“The perfect Tuscan getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2008

This place was a great way to spend our honeymoon. It's rustic but perfectly comfortable. The owners, Antonella and Ricardo, were warm and friendly, although their English is a bit limited. They have a beautiful property up in the hills above Florence, very close to the Chianti Rufina wine producing region. Fattoria Il Poeta is a self sustaining agriturismo paradise. They have chickens, geese, turkeys, horses, ponies, a donkey, 3 dogs, and about 20 cats. They offer to cook breakfast and dinner upon request, or you can cook for yourself in your fully furnished apartment. We ate with them one night, and Ricardo caught a wild boar with his bare hands and made us fresh pork chops! He's actually a wonderful cook, and they serve home-made wine, grappa, and nochello (a sweet nut based apertiff). Also, the home-made olive oil was amazing! We would definitely consider staying here again, although the drive up the hill is a bit scary at first.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
On the hills surrounding Florence near the ancient fountain of the poet, you may spend your holidays on a real fairy tale farm among geese, hens, cows, donkeys and horses. Here men and animals live and work together to fulfil the dream of an organic and as far as possible, self-sufficient island.Guests can take part in the activities of the farm or just relax completely and enjoy the peace of these places. On a farm holiday at il Poeta you can have horse-riding lessons or go horse riding or donkey trekking.For gourmet food lovers, we prepare typical meals attending to every detail and using healthy and delicious products from the farm. Il Poeta farm holiday is the ideal place for anyone who loves animals, good food, nature and the environment. We have two apartments and one room for our guests, perfectly furnished in the Tuscan style and equipped with every comfort. Both of the apartments have a large bedroom, a kitchen and living room, bathroom and a private space outside. All the areas are close to one another and can be connected to host families or larger groups. In our very small restaurant you can taste dishes with forgotten flavours made using mainly our products and the products of regional businesses. In winter the meals are served in the chimney room, a warm and welcoming room with a beautiful fire that is always lit. In summer, we eat in the garden and enjoy the freshness of the evenings. All our guests sit around the same table because a farm holiday also implies conviviality and a delight in getting to know people who often share the same love for nature and the environment ... more   less
