Fantastic stay at Santa Maria a Poneta -- we highly recommend

This is one of two properties owned by Ricardo and Susanna. We stayed at Santa Maria a Poneta, in a two-bedroom apartment in the old farmhouse. The apartment was spacious and appointed with lovely and usable antiques, a nicely equipped kitchen, and the swimming pool and patio are to die for. We swam every day in the pool even though in May it was still a bit cool in the evenings. This is also an excellent location. Siena 25 minutes away, lovely Barberino Val d'Elsa five minutes away, and the weekly market in nearby Poggibonsi was a delight with its food and vegetables. Property is super clean with a full time caretaker, and the landscaping is luscious. Riccardo and Susanna are very very helpful and their English is plenty adequate for communication. We highly recommend this property. Their second property, Paganello, we did not see the rooms, but I would recommend Santa Maria a Poneta over Il Paganello. The farmhouse is completely renovated to a high standard.
