We normally don't write reviews on trip adviser but we decided to this time to share our fantastic experience with Pamela and Johnny at Poggio Etrusco. This is a really peaceful and beautiful place to unwind and take some time out. Pam & Johnny really made our holiday with their hospitality, giving us pointers on day trips and restaurants in...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and hated to leave. The property is beautiful, lush with trees and orchards, chickens, dogs, cats and a horse. Pamela and Johnny are wonderful hosts and very helpful suggesting restaurants in town and other things we needed. We were upgraded in our accommodation and given a bottle of their own wine.... More

My husband and I stayed at Poggio Etrusco in November for three nights while taking 2 days of cooking classes with Pamela. When we arrived we were the only guests staying, Pamela was so dear to upgrade our accomodations to a nicer apartment and gave us one of their wonderful bottles of wine to enjoy that evening. The breakfast we... More

Four of us showed up for Thanksgiving in Tuscany and Pamela's cooking class was the highlight of the week. We learned, ate, laughed and thoroughly enjoyed our day with the Johns family. Each of us highly recommend this glorious opportunity!

What a fabulous Villa in Tuscany! We stayed several nights and had time to really enjoy the grounds, the pool & the gorgeous countryside. What an amazing setting! The rooms were beautiful & comfortable. Our unit had a full kitchen & living area, would have been fabulous for our whole family or a group. They even have a delicious red... More

You know you have entered an authentic paradise from the moment you pull into the drive and see the huge wine barrels, the small unobtrusive sign of Poggio Estruco and travel down the gravel path to be warmly greeted by the host and hostess, Pamela and Johnny and their wonderful dogs, Bella and Luis. The essence of all just takes... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and could not wait to leave. We understand it was a 400 year old home but that is no excuse for being dirty and smelly. Large bugs were often seen in our apartment. Lighting was terrible. l felt like website pictures were misleading. Grounds were unkept. Thought we would be able to do laundry ,... More

This villa had a great Tuscan feel with English speaking (American) host and hostess. The farmhouse is lovely although a but chilly. Extra blankets would be helpful. The breakfast was surprisingly sparse and looked a bit like leftovers had been tossed out for the guests. Nothing hot except tea and coffee. Thought it would be more gourmet given the emphasis...

We had a cooking course with Pamella,while staying in the area in the first week of June 2013. Southern Tuscany, Pamella wanted to teach us how to do Crudites, which could not be farther from any Tuscan meal I have ever eaten. The first was a vegetable soup one can find in any drugstore book shop in LA where we... More

My husband and I found a gem in Tuscany - Poggio Etrusco. From the beginning, contacting Pamela via her website was an easy and helpful experience. She gave a lot of great information about the area, how to get there, options for car vs train, etc. We ended up renting a car from Rome and drove to her lovely home.... More
