A Secluded Garden Getaway
Constructed near the end of the 15thC, the Villa Origo’s origins were humble as a highway inn. Soon after, it became an estate owned by the Santa Maria della Scala hospital in Siena before it was purchased by the Origo family in 1924 and transformed into the dreamy homestead it continues to serve as today. Built in three tiers on the slope of a hill, the villa is adorned with frescoed walls, a library brimming with leather-bound books, and log fireplaces, keeping the atmosphere both cozy and elegant.
Step outside into the vast English gardens, famous worldwide and drawing visitors for weekly guided tours (note: visitors are not allowed to roam free during the visits, so your privacy remains intact), and a sprawling 450 hectares of rolling hills and valleys for as far as the eye can see. You’ll find nestled within the grounds a swimming pool, a lemon grove, and a Pergola peppered with rose and wisteria where dinners are usually held al fresco.Spectacular Stays

How to Get There
Your trip will likely begin in Florence. Most transatlantic flights to Italy fly into either Milan or Rome, and Florence is readily accessible from either city.
There are daily flights from Rome or Milan to Florence’s Peretola Airport. Peretola is about 20 minutes from the centre of town (and the train station) by taxi.
You may also fly into Pisa and take a train to Florence, which takes about an hour. You would get from the Pisa airport to the train station using the high-speed PisaMover. Then, board the train to Florence (combined tickets for both the PisaMover and train to Florence are available at the airport Arrivals hall).
