“A definite highlight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

We experienced an outstanding week at Poggio del Drago. Everything from our room, breakfast, and the host Emanuele was excellent. The property, which includes a pool and comfortable sun beds, is very clean, peaceful and relaxing. All of the modern ammenities set in an old farmhouse made for a comfortable stay. All of the guests had complimentary unlimited use of the espresso machine, and were given space in a fridge to store extra food or beverages. Emanuele had great suggestions for dinner and sightseeing spots. Many of the main tourist spots are within an hours drive, but we discovered several local sights with no crowds that have the same experiences as the main tourist attractions. We would recommend visiting the medieval village of Anghiari and Il Boro, and Castelo di Meleto in Gaiole in Chianti for wine tasting. We have loved everything about our stay, and would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed in Poggio del Drago for 5 nights (july 2012). It was perfect! A fantastic environment, rooms are very nice equiped, breakfast is very good. And what a sight from the pool! Emanuele is a perfect host: friendly, helpful, cheerful (we won't forget his laugh). From this b&b you can easily reach the whole region of Arezzo, it's an excellent location. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely few nights at Poggio del Drago, and as other reviewers have said, Emanuele is just such a brilliant host! He's a bundle of energy and is always there with a smile and a laugh :) I don't speak any Italian but still loved meeting him! The B&B is super clean, the pool is gorgeous and our room was very stylishly decorated with a lovely comfortable bed and great shower! The only thing I would say is that, as the rooms are all off the main kitchen/breakfast area, they don't feel very private and you can hear everything from the breakfast area - so you'll need earplugs if you're a light sleeper and would like a lie in! We don't normally stay at B&Bs so this may be the norm with this type of accommodation, and the other positives about this place more than make up for it, but if you want a romantic break it might be worth considering this factor!

Poggio del Drago is located in a beautiful area maintained by a very good host, emanuele that does his best to make you feel at home. There is a nice swimming pool, room are very tasteful and equipped with all necessary luxury. In the morning we were positively surprised by a nice breakfast. Our children enjoyed the stay as much as we did. Truly recommended!

Highly recommended. It's an excellent base for exploring the hillside towns in Tuscany. The accommodations are excellent, astute attention to the smallest details but not uptight. And the pool is spectacular.
