance town to be built in his honour. Today, the grand piazza and duomo in Pienza still elegantly stand, but the town’s reputation is now is based on glorious Pecorino, not papal glory. Pienza’s gastronomic and historic splendour can be enjoyed from the stunning gardens of a model Tuscan villa, Podere Il Sogno. This beautiful farmhouse has been lovingly restored using only original materials.

From its gardens you can take in all the unspoilt delights of Val d’Orcia: rolling hills patchworked by wheat fields and olive groves, majestic cypress trees and traditional villages. The local communities’ lights sparkle at night like stars, but their lively markets and gourmet restaurants sparkle even brighter by day.

This Tuscan villa is certainly enhanced by, but not limited to, its location. Six spacious en suite bedrooms grace its interior, decorated with typical Italian tiling. Air-conditioning guarantees comfort in the hot summer months, and a private swimming pool provides the wonderful focus for its expansive grounds.

Podere Il Sogno’s original features have been retained, but all manner of modern comforts have been added. Facilities for active families include a table tennis table, toys for children, a gym, vegetable garden and three mountain bikes for exploring the Tuscan countryside and its picturesque villages.

This retreat from everyday life is also a springboard for exploring the delights of Tuscany. And there really is nothing for it but to dive right in.
