About the villa
The fabulous Il Pozzo is a flawless restoration of a former farmhouse, dating back to the 18th century but now replete with 21st century facilities. With a dedicated team of staff, five-star service includes luxury toiletries, fresh flowers, concierge and breakfast service, and chef service for lunch or dinner, with sumptuous poolside barbecues an option, and many ingredients fresh from the garden. In its own twelve hectares of Tuscan hillside are orchards, olive groves and vegetable beds, tranquil gardens of lawns and flowers, a play house, a 5-a-side football pitch, and a sizeable swimming pool.
Al fresco living is encouraged with hammocks for snoozing in shady spots, and well-furnished dining and lounging areas beside the pool, beneath the trees and on the villa’s terraces. And all gaze out to gorgeous views, over gently rolling hills to picturesque Pienza, just 10km away. Within the villa is a sleek kitchen in stainless steel, an elegant living room with a full window wall onto the garden, a TV/play room with DVD and surround sound system, and nine beautiful bedrooms, each with en suite bath or shower room, TV and WiFi.

The rolling, strangely haunting scenery of the Val d’Orcia is the backdrop to many a Renaissance painting. Its cypress-studded ridges form one of the iconic modern images of ‘classic Tuscany’. The towns are a delight for architecture buffs: the Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano and Pienza; the Romanesque Collegiata in San Quirico d’Orcia, hewn entirely from honey-coloured travertine. Cortona clings to the side of a mountain overlooking the Valdichiana, looking out to Lake Trasimeno and neighbouring Umbria.
