Each has been restructured in order to maintain the characteristic original appearance and style of the area, and amongst which Poggiodoro and Tobacco Loft share a tempting swimming pool in a panoramic area looking over the Sovara Valley, a garden and a wood burning oven for bread of pizza. These structures are shared among all of the guests of the hamlet.

Poggiodoro was one of the highlights of our trip through Tuscany. The young owner/architects obviously put a lot of thought in the design and reconstruction of this amazing building and made this a truly great place to stay. Well Done!

This home far exceeded our expectations. The property, location, and surroundings were beautiful. We will definitely return for another visit.
Poggiodoro is truly set in the most beautiful location! The views of the Tuscan countryside are stunning.
The house itself has a wonderful rustic feel with wood beams and stone walls as well as having elements of modern design and comfort. This all works perfectly together. The bedrooms are beautifully designed with comfortable beds and great views. The kitchen has all the mod-cons, which is perfect for having days/nights in and cooking up a tasty meal. There is a nice big table in the front room which would be perfect for family meals.
We stayed in Poggiodoro for 5 nights and loved every second. Sitting round the pool with its gorgeous uninterrupted views was totally relaxing and a wonderful experience.
Although we never met the owners, they were very communicative via email and promptly answered all questions. Giovanni met us on the first day and was around during our stay and always happy to help with anything.
The neighbors are all very friendly and helpful and will recommend things to do and see.
I couldn't recommend Poggiodoro more highly.
Nice house, great panorama view from the house and from the swimming pool. Nice owners. We had a great holiday!
Super Haus in toller Landschaft. Sehr empfehlenswert!
