Villa Poggiano set the bar for our trip to Tuscany and after 4 nights in the villa. The property is just minutes from Montepulciano and is in a beautiful setting on a hill surrounded by olive trees. The owner and onsite manager Stefania is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived on property. Our room was on the first floor of the Villa and was a spacious suite. We had a nice breakfast included each morning and Stefania helped us plan our activities daily from scenic walks, visits to vineyards, lunch & dinner suggestions and reservations, and a cooking class. We were not disappointed by a single suggestion and she even came to pick us up when we got a little off track on a walk. Also, the cooking class at Villa Poggiano was one of the highlights of our trip as we learned to make a number of traditional Tuscan dishes and dined in the Villa. I really cannot say enough good things about our stay and service provided and we will be back the next trip to Tuscany!
