We have stayed at Il Pozzo twice before, the last time eight years ago when our eldest child was one. We returned now that our children are old enough to appreciate the beauty of Tuscany. As always, we stayed in 'Il Camino' and as always, Alessandro could not do more to make sure we enjoyed our stay - including booking tables for us at the fabulous Casa Chianti trattoria just 1km further along the road.
This was our first stay in the summer holiday period and the apartments were all full which meant the pool area was much more busy than on previous trips but we were glad to see they had invested in much more loungers and shade pergolas. The large size of the pool meant that plenty people could enjoy it simultaneously. Given the very hot and dry summer the gardens looked beautiful and dinner on the terrace overlooking the vineyards with San Gimignano in the distance, whilst drinking the wines produced from those grapes by the Gori family simply cannot be beaten.
Florence is a easy 40 minute drive straight to the free parking at Piazzale Michelangelo and San Gimignano is a short hop way. Pisa is 70 mins trip - mostly motorway. Just make sure you plan your journeys/SatNav routes in advance to avoid entering ZTLs and incurring €100 fines.
We will be back for our fourth visit!More
