We discovered Il Poggio through an RCI timeshare exchange. It was love at first sight! Our two bedroom unit was sparsely furnished in povera Tuscan style, with terra cotta floors, iron headboards and double beds, two adequate bathrooms, a small, but well-equipped kitchen, dining area and a small patio that overlooked the rolling hills. The town's bell tower rang in the distance, reminding us that we were in a very special place surrounded by medieval history. There is a charming little store onsite with an amazing array of estate wines, olive oil, farm raised prosciutto and hams plus cheeses and pastas in every shape with ragu sauces to die for! This agriturismo was truly amazing!!! There is even an equestrian center and farm located below the property for the horsey set! I practiced my best italiano with the staff and found them to be very cordial and accomodating. The morning cappuccino and pastries were the best in Toscana! The views from the property were breathtaking, with castles and villas dotting the hills. I can't wait to return to Il Poggio and to spend the days touring the immediate area and discovering the little hamlets and eateries.

Room Tip: In addition to the one and two bedroom apartments, there were suites above the main building that looked quite inviting. There is a small charge of 20 euros per week to use the pools and for discounts in the onsite store (very helpful when purchasing wine and food), plus the discount applied to Fonteverde Terme Spa, which was only a few miles down the road. There is also wi-fi for an additional charge which was unreliable at times, but pretty amazing considering the remoteness of the resort.

We weren't expecting total luxury but some of the furnishings and utensiles really do need updating. In saying that the staff were excellent and the swimming pools are really well appointed and in our experience were not busy, plenty of loungers. The views are indeed stunning. The billiard room is a nice place to escape the sun. The restaurant is good although I did find that the Maitre'd did try to point you in the way of the more expensive wines. You will need a car to explore the surrounding area and if you do you will not be disappointed. Unlike a previous reveiwer we did manage to find a couple of English speaking channels, not that we were there to watch TV...

Room Tip: Looking from reception ask for a room on the left as these will have better views.

When we checked in and began speaking english we were handled indifferently as compared to the Italians around us who were checking in and greeted warmly. The one bedroom apartment we were given was furnished with furniture that was old and outdated and showed its wear. There was only a shower which was very small. The kitchen was also small and the pots/pan were very well used. The tv was probably a 19 inch and english speaking stations were non-existant.

We spent two weeks in Italy - one here and one south in a more tourist location. The combination made the best of Italy. Definately need a rental car. Don't even think of coming to this location without one.

Check in was very easy. Getting here - not so much. Mainly because, despite emailing them for directions, I relied on my Garmin. Don't rely on Garmin with San Casciano dei Bagni -- that's actually the next town over and Garmin will take you on "unpaved roads." Follow the directions from the resort.

Only farm animal I saw was a rooter and a hen. And farm cats. We were off season, so that may explain it.

Nice one bedroom. - RCI exchange. Sleeper sofa PLUS twin sleeper in living room. Working fireplace and patio. Amazing. Would get up early - see the sights - hit local markets - come back and cook our findings and open the wine - sit on the patio for a bit, then light a fire. Was a beautiful week.

Again, though, don't expect a "resort." We were jet lagged on the first day when they had a welcome reception, then never again heard from the management, which was okay with us. The place sits on top of a hill in the middle of nowhere. Never did find and "open" restaurant in the adjacent town. Wandered the hill side and the olive tree grove. Visited the local church dated back to OH MY GOODNESS. And used it as a focal point for touring the hills.

Grocery store near Sarteno entrance to A1 -- stocked up on the way to the place - hit local markets after that.

Highly recommend, but you have to know what you're getting in to -- middle of no where, close to all, with wonderful view and fireplace -- ask for a first floor patio.

Only negatives - 1. - people above us. Walls are thin and they were horribly obnoxious -- 2am drunken fits. AND..2.. the "woman in charge." She was a B%$#H. A young woman at the desk was excellent. A man was a bit machismo, but okay and rather helpful. The other woman - didn't give us Americans the time of day.
