I am tempted to criticize the Oct. 15 review, because it doesn't appear to describe the same property we visited just a week later, but people have different tastes. If your taste is toward a quiet farm experience, if you want to visit a working farm high on a hill overlooking Chianti, if you look forward to no TV, and if you enjoy cooking your own meals and eating them outdoors at a table overlooking the Val d'Elsa, you must go to Quercia al Poggio. Giordana is sweet as sugar. She made our visit unforgettable and was generous with espresso and advice. Get the welcome dinner. It included the best Tiramisu we had in Italy and lasted two days. GPS will help in finding the entrance; we had trouble finding it at night but not during the day. A gorgeous property, a nice apartment, and Giordana and the cats made our stay unforgettable.
