“Relaxing and peaceful - great place to chill out”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

Poggio Primo is working farm producing grapes and olives for oil and other products. It located outside of Castiglion Fibocchi which is about 15km from Arezzo - we stayed for a week in 2008 (my review is rather late). It isn't overly easy to find, particularly if arriving late in the day and it is in a rural area.

A very tranquil and serene environment. The grounds are large and there is plenty of entertainment to be found there ranging from children's playground, bocce pitch, ping pong area, swimming pool, picnic tables etc. Walking routes in the area too.

Even though our stay was in the second week of June it wasn't warm enough for swimming. We ventured into the pool only once but the water was extremely cold.

We stayed in a studio and whilst it was comfortable it would have benefitted from having a small sofa to relax on - it was spacious enough. We had to lie on our beds to watch TV. Kitchen area was smallish but sufficient for our needs. Even though the outside area is large there aren't individual private outdoor areas for each apartment.

There is a massive mulberry tree near the covered outdoor seating area which was full of fruit at the time of our visit and my young son enjoyed his first taste of mulberries and again many times during our stay.

Our studio was next the bar/breakfast room so there was some noise from people coming and going - even though I thought only one or two couples were there the same time as us. Worth asking for a room away from it if you are a light sleeper or affected by noise.

I had a frightening encounter with a boar (looking for mulberries perhaps) when I was taking the rubbish out at dusk. Luckily it was as frightened by my scream as I was of it and it ran away - as did I!

Having your own transport is necessary to stay here considering its location.
