Poggio all'Agnello is a gated community resort in the small town of Populonia Stazione. It was originally a large farm which had become run down and abandoned. The buildings have been beautifully remodeled maintaining their original structure, and the park has been landscaped with lawns, trees, and recreation areas. The apartments are distributed in several buildings with parking areas near to each one. The work was completed just last year, so while it looks great, there are still a few rough edges... nothing to complain about, though - it's a huge property.... lots of work for remodeling and upkeep.
We had a ground floor apartment with a living/dining/kitchen, bath, walk-in closet, and bedroom. There was an area outside with a table and chairs. The kitchen was complete with everything you might need, including a drip coffee maker. Very comfortable bed. Large bathroom. Attention: you get only 1 roll of toilet paper for your entire stay! If you need more, you need to buy it!
The grounds are lovely - they are doing a great job. The trees are still young, but soon they will grow and provide much needed shade. There are three swimming pools, one of which is a 50 meter, 6 lane pool with lane lines and starting blocks. The other two are smaller. One has jets, and is listed as "heated" but I found the water to be as cold as the other pools. Great pool deck with lots of deck chairs and shade umbrellas.
The town of Populonia Stazione is within walking distance, and there you can find two small grocery shops, a bar/pizzeria, newspapers. Also a post office and, of course, the train station, which is small, but it is possible to arrive there by train!
The beach is 2 kilometers from the resort. We drove to Baratti so we didn't see the local beach.
The restaurant had very good food at reasonable prices.
The people at the reception were very polite and helpful.
This is a pretty quiet, family oriented resort. There are quiet times during the afternoon and at night. No night life or entertainment at all. Very nice!
