We visited Il Poggio during the week of April 13 - 20 and had an outstanding experience. Il Poggio is located in the midst of the Tuscan countryside adjacent to the village of Celle and a few kilometers from San Casciano dei Bagni. Upon arrival, we upgraded to a two bedroom, two bath apartment since the one-bedroom unit was not really sufficient for four adults. Our apartment was clean and in good repair with basic country style furniture. The kitchen was sufficient for our needs with a small refrigerator, full stove and oven, seating for six, etc. The terrace was delightful and the table and chairs in good condition. If you are looking for glitz, glamour and nightlife, Il Poggio is not for you. If you are looking for a relaxing experience in the Tuscan hills, you will be very happy here. We did not take advantage of the equestrian center or spa facilities, but did travel extensively in the area using Il Poggio as our base.
The restaurant was outstanding, with local food items featured. (If you are a vegetarian, though, your choices are very limited.) I enjoyed the wild boar stew. At breakfast, there is a good selection of locally prepared cheeses, meats, pastries, bread, etc.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On a hill near the medieval town of Celle sul Rigo, between Val d’Orcia and Val di Chiana, stands the Il Poggio Holiday Farm. The Farmhouse, the central building of the farm, offers a peerless view that spreads over Valle del Rigo, the Radicofani stronghold, Monte Amiata, Monte Cetona, up to Valle dell’Elvella which is bordered in perspective from the town of San Casciano dei Bagni. The Il Poggio buds from the join of two family farms grown up in the spirit of tradition. In 1987 it starts to be in business by doing the first refurbishments of the rural buildings. ... more less
