“A truly wonderful Tuscan experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Of all of our Italian stays, by far we felt most at home at Poggio Ascuitto. Eva and Massimo's little slice of heaven in Chianti exceeded all our expectations of a true Tuscan experience. Their warmth as hosts and the way in which they embraced us into their family is not the type of experience you will get from a hotel. Not to be forgotten was their food, wine and friendly animals. We will be back at any opportunity.

Room Tip: La Torre was incredibly spacious

My partner and I visited Poggio Asciutto as part of our trip to Italy in August 2012. We can both honestly say that it was the most memorable, most enjoyable, most relaxing part of our trip. We happened upon Poggio Asciutto by luck – we cold called several places and they happened to have one room available and we jumped on it. The website is not fancy but the place is paradise on earth.


The amazing Eva picked us up from the bus stop in Greve in Chianti (public bus, about 3 Euros each way from Florence) and from that moment, we knew she was a special person. When we arrived, she showed us to our room. It was a beautiful, serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of Florence. From our door, we could see green rolling hills and grape vines for miles. The washroom was spotless and the room was clean and tastefully decorated. On our little terrace, we enjoyed a bottle of wine and enjoyed some quiet alone time outdoors – something that turned out to be a rarity on our little trip. Even though the place was fully booked when we were there, we felt like we had the place to ourselves.



Some of the highlights of our trip included dining with Eva, horseback riding through the country side, swimming in the pool and going on several wine tastings. We both highly recommend this place for couples, singles and families. Eva and her husband are both just really nice people that I think everyone will immediately take a liking to, just as we did. The spirit that they have created is a welcoming, relaxed getaway without any pretension. And oh, how could I not mention the FOOD! Wow! Everything that we ate was fresh, local and even from their own farm. The quince jam was SO delicious, as was the morning spread of breads, cornetti, ham, eggs, and the most perfect cappuccino that you will ever have. Dinner was fantastic too –a 4 or 5 course meal, all local and made with love by Eva, including the olive oil and wine which are organic and from their farm.



If we had more time, we would have visited the surrounding areas but even with just one night ( two days), it was the most perfect part of our entire trip. I regret not stocking up on more food when we left but we had to catch the bus so only got two bottles of wine. What I wouldn’t do for some of that jam, olive oil, limoncello and pepperoncini – all made with care and love by Eva.


We highly recommend this place.

Location unbeatable - central to everything with rolling hill views! Gorgeous vista! Family owners could not be kinder, nor more hospitable, apartment was perfect. We will recommend this place to all travelling to Tuscany. Private, amazing apartment - wait till you open the curtains in the morning, and first class hospitality and cooking classes.

Have dinner there with Eva and her daughter Olivia! So cute! Oh, and my gosh - their wine - beautiful! Total sanctuary filled with so much warmth. This place is wonderfully special - owners go above and beyond to look after you.

My husband and I have just checked out of Poggio Asciutto and have checked into a hotel in Rome and I want to go back to Poggio Asciutto!!!!! it was amazing, from Eva and her hospitality to the views every second, to the beautiful wineries it was all so good! we spent 5 nights there and can highly recommend it. we had the pleasure of dining and tasting the wines of the estate which are really good, also we got to to go horse riding through the vineyards which although i was apprehensive about.... was just the best and is worth the nerves as Eva and her horses are very special.Hoping to get back there on day!

My partner and I stayed at Poggio Asciutto for 9 nights last month. It was everything that we had hoped for and more.

Our hosts Eva, Massimo and their gorgeous daughter Olivia were extremely friendly and welcoming (and spoke excellent English). They could not do enough for us.

Our apartment was rustic yet still modern and very comfortable (and very clean). It was cool and we were able to sleep comfortably at night. The kitchenette was well equipped. The table and chairs at our door, overlooking the vineyards and olive grove, gave us a quiet and beautiful place to enjoy a red wine at the end of the day. Poggio Asciutto’s own wine, by the way, is very nice and doesn’t seem to give you a hangover!

Eva provided us with helpful suggestions of what we could do and where the good places were to eat. The meals at night in the restaurant at Poggio Asciutto, cooked by Eva, were one of the highlights of our stay. The food was authentic and delicious! Sharing a meal and conversation with the other guests from around the world was a lot of fun. Eva’s dogs, Greta and Xenia, would also join in… creating even more fun! We also ate at Massimo’s restaurant about 10km from Poggio Asciutto. The food was superb there too (as was the view of the lights of Florence). Cooking class with Eva was another highlight. We helped prepare the evening meal for 14 guests! We learned lots and laughed lots.

We can highly recommend going horse riding with Eva. The horses are well trained and very kind to beginner riders. It was a unique way to see the countryside and wildlife. Our only regret is that we did not make the time to go riding more often during our stay.

Poggio Asciutto is conveniently located near to Greve in Chianti, which has a good range of shops including a supermarket, and provides easy access to many small towns. Greve is only an hour by bus from Florence and 90 mins from Pisa airport. It is also only an hour from Barberino Designer Outlet mall. The surrounding vineyards, olive groves and Poggio Ascuitto’s swimming pool provided the perfect environment to relax.

We were very sad to leave Poggio Asciutto and could have stayed there longer than 9 nights.

Our family of four stayed one night with Eva & Massimo. We had 2 connected bedrooms which we asked for. We did not know that included a nice country kitchen and sitting area downstairs, a nice bonus. Another bonus was the pool on a hot Tuscan afternoon. Eva was a great host and will suggest all types of activities. The wine tour she suggested was the highlight of our 2 week vacation and our grown kids loved it. Eva offers a Tuscan dinner for a reasonable price. Don't miss it! It was so nice talking to fellow travelers from around the world. This is the way travel ought to be.

We stayed at Poggio Asciutto at Easter 2012 and had looked forward to this stay with great anticipation, based on friends' recommendations. We (two couples) shared a two bedded apartment. There was a small kitchen/dining space downstairs and the bedrooms and ensuites were upstairs, at the back of the house. We arrived on a very cold, rainy day and it rained for our whole three day stay. When we complained about the cold we were told brusquely by Eva that they "couldn't help the weather" but we felt they certainly could help the lack of heating. The heating (or rather, the lack of it) was centrally controlled and at no time was it warm enough for us to be comfortable in the apartment. Being so cold clouds one's impressions of a place. At 200 euros a night we felt we did not receive value for money. Massimo had just opened a restaurant nearby but we never formally met him and even though we had breakfast and one dinner in the agriturismo dining room, we did not experience the hospitality other contributors have. There was ample food, but the quality was ordinary.
With the hundreds of rentals available in Chianti this is not the place to stay in cold weather.

Stayed April 2012, traveled with friends
