“Fantastic. The best place in Tuscany. Look no further!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2009

THe only reluctance I have in writing a review is that it might be full next time we book! We have stayed here twice in 2005 for two weeks and 2009 for 29 days. It is the ultimate Tuscany family hoiliday destination. We have three children 10, 8 and 5 and for them and us it is a paradise. It is half way between Siena and Florence (25 min from each) and it looks out to San Gimignano. The apartments are wonderful, the family who own it are delightful. Lorenzo the manager is excellent and really helpful. The vineyards and olive groves are beautiful and you drink their wine and use their olive oil. We have spent 12 or more weeks in Italy from Rome to Milan and just about everywhere between and nothing comes close to Borgo Poneta. The pool is amazing. We simply love it and God willing we will come back many times.

July is hot (up to 35 degrees) but it is a great time to visit because all of Tuscany has festivals, shows, music etc.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2009

This was our first experience at an agriturismo and must say it was wonderful. The location was superb, among hills of olive trees and vineyards (the farm actually produces its own wine and olive oil). Florence and Siena are nearby and you can actually see the towers of San Gimignano from the agriturismo. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and the free wi-fi was fast. It felt as if we were staying at our own personal resort, the pool was beautiful and we practically had it to ourselves. The manager Lorenzo was incredibly helpful and nice.
