“Great for a weekend getaway in the Tuscan countryside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I stayed at il Pozzeto for to spend a weekend in Tuscany with friends. I arrived quite late in the evening and you couldn't really tell what the surrounding area looked like due to the darkness. When I woke up the first morning I was pleasantly surprised with breathtaking views of the countryside with the sun rising up over the hills in the distance and low hanging clouds creating a picture perfect scene. Steve and Jennifer are excellent hosts and are willing to go out of their way to make you feel at home. They gave a brief tour of the villa and told some of the history behind the place. Each of the apartments are very nicely furnished, and my room up in the 'tower' was perfect. Unfortunately I didn't get to stay long enough to try out the brick pizza oven by the pool area, but what I hear from my friends is the pizza's they made turned out great.

For those who plan on traveling to the villa by car, then I highly recommend using the GPS coordinates from their website. Most of our GPS's could not locate the address because you are REALLY in the countryside. But this sort of isolation makes it a perfect escape from the city, and allows you to relax and take in the beauty of the surroundings there. I would definitely like to go back again for another weekend getaway!

Thank you John! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Il Pozzeto. We are 7 km from the center of Anghiari, but we feel that the views are more than worth the effort. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we love the images you posted. Steve

My wife and I celebrated my 40th Birthday at Il Pozzeto for 9 days in October 2012. We had an excellent time thanks to the planning of the owners Steve and Jennifer. They were very helpful setting us up with a driver to take us on a tour of the Chianti wine region. I would also recommend the private olive oil tour that they set up for us. Every restaurant they suggested was also excellent.

The Villa was very roomy, quiet, comfortable and CLEAN. The views at sunrise were amazing. On the days that we didn't go sightseeing we did a lot of walking through the country side looking at the beautiful scenery. There is so much to do and see at the villa you wouldn't need to leave. I wish it would have been a little warmer so we could have used the pool.... but you can't change the weather! There is an outdoor wood fired pizza oven close to the pool area. It was a lot of fun making our own pizzas.

The breakfasts each day were also very good. Each day Jennifer made a different type of quiche and croissants along with fresh fruits and cereal.

We would recommend Il Pozzeto to anyone. Hopefully we can come back soon!

It was the best Birthday EVER!

Room Tip: All the rooms were perfect.

We were looking for a relaxing weekend and found the PERFECT place at Il Pozzeto. It's located on a hilltop with fabulous views and only minutes from the center of Anghiari, a quaint medieval walled town which we enjoyed touring. The apartments in the villa are spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. We are a family of 6 (our kids are 16, 12, 10, and 5) and had plenty of room - and we even got to bring our large dog! The owners are very gracious and attentive without being intrusive. They made up a basket of items for us to use down at the grill since we brought plenty of groceries. They also made sure I was able to bake a special treat for my husband's birthday :) Jennifer makes the BEST breakfast- make sure you get to try her quiche!

We had a fabulous visit to Il Pozzeto! It was exactly what we envisioned Tuscany to be like. The owners were amazing! They made our stay very easy by picking us at the airport and directing us to all the greatest local wineries and restaurants. The town of Anghiari was so beautiful. Just hanging out drinking coffee in the main square was a true Italian experience- we would recommend our stay to anyone. This would be a fabulous place for a wedding or family reunion!

Room Tip: All the rooms were amazing! The details were breathtaking!

We were there for a family reunion for a short week.Il Pozzeto il a very unique and isolated villa on the top of a hill with a 360 view around. The place is beautifull, the host are discrete and very helpfull. The price is fair considering its confort, the swimming pool and has a barbecue that could accomodated everybody (20 plus). I did not put an excellent only because I always expect better but it may deserve it.
