We spent 9 nights in San Giovanni in Poggio during August 2012 with our three children (aged 8,10 and 12) and it is one of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had. The location is simply stunning with beautiful views of the Crete, rolling hills as far as the eye can see and in the evenings the most beautiful sunsets. At night while sitting on our sun terrace or looking out our bedroom window we could clearly see the lights of Siena twinkling in the distance and it was just magical listening to the crickets chirping in the fields around the farmhouse. The apartment is furnished to an extremely high standard with beautiful fixtures and tiling throughout. The decor is very well chosen with lots of lovely touches like the beautiful painting by Francesco's wife on the main wall and the gorgeous antique style beds and bedroom furnishings. The apartment even had a dishwasher and washing machine for us to use. The swimming pool and surroundings are beautifully clean and well kept and the short drive to town to the local supermarket meant we could stock up on food easily. Even though it is only 10 minutes drive from town, once you head out of town through the hills you're in paradise with only stunning scenery for miles and miles. Arber and Francesco opened the reception everyday and were always extremely helpful and friendly and provided us with lots of maps and brochures to ensure we made the most of our trip. Definitely a location to return to, again and again!
