Beautiful property, terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Poggio Rosemary for ten days and had one of the most fabulous vacations of our lives. The villa itself is very elegant but comfortable, totally immaculate with beautifully restored rooms. Location is terrific--the villa is located in a secluded countryside setting so you feel like you are really seeing Tuscany, but you can get to Florence in about half an hour, We made day trips to San Gimignano and Volterra while we were there too. Fully appointed kitchen in case you feel like cooking. We didn't get to use the pool since we were there in October but it looked really nice and the grounds were beautifully kept with great views. The owner Egle was super nice and was willing to go the extra mile to make us feel comfortable without being intrusive. Lovely place--can't wait to go back!!!

Beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 8 days last year and we would like to return there. We found a beautiful location in a wonderful place! The owners have been very special with us. We went in Florence, in San Gimignano, in Lucca and we discovered a wonderful world very close to the villa. Great experience to suggest it to everybody!
