“Perfect!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

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!

We just came back from one week san giovanni in poggio with our 6 month old baby girl. Our expectations were quite high when reading all the rave reviews, but they're all true...
Location: stunning, on top of a hill in the crete senesi offering magnificent views of the surroundings. But also not too far from monteroni (10min) so supermarket etc is in easy reach.
House: beautifully renovated, with taste and quality materials, very nice pool.
The hosts (Francesco & Arber) made everyone feel right at home, always ready to help, super-friendly and really "sincere" personal service. When we arrived everything was setup for our baby, they even put baby-proof bottled water ready for us without we ever mentioned or asked this...6* service

Basicly at the end of the week, we were sad we hadn't booked longer... But it will for sure not be the last visit to this superb landhouse.

My family and I spent one fantastic week here; the location is outstanding, the pool and the facilities very nice (honestly, to be in a pool with that view is provocatively nice). The two hosts that we met, Francesco and Arber, were very helpful and made us feel welcome all way through.
We shall be back here, no doubt!

Thanks, Hans

We - couple of both 30 years - were delighted by this beautiful Agriturismo (so well renovated and perfectly maintained!). We really loved staying at our little paradise, which was in fact a large apartment with a living room, bathroom and a charming Tuscan kitchen (very well equipped).
Obviously most of all we enjoyed the direct surroundings to the Resort and everything around it. The swimming pool is large and clean – but the view beats all.

Besides the wonderful atmosphere, the friendly and superb advices of its owner and staff pleased us a lot. Thank you once again Francesco and Arber for a wonderful stay!

If you're looking for a true Tuscan experience we highly recommend this place!

We stayed at San Giovanni in Poggio the last week of June with our 2 small children. Arber and Francesco's service was very good. The view is amazing and we never before woke up with the sound of sheep bells. The house is very beautiful, large rooms and very clean. We would highly recommend this place for people that are fond of a wonderful, clean, amazing, quiet place from which to explore the incredible surroundings. However, if you are with children like we were, make sure you have some means of entertainment, because it is not really the best place for that.

Room Tip: We stayed at Merrigio, which had its own terrace overlooking the quiet valley. Amazing!
