We stayed at La Moraia in October 2011. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment in the main house, wiht two adults and two children.
La Moria is outside of Poggibonsi, 1 km past the small village of Talciona. The paved road ends at Talciona, and the remaining drive is a gravel road, in need of maintenance. The road is quite rough. The directions from the owner were clear and we had no trouble finding the property. Once the road is graded, it will be better, though the passage through Talciona is narrow with two sharp turns.
The lady at the property checked us in, and showed us the rooms and provided a copy of a hand-drawn map of Poggibonsi with the important places noted (post office, banks, grocery store, bus/train station, etc.)
We found the rooms to be quite large, the beds were comfortable, but the pillows at very thin and flat. The kitchen is equipped as expected for a holiday apartment, with minimal but adequate dishes, tableware, pots and pans. There was a cooktop, microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker, but no oven. There are no condiments, salt, pepper, etc. provided, nor is there soap for the dishwasher. There is an outdoor grill, but no charcoal provided either.
Though the weather was warmer than normal for October, the pool is not heated, so it was quite cold. However, many places close their pools before October, so at least it was available. There was small bookshelf inside the entry with a few books in several languages.
The inconvenience is that you must go into Poggibonsi for groceries or restaurants, and though it is not very far, it was 15-20 minutes each way given the roads. There is also no internet access, so it is best if you have planned all of your activities before arriving.
Overall we found the apartment to be good value and it suited our needs very well. It would be even nicer when it is a little warmer to use the pool, and if you are prepared with dish soap, condiments, and things for grilling.
