The Cignella Estate, a stunning private resort located in the rolling hills of the Valdichiana, was originally built and used as a pig rearing farm over 200 years ago.
As agricultural needs changed, the farm fell into disrepair and the current owners, seeing its potential, wanted to share its wonderful location with the world and so they began working to convert the old farm into luxury accommodation for those looking to explore the hill top towns of Tuscany. A car is recommended when joining us at Cignella and all guests are offered private, designated parking.
The Cignella Estate you see today has been lovingly renovated in the same footprint as the old farm, with the original farmhouse still standing. The roofs, rafters and beams have been skilfully restored using local materials and traditional techniques so their appearance is the same as centuries ago.
With a genuine interest in the style of Cignella and ensuring Tuscan culture and heritage was conveyed throughout the properties, everything you see today including the furniture, paintings and soft furnishings, have been personally sourced by the owners and their family, from outlets and boutiques in the surrounding countryside.
Our collection of accommodation at Cignella includes 13 stunning, spacious properties offering our guests a home away from home during their Italian getaway; from B&B style accommodation to private villas for self-catering holidays, our properties can cater to all. All properties at Cignella are eco-centric and equipped with geothermic heating and cooling systems.
Each property is equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, oven, fridge freezer, washing machine, satellite TV, DVD player, coffee machine, iron with ironing board and kettle. Each property boasts its own private terrace with furniture, perfect for long lunches and evening drinks.
If you have any additional needs, please let us know and we will do everything possible to facilitate. We recommend booking early as unfortunately not all requests can be met, especially in peak season.
To cater for families with young children, cots with bedding, high chairs, plastic bowls and plates are available upon request. We also offer a babysitting service, using accredited carers, which our resort manager, Luca, can arrange for you. This service costs €10 per hour, per child and is payable locally.
