Podere Sant'Egidio

Podere Sant’Egidio has a lot of facets, just as the surface of cut stone. It is an elegant holiday resort for families and friends. It is a stylish setting for ceremonies and events. It is a corner of paradise in the green heart of Tuscany. It is your home.

Podere Sant’Egidio was designed in order to make you feel at home all year round.
A cosy familiar place endowed with all the comforts of high level accommodation, immersed in a unique framework.

The resort

Protected by the broad Pratomagno range, the estate is near the centre of Castel Focognano and overlooks the Casentino Valley, as far as the Alpe di Catenaia. The ancient building – made up of three farmsteads and a barn – has been totally refurbished by specialised workers, in full compliance with the best Tuscan tradition. Stone, cotto bricks, wood and wrought iron are materials still telling an ancient story, naturally intertwined with the surrounding landscape. The heart of Podere Sant’Egidio is the master building, a villa comprising six independent apartments, which are endowed with all comforts and enriched by shared spaces: a large kitchen with a huge stone fireplace and a spacious living room opening onto the garden.

Event space

The real crown jewel of Podere Sant’Egidio is the large Event Space, which is a perfect venue for ceremonies, special occasions and work meetings all year round. With its wide revolving glass doors – opening onto the outdoor pool and solarium terrace – the spacious open space lets you enjoy the benefits of a sheltered private space in perfect continuity with the charming outer framework, which is even more captivating at sunset, when the modern soft lights make it the perfect venue for a cocktail by the pool.

Podere Sant’Egidio is surrounded by a huge garden arranged on two natural terraces, in the shade of leafy olive trees immersed in the scent of lavender and rosemary flowerbeds. Enjoy sipping your morning coffee while reading your favourite book under the ancient oak tree overlooking the facade of the villa . Just few steps, bare feet, further to the spacious gazebo with its delicate climbing jasmine walls. Put on your apron and light the fire: the barbecue is ready to fill the air with the delicious flavours of Tuscan cuisine.
