The Cignella Resort was born from the transformation of an old pig rearing farm, set between the Val d'Orcia and the Val di Chiana, two of the most beautiful and famous valleys in the Province of Siena, with more than 200 years of history.
Left abandoned when that business became unprofitable, the present owners were struck by the unique position and picture postcard views and set about creating a modern resort where a traditional Tuscan stay blends with the more modern ideals of today’s traveller. Without neglecting any detail, and with an eye to the conservation of all the typical architectural elements, the transformation of the estate began, using the original materials, such as roof beams and century old farmhouse stones, with traditional techniques to preserve their appearance of two centuries ago.
Today the Cignella Resort is the perfect starting point for those who want to experience the heart of Tuscany. Each accommodation overlooks a large garden that almost acts as a square whilst at the same time everyone has their own terrace on which to spend moments of tranquility with loved ones. Here you can experience local life and discover the Province of Siena with its villages and famous hills.
The Resort offers its guests fourteen unique accommodations, which truly offer the essence of modern Tuscany. All are restored in Tuscan style and equipped with latest generation appliances. Our sustainability goals are met by the use of geothermal heating and cooling throughout. We aim to ensure that our guests will have everything they need to feel at home and also experience local culture and traditions.
There is also an outdoor swimming pool, open during the Summer season, a poolside solarium with sunbeds and a Wine bar stocked with some great examples of local wines from Montepulciano, Montalcino and other lesser known areas of the Val d'Orcia, and where there is the option of a delicious breakfast to start your day. And we encourage our guests to make full use of our Reception to help you organise your favourite trips and events during your holidays with us.
Finally we are in a special place and surrounded by nature, so our guests will need their own vehicle to explore the wonderful sights and experiences that Tuscany has to offer.
