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

Anyone who has ever dreamed of having an authentic Tuscan experience- we found it at Poggio Etrusco! Pamela(a noted cookbook author) and her husband Johhny, were so welcoming and went out their way to help us arrange so many of our week's activities. The farmhouse was built in the 1600's and has been lovingly renovated to include 3 - 2... More

We could not have asked for a more beautiful stay at Agriturismo Poggio Etrusco! This amazing estate in Montepulciano was the highlight of our European vacation. One of our main goals while visiting Tuscany was not only to visit the nearby towns such as Chianti, Pienza, Pisa and Florence but solely to participate in a private family cooking class with...
