"Just a short note to thank you for your hospitality and to say how much we enjoyed staying in La Rosa.
Hope to see you some time next year.

"Mum and I just wanted to thank you for helping to make our holiday so special.
We had a wonderful time and Poggio d’Oro is definitely our favourite place in Tuscany.
Many thanks for being so welcoming."

submitted by Susan Mac Donald, Edinburgh, Scotland

"I am just writing to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our holiday at Poggio d’Oro at the end of July. Our first visit to Italy was a very memorable one, not just for the superb sights that Tuscany has to offer, but also because of the lovely “Chianti” apartment, its wonderful views and the warm welcome we received.
A week was not long enough to see and do all we would have liked, but that is a good reason to return for another visit.
Many thanks for a superb holiday and kind regards to your family and yourself.
Grazie di tutto!"

"Caro Marco,
sono stato nel Vostro stupendo Poggio (Villa le Rondini) con mia moglie e mia figlia in Settembre.
Le mando queste linee perché mi sembra giusto che Lei sappia quanto piacere ci ha prodotto. Siamo rimasti veramente incantati dei giorni passati lì, e molto del nostro benessere è dovuto al meraviglioso intorno che la Vostra azienda è in condizione di brindare. La “nostra” villa era una vera meraviglia e l’unico che spero, in qualche momento futuro, è ritornarci e poter goderla più a lungo. Naturalmente aggiungo al paraggio d’insogno la vostra accurata gentilezza.
Un caro saluto dalla nostra lontana Argentina e spero di rivederla al più presto possibile."

submitted by Dr. Alessandro Fonzi, Buenos Aires, Argentina

"Il y a une semaine nous partions, le coeur lourd, de Poggio d'Oro. Richard et moi tenons à vous remercier pour l'accueil chaleureux et tous les bons conseils que vous nous avez donnés tout au cours de notre séjour chez vous. Nous avons grandement apprécié l'Italie et particulièrement le Chianti. Soyez assuré que nous n'aurons que des bons mots à dire à nos amis concernant Poggio d'Oro.
Merci encore et au plaisir de vous revoir peut-être un de ces jours,"

Thank you also for sorting out the fine for us, we do appreciate that you solved the problem.
We will certainly be recommending to our friends traveling to Italy, that they spend some time in one of your villas in Poggio D’Oro.
Very best wishes."

"We look back on a very pleasant two week stay again, last May.
We did enjoy the large apartment Duchessina 1, what is indeed very comfortable for two couples with each there own bathroom.
And the view from the large terrace is splendid. We spend a lot of time on the terrace, eating and just sitting and reading.
And your hospitality was again very high, you are available for every question, interested in what we are planned to do and has very useful suggestions. The trip to Arezzo and Cortona on your suggestion was indeed very nice!
So we should not wait many years again to visit Poggio D'Oro once more, I hope we meet you sooner!"

Reviews


"Very friendly personnel, gives you all the details you need for the surrounding area. I would definately recommend it to a friend."

submitted by Lia Petrinoli, Athens, Greece

"The property was fabulous, and the manager very obliging, hospitable and friendly, we are very happy with the accommodation.
Gorgeous location, close to Florence and other Tuscan villages. Our cottage was very well appointed, and in a very scenic and private location."

submitted by Jennifer Keating, Upwey, Victoria 3158, Australia

"Very nice, calm, beautiful place to stay with very charming staff.
Unique place to stay in the middle of the Chianti."

submitted by Sandra ter Bals, 7312 GH Apeldoorn, Netherlands

"Wonderful stay, stunning views, close to most Tuscany attractions, spacious apartment, beautifully decorated & equipped in all necessary stuff, very clean. Pleasant swimming pool with views over Chianti hills.
Management very helpful, polite and smiling.
I definitely recommend Tuscany holidays here!"

submitted by Anna Drozdowska, Warszawa, Poland

"We found the management to be very positive, friendly, and helpful.
We have been to Tuscany on two previous occasions and found Poggio d'Oro to be the best facility we have stayed in. the location also suited us very well.
one of the deciding factors when we booked was the positive reviews which I found to be very accurate
We would absolutely recommend it to our friends."

submitted by Gary Snyder, Lebanon, OR, United States


"Owner walked to meet us as we drove in the gates and was very welcoming, apartment was excellent, beyond expectations, view was breathtaking and area was very quiet, just as we wanted.
Only problem was that we were sorry to leave - an extra week would have been wonderful.........
Ideal location for visiting Firenze and Siena. Quiet location but near all amenities.
If I would recommend it to my friends? I would get out the photos, give them Marco's email address (and the website of course) and urge them to book their next vacation there."

submitted by Judith van Manen, Eemnes, Netherlands

"Many thanks to the staff for their flexibility and useful information.
The location and the view are marvellous, the staff is very friendly, the apartments are pleasant."

submitted by Edit Horvath, Budapest, Hungary

"Marco Bianchini is the perfect host. You really feel welcome when you arrive and within 30 minutes he had given us all info needed for our stay, and more.
At Poggio d'Oro you get the comfort of always knowing that if you need anything for your stay or any info on Tuscany, it is always there for you through the Management, you don't always get that feeling in Italy....
Perfect place right in the middle of Chianti. Very comfortable and beautiful views."

