Tenuta di Poggiolame is our home set in our private estate of 220 acres (88 hectares). The house, set in the centre of the estate, is reached via a kilometre long drive providing total privacy and exclusivity.
All around the house is a superb landscape, thick with forest and woodland - pine and cypress, olive groves, walnut and fruit trees - rich with lavender and wild flowers.
Green hills and mountains stretch as far as the eye can see. In the distance hamlets, medieval castles and towers peek through early morning mists, when wild boar and deer can be seen foraging.
Sunrise and sunset in this magical landscape are spectacular.
In amongst the forest on our estate are many streams with mini cascades to discover. We have marked several trails out for our guests, which cross these streams and you can discover the nature trails made bywild boar, deer, porcupine and other w ildlife.
The accommodation at Poggiolame retains the cosy and comfortable style of an old traditional Umbrian manor house, but has been enriched by precious objects and items of furniture - a melange of antique and modern.
The house is fully equipped with every amenity to ensure total comfort and convenience.
It has 950 square metres of living space on two floors and, as well as the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and utility areas,it has a large study/reading room, a spacious living room with fireplace, a television room (SKY Italia with English programmes) and a dining room. There is free WiFi for those who require it.
The ground floor of the house opens onto a stone-paved terrace perfumed by a large variety of colourful and exotic plants, with stunning views over the breathtaking landscape. The estate amenities include a 7 x 14 metre swimming pool with shower facilities.
Couples, singles and friends can easily be accommodated with ample space for privacy and contemplation if required.
Individual rooms can be reserved. Not all of the rooms are en-suite. It is possible to reserve an en-suite, or apartment with tea and coffee making facilities.
Tenuta di Poggiolame
As seen on the BBC, our home, Tenuta di Poggiolame, is the venue for our painting, drawing and creative writing courses, which are designed to suit all levels of skill. We are NOT a hotel, it is our private home, and we are just lucky enough to have this wonderful place that we make open to people to come and enjoy learning, be inspired and explore their creative potential. As a guest in our home, this gives a more personal touch to the weeks and usually results in a house party atmosphere. We aim to offer every comfort and have a private chef.
Our home is set in the Umbrian hills, overlooking the Cetona peaks and close to the Tuscany and Lazio borders and nestles in it's own private 220 acre estate. We promise the BEST practising artists offering you the VERY best of their skills!
