We stayed here for 5 days and found it a perfect location to explore Tuscany (within 30 minutes drive from Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano, Voltera etc.) Rooms are apartment like so self catering - recommended to keep overall costs down. Good wine is made on the farm and enjoyable winetasting was presented by Gianni (the one son). Service is typical laid-back Italian style. Huge pool, beautiful views and quiet country feel to round off a 9 out of 10 experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Strategically positioned between Florence and Siena, in the heart of the Chianti region, Villa Il Pozzo will impress its guests with stunning views of the gentle rolling hills leading to the extraordinary ancient towers of San Gimignano. All its beautiful apartments are personally furnished by Mrs. Gori with precious original antiques. Amenities include a magnificent Mediterranean-style swimming pool, a private library with recent and antique literature, a breathtaking classical Tuscan garden with hand-carved stone balusters and huge terracotta urns. Our guests may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the Villa and taste the excellent Chianti wine and Olive Oil produced by the farm. Stucco, frescoes, and high hand-painted ceilings make Villa Il Pozzo the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. At walking distance there are a family-owned Tuscan Restaurant, a mini-market, and one of the oldest churches of the region. Following an old tradition, all the weddings of the Gori family members are celebrated in this Romanic jewel. ... more less
