The Villa Poggiano may have been the highlight of a great 8 day vacation in Italy! We researched this and other sites to find a charming country villa in Tuscany and hit the jackpot. It is a former 17th century villa located just a stone's throw from the beautiful old town of Montepulciano, but with a feeling that you are out in the country.
After driving up a long approach lined with stately trees, we came upon this beautiful building with carefully manicured grounds. It is located in the center of gourgeus olive and peach orchards, with a great view of the tuscan countryside. It is so private that you will be provided with your own personal access device - the property is approached through private gates. While our room in the villa was excellent (beamed ceilings, separate elegant sitting area), the real highlight was the friendliness and attentiveness of Stephania (the manager) and Angela. The villa has more of a quaint, personal "B&B" feeling than a formal hotel. We were greeted with a complimentary spumante cocktail and a very helpful overview about local sites and restaurants. The breakfast in a beautiful dining area is included and, while we did not take advantage this time, the hotel has a swimming pool area patterned after a Roman villa, and provides free bicycles to explore the private trails on the villa grounds.
Usually when I return to a vacation area I like to try different accommodations; not this time - when we return to Tuscany (and we certainly will), we will only stay at the Villa Poggiano.
