My name is Podere Gonzaga In the heart of Val d'Orcia Where emotions come alive. Prenota ora Book your stay

Get ready for a dream journey immersed in culture and nature, for an authentic Tuscan life experience.

I welcome travelers who love above all, peace and beauty

My name is Podere Gonzaga and I am a stone’s throw away from Pienza, built to be the ideal town of the Renaissance, in one of the most iconic places in Tuscany. I am a typical stone farmhouse immersed in the unique natural landscape of  Val d’Orcia. I have been completely restored respecting the typical local rural tradition and adding  those modern details that will surely contribute to make a comfortable stay. In addition to hosting you, if you wish, I will be able to give useful advice for your stay in order to discover the riches of the Tuscan territory and to make sure that the time spent here is an experience of harmony and hospitality.

What I have to offer

Echoes of comforting traditions and modern ideas in every room

Thanks to my recent renovation my historical features have been enhanced (exposed wooden beams, terracotta floors, Tuscan parquet and travertine, but enriched with comfortable details (soundproofing, air conditioning, mosquito nets, large bathrooms).


Fast  internet connection with wi-fi everywhere, was also a must.

Bookcase corner

On the first floor, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of Mount Amiata from my typical loggia , I have also set up a living room with library where you can find magazines, tours and local activities info,novels etc.

Lush Garden solarium

I am surrounded by a lush garden with deckchairs, tables and chairs from which you can enjoy picturesque sunsets while sipping a glass of your favorite wine.

Gourmet breakfast

There is an Italian common saying that states that " mornings have gold in their mouth", so I thought of offering my guests a gourmet breakfast rich in natural products of my territory every morning. Since Michele, my new owner, is a musician, I suggested he prepared for our guests a selection of music that discreetly will accompany their breakfast.

Cultural & private events

The large stable, that when I was first built was the shelter for my farm animals, has now become a cozy lounge with a lovely bar, opened on weekends for wine and local product tastings and cozy aperitifs with the capacity to host private & cultural events like jazz & classical music concerts.

Private parking for cars and bikes

For those arriving by car or motorbike I have arranged a secured private parking, while for the more adventurous arriving by bike I have a small shed  inside the garden.

Comfort without compromise

As I said, despite having benefited from a restoration respectful of the Tuscan rural tradition, I have not neglected those details that will contribute to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
