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

As we drove closer to the house, we passed through a Zona Industrial - a few factories for grappa processing and other such facilities - we wondered what we were getting. But when we... More
