Description of buildings

La Tenuta del Poggiolo comprises the following buildings:


- Period villa with four floors measuring around 1554 sq.m in total, in good condition.

The villa, which is in a dominant location in relation to the other buildings, benefits from a beautiful view over the valley below and the surrounding hills.

On the ground floor there is the kitchen, the dining room, large, impressive living areas which overlooks a large panoramic terrace and two bathrooms.

The first floor comprises the billiard room, a veranda used as a home cinema, two bathrooms and 9 rooms used as a study, sitting room or bedroom, all of which could be used as bedrooms.

The second floor is the attic and is used as a loft, but the average height of the rooms means it could be used mostly for living space, so it would be possible to significantly increase the number of bedrooms. In the basement there are several storerooms and the private chapel;

- caretaker’s lodge, with two floors, measuring 248 sq.m in total and requiring restoration;

- farmhouse with three floors, measuring around 720 sq.m in total, recently restored.

The ground floor is divided into a large open plan area with kitchen, dining area and sitting room, games room with access to a picturesque tower and the gym.

The sleeping area is on the two upper floors, with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms altogether;


- annex with 3 floors, measuring around 636 sq.m in total, partly for use as living space, requires restoration;


- storeroom measuring around 214 sq.m in total, with one floor;


- storeroom measuring around 85 sq.m in total, with one floor;

State and finishing

The villa is in good general condition and still has all the charm of an aristocratic country estate.

The inside has a pleasant, balanced feel overall and features several spaces with antique tile flooring and ceilings with frescoes and decorations.

Thanks to its many large windows, which are original, the rooms are bright and offer a panoramic view of the surrounding greenery.

The utilities and the bathrooms, while all in working order, would benefit from an upgrade.

The attic, due to the good average height of the rooms, could be restored and made into living space, which could significantly increase the number of available bedrooms.

In the basement there is the small private chapel, which is also in good condition.


A little lower down from the villa and not far from the swimming pool, there is a pretty farmhouse, which was recently restored with modern finishings of excellent quality, and which is used by the current owners as their home.


All of the other buildings require restoration.

The ones nearest the houses are in fair structural condition, plus there are four additional houses on the land which are in a more isolated and panoramic location, that could be converted into completely independent residences with their own private land surrounding them, as it would be possible to extend each of them by 100 sq.m.

External areas

The estate comprises 36 hectares of private land which surrounds the various buildings.

There are two main entraces to the estate: the lower one, which goes all the way to the farmhouses below (and the owners’ current residence) and then through the woods right to the villa, and another on the same level as the villa with a long lane lined with cypress trees.

The villa is surrounded by a pretty garden, which underwent a long design process in the 1950s by Porcinai, a famous landscape designer at the time.

In the area around the farmhouses below there is a large lawn, with a pretty swimming pool in a panoramic and secluded location.

The property also includes a fertile olive grove.

Use and potential uses

Tenuta del Poggiolo, thanks to its panoramic and convenient location and its architectural features, is a very versatile property: it would be perfect as an impressive private residence, as tourist accommodation where it would be possible to hold events and meetings, or as an impressive headquarters for a business, perhaps an agricultural one.
