The five Villas are in a radial design around a central garden, so that the back terrace of each Villa is not visible to the guests of the other Villas ensuring complete privacy. Each Villa contains four double bedroom and four bathroom (three of them are en suite). The lounge of one Villa can be equiped to host reunions or business meeting for up to 20 people.
On the main wall of the courtyard you will see a patio door which will enable you to step into a spacious living-room. You will find couches, armchairs, and a satellite-dish TV. This living-room also communicates to the three bedrooms, all with a bathroom inside. Two bedrooms feature double beds while the other has twin beds. Two bathrooms are equipped with shower and the other with a bathtub and shower taps. All the bedrooms have windows overlooking the green outside. From the living-room a spiral staircase will lead you to a gracious mezzanine with a window looking out on the hills. On the mezzanine you will find a double divan bed.
The fourth double bedroom is to the side of the courtyard, and it has a large patio door overlooking the shared garden. Next to this bedroom there is a spacious bathroom with shower where there is also a washing machine.
From the living-room you can also step into a spacious dining-room furnished with a table and chairs. This room communicates with the kitchen. From the kitchen you can reach a gracious room enclosed as a veranda by large arched windows. Here you will find a table, chairs, and small wicker armchairs. Before your eyes is the beautiful shared garden. The private garden can be reached from the living-room. The garden lies at the back of the villa and it overlooks the valley. You will be able to relax outdoors and enjoy all your privacy. In front of the living-room you will find a patio furnished with a table and chairs.
The villa is furnished with care in a pleasant, elegant, and cozy way. The floor is in Tuscan terracotta and the ceiling features wood-joist support and terracotta roof tiles.
The kitchen is equipped with a four-burner stove, a fridge with freezer, a dishwasher, an oven, and a microwave oven.
Poggio Turchino is located on a flat top of a hill (200 meters – about 656 feet above sea level) on whose slopes olive groves and oak trees grow. It is a small and enchanting hamlet consisting of five similar villas arranged as petals of a flower around a large round-shaped lawn.In the middle of such lawn, there is a little round temple in marble: it is therein to remind us that this hill was once consecrated to Priapus, god of fertility and virility, in Ancient Rome.
Even the architecture of each villa seeks inspiration from Roman houses: the houses are one-storey high with their rooms distributed around a central courtyard. Every villa has its private fenced-in 2000-square-meter (about 21,528 square feet) garden. Close to the villas is the swimming-pool, surrounded by a sun-drenched area.From every angle of the gardens you will have a pleasant view of vast scenery formed by a succession of green and low hills which fade away from our sight far in horizon. The air is clean and perfume-filled, the overall architectural body of houses and gardens together is elegant and harmonious, and the whole place inspires peacefulness, beauty, and serenity: you will feel happy to spend your vacation here!...Read more

The house excelled our expectations. Very nice. We stayed there with 10 persons in the age of 21 -94 year. We were in Italy because we were attending the marriage of our daughter. This place made it possible to be together on a very nice way. The suroundings are beautifull views.
The little park and swimming pool are nice too. It is a very quiet place.
The owner was very kind. He helped us with finding the place in the middle night.
