Our apartment was nicely decorated with a well appointed kitchen. They provided all of the amenities of home, self controlled heat (my wife and I visited during December when it was chilly and we appreciated the ability to control our own room temperature), sat-tv, wi-fi, and very cozy living room for reading and visiting. The owner and his "right hand...

The nicest rental we have ever had in the most beautiful area of Italy - Chianti, on a very lovely gated property. The location is absolutely perfect, the apartments generously sized, and the hosts very accommodating. And plenty of heat in late October. We long to return; we will return. The surrounding towns are charming: Barberino Val d'Elsa, Colle Val...

A wonderful gem in Tuscany. It is truly a dream to behold. The place is romantic, rustic, well kept, with friendly owners who are there for you with everything, from extra beds for children, to advice about where to eat. It is situated in the heart of Chianti with easy access to both Florence and Siena, They have horses too,...

Wonderful wonderful place, real Tuscan, Italian hospitality, suberbly furnished appartments and well within reach of many of the beautiful tuscan historical towns and sights. Added bonus - swimming pool and the home produced WINE. nothing better than watching the sun go down with a glass of read wind sitting by the pool relaxing with friends. I recomend to all!

Beautiful location. Even though there are a number of villas/apartments we felt that the privacy afforded was excellent. The owners could not have been more helpful and we felt completely relaxed and at home. We recommend Santa Maria a Poneta very highly.

My husband and I stayed at Il Paganello (www.ilpaganello.com...same owner as Santa Maria Poneta) in the apartment Cappella. It was a quiet retreat set among vineyards and olive trees. Our room at the villa was very nice, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the pool as well as the hills of the Tuscan Region. There was a kitchen in the room,...

Santa Maria a Poneta was the highlight of our accommodation while honeymooning in Italy. If you are ever looking for a central location to explore the region (Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa) or just a pad to relax, Santa Maria a Poneta should be on your list. We stayed in the well appointed Linari two-sleeper. Riccardo and Susanna were excellent...

“For one bedroom, with extra (handicapped) bathroom, the Vico as there were no stairs, and we could drive the car up to the cottage to unload baggage,etc. Previously we stayed at the two bedroom apartment behind the Vico, which we also loved.”
