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.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- To spend time at Villa Il Poggio, in the heart of Tuscany, is to discover one's very roots. The ties with the past have never been cut. It can be felt in every wall of the villa, which, from its hilltop position, has dominated the surrounding countryside since the thirteenth century. Villa Il Poggio is proud and centuries old like the cypress trees that surround it. You arrive as a guest and leave as a friend, with a strong desire to return. ... more less
