This beautiful 500 year old farmhouse was restored and divided into three properties in 2004 and is situated on a working farm and vineyard just outside Torrita di Siena in Tuscany, 7km from the beautiful town of Montepulciano.
The house has been carefully restored with original arches and beams and typical Tuscan tiled flooring throughout. The main entrance leads through the utility room and downstairs bathroom to the large open plan kitchen with dining table for 8 guests. The lounge has two sofas, one of which is a comfortable sofa-bed. There is a fireplace in the sitting room for the winter but central heating throughout.
Upstairs there are two large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has beautiful views of the gardens, pool and the rolling Tuscan hills towards Montepulciano. The front bedroom has a large loggia for breakfast in the sun.
Outside there is a large patio and private garden leading down to the lovely swimming pool and surrounding terrace.
Shops and restaurants: The nearest supermarket can be found in nearby Torrita di Siena and Sinalunga. These area has very many good restaurants that cater for all types of food and budgets. There is a Michelin star restaurant in Montefelonico as well as a Tuscan cookery school but our favourite is the local Jolly Cafe in Torrita! There is plenty of wine tasting to be done in this area and endless historical sites to visit.
Sarah studied in Florence for a year and so fulfilled a dream in 2005 when we were able to not just buy but be involved in the renovation of this beautiful farm house. With young children we are limited to brief visits in school holidays, so we hope you enjoy your stay!
Sarah E Arnold purchased this farmhouse in 2005
The opportunity to renovate and so make it our own was more than we thought possible. Of course that came with usual builder problems but we think we did ok in the end! Now we have a lovely little place with stunning views of working vineyards in Tuscany, great neighbours and friends.
Ours is the middle of three small houses. On one side our neighbours spend some months of the year here coming over from Canada. They know the area completely and so are very friendly and extremely knowledgable! Our other neighbours are doctors from Leeds who are there less but just as welcoming when they visit.
For the kids - gettting eggs freshly laid from the farmhouse or for us, tasting Nobile from Il Greppo at the end of the drive!
A sensitively restored farmhouse with plenty of room including 2 delightful bedrooms one of which has a fabulous balcony. The other overlooks the substantial & picturesque pool and spectacular views of rural Tuscany.
The water pressure is great so proper showers are available after a strenuous session of drinking local wine on the terrace or even running thhrough the locality past farms & vineyards (if you are sad enough to maintain your training ritual whilst on what should be a hedonistic holiday).
Many gorgeous local trips to , eg. Montepulciano or Montalcino make you want to star in a Carlo Ponto movie (circa 1953).
Do not forget the insect repellant as the working farm in which you are situated can sometimes flying insects at the rear of the property (as opposed to the lounge lizards from the nearby bars and cafes).
Your own transport is essential to take full advantage of the brilliantly situated property.

We wanted to stay in the Tuscan country side and this property was perfect - very peaceful with lovely views. The accommodation was good and very clean. The property is not within walking distance of a bar or restaurant but is only a short drive away from Montipulciano which is a beautiful town with lots of restaurants and bars. We visited Florence and Siena but we ensured that we had lazy days chilling out at the farmhouse making the most of the views and the relaxing ambience - reading books and sipping wine by the pool - perfect
We had a great stay at this beautifully and well restored farmhouse near Montepulciano and Montalcino.
- Location was great close to many interesting villages and medium sized Toscan must-do's.
- Facilities were great, with 3 bathrooms, 2-3 separate areas for sleeping and a great pool. Everything kept clean and amenities well-functioning.
- Communication and coordination with owners was swift, effective and friendly.
Further we were spoiled to have the whole facility and pool to ourselves, which just made the stay even better.
We would recommend this place to anyone, both couples and families.
After a miserable, dark, wet winter we made an impulse decision to visit Italy for Easter. A quick Internet search and I found Poggio Sarragio, it seemed to fit the bill. We were so lucky. What a lovely, lovely house and fab location. It had everything we needed except the Internet. A double plus! We had a truly relaxing break. Tuscany in spring is beautiful. Wild flowers, sunshine and warmth. Great for walking and cycling - and spotting film locations. We got The English Patient, Gladiator and New Moon. The house is so well situated. Remote enough to get peace and quiet but close enough to so many lovely places. Everyday we had a relaxing morning at the house then drove out to one of the many lovely villiages in the area -Montepulciano, Montefollonico, Monteciello, Cortona, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni and Siena - lots to see, eat, drink and buy. Sarah was so helpful ensuring our stay went well. she made sure we had supplies after we arrived late on a holiday weekend and booked us in to a great restaurant - La Botte Piena in Montefollonico. We will definitely be booking again, as will be a number of our friends.
We stayed in this house for a week with 6 people including 3 children. The house is a good size for this number of people and we comfortably stayed there. Such good place to visit lots of little villages and we drove to lots of them everyday, enjoyed sightseeing, restaurants and small shopping. Good thing about staying the house is we can cook when we want to, also there is a table outside of the house, and we ate there everyday. We had such great view and so lucky having a swimming pool there too. The house is clean and has everything you need, and we can just go food shopping to the supermarket near. The house is very easy to find although it seems like middle of nowhere, but GPS will take you there so it is very easy.
We would like to go back there again if we can find enough time again. It was such a good holiday.
The property offered all the facilities we needed for 4 people. It was sensitively restored, with many original features retained but luxurious fittings added, such as the large bathrooms. We particularly loved starting each day by having coffee on the sunny balcony. It was very clean and communication with the owner was excellent. The swimming pool was also very clean and safe for children, situated below a very pretty garden with idyllic views.
We loved the location, which was great for visiting Florence, Sienna and the Chianti countryside, but also offered so many other places to explore; we really needed another week. We especially loved Cortona, Pienza and the wine festival in Raddi-in Chianti. The local area was very pretty and the local farmers and neighbours friendly and helpful. Each morning, fresh bread was sold at the door and the local supermarket provided for all our needs.
