“Generally nice place, but some bad points too”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We (two adults, one kid) stayed one week at „Poggio al Pieve“. The facility is situated approx. 30 minutes away from the next smalltown with supermarket or gas station; as we did not see any kind of public transportation nearby a car is necessary. Small restaurants are available 4km away. Although the place is situated quite good in the middle of a lovely landscape and has a nice pool, we were a bit disappointed. When we arrived, the owner (still don´t know his name) just gave us the key and asked for advance payment - but did not introduce us to the facility and later on he was available occasionally only. So we had to find out things like where to bring the waste, how to get the coins for the washing machine etc. on our own. In opposite we found a very friendly person in the owner´s father who takes care of the gardens and the pool. We had an appartment below the private rooms of the owners, who were very loud around noon and in the evening / night (until 11pm). Also, the owner´s wife celebrated her birthday during our stay which caused the situation that their whole family –approx. 25 people- occupied the pool jumping and partying (apparently many guests felt a bit uncomfortable). All this might be regarded as typical italian by some people, but I never faced such behaviour in my six trips to Italia before. Parts of the apartment and esp. of the kitchen were quite dirty when we arrived. Obviously, even parts of the tableware had not been cleaned before our arrival so we found some mold. No WiFi available, TV has more than 250 programs (but all apart from one French in Italian language). So all in all, if you want to spend a peaceful time in a very, very rural part of Tuscany, this might be your place if you have the luck not to get the room we had. We do not intend to return, as the price was not that low (130 EUR/night for the apartment only) and for that amount of money you can surely get better quality...

We stayed at the Poggio alla Pieve for one week in july and it was very nice.

We wanted a high end place to stay in nice surroundings as a starting point for various trips to the different towns of Tuscany. We wanted nice views and the slow pace you get in the countryside. AND WE GOT IT!

The appartment "Melograno" was 70 m2 divided between one bedroom and one kitchen/dining/livingroom and it was perfect for our needs (2 adults and 1 15 month old toddler).

High chair and cod was provided without additional costs and the kitchen was fitted for cooking - not something you can take for granted at agriturismos in Tuscany.

The Poggio itself is beautiful restored and equipped with a very nice pool area. Our toddler very much enjoyed the playground.

Upon arrival the hosts invited us to a wine tasting with the other guests and we were able to taste different local wines, sausages, spaghetti, olive oil etc. This was very nice.

If you have to point out a downside, you have to drive on little roads when you come and leave the poggio. But it's in beautiful scenery... Also a real supermarket is a 30 minute drive - so shop on your way to and from your visits in other towns.

We would highly recommend Poggioalla Pieve to families visiting Tuscany.
