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.

    "Beautiful restful stay at Cosona"

    This is a gem of a location ? sunsets, rolling hills, watching sheep dogs protect the flock, evening fires in the fireplace. And it was lovely to hear Vittoria's family story going back 500 years. And short drives away from many Tuscan hillside villages. Thank you!

    We have just returned from a week in Cosona, in La Quinta. We have only one idea in mind: come back next year, but this time for 2 weeks. The area is beautiful, between Crete Senesi and Val d'Orcia: breathtaking landscapes, with the impression of being in a giant postcard, out of time. The ideal to decompress. The accommodation is very nice, big and very clean, with everything you need. The private garden and the small terrace are well appreciated. Perfect for a glass of wine (from the region) facing Pienza. As for the pool, it is idyllic, with a splendid view. Thanks to Vittoria for her very friendly welcome and her comments on the history of the castle and the family. In summary: a dream vacation! Just think of protecting yourself from mosquitoes. But when we know it, it's not a problem anymore.

    Dear François, we thank you very much for the words you used to describe our agriturismo and our welcome. We are pleased that you have enjoyed your stay in the La Quinta apartment which, because of its small private garden, is also ideal for four-legged friends. We are sorry for the mosquitoes: hope that during your next stay they will be less annoying ?! We are waiting for you next year. Thanks again. Sincerely, Vittoria and Cosona's family.
