Villa Poggiano is a delightful place within a mile from Montepulciano, south of Siena. We stayed there for four days during our recent trip to Tuscany and wish we could stay much longer! It was a highlight of our trip and is one of the places which you do not want to leave once you are there.
It is a late-17th century villa restored by the current owners several years ago. The main building and several cottages are surrounded by an old park on one side and an olive grove on the other. The views are exceptional wherever you look. And for those who like to soak in water, there is a large pool with all the amenities.
You will enjoy a brunch-style, elaborate breakfast in the nicely decorated dining room. A selection of local cheeses and prosciutto, bread with several kinds of local fruit preserves, pastries, and yes, milk and cereal and eggs on demand. I am sure I forgot to name something. The breakfast at the Villa Poggiano was the best we had in Italy.
If you do not have definite plans for driving around, ask the owner/manager of the villa for ideas: Stefania is very friendly and helpful.
Suggestion: take a day trip to Assisi (an hour and a half drive from the villa). It is absolutely beautiful and the best maintained hilltop town we have seen – the other, true highlight of the trip.
For fine dining, try the Grotto Restaurant near Montepulciano (less than a mile from the villa). We found it to be the best in the area (including restaurants in Pienza).
