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.

    "Casa dolce casa / home sweet home! "

    06/11/2018

    We spent 9 glorious days in beautiful Cosona. Serene, tranquil, home away from home for us. The cottages were cosy, clean, well furnished and equipped. Vittoria is the most gracious and caring host, always responsive, helped us so much with local knowledge of the area. She also organised a fantastic truffle hunting and cooking experience for us. We will certainly return. Grazie Mille Vittoria, Niccolo and family xo

    "Wonderful stay"

    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
