“Comfortable house in the quiet surroundings of Firenze”

We stayed with 5 people for one week in this very comfortable, well equiped house in the Florence tuscan countryside. You can regard it as a secret, a nice house, accessible by a dirt road )not very convinient by the way which makes it even more a special experience to stay here. We all liked it very much to stay for one week at this place.

“Very nice house in a beautiful place - for authentic holidays!”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Very good place to chill out and spend some quality time with family.

It does not look like a rental: inside, you feel you are in a house a friend have let you for holidays because decoration is top notch. This significantly contributes to forget about work.

When you end up in such a secluded place with beautiful nature around, you are very likely to tell yourself « such a good idea not having booked a hotel anywhere else! »

It is no issues for reaching the place with a 4x4 / cross-over type of vehicle. However, if your car has little clearance to the ground, some areas would definitely become more « challenging… »

I recommend the little walk up the hill.

“A truly gorgeous rural idyll with plenty of amenities and the train line into Florence a short drive away.”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We spent 10 days here with our 2 small children (aged 3 and 18 months) in March. We had an absolutely amazing time! We were looking for something that felt remote, rural and very Tuscan yet would still have a supermarket nearby and easy access to Florence most days. This fitted the bill perfectly.
The house itself is a converted barn - just beautifully furnished yet still very homely. You've got everything you need there - loads of stuff for cooking too. It wasn't quite warm enough for a BBQ while we were there but there's a beautiful patio for alfresco dining. The views are stunning and you can walk out onto hiking trails through the woods and hills. The first thing we saw out of the bedroom window when we arrived was a wild boar snuffling around beyond the garden fence. Over the track is a larger farmhouse where the owners friends are always about if you have any problems (we didn't). The drive up into the hills, and especially the track up to the villa itself makes you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere - very exciting!
With small children though we weren't keen on being completely isolated, and a 10 minute drive away is the small town of Calenzano, which has a supermarket complex on its outskirts also containing a pharmacy, an ice cream shop, soft play area and bouncy castle. Our children quite obviously preferred this to the Uffizi.
One of the best things for us was being able to take the train into Florence, so no driving into the centre of town or attempting to park, neither of which would have created harmony in our hire car. The train takes about 30 mins from Calenzano, or 20 from Prato further up the road. Parking is free and plentiful at Calenzano, the train is about 5 euros return and the kids LOVED it. We did 5 full days in Florence this way and it worked really well. The motorway is also close (but not too close!) for easy day trips further south to Siena and around.
Overall, the perfect family holiday for anyone who wants to be comfortable deep in the Tuscan countryside with Florence easily accessible.

“A truly beautiful place”

We loved our stay at Il Poggio.

The house is a very beautiful old stone barn conversion. Beautiful full kitchen with eating area, large living room with dining area. 1/2 bath downstairs, two full baths upstairs, with two bedrooms and small den. It's perfect for large families, couples traveling together, groups of friends, or a romantic getaway.

It was just far enough from Florence to make you feel totally removed in the beautiful hills, but close enough that you never dreaded having to drive back home after a long day in the city. It is perfect as a base for exploring the region, or for just escaping for a rest. I would love to stay here for months.

The only thing that could have been better was wi-fi that functioned when you wanted it to. It cut on and off. But I think that the location limits accessibility. We didn't care, though.

The neighbors were very helpful, too!

The price was terrific for what you get. Simply amazing. We would LOVE to return.

“Absolutely Stunning. A Complete Gem!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I did a tour of Tuscany and we booked to stay at the house for two nights. It was the first place that we stayed at and we actually wished we had booked to stay there for the whole week. It was absolutely perfect. Set up in the hills, you reach the house by a fairly steep rocky road, and once you are up there, it is break-taking. It is quiet and tranquil with the odd neighbour here and there so you don’t feel completely deserted. The house itself is amazing, we were in awe of the decor and finishing touches. It is so spacious, private, comfortable, modern yet traditional and has every kind of kitchen utensil that you would wish for.
It’s the ideal place to stay if you want peace and quiet, and also the option of driving to a local bar if you so wish. I can’t recommend this place highly enough and really hope to stay there again soon.
