“San Giovanni: planning to return”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Two of us spent 9 nine days in San Giovanni in May 2013. The setting is gorgeous; the apartment beautifully designed and appointed. Francesco is a wonderful host; friendly, helpful, with lots of local information to hand. Monteroni d' Arbia is a small village with friendly people, an excellent restaurant and a good supermarket. It makes a perfect place from which to explore Tuscany, or just rest in the country to the gentle sounds of sheep and pheasants in the surrounding fields.

San Giovanni is the most beautiful place - it is an exquisitely restored old podere with Eco considerations. It is set on a hill top so you gain both from wonderful views and from the breeze. The pool is sublime ... An infinity pool in the countryside. There are great local shops including a butcher for delicious Chianina meat and BBQs outside and everything that you need in the kitchen. Everything was modern and clean with power showers. Francesco and Frederico looked after us very well - nothing was too much trouble. They also gave us some fantastic local information about where to visit. I recommend this wholeheartedly .... I can't wait to return

Our family (my husband, I and our 2 children) recently visited Tuscany and chose San Giovanni in Poggio for accommodation based on the brilliant reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! Apart from the magnificent setting and incredible views, the accommodation itself was spotless and really beautiful. We were there during a heatwave and although there is no air conditioning, the inside of our apartment was cool all the time. The kids absolutely loved the swimming pool. Francesco is a brilliant host - as preparation for our trip I was in contact with him several times via email, and he always responded promptly and with great advise. Once there both Francesco, and Frederico spend time to ensure that we were comfortable and that we had information to make the most of our stay in the area. Fransesco even alerted us to time of eclipse of the moon to ensure that we did not miss it, surprised us with fresh figs from his garden, and when we accidentally broke a wine glass replaced it without charging damages (which most other places would do) - small touches that made a huge difference and did not go unnoticed! We also found the Italian people in the village close by (where we used the supermarket, post office and pharmacy) to be really friendly and helpful. Well done to Francesco and Frederico - we experienced Italian hospitality at its best. Thank you for making this an unforgettable holiday!

We are a couple with a 2-year's kid and spent a wonderful week in the apartment Meriggio. It was a perfect place, very well equipped (with mosquito nets at all windows, a washing machine, private terrace with long chairs, small bed for my son, a baby-chair, etc.), nothing was missing. The place is gorgeous and perfect for a family, calm, with a safe swimming pool. At our arrival, we received a very warmful welcome from Francesco and Frederico and a lot of advice on places of interest around the place (Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Siena, etc.) They are both always there when needed. During our stay, my son add some health problems, Francesco immediately offered us his help and gave us the right indications. I would highly recommend this place, we will certainly go back in the future.

My wife and I stayed for the first week of July 2013 in San Giovanni in Poggio. My attention was first drawn to the place through its presence on the internet. For those who have found it this way and studied its very promising website, our recommandation can be expressed very concisely: Those guys deliver everything they claim.

The full and breathtaking view from the hill comes at a certain cost, however: It may be a little windy. During the first week of July 2013, the weather changed from slightly chilly to the heat that we came for. And then the mosquitoes and the flies came as well. San Giovanni in Poggio lies at some distance to the nearest farm and the nearest free water surface, so the number of insects is probably not more than you should be prepared for. We were unprepared, but you do not need to be...

We came for the quietness and the beautiful surroundings, and we got what we came for. But if you need any kind of advice on how to spend your time in the heart of Tuscany, Francesco and Federico are fully prepared to help you.

We spent a week here with our family from Scotland at the end of June 2013 and had a perfect holiday. The apartments and outside spaces have been beautifully renovated and are immaculate. The 360 degree views of le Crete hills are absolutely stunning and the pool is a delight to cool down in after a day visiting the local Tuscan towns. We got married in Siena town hall and had a small reception back at San Giovanni and it was a dream come true set in a fabulous romantic setting! Our hosts, Francesco and Frederico were very helpful indeed and we couldn't recommend San Giovanni more highly. We hope one day to return!

Four of us spent a wonderful 7 days at San Giovanni in Poggio with breathtaking views on Tuscan hills and Sienna lights at midnight. The place is very peaceful, quiet and comfortable. And only the sound of sheep's bells breaks the quietness! The hosts- Francesco and his manager Federico- are very friendly and helpful and we what to thank them for our perfect vacations!
