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!
