Alba Chiara Suite
This 40sq m suite is accessed directly from the garden, via a loggia (gallery). The suite has views of the vineyards and hilltop town of Montepulciano. The double bed is dressed with ruby fabrics, and heavy wooden shutters hang on the wall behind. The ensuite bathroom has a rain shower.
This 48sq m first-floor suite is set in the original kitchen, with the pantry wall still intact. The balcony has views of the church of San Biagio and the mediaeval village of Montefollonico. The bed is covered in dark blue fabric; an additional shot of colour comes via a hot pink dress, hanging to one side of the bed. A stone arch frames the open-plan sitting area.
This is the smallest suite, at 35sq m, but has plenty of character. Three big windows mean the suite benefits from plenty of natural light. The bed is candy pink, with shutters hanging on the wall behind, and the beamed ceiling adds further rustic charm. From this suite, guests can admire the deer grazing.
Gather the troops for a fairytale farm retreat in Tuscany – Follonico is now available for exclusive use for groups of up to 12. Owners Suzanne, Fabio and their family will be on-site to provide everything you need (breakfast, daily cleaning and cooking classes on request), but otherwise you’ll have the run of this exquisitely restored 200-year old farmhouse, the gorgeous gardens and sunlounger-dotted swimming pool.
