“Beautiful views but some problems”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This review is for Il Ciliegio, one of the 3 flats in the building near the restaurant. We stayed for a week in October, 2013.

Pros: The rate was very reasonable, and the location was very convenient for touring Tuscany. The apartment was clean, and there is a large Coop supermarket 10 minutes away. The train to Florence from Figline Valdarno was very convenient. Views from the terrace were beautiful. The flat was furnished very nicely. Lorenzo and his family were very nice and their restaurant is top notch. We had two excellent dinners there.

Cons: Il Ciliegio is on the bottom floor of the building and built into a hill. It has a musty odor inside. All the floors are tiled and therefore you hear a lot of noise from above apartments. The mattress quality is not very good and the beds are very hard. Towels and kitchen equipment were limited. Lastly, we don't know how common it is, but the water supply for the entire town of Poggio Alla Croce was down to a trickle the last three days of our stay.

Overall, for the price, consider these apartments if you can get the top floor or if you don't mind noise from above.

Dear Larry,
thanks very much for your appreciation.
We are sorry for water problem but it's caused by a problem to the central water system of the village of Poggio alla Croce. Talking about towels and kitchen equipment you could told me and we will give you more.

Regards

Lorenzo and all Becattini's family

“Paradise in Chianti”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

person found this review helpful

Feels like home. Very friendly and helpful family. Very rare nowadays that they don´t ask money for everything. They are honest and make your feel that it is their honour that quest enjoy their stay. Danilo´s and nonna´s cooking is great: the best we enjoyed in our 2,5 months trip in Italy. Great views from the balcony towards Florence. Big apartments in good condition. Very small village in the hills near Florence. Perfect place for a relaxing holiday because of the hiking possibilities and great restaurant. Now shops anyway but we did get bread and basic need with the help of the family. If you like to see many places you need to have a car because of very limited bus connections. Anyway we managed because the owners son did pick us up from the railway station. Grazie mille, Beccatini family!

My partner and I enjoyed staying there for two weeks.
We got a 3 room apartment overlooking the valley specially to watch the sunset beautiful and relaxing
The place is good located to reach all the attractions in Chianti whether by car or by train
The owner – a real and warm Italian family is most helpful and friendly

“A charming getaway”
Reviewed March 12, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

person found this review helpful

We reciently returned from a trip to Tuscany and spent our two weeks doing run outs from Poggio Alla Croce. It is an ideal spot to get the most out of Tuscany. The accomodation was very reasonable with the off season rates and the restaurant below turned out excellent tuscan cuisine. Lorenze Becattini along with his wife and son run a well organized establishment. I peeked into the modern kitchen and it was spotless. Lorenzo will also give private cooking lessons too. From Poggio Alla Croce it is an hour and a half to Pisa by car and I recommend the train from Figline to access Florence. It takes 40 minutes and costs 18 euros for a return trip for two. The coop supermarket in Figline is 10 minutes away and has everything.
Thanks for a great holiday Lorenzo.
