“Excellent location, golfing and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stayed at Poggio Dei Medici during a late summer week end. The location is beautiful, the golf course absolutely fine tough quite difficult. The view from the room was very relaxing. The room was gorgeous, very clean and elegant. Breakfast was also very good, and we had it on a beautiful terrace. Dinner was also good-quality and well served. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the SPA. Nearby is the Mugello racing ring and Scarperia, a romantic small town worth the visit.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view on the golf course

A rustic setting in the Italian countryside, 30 minutes from Florence and 5 minutes from Mugello Race Track. The rooms are huge, very clean and have the bonus of air con. There is plenty of on site parking. Pool area is nice with on duty life guard. Golf staff and front desk very helpful. The Internet was ok at times but struggled when busy which is annoying. Breakfast is very good with the option of sitting outside but trying to eat at other times is more difficult as the pool bar and restaurant aren't always open at stated time on the hotel paperwork, but you can get a sandwich at the bar. The gym is well equipped and there is a long list of treatments available. Overall I would stay again

We booked this hotel and free golf arrangement via a golf travel website for a very attractive price. We were surprised (positively) about the hotel, the breakfast, swimming pool, bar and resto at the pool, the location and the perfect maintained golf course. Located 20km from Firenze and a 60-90 min drive from Sienna, Pisa, Lucca, ..., it will be hard to find a better golf / culture / relax destination. Nothing to complain ? Perhaps the 18 euro you pay for a 4 hour internet connection but compared to the price / quality for the rest, just enjoy ... .

Have just visited UNA Poggio Dei Medici in Tuscany, Italy once again.
It is a wonderful place, the staff are very friendly and do their best to help.
The rooms (only tried the the ones in the main building) are very spacious and have good beds and a nice big bathroom.
The golf course is long (walking over 11 kilometers) and not easy due to lots of hills and by that also the possibility of many difficult lies.

I have been at Poggio dei Medici with Executive room or suite several times and I always felt good. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds, huge bathroom and a nice balcony where you can see a small part of the beautiful golf course. The golf course is impressive, hilly and hard to play. Expect someting special, but you should be fit as the course is demanding to walk. Above all the course is not busy and you have no pressure. Breakfast is ok, sometimes good, sometimes average. Dinner is ok, which you can take outdoor on a nice terrace. The pool area is very clean with enough space good maintained with enough sunbeds and sunshades, above all no crowded. Overall the staff is attentive and friendly. Florence is about 30 km away. Barbarino outlet about 10 km away worth to go there! You can find a lot of very good restaurants within 5 km.
I'm ready to go back.

After 6 hours driving from Munich we were quite tired, so it would be easier if the quickest way to the hotel from freeway was better marked, but it was not. The reception was good, the luggage was taken by buggy to our rooms, which were quite spacious and located at the house at the 4th green - tremendous view in the morning every day. Only marks here that the windows and doors do not let too much daylight in and bathroom needs some refurbishment. The breakfast were good, golf unfortunately not that much due to severe lack of water for couple of months - yellow fairways, and damaged teeboxes. Terrible view but rewarded with very good greens and generally nice and hilly course. We managed only 27 holes a day carrying our clubs, so it is rather for people who are fit or want to use buggy and run with two or three clubs between the shots from the car path to the bushes after their balls...the food at the hotel in the evening so below any expectations..as far as seafood was ok, t bone steak was never done well, even with my constant requests, and other meat based dish was served with the biggest fat piece in Tuscanny - the remarks that this is typical for the Italian food was rather silly. For golf lovers, unfortunate weather in my opinion does not explain why the bunkers were only once (!) raked by machines, so for 4 days they were just left hard as the clay and wet - pin positions the same for 7 days, while the workers were few and tended to follow the same flight, so you missed them and were accompanied by them for full 18 holes.

Room Tip: Take 1st floor at the building next to 4th green, great views if no fog in the morning

Poggio dei medici is a well established course in a beautiful location just north of Florence and easy to find due to excellent signposting.The course is very scenic,quite hilly and has fabulous views.The greens are USPGA and much better than all but the best courses in the UK.There is some water on the course but it doesnot really come into play making it good to play for all abilities.The hotel was not busy and they offered us an upgrade to a junior suite with sitting room en terrace.
it was large, nicely decorated,comfortable and very clean.The housekeeping lady was scrubbing the showercubicle on her knees.All the staff was very nice and helpful. breakfast was elaborate with fruits, juices and yoghurts,cheese,ham and salami and eggs can be ordered however you like them.As is common in italy there is a variety of cakes and croissants.
There is a restaurant and a spa with turkish bath which we did not try.The practice area is beautiful with many covered bays in a sunny spot with views over the whole course.
The nearby medieval town of Scarperia has nice restaurants of which we liked Anna Trend best,popular with locals.A short drive north is a large Outlet called Barberino which has Prada,Ralph Lauren,Cavalli you name it.Florence and Florence airport are nearby.
A super destination for a golfbreak.
