We stayed here for 3 days in October and Loved it. The pictures are true and the grounds are peacefully. We loved the homey feel and the beds were comfortable. Even though there were other guests on the property, we felt like we were had the whole complex to ourselves. After being in Rome with the hustle and noise, it... More

The wine tasting was great and after sampling... More

We visited Santa Maria a Poneta 4 years ago, and was charmed by the property (the previous holiday was a bit tainted by work issues that kept coming up), but this time I was ready to switch off and RELAX for the whole week. It was an easy decision to return. Santa Maria a Poneta is a little paradise, halfway... More

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
