Wonderful Family Vacation
Wonderful Family Vacation
We had a wonderful family vacation in this peaceful villa. It was perfect for two families of 4 wth teenage girls. (We had two bedrooms to spare). The house, pool and grounds were well maintained and the location perfectly private. We really enjoyed our nightly amazing 4 course meals prepared by two lovely tuscan ladies...it was such a great alternative to cooking or going out for dinner. The villa is in a great location for day trips to Siena ( 20 min) , Arezzo, Firenze, Montepulciano, Volterra (1.25 hours) , Orvieto .. the list could go on. We enjoyed nightly after dinner walks to the tiny village of Badia a Ruoti with the long unpaved drive lit by the fireflies and stars. We were met when we arrived by a very gracious and helpful Senora Christina. We would recommend this villa to family and friends.

A wonderful New Year
A wonderful New Year
Warm cozy evenings by the fireside, after challenging walks in the woods full of well-being. After the magnificent dinners of Chianina beef, a relaxing day at the spa Rapolano (hot / cold water and mud with massage). Fantastic start to the year! p.s.: exquisite hospitality of the owners!

About: I am Marilia, I am from Sicily but I lived 11 years in Tuscany which I fell in love with. I am an anthropologist at the moment very busy with a crazy triplet of 2 years old kids... I love travel and meet new people and exchange ideas, habits, and food...
The Poggiolo has a special value in my life. The local people call it the good witches wood, the wood surrounding it. I and my family love that place but since we cannot live there the entire year we decided to rent it.
