We are a young couple and stayed one week in "La Capanna" in mid of October 2014. The location is perfect. Though only 5 minutes to the main entrance of San Gimignano by feet it is calm and in nature. I think even some official parking spots to visit San Gimignano are farer away. In Podere Poggiluglio there are only... More

One of the best places to stay in Tuscany, it is centrally placed between Sienna and Florence. It offers brilliant accommodation with all the amenities that you could want. Super swimming pool. Lovely hosts, both Franco and Gaetana make you feel so welcome. The views are great and you are only a short walk from the magical town of San... More

Firstly, thank you to Franco and Gaetana for their warm welcome and for sharing there home with us. There is not a lot I can add to the previous reviews, only that you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. We had the cottage for a week and I suppose the biggest compliment I can pay is... More

One fantastic place. This has been our sixth visit here, we always booked with Thomson in the past but they pulled out of central Tuscany, (their loss), so we went direct. Sorting everything out from start to finish was easy. We paid direct for the villa, booked flights with Jet 2 and booked our hire car with Maggiore which I... More

We stayed in La Capanna, Podere Poggiluglio 5th - 19th July 2014 and enjoyed every minute of our stay. San Gimignano is but a few minutes walk up the hill and we loved the town and trying out as many of the restuarants as we could. The accommodation was simply wonderful. Spacious with fantastic views over the Tuscan countryside. There... More

We loved our week here. It was like being in paradise. We stayed in the cottage and our friends stayed in the studio. Both were wonderful! It was just a short 10 minute walk to san Gimignano and we loved the town. Had some lovely meals there and also enjoyed the shopping. Our hosts were lovely people, so friendly and... More

Perfect place and location for a stay here, peaceful location but only minutes walk from the old town. Definitely recommend! Lovely apartment and beautifully maintained pool and gardens! Hosts were also very welcoming. Would take a lot to beat.

This is an exceptional property within the Tuscan countryside within a ten minute walk of San Gimignano. This was our second visit to Poggiluglio, our first to L'ovile and this time to La Capanna. There is really no comparison. La Capanna is a much more substantial property, thought the price is also more substantial! The owners are lovely people and... More

We had the apartment L'Ovile, it's a loveley quiet apartment next to the Pool, with a grand view to a typical tuscany "scenerie"! Everyone... More

April 5 - 26, 2014 We've just spent a wonderful three weeks at Podere Poggiluglio in the 'apartment' named La Capanna. Our hosts, Gaetana and Franco and the rest of their family have been very welcoming and helpful when needed. The view from the living room window indicated what day we would have ahead of us for the three weeks... More
