Near cities of great artistic and cultural value
Borgo Il Poggiaccio, a Medieval Period Residence which lies downstream of the mountainous area of the Sienese countryside, is part of the municipality of Sovicille, whose name dates back to a celebratory description: ‘Soavis Locus Ille‘ (the sweet spot).
The ancient oaks and holm oaks woods, the beautiful wheat and sunflowers fields and the appreciated vineyards of Chianti Colle Senese offer many routes through an area of rare beauty.
From il Poggiaccio you can easily reach cities of great cultural and artistic heritage: Siena is just 22 km away, Florence 74 km and San Gimignano 35 km. Or, again within a few kilometres, you can visit the Abbey of San Galgano or the Monteriggioni castle.
The sea is about 50 km from the village, reaching the Tyrrhenian coast with Punta Ala, Castiglione della Pescaia, the islands of Elba and Giglio. As well, the mount Amiata, popular health resort and ski area, can be reached along just 42 km.
