Whenever I read a review that centers on the host, I'm always afraid that the accommodation itself may be less than great but the reviewer was kind. This was a last minute choice and I wasn't sure what to expect. First, yes, if you have kids, you need a car. There's a 900 meter walk to the bus stop. But... More

This place is perfect. On the practical side you can drive to Rufina in 10 min, park for free and catch the train to the centre of Florence in half an hour. I will come back here even if I don't go into Florence. The beautiful setting, the lovely apartments and Serena and Allesandro are brilliant! I can't, not mention... More

I was very selective in choosing an Agriturismo for our trip to Italy. I wanted to be far away from any major tourist stop, but close enough to Florence that we could easily visit for the day. I wanted family run, and authentic home cooking. Serena and Alessandro exceeded all expectations! From their warm welcoming when you first arrive to... More

We had a wonderful visit with Alessandro and Serena. Our boys (age 5 and 8) loved the pool and the aminals - particularly the mule Gepetto. The apartment was just right and we had a lovely outdoor space to ourself as well. Serena served wonderful breakfast and dinners (for dinner both in the small and very lovely restaurant room and...

We were pointed towards Serenas and Alessandros farm personally from an old friend of Serena in Florence. She said this place was wonderful and beautiful, and Serenas cooking fabulous; and it really was. We relaxed at the farm and enjoyed the scenery and the activities of the animals and Alessandro. Alessandro and Serena create a personal, warm and welcoming atmosphere... More

We only have nice things to say about this lovely place. Warm and friendly atmosphere, good apartment and wonderful food. And thanks to both Serena and Allessandro for good advice and interesting info about Tuscany and Firenze. The olive oil we bought from you is also a great success and we send friendly thoughts to you every time we use... More

Podere il Poggiolo is the perfect location for enjoying Tuscany with a young family. We rented a one bedroom apartment with kitchenette for a week, and were provided with a cot and highchair for our baby. The apartment was rustic but comfortable, with a good shower. The kitchenette had a fridge, gas hob and sink, and we were provided with... More

This was my first trip to Italy and both my and my husband's first stay at an agritourismo. We only stayed a few days as part of our multi-city Italian adventure, but the experience we had was amazing. Alessandro and Serena were fantastic hosts who helped us out with a last-minute room after our previous booking with a different agritourismo... More

We rented a room with kitchenette for eleven days and it was fantastic. The first experience was finding it. Google maps or the GPS gets close but goes farther down the road than it should. Somehow I overlooked the GPS coordinates on their website which you definitely should use. But with the help of some local people eventually we found... More
