“The Tuscan dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Beautiful, serene setting. Comfortable accommodation full of charm and history. Very friendly and helpful host (Elisabetta). Each day started with a perfect breakfast of fresh coffee, fruit, honey, bread and various cheeses prepared by Elisabetta. The villa is perfectly located to explore the nearby historic sites and vineyards. If you're looking to relax, soak up the Tuscan charm and see one of the most beautiful parts of Italy at a reasonable price - (our 6 nights star worked out at less than EUR80 a night!) Villa il Poggio is perfect. Thank you Elisabetta - we'll be back:)

Don't forget to check out Furcillo's restaurant in Sinalunga!

I visited this magnificent place in October, and spent there only 1 night. But for me it was one of the most memorable part of my trip, and since then I never stopped dreaming to return there.
This place is great in many respects, but main values personally for me are: 1) phenomenal owner of the villa - Elisabetta! Thank you again for your outstanding hospitality, very kind attitude and of course breakfasts! 2) 'musem' atmosphere of the villa and very unique charm of surroundings (with pool, stable, etc.) 3) great starting point to discover country side of Tuscany (during any time of year). But don't repeat my mistakes, come by car! Meanwhile you also can take some mountain bikes from Elisabetta. I assure you it's a great way to enjoy beauty of countryside as well.
I so much fell in love with this unique place, that definitely want to stay there some more time in near future, to live those beautiful emotions again.

Elisabetta is wonderful, and her place is absolutely charming. We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon in September. The countryside is beautiful and quiet. Her villa is refreshingly authentic and comfortable. Elisabetta makes the best Italian coffee we had in the north or the south!

We had such a relaxing, peaceful stay here, we are certain to be back for a more extended stay next time. Thank you!

We spent 2 days in villa il poggio during our 14 days honeymoon in Italy, and think it is the best place we stay.
Villa il poggio Just stands beside the beautiful Tuscany area but it is also very convenient to go to the surrounded small town.You an see from the map that the villa is at the center between Seina . Pienza and Cortona.We visited these small town during our Tuscany journey. (I like Piena best , dont miss it)
This villa give me a warm and peaceful feeling,and you can find many interesting furniture or accessory in the bedroom . living room even kitchen.we spent a lot of time photo here and there.
Elisabetta, the owner, is avery kind and friendly.She gave us a lot information and suggestion , like the small town Montepulcaino. She also show us her stable , and this is our first time to see a real stable.
There is a little pity that Tuscany was that "green" in late September , the view wasnt as beautiful as pictures. We will come back again and find the most beautiful Tuscany in summer.

We got married in Siena and spent two glorious weeks at Villa il Poggio. The owner, Elisabetta Perez, is charming and delightful. She is a fountain of knowledge with where to go and what to see. If you are looking for a place off the beaten path but yet close enough to enjoy all the sites then Villa Poggio should be at the top of your list.
The apartment, Geranium, was authentic and charming. Clean and tidy with a delighftul patio area to sit and relax and enjoy our coffee and meals. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, the bedrooms are comfortable and roomy, the bathrooms are large and the shower's water pressure was super.
The views by the pool are breathtaking. The pool was very clean with lovely shade umbrellas and patio tables to relax by.
One always wonders, well I do anyway, if the pictures you see online will live up to reality. Well, Villa Poggio does! In fact, reality is better. We loved every single moment there.

If you want to spend a few days in authentic aristocrat Tuscany villa and to find little villages and castles in the area- Villa il Poggio is your place! This marvelous villa is situated in quiet and picturesque village Sinalunga (it is very close to Siena and takes 1 hour with car to Florence). The stay in Villa il Poggio will give you the possibility to discover the breathtaking views of Val d’Orcia- medieval castles, sunny rolling hills, isolated hilltop towns, charming farmhouses and isolated rural homes, avenues of cypresses, rows of vineyards, olive groves, and golden-brown wheat fields (do not miss to visit Pienza, Montalchino and Montepulchiano). Elisabetta- the queen of Villa il Poggio- is perfect guide and charming host- in the very beginning of the day you can enjoy her homemade jams and breakfasts with aromatic Italian coffee. The little hosts of the Villa il Poggio are few dogs- Wilma, Cleo and Monstressa Zoe (our favorite!), cats and very beautiful horses.There is a swimming pool in the garden of Villa il Poggio –so, you can spend one lazy day around it! The decision is made- we will come back the next summer- molte grazie Elisabetta! Magda & Nathalia

I am very particular about where I stay. Accommodation marks the overall experience of every holiday. So when we arrived in the late evening I was a bit sceptical about what it would be like...
The villa is very old and walking through it was like entering a museum. I was in awe. The next morning I woke up and we strolled through the grounds we were so giddy about how beautiful the views of the property were. Truly stunning! Our room was very large and decorated in a traditional way but extremely clean. Lying in bed you can see the old beams of the house. There is so much character to this villa. We stayed one extra day. Elisabetta was so interesting to meet and provided us all our travel information with much enthusiasm and patience. Leaving made us feel very nostalgic.
