“Awesome B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

My wife and I came and stayed for 5 nights. It is awesome. If you want to be out of a big city it has everything you want. The setting is absolutely magical with a gorgeous view over the valley. The owner is a hoot, very friendly, and we had many funny conversations using international spine language. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the pool is awesome - cool place to hangout for the afternoon. You can even sunbake with the owner if you want !! About an hour to Siena or Florence so easy for a day trip. Will stay again.

This B&B is the best stay we had in Tuscany. What a beautiful house and place to stay. Everything is super clean and nicely done. Breakfast is served with a smiling / singing owner, lovely! This place is definaly one to return to.

I cannot recommend Poggio del Drago highly enough. From the minute we drove up we felt totally at home. The location is very pretty (way off the main road for peace and quiet but very convenient for traveling about) and the house welcoming. The farmhouse has been renovated in recent years and the owners have done an outstanding job of maintaining the character of the house while still ensuring the rooms are modern, inviting and well appointed, yet still cozy. As someone who travels a lot for work and stays in some very nice hotels I can honestly say this is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed in!!! Our host (Emanuele) was adorable - attentive without being overbearing and willing to make suggestions on day-trips, restaurants etc . With his moderate English, our limited Italian and lots of arm gestures we had some great conversations!!! Poggio del Drago offers five rooms and everyone eats breakfast around the same family style table. That was part of the fun - sharing experiences with the other guests. This is the ideal place to stay and use as a base for exploring all Tuscany has to offer. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer as I would have enjoyed staying at "home" one day enjoying the lovely pool and generally relaxing. I am already planning when I can go back!

This B&B is the healthiest place imaginable. It sits up on a hilltop with postcard views of the Tuscan landscape. The entire area - rooms, pool, landscaping is just immaculate. Emanuele treats every guest as if you are a long lost cousin. My girlfriend wanted to (still wants) to take him home with us. There are only 3 or 4 rooms so you will not be crowded.
It is a ways out of Arezzo, but just off a main road so you must have a car to get to it, but once you are there you will agree - it's well worth the extra driving.
Don't be shocked by the little drive up to the house from the main road - yes it's very steep - as is all the land around you. Breakfast is fantastic and every guest we met was wonderful.
I think the bed was a memory foam mattress - very comfortable. The workmanship of doors and windows i found fascinating - I had to take photos of them. You will like this place.

Room Tip: Come to Draggo for relaxation or if you are between cities - it's an Oasis.

We had a lovely stay at Poggio del Drago. The neighbourhoud is nice, beautiful and very quite, relax,... in the middle of the Tuscan hills, lovely ! Nice pool and the B&B is very nice and modern. It really was our cup of tea !
And last but not least, the owner of the B&B, Emanuele, we just loved him as well. every morning we could hear him laugh, his optimism showed us more about the italian way of living. If it's possible we will for sure come back !

Room Tip: room Ophelia was the nicest room I think.

Clean, cozy and modern B&B with a lovely view. Emanuelle is very nice and friendly - he even made us late breakfast which is very sweet of him! He's also very helpful and gives good recommendations for restaurants and vineyards - we still raved about the food and wine! Staying at this B&B is definitely the best part of our trip and wished we had stayed longer!
