This well equipped villa is on a hillside with views across a valley which are breathtaking . The facilities provided are very comprehensive, the kitchen is well equipped so you can take advantage of the local produce on offer at two supermarkets, a short drive away. All the furnishings are of good quality, and the aircon is efficient, which was welcome as during our stay the temperature was higher than we expected for early June. A car is essential if you want to take advantage of the close proximity to Florence, Pisa and Siena together with the "Chianti Route" where you will discover wineries and restaurants offering great menus to go with the obvious wine!
My Family and I stayed at the villa in September 2014. It was an incredible place. The Villa has wonderful views around the surrounding countryside, and the fit out is incredible. Big, comfortable beds, a modern European kitchen and the BBQ out the back in awesome! The location was wonderful, and easy to find. We enjoyed having a hire car a must) and exploring the local countryside. The bus to Florence is only a short drive away, and free parking is available to park your car whilst in the city for day tripping.
David and Pilar were pleasant to deal with throughout the process and were very welcoming, and could not be faulted. The Villa was everything we imagined and more, and we would not hesitate to go back again. We have since recommended the villa to some friends who are also hoping to go later this year.
This was an absolut dream and no words could truly descibe this location. We had an amazing time and want to thank David and Pilar for their big hearts and this wonderful house to stay in. Everything in the house has so much charme and love, that we actually spent more time in the house, as we anticipated. Well, we are happy and will come back next year.
We stayed in this villa for a week with family and friends and it was wonderful! The home is tastefully furnished and extremely comfortable. The patio and garden were true favorites for us after a long day of sightseeing! The view is simply breathtaking!
David is a gracious host who was incredibly accommodating and the central air condition that was installed while we were there was a huge hit during an extremely hot summer week!
There are incredible restaurants within short drive and Florence is only 15 minutes away. We can't wait to return!!
I was on a business trip to Florence and chose Villa Poggio Secco Appartamento for my accommodation. The modern amenities like high speed internet connection and easy accessibility to this location made me chose this villa. Although this was my business trip but the beautiful location and the luxurious ambience of the villa made me feel like I was on a holiday. I completely enjoyed staying in this villa which is surrounded by lush green mountains. After this trip I will surely plan more trips for experiencing the hospitality of Villa Poggio Secco Appartamento with my family.
