Tuscany - Villa Boschi Salviati,
where history and
nature meet

The agritourism complex

At the end of the nineteenth century, Villa Boschi Salviati was known as "Poggio Canterino" (House of Singing) on account of the nightingales living around it. The property is situated amongst the beautiful Tuscan hills, surrounded by its own vineyards and woodlands of larch and oak, amounting to a total of 6000 m² of parkland. The visitor can enjoy spectacular views over the sunflower fields of the Val di Chiana, offering glimpses of Monte Amiata in the distance.

To care for the environment, an ecological solution was a natural choice. Indeed, the whole building is self-sufficient, both in terms of electricity, provided by two photovoltaic systems mounted on the wooden roofs, and for its water, which comes from a well. The villa has been lovingly renovated throughout, making use of traditional Tuscan materials: all the floors are covered in locally-produced cotta tiles, while the ceilings are supported by wooden beams. The rooms are furnished with carefully restored antique furniture.

The fitted kitchen is equipped with all modern facilities, while a barbecue is provided for guests to prepare their own "bistecca fiorentina": the typical local beefsteak. The spacious dining-room has a large fireplace at one end, used for cooking in the old days, and the place where the whole household used to gather in the evenings.

The house can sleep up to twelve people, in double and twin-bedded rooms with bath, equipped with hairdryers, air-conditioning and 32" LED televisions, and decorated with delightful frescoes. The beautiful finishes, including the screen-printed mirrors and hand-made curtains help to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere, conducive to a relaxing and comfortable stay.
