Classic Tuscan villa near Terme dei Medici
Stunning outdoor living spaces and a private indoor wellness area make Villa Poderosa an ideal choice for a holiday any time of year in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Spend a stay relaxing in the gardens by the pool, exploring the photogenic Val d’Orcia region, and sampling local wines, cheeses and more from nearby shops. The property was recently restored with care and consideration, and today this historic home boasts sophisticated decor and nine bedrooms with space for fourteen friends and family members.
The villa is set amid expansive gardens planted with lavender, rosemary, wildflowers and even vegetables. Let the scent of the herbs and Tuscan sun wash over you as you lounge by the pool or under the pergola, and as evening falls, serve aperitifs at one of the al-fresco dining areas as the barbecue heats up. After a day of sightseeing, stretch out in the exercise room, swim against the counter-current system in the indoor pool, treat yourself to a session in the steam room and sauna, or simply share favorite snaps via Wi-Fi.
A recent restoration brought out the authentic character of this luxury vacation rental while giving it a modern update. Cotto floors, beamed ceilings, shuttered windows and stone fireplaces give a warm, traditional look to the two sitting rooms, sunroom and formal dining room. Contemporary details such as mod lounge chairs, wicker loveseats and even a station clock are unexpected yet playful. The fully equipped eat-in kitchen is both stylish and practical, with custom cabinets, a breakfast table and state-of-the-art appliances.
Once the inspiration for countless Renaissance artists and now dotted with charming villages and castles, the Val d’Orcia region is well worth exploring. Sip the famed local wine in Montalcino, see the town where Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet was filmed in Pienza or leave your car at the Chiusi-Chianciano train station and take the train into central Florence. There are plenty of dining choices close to Villa Poderosa, from rustic trattorias to romantic restaurants, and if you need a special treat, the Terme dei Medici spa is only a 3-minute drive away.

Siena is . . . the city of the blessed Virgins and the "Balzana"; black and white; decisive, just as its heraldic symbol; passionate and contemplative; always climbing and descending; clear and at the same time obscure; steep and narrow streets; the red of the Piazza del Campo appearing blinding and suddenly. In the alleys, in the museums and oratories of the Contrada, the spiritual songs of the Palio evoke very ancient rituals and modern allegories, while during the evening the shuffling of soles on the deserted pavement is in contrast with the peacefulness of the green valleys providentially enclosed within the wall, which ancient administrators had erected hundreds of years before it became common practice.
Siena is also the Cathedral and the extraordinary panorama from the Facciatone; the Sala del Pellegrinaio in Santa Maria della Scala, the Libreria Piccolomini and the prestigious Accademia Chigiana; the enormous Medicean fortress that on the inside, at the Enoteca Italiana, harbors the most precious wines of Siena, Tuscany and the peninsula; sweet-smelling Trattorias, sweet spices, the sounds of the artisans and spouting fountains; Fontebrande and the mystery of the Diana, a famous river underneath Siena; the alchemy geometry of the Piazza, suggestively neo-Gothic and cathartic. And these are the reasons why "Siena opens up its heart more than any other place," as the famous inscription reads on the Porta di Camollia.
