The Country House Poggio Sant'Angelo, located nearby the Farneta, one of the most beautiful monasteries of Tuscany, offers guests the unique opportunity to experience the atmosphere and charm of an old villa Leopoldina, immersed in the Tuscan countryside.
Poggio San'Angelo located close to Cortona, a city rich in history and art,
and the most important means of communication that allow you to quickly reach major cultural and tourist centers in central Italy (Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Florence, but Perugia, Assisi and Rome).
The Country House is situated in the border between Siena and the Val di Chiana Arezzo, this gives the structure a unique feature, because it will melt strokes, lines and materials of both their cultures, Arezzo and Siena that.
Poggio S. Angel is a building with two floors plus attic
attic in years past was probably used as storage room, and then acted as buffer for isolation of high floor from cold and damp, or as a drier meat, or, as often happened, as for the production of pigeon guano, which in times not far was considered an important fertilizer use in agriculture.
In addition to the attic, covers the important main floor (first floor), where the family lived and have maintained the features of a time, as evidenced by the magnificent Tuscan arch that dominates the Great Hall of the fireplace and it is important to track to understand how the spaces in those days were distributed within the home.
And finally there is the ground floor which was probably used as a stable and barn, and where are still visible traces of yore.
The building is nineteenth-century and was used by the owners as a hunting lodge because it was an 'architecture that complements the main villa is a few hundred meters, then has undergone many changes, as reflected in various statements by observing the texture of different materials .
The building is located along the major roads, the highway E.35 Perugia-Siena, not far from the "Val di Chiana 'of the A1, but this is not immersed in the green and its place in the top to a small hill, making it one of the nicest resorts in the area, the surrounding vegetation is typical Tuscan with pines, cypresses bordering the property, box fine entrance, cedar and oak trees, magnolias, and everything is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and wheat fields and sunflowers.
Regarding the work performed in the structure, the dominant principle that guided the hand of the designers was "Tradition and Innovation";
we tried as much as possible to maintain its main features, its forms, its colors and its materials, wooden floors and brick arches, steel and brick floors, everything has been done in respect of ' existing architecture and Tuscan traditions, but at the same time trying to adapt to current regulations by adopting the best standards of ecological design and sustainable architecture.
The Bed and Breakfast consists of a cellar in the basement, obtained from the transformation of the original deposit to water, that have been drained, isolated and rendered safe.
The ground floor living area comprises a large porch, which was built later and a beautiful room that was designed to flow freely light and space;
large round arches and a fireplace dominates the living room: the light flowing, floating space ... everything has been conceived as a diaphanous structure, where every angle you can dream it with great arches Tuscany, with beautiful floors wood and brick and warmth evoked by the colors chosen for the flooring, to curtains, to the plaster, and you can enjoy with all five senses.
The vertical connection between floors of the building is governed both by a wooden staircase that goes from ground floor to the attic, is a traditional stone staircase leading to a porch where he faces the Great Hall of the Camino.
Even for the rooms on the first floor, with regard to the materials used, is valid argument made for the ground floor, with new plaster soft colors and traditional, sometimes executed tone on tone, that rest and relax;
even here the materials, furnishings, draperies, are sophisticated and tastefully chosen so as to merge tradition and innovation, and energy relaxation in a mix that invites guests to fully live every moment, every single small corner of the room.
Particular stress, for both the ground floor for all other plans of the structure, is the type of heating, radiant floor, which not only ensure a better and more uniform heating, definitely gives a feeling of greater comfort and warmth to those who stay in the rooms.
Further detail that makes the rooms is that most of them to view the beautiful slopes of the roof in wood and brick.
Always plan for the first noteworthy is the Great Hall of Fire, where the great original Tuscan arch, the massive fireplace, the wooden roof strata, the soft colors of the plaster, the precious hangings and furnishings dominate space and make everything unique unrepeatable.
Poggio Sant'Angelo Nell'origaria structure were created six rooms, including five doubles and a multiple to stay for four people, all with separate toilet with suction system for non-time windows.
Particular has been the design of bathrooms, typically in accommodation, you tend to get such systems in small crevices, relegating them to complement the architecture of living, whereas in the Country House of bathroom design was of primary importance trying to make them an integral part of each room, making it the guest can fully enjoy his time in the room.
The bathrooms are large, someone is the size of the chamber, with underfloor heating that makes contact with the body-heat the raw material but which is cooked, an exchange of bioenergy, ideal to relax and unwind.
Leaving the hotel and entering into the park, particularly to point out is the pool, its design and its plant, as regards the design, the pool is designed so as to ensure access to persons with disabilities, also is placed into an "amphitheater" purpose-built natural and consists of a circular ring of beautiful pines, that especially during summer evenings provide an optical cone natural and allow you to enjoy relaxing in a beautiful view on ' infinity.
From the perspective of the plant is not an ordinary swimming pool "chlorine", but a "pool halls."
The pools with saline for maintaining water were considered an exception, but now are widely accepted and admired, especially in Northern Europe, U.S. and Australia.
All persons particularly bothered by the presence of chlorine in the pool do not exhibit the same discomfort never kept in a pool with salt sterilizer.
For such pools usually use the sea salt, possibly enriched with a commensurate amount of Dead Sea salts to obtain the ultimate in health benefits, as well as a water quality always impeccable.
Salt is essential for life and the marine environment is the best form, it contains many minerals like magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, chloride, sulfate, phosphate and many other minerals, this mix of primary elements, is very good for health, not raises blood pressure and acts as a natural buffer acidity.
