Notes:
Our holiday farm "Agiturismo Le Dimore di Poggianto" is located right in the center of Tuscany, in a beautiful position on a hill on the left side of the river Arno, in front of the typical medieval town of Laterina. Set amidst gentle hills, it offers a breathtaking view that goes from the Arno river valley to the Apennines. It is an ideal starting point for trips to the most renowned cities in Tuscany and Umbria. Arezzo is just 15 km away, Siena 45 and Florence 60. San Gimignano, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi and many other art cities are also near just like Chianti, Valdichiana, Casentino and Lake Trasimeno. The holiday farm has been recently painstakingly restored and now retains all the classic architectural aspects of old Tuscan dwellings (cotto or stone floors, oak beams, bricks arches), but it was also endowed with a touch of modernity that makes the reconstruction even more fascinating. We organize cooking classes, wine tasting and many other activities.

Relaxed Family Retreat in the Heart of Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

We have just come back from a really great stay at Poggianto, a converted farmhouse in the heart of Tuscany, with our 2 kids under 5 and our parents. What a great week! We had the apartment Viola, a brand new three bedroom, three bathroom two floor apartment with a shady terrace - gloriously cool despite the 30 degree plus weather. The apartment and the property, including the pool, were absolutely spotless, and the apartment had all new fixtures. The location of the farmhouse, which requires travelling on a dirt road, allowed for absolute tranquility, and yet our children never felt uncomfortable splashing about in the huge pool. Often there were other kids to play with.

We spent every morning by the pool and every afternoon on the road visiting Siena, Florence, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Radda in Chianti and Montevarchi (including the Prada outle). All was within an hour or an hour and a half drive. Another benefit of not staying right in a popular town is that we were forced to get in the car to find a restaurant, and what gems they were as opposed to some of the more touristy places we ate at in the various towns. There is also a grocery store nearby for supplies.

Last but not least, we can't say enough about our hosts, Marina and Alessio, who made us feel welcome and had many useful tips for us. They are incredibly hard workers - we saw them spend an entire day cleaning one of the apartments after some of the guests left. They also came rushing with a first aid kid when our younges son took a tumble requiring stitches. All in all, a delightful location that I will be recommending to all who are looking to get away from it all in Tuscany.

Das schönste Agriturismo das ich kenne!

  • 5 of 5

Das Dimore di Poggianto ist bestimmt das schönste Agriturismo das ich bisher gesehen habe.

Die Betreiber Marina, Davide und Allessio kümmern sich liebevoll und aufopfernd um die Anlage und ihre Gäste.

Die Unterkünfte haben einen ungewöhnlichen hohen Standard an Ausstattung (z.B. WLAN, Geschirrspüler,...), Zustand und Sauberkeit.

Der Pool wird täglich gereinigt (darum ist dieser auch nur von 9-9 geöffnet), die Grünflächen oft gegossen und die Blumen gut gepflegt.

Auch der kleine Spielplatz ist in gutem Zustand. Am Pool gibt es viele Liegen die während unserer Anwesenheit gerade ausgetauscht wurden, obwohl sie noch gar nicht beschädigt waren.

Dank der Schilfüberdachung gibt es genug Schattenplätze.

Die Zimmer sind im typisch toskanischen Stil eingerichtet, in unserem Appartement waren die Bäder nagelneu, die Fenster haben Moskitonetze.

Im Haus sind noch die alten italienischen Steckdosen, aber es gab Adapterstecker.

Auch ein kleiner Kohlegrill ist vorhanden, der fällt aber schon fast auseinander und sollte mal ausgetauscht werden (gute Grillkohle ist übrigens in Italien fast nicht zu kriegen).

Das eigentliche Highlight ist aber die Gastfreundschaft der drei. Man hat immer ein offenes Ohr für allerlei Fragen, Probleme und Wünsche. Informationen bekommt man immer, von den Markt-Öffnungszeiten über Restaurantempfehlungen bis hin zum besten Parkplatz in den Städten.

Wir hatten 2 mal das Vergnügen Davides Kochkünste bei einem Toskanischen Dinner zu genießen. Diese traditionellen Abendessen aus Antipasti, Primo, Secondo und Grappa/Cafe kenn man ja, aber was einem da aufgetischt wird ist nicht von dieser Welt.

Mehrere Gänge feinstes italienisches Essen, die Nudeln selbst gemacht, Fleisch in Top Qualität aus der Region, Ricotta vom Nachbarbauern, und viele Feinheiten mehr.

Wir haben uns vorgenommen jeden Tag selbst zu kochen, das kann man sich eigentlich sparen. Wer einmal bei Davide war geht gerne wieder hin.

Wie fast alle Agriturismo muss man sich erstmal über mühsame Zufahrtsstraßen quälen, hier sollte man einfach ein bisschen Geduld mitbringen und die Schlaglöcher langsam umfahren.

Dann hat man aber eine traumhafte Aussicht über das Tal mit dem Arno-Fluss im Vordergrund.

Auch für Spaziergänge oder kleine Wanderungen ist das Gebiet ideal, es gibt ein paar Waldwege die auch bei sehr heißem Wetter noch einigermaßen angenehm sind.

Zusammenfassend war das sicher nicht mein letzter Aufenthalt bei Marina, Davide und Alessio

Cadre exceptionnel et une vue superbe

  • 5 of 5

Très calme. Propriétaires très acceuillants, chaleureux et disponibles. Bâtisse très jolie, refaite avec des matériaux anciens à l'identique. Très propre. Au centre des sites à visiter (Arezzo, San Giminiano, Sienne); possibilité d'aller à Firenze en train, très pratique.

The holiday farmhouse "Antiche Dimore di Poggianto" lies in a marvellous panoramic position, admist gentle hills and overlooking the natural reserve of the river Arno. Many are the paths for walking and jogging in the nature and for enjoying the tuscan countryside.

The farm is located in the municipality of Pergine Valdarno, centrally located to explore Tuscany and all its beauties. From here you can easily reach the most famous art cities such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and the territories of the Chianti, the Valdichiana and the Casentino.

Just 3 kilometers from the farm, you can find the two medieval villages of Laterina and Pergine Valdarno, with all facilities such as supermarket, gas station, bank, post office, shops and restaurants.

Nearby you can practice golf, tennis, horse riding, hiking and cycling. You can also have thermal baths or you can shopp in the outlets of the most famous Italian fashion brands.

If you want to discover the flavors of Tuscan products, you can drive along the "oil route of Pergine Valdarno" and along the "wine route of Arezzo", a journey of taste, culture and history, which stretches for more than two hundred kilometers.
