Great place! We were there last year and are going back in October! Perfectly situated in charming area – you can attend Florence, Siena and San Gimignano easily from here. We had the Barberino appartment which has a great loggia with a beautiful view. Our daughter loved the horses - and our son played football with the dogs (-: Definitely... More

We selected this property becasue it seemed to be in an area both quiet and easily accessible. It was that and so much more. Both the owner and his wife were friendly and helpful and the caretaker spoke English quite well. We stayed in one of the two bedroom units and it was tastefully decorated and everything worked properly. The... More

Our second stay at Santa Maria a Poneta was even more delightful than the first. This time we had a smaller apartment (the Vico) with an extra (handicapped) bathroom. Our apartment faced the pool, yet was very private, thanks to wide hedges. We went in late September and it was still warm enough to swim. The place is just beautiful,... More

Bulls Eye in Toscana Santa Maria a Poneta is situated right in Bulls Eye if you want to visit Florence, Pisa or Senna. The beautiful house with the surrounding garden and riding ground gives plenty of room to relax. The rooms are cool when the temperature outside gets hot. We felt very welcome, and it is nice that the host... More

We have tried other italian Agri Tourismi, but every time revert to Santa Maria a Poneta. This was our sevent stay at Santa Maria and hopefully not... More

We stayed in Santa Maria a Poneta the last week of June 2014 and we had a fantastic stay in Tuscany. Santa Maria a Poneta is perfectly located between Florence and Siena, providing our family with the option of driving relatively short distances to all the major attractions without spending your whole day in the car. The location also allows... More