submitted by Erik Andersson, Stockholm, Sweden

"The property and management exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay there again.
The location was accessible to many towns and cities in Tuscany. The directions to attractions provided by the management were precise and helpful, and the buildings and grounds were well kept, clean and comfortable."

submitted by Juergen Hauschildt, Canada

"Marco was very helpful, his parking tips for Firenze and Siena were spot on. Extremely helpful and friendly person, his hospitality is absolutely above anything we have experienced so far."

submitted by Mario Osenk, Australia

"We enjoyed our stay very much, hope to return someday, and will recommend Poggio d'Oro to friends -- in fact, have done so already. The setting is wonderful, and in particular we had a stunning view from our elevated terrace. Marco could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We were apprehensive about bugs and snakes, but a tiny lizard was the only 'critter' we saw. Oh, and some fireflies after dark.
Poggio d'Oro was the ideal Tuscan holiday spot for us, a cosy place to relax after pounding the pavement and standing in museum lines in Rome. Even our teenage girls were happy there. Smack in the middle of Chianti country, it consists of several villas/apartments in a peaceful rural setting amid rolling hills and luxuriant foliage. We had a spectacular view of the hills from our terrace. Good location (halfway between Firenze and Siena, 6 km off the autostrade), comfortable apartment with full kitchen and nice bedrooms, refreshing swimming pool, signs posted to guide the way in, helpful and friendly staff. We felt we got excellent value for our vacation dollars!
By the way, a rental car is essential. Be prepared for some extended driving on twisty roads if you want to visit some hill towns or wineries."

submitted by Mark Adams, United States

"We did arrive early and were unable to get into the property until a little later but we didn't have to wait as long as the stated check in time. This didn't cause us a problem as we took the time to do our shopping. The manager was very nice and apologised for the fact that we couldn't get in early. This in no way caused any problems.
We loved the site and the views were stunning. All the staff were extremely polite and very helpful. In fact the service was exceptional!!!
We would certainly recommend the site to friends. The site was quiet, with beautiful views and within easy driving distance of the obvious tourist attractions as well as some beautiful medieval villages which were recommended to us by the staff at Poggio d'Oro. We would certainly stay there again when visiting that part of Italy (that is of course if they will have us). A really lovely holiday!!!!"

submitted by John

"Excellent with a very warm welcome, I cannot imagine coming to Tuscany and staying anywhere other than Poggio d'Oro. It was much more than we expected and the most wonderful experience.
Included the fact that it is centrally located making it very easy to get anywhere in Tuscany....
The most perfect spot for anyone who wants to be surrounded by the beauty of Tuscany, the serenity of the hills and valleys, a peaceful walk through vineyards and countryside, a villa that is equipped and modern while still retaining a rustic and gracious flavour and management (Thank you Marco) who was an excellent host dedicated to making his guests feel at home! It exceeded all of our expectations and we cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Tuscany."

submitted by Diana Hayes, United States

"Een parel in de Chianti. Op een oude wijgaard (een deel is nog in gebruik) is zeer verspreid een zestal huizen gebouwd (totaal zo'n twintig appartementen). Het mooie grote zwembad en de tennisbaan en vooral het bij alle huisjes aanwezige fenomenale uitzicht van ruim 10 km over één van de mooiste dalen van de Chianti maken de droom compleet. De dienstverlening door de familie Bianchini (gastheer Marco spreekt vloeiend Engels, Duits en Frans) is vriendelijk, gastvrij en uiterst behulpzaam. Een adres om steeds weer naar terug te gaan!"

submitted by Jos & Brigitte Hessels

"Wonderful place, and extremely friendly and helpful people. This was a top notch place, highly recommended."

submitted by Jesper

"Sehr gepflegtes Anwesen mitten in den Weinbergen mit einem fantastischen Panoramablick über die Hügel des Chianti. Die Zufahrt ist eine Sackgasse, somit gibt es keinen störenden Straßenlärm - ideal für denjenigen, der Ruhe sucht.
Die Ferienwohnung entsprach genau der Beschreibung im Internet und war sehr sauber, erforderliche Küchengeräte waren vorhanden.
Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend.
Als Kulturliebhaber kommt man durch die Nähe zu Florenz und Siena auf seine Kosten."

submitted by Gabriele Schossig

"Sehr angenehme Unterkunft, Sehr angenehmer Gastgeber, der mit Informationen und Hilfestellungen nicht spart.
Die Wohnung (Fontana) ist auch mitten im August angenehm kühl (da haben wir schon Anderes erlebt).
Parken am abgesperrten Gelände ist ideal.
Ein Fahrzeug braucht man allerdings unbedingt, selbst um vor und vor allem nach dem Essen zumindest nach S.Donato zu kommen.
Auch für Kinder sehr geeignet, da sich aufgrund mehrerer Wohnungen immer Kinder zum Spielen finden, es aber trotzdem aufgrund der Weitläufigkeit nicht zu laut wird.
In Summe sehr empfehlenswert."
