“Dream villa in dream Tuscany”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

We spend a week in this villa and it was wonderful! The house is very old and decorated beautifully with old furniture. The room Verde has beautiful views over the landscape and consists actually of two rooms and a bathroom. The place is run by Elisabetta, who is a great host. She wants to make it perfect, and it is. Her breakfast is excellent, with a huge fruit salad, homemade cake, very good cheeses, fruit juice, etc. She also helps to point out places of interest if you ask her (churches, landscapes, etc.) and good places to eat (Forcillo, Fornacino, all close to the villa). The villa is located very convenient. Many lovely villages are within half an hour by car (Cortona, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena) and Florence takes an hour. De area is sooo beautiful, a roundtrip by car through the hills (in Val d'Orcia for example) or by bike is a must-do.
The garden of the villa and the swimming pool are also wonderful.
We really want to go back! We really really really recommend this place.

Both the flat we got and the garden corresponded well to the pictures we had seen. Big kitchen, little living-room, comfortable bathroom. All rooms furnished and equipped with good taste. The house is really old, a couple of hundred years old for certain. This was a place where we really enjoyed staying in during the hottest hours of this month of july: Flat stayed cool and the pool was confortable and very clean. The bed was maybe a little bit hard, but ok. The owner has cats and dogs and a stall for horses in the other end of the estate. Possibility to grill in the garden for the guests. Center of town is 15 min walk away and Sinalunga is not a tourist town, which was actually nice in my opinion. We both agreed that we would like staying there again and that we both found this place to be worth a strong recommendation.

We drived in North Italy for a month, now as we are at the end of our trip I can say this was the best place we have stayed in this trip. We headed from Liguria to Tuscany, I was very sad to leave sea side and go inland, but my partner insisted that we have to go. I am so glad we did, I enjoyed Tuscany as a result of staying in il Poggio.

Villa -Very old building with big garden, overall feeling is rustic, we had our own alfresco sitting area with umbrella in front of flat for morning breakfast.Garden is looked after enough, even garden has rustic feeling. There is a little path going to horse stable in the same estate. Garden is big, there are high trees which makes real shade when the sun is strong.

Flat- very specious for 2 people, kitchen has full equipment for your need of cooking. we were tired of eating out by then we enjoyed some nights of cooking at home. There is barbeque in the garden we used. Bedroom was dark but as some other people mentioned this kept the flat cool, it is a stone building it was cool through the day.

Swimingpool - I dont like myself swimingpools as they feel artifical, but I have enjoyed staying around swimingpool as it is in the garden, partly surrounded with trees, over looking to Tuscany hills. Mostly not many guests around the pool. Clean, well looked after...

Town - Sinalunga is not a turisty town, As a result instead of wine shops , you have local bakery, butcher, food shop as you would get in ordinary town. Location of town is excelent, 30 min to 1 hour drive you reach many diffirent pretty towns, Siena, Pienza, Cortona, Montepulciano etc...
Villa is just end of the town, close enough to walk to town, but feels outside once you enter the estate.

We would like to go back to il Poggio for sure.

This villa is a real gem in the heart of Tuscany. The house dates from 1400 and is full of beautiful antiques. The rooms have views to die for. The place is exclusive. Elizabetta is a warm and charming hostess. Also we love the pool.

This wonderful B&B run by Elizabetta and her daughter should be on a list for must stays while visiting the Tuscany area. Centrally located to many great villages and sites. The Villa itself has fantastic views of the countryside. There are several of the best places to eat in Tuscany within 5 minutes of the villa. Make sure you get an apartment we where there on a cool day and Elizabetta changed our rooms (no heat) to a two bedroom apartment which was wondeful - thanks !!!
