Poggio Corsucci is a great starting point to devote yourself to activities even very different from one another, but it is also the place of the sweet doing nothing, that place that, with little things, gives you back a huge quality of life.
You will be able to feel home at the poolside, to give yourself the luxury of a nice book in the shade of an arbour, to go for a walk in the paths surrounding the house, inebriating yourself of the wood’s odours. You will be able to share the joy of eating and drinking a good wine with friends, to be enchanted by the landscape, to taste mushrooms picked up nearby or to be amazed by the deer’s presence around the house. It is the place where you will surprisingly feel needless to ask for more.

Everything here is related to history, art and culture. Poggio Corsucci is placed at the very centre of Tuscany, being 40 Km apart from Florence and Siena and only 20 Km from Arezzo.
