We have stayed twice at Poggioluglio, in the cottage and the studio apartment. Location is perfect for access to San Gimignano (saving a fortune in parking charges for your car and meaning you can have a drink with your meal and not worry about driving).
Franco & Gaetana are so welcoming and the property is idyllic set amongst olive and vine groves.
With only having 3 rooms to rent you can escape from other tourists; often you have the pool area to yourself. The rooms are all well furnished and the well equiped kitchen areas mean you can easily cater for yourself if you don't want to walk the five minutes up the hill into town. The cottage is also very private. In the evenings we sat out, drank Franco's wine and watched the fireflies dancing in the olive groves.
If you've never come across Poggioluglio before it's because it was exclusive to a tour operator for many years. We would have booked with them in September but they were fully booked until the end of the season, so we stayed elsewhere and looked enviously at Poggioluglio on our walks past. We will return in 2015 hopefully.
San Gim is a magical place and Poggioluglio will always be our first choice when visiting the area.
