The agriturismo

The agriturismo is located in the middle of the countryside, near an ancient castle, 11 km from Pienza. Until the end of the 1970s, the farm was the centre of a community of around 300 people, with a parish church and a school.

Views of Cosona have been celebrated by cinema, expecially in the Oscar winning movie “The English Patient” by Anthony Minghella.

The accommodation

The agriturismo offers 7 independent apartments: La Quinta, La Scuola, Casa Leoncini, Casa Bruna, Guidoccio, La Cappella and Il Poggiolo. All apartments have a kitchen and green outdoor spaces.

 

From the beginning of June until the end of September, there is a communal outdoor swimming pool with views of Pienza, the Orcia Valley and Mount Amiata.

 

The agriturismo is part of the farm of the same name, which produces cereals and PGI extra virgin olive oil. Milk from the sheep is gathered to produce Pecorino di Pienza cheese.

Activities and surrounding

Be sure to take a trip to Pienza, Italy’s first Renaissance city.

Siena and Arezzo are around an hour away by car.

The surrounding area is home to many beautiful hamlets (Castelmuzio, Petroio, Montisi, Trequanda), and parts of the Via Francigena can be accessed and explored on foot around Buonconvento, San Quirico d'Orcia and Bagno Vignoni.

The gardens of Villa La Foce and the Parco della Ragnaia in San Giovanni d’Asso are certainly worth a visit.

Mount Amiata (for winter skiing and summer excursions) is only half an hour away by car.

A long stroll will take you to the frescoed abbey of Sant’Anna in Camprena. A trip to the abbeys of Sant'Antimo (Montalcino) and Monteoliveto Maggiore (Asciano) is also recommended.

The DOCG wines Brunello and Nobile can be sampled in the cellars of Montalcino and Montepulciano.

The spa centres of Bagno Vignoni, Rapolano and Chianciano Terme are all easily accessible.

Cosona is ideal for excursions on foot, by mountain bike or by moped.

    01/03/2018

    We stayed 3 nights in New Year's Eve, in the largest house "il Poggiolo", which say the wonderful house, very clean and warm, a lounge with a fabulous fireplace where we spent beautiful evenings with our friends. Victory is a very sweet woman, available and always present. We will definitely come back to Cosona.

    Thanks Elisa, it is nice to read the enthusiasm of our guests and know that in Cosona they felt pampered and relaxed! Il Poggiolo with its large living room, the living room and the six rooms for a total of 11 beds, is an apartment that lends itself particularly to accommodate groups of friends, or more families. You have been ideal guests and we really hope you can come back soon! Thanks again from Vittoria and Cosona's family

    Thank you so much, Valentina! We are very pleased to know that you have been well in Cosona, despite the cold and the weather conditions are not optimal ... Cosona is a place that deserves even out of season, to be able to visit the beautiful villages with calm, which can be reached in just a quarter by car hour, or a little more. it's nice to come back to the apartments, that we want to be seen as a house by our guests, in front of the fireplace (present in all the apartments, except La Scuola), enjoy a good glass of wine, cook in the old houses of the peasant families , and finally enjoy a nice relaxing sleep, without the noise of the city. Come back soon to see us, we are waiting for you! Thanks again, Vittoria and Cosona's family

    "Paradise in Val d'Orcia"

    10/02/2017

    We spent a few days with our young children in Cosona. Everything was perfect, we had a generous apartment and for breakfast on the first day was taken care of. The castle and its huge garden are a beautiful and peaceful place. The garden invites you to a lot of fun. Furthermore, there is a large play room with many play facilities. The beautiful pool provides cooling on hot days and offers a breathtaking view over the beautiful landscape. Vittoria is so nice and helpful, has great tips for the area. We enjoyed our stay and will come again.

    Dear Nadine, thanks for your kind words! We are glad that you and your adorable children were able to spend some pleasant and relaxing days here in Cosona! Casa Leoncini, the apartment that accommodated you, is ideal for a couple with 2 kids! We like the idea that children can play in our garden as well as in the recreation room we set up inside the ancient green house. May you decide to come back and visit us, even in a different season, you'll be welcome! Thanks again and see you soon, Vittoria and the Cosona family
