We looked for a property that had Tuscan charm and Poggio Bello did not disappoint us. The villa comfortably accommodated 4 adults having 2 ensuited bedrooms that were located at opposite ends of the house. The kitchen was very well equipped and all appliances worked well.
The views of the countryside were relaxing and the setting was tranquil.
The town of Camucia was a 12 km drive with all the amenities we required such as a large Co-op with extended hours, restaurants, caffes, a weekly Thursday market, train station and, many other shops and services.
Day trips by car to Assisi, Orvieto and, Civetta, were easily made. Train connections to Florence were also good.
Most helpful was Simonetta and her family. The family was very friendly and helped us with any inquiries or requests we had. The property was well managed and we would recommend it to others without hesitation.
Our experience with this vacation property and with its owners was fantastic.
I would not change a single thing.
The property was beautiful, the location perfect and the ambience over the top!
The nearby hill towns offer so much to see and if you want to stay home there's no better place.
We were in Poggiobello 4 weeks in May and it was wonderful stay. Excellent and cozy accommodation with very friendly attitude of owners Simonetta and Pepe. You can do many trips in the circle not more than 100 km (Firenze, Siena, Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino, ...). Excellent conditions for bicycling (not difficult routes) - 4 mountain bikes available free. Large pool close to the olive garden, quiet surroundings, relax. Visit vineyards of Villa Loggia and taste their delicious wines.
I hope that we will spend more weeks there in the future.

A group of four of us stayed here and we absolutely loved the home and the owners! It was pure bliss in the country with postcard like views, the drive to Cortona is close and we lived the town. Poggiobello was very clean, spacious and charming with it's Tuscan style. My wife took a cooking class from owner and loved it! Would go back to again and again. Location is also close enogh if you want to drive to some wine regions in addition to other sights of Tuscany.
Our stay at the Poggiobello has been fantastic. This has been our favorite place during our trip in Italy. The villa is big, the pool deliciously quiet, the view on the thousand sunflowers fantastic, the owners are lovely people, the location ideal for daytrips, the place is perfect for family with kids. I'm telling you : THIS IS PARADISE.
