The silence of the Tuscan hills rolling towards the sea is broken by the cicadas' song. On the horizon is the island of Elba. A ship is calmly crossing the strait. A cat arrives, surprised about not being the only one to enjoy this special moment. A caress is exchanged for a moment's complicity. A light, spiced meal with Poggio ai Santi's bread and olive oil completes this course of peace and farniente. Can one feel guilty for staying a few days in Paradise?
You watch two falcons sweep above the shrubs, lit by the first rays of the sun. They are teaching their children about life in Paradise. You listen to their unmistakable call and to the higher-pitched answers of their offspring. Just like you, they are breathing in all the smells and the spices of the Mediterranean. A few wing beats away, rows of umbrella pines are silhouetted along the gentle coast. You prolong this magical moment on the terrace of the Poggio ai Santi restaurant, enjoying the authentic honey, jam, fruit, bread and buns from the generous and rich soil of Tuscany.
Slowly the blue gives way to pink, red and orange. The sun departs between the sky and the sea to bless other lands. The cicadas go quiet. The indecisive wind tosses all the smells of a country evening into the air. Two donkeys chat across a ravine. The music from Poggio ai Santi's bar accompanies these moments of fulfilment: harmony reigns with Mozart or jazz. Small sins of gluttony miraculously join a wine that already felt like seventh heaven.
The stars of Poggio ai Santi are those which fill your nights, the Milky Way as you can still see it with the pure air of the neighbouring sea, far from the city lights: our intention is to meet you and enable you to share a moment of life "a la toscana". Here you will not find butlers and concierges to fill your every whim, but a guest house atmosphere which meets your real wishes. The place is a magical one, nestled in hills of Mediterranean maquis, with the sea as a backdrop. A natural amphitheatre where Segesta or Epidaurus could have been built in classical times. We have preserved it intact for you.
The Podere houses a gastronomic restaurant which presents its finest appointments in every season: open onto three open verandas in summer, in winter it offers cosy afternoons by the fire. From the terraces, admire the coast and the island of Elba and even, on clear days, Corsica on the horizon.
Poggio ai Santi is also a farm, so a large proportion of the products we offer you are produced in-house, like vegetables, fruit, poultry.
Our olive oil has its own reputation and is found in some prestigious restaurants in Europe.
We are an organic farm and all our products are of Tuscan origin. We work with the Italian National Research Centre to replant ancient Tuscan essences, within the framework of a wider biodiversity project.
At Poggio ai Santi, you are at the heart of one of the richest parts of the world, with a density of castles, churches, cathedrals, classical temples, historic towns, landscapes, islands, beaches, local and national natural parks. The most highly reputed vineyards in the world, such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia are located just the other side of the hill. Tuscany is still the land of authentic cuisine with produce from the land and sea that cannot be found elsewhere.
