History

Here you can breathe a mystic atmosphere. This is the place where the Etruscans once lived. Some Etruscan remains are found by archaeologists at Poggio alla Sala. These objects are now exhibited in a museum.

The villa and domain belonged to the noble Bonci Casuccini family. For his wines and olive oils he received wide recognition and several awards.

Since 1997 Poggio alla Sala has been owned by the Gattavecchi family. The 19th century villa hosts a resort, wellbeing centre and restaurant.
