This was by far one of the nicest palces we stayed at during our tour of Italy this past April 2013. Ivana, the owner of Il Poggetto, is an extremely sweet and attentive person. She made our 3 night stay here even more enjoyable than we could have imagined.
The views of the Tuscan hills from Il Poggetto are incredible! Lush greenery, blooming lemon trees, and colorful flowers are everywhere. Really breathtaking!
The apartment we stayed in (Il Gelsomino) was well furnished with a little kitchen, nice queen sized bed, working shower and toilet, and had a very "homey" feel to it.
Be prepared to walk downhill to the small town of Montespertoli if you do not plan to rent a car. I was 4 months pregnant during my stay here and I walked it up and down twice a day. It's about a 20 minute walk to town, where you can catch the bus that will take you to Florence.
If I were to go back to Tuscany I would definitely stay here again.
