"Podere Poggiolo" is located on a green Tuscan hill it just "resting" and which is therefore the name. It 'just outside the medieval village of Trequanda, a pretty village that faces the Crete Senesi and from which you can admire Siena in the distance. Of this place, my parents - both non-Tuscan - fell in love 35 years ago and for that transformed this old farmhouse in the countryside of our childhood home. Today none of us lives more in Tuscany, but Podere Poggiolo continues to be a meeting point and, at the same time has become a "holiday home".
And 'open to all those who want to stay in a place where you can breathe a story, to those who are not afraid to leave home computers and television in order to enjoy the company of those who have next, listen to the music of the evening crickets and enchanted under the sky of Trequanda, nowhere else so clear and full of stars.
It 'was recently renovated, but remained intact the typical warmth of the Tuscan farmhouse, with its wooden beams and the old terracotta everywhere. The family furniture and objects that make up the furniture, tell the rest of the history of this place.
There is a green space with plants and flowers and a nice table to sit outside, where a barbecue to prepare a beautiful Chianina to enjoy with good wine and our own oil.
For everyone, from June to September it is running the pool and your 4-legged friends are absolutely welcome!

Fantastic rural Tuscan farmhouse
We (a family of 2 adults, 2 kids (6 and 4 years old)) have just come back from a wonderful stay (~10 days) at Podere Poggiolo in late July-early August where we have the most fantastic time. The property was lovely; clean and very nicely presented as you would expect, but full of character and a clearly loved previous home. Charming and personal furnishing throughout the house made it feel like coming to stay with friends rather than a holiday home. The house has clearly been attentively renovated and refurbished with modern touches that our kids loved - the glass-floored mezzanine and spiral staircase, the illuminated spa-bath - and plenty of space. Only a couple of separate bedrooms, but several additional pull-out beds/sofa beds.
The outside space was fantastic too. Sharing the garden with another family staying in the smaller unit was fun. We overlapped with two other families who also had kids. Lovely big garden to play around in (although it was generally very hot). And the pool! What a necessary feature in the 40C midday heat, ever day.
And the location couldn't be beaten. Trequanda, and short stroll away, is a lovely small town/village with just the right amount of amenities - a handful of restaurants with a range of styles and characters, a central old square with cafes. Montisi, 5 mins drive, is also hugely characterful medieval village with loads of character. Many of the major regional sites - Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, Montipulciano, etc, etc, are and easy drive within 1 hour through the most fantastic scenery.
Overall, if we could go back tomorrow, we would. Loved it! Thank you for enabling a wonderful family holiday.
Schönes Haus mit viel Charme und Gemütlichkeit
Das Haus hat viel Charme und man spürt die private Atmosphäre.
Margherita legt sehr viel Wert auf Wohlfühlen, das Haus ist gut gepflegt, der Außenbereich ebenfalls.
Unser zusätzliches Glück war, dass die Anliegerwohnung zu der Zeit frei war und wir das ganze Gelände (sehr gepflegt) zur alleinigen Verfügung hatten.
Im Ort (fußläufig) iner Supermarkt und 2 gute Restaurants.
Das Umland (Peinza, Siena, Montepulciano, San Giovanni d'Asso etc.) ist mit das schönste was die Toskana zu bieten hat.
Un sogno fantastico!!!
Un intero podere tutto per noi, curato nei minimi dettagli, pulito confortevole e... semplicemente stupendo! In una posizione strategica: nel mezzo delle colline senesi, equidistante da tutti i meravigliosi luoghi che volevamo visitare. Un paradiso anche per il palato. L'ospitalità è ottima e Margherita è super simpatica e disponibile: ci ha dato un sacco di dritte! Grazie davvero di cuore e speriamo di tornare presto!
Partire e trovare una "vera" casa ...
Le foto non rendono giustizia al clima che si respira in questo podere, l'aria di una vera casa vissuta, ricca di sensazioni positive. L'impressione immediata di farne parte, di essere della famiglia. Il giardino ci ha regalato ore di ozio rilassante e bagni in piscina. Le aspettative sono state di gran lunga superate, molto positiva la posizione che rende accessibile in poco tempo a tutti i più bei borghi del posto. Contiamo di tornare presto e lo consiglio a chi vuole fare della propria vacanza un momento per ritrovarsi, per ritrovare ritmi e sensazioni accantonati nella fretta della quotidianità.
Ci sono stata per la prima volta nel 2003, quando gli interni erano molto diversi.
La ristrutturazione del 2007 lo ha reso ancora più accogliente, pur lasciando intatto il fascino che solo i vecchi casali sanno emanare.
E’ un luogo che è uno stato d’animo.
E’ il piacere di stare insieme, le chiacchiere sotto un cielo stellato come non ci si ricorda più, le partite infinite a Monopoly, lo scoprire che si vive benissimo (e, anzi, meglio) senza tv e senza orologi.
Una pausa, da tutto e da tutti, per stare in compagnia di se stessi e godere della compagnia di chi ci è accanto.
From Trequanda you can admire the beautiful landscape of the Sienese hills, contemplating Siena in the distance and then reach it easily through the magnificent 'Via Delle Crete'. The sight that greets visitors at this juncture is touching and rejoins the man to nature through a landscape framed by harmonious hills and trails of cypresses. Siena, Arezzo, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Montichiello are just some of the wonderful places easily reached from Trequanda, the area also has plenty of medieval villages to discover. Spa, food and wine tours, tastings of wines and oils, cheeses and other food products are among the activities that give you power in this relaxing holiday.
