Poggiobuono is a luxuriously restored farmhouse set on a soft hill top, South of Siena, in the Val d’Orcia valley. The views from the garden and swimming pool are just stunning, with the village of Rocca D'Orcia against the skyline as a backdrop to the rolling hills that make the Val d’Orcia so famous. The old farmhouse has just been restored and converted into a very comfortable and sophisticated home. Every comfort has been thought about with a fantastic kitchen, a very comfortable open plan living room with an open fireplace leading into the dining room. The air conditioned bedrooms are just as impressive and comfortable, all with en suite bathrooms. The private infinity edge swimming pool is set across a well kept lawn enjoying the best of the views with two terraces for sun bathing. A modern Loggia provides shade to the designer seating area and a large “sail” offers protection from the sun to the al fresco dining table from which you can see the nearby town Castiglione d’Orcia and the village Rocca D'Orcia that in the evening lights up. Just 5 minutes away if the famous village of Bagno Vignoni with its thermal baths, and in 10 minutes you have San Quirico d’Orcia which is a charming medieval town with some quite sophisticated restaurants to choose from. Then you have within easy reach Pienza, Montalcino as Montepulciano and of course Siena.
