Why Roberto Terrone chose Castelnuovo Berardenga

Lovers of the countryside , my wife and I for many years were looking for a special place for a vacation home. In 1999 we had the good fortune to find and purchase La Casa del Poggio, this corner of paradise where we spend most of our spare time.

Hoping to retire there someday, now we enjoy sharing with our guests what we consider a marvelous treat. The beautiful Villa Arceno wine and olive oil Estate is the setting of our villa where we feel at home, in peace and relaxation but also surrounded by the amazing Tuscan environment with its immense history, culture and traditions.

True Tuscany Experience

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Villa, great location. If you want to experience the true Tuscany this is the place to stay. Barbara welcomed us in the true Italian style even though we where a hour late, but with great humour. Villa well stocked to get you started for the first days or more. Owners Roberto and Marina tried many times to contact us upon our arrival to make sure everything was good but we where so busy exploring the region it took a few days to contact. Lovely experience, would recommend this villa to everyone.

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough appropriate words to describe how wonderful was our holiday in Casa del Poggio!

We spent 2 perfect weeks relaxing, sightseeing and above all appreciating cooking and eating in the excellent kitchen and magnificent terrace.

We selected Casa del Poggio because we wanted 3 bedrooms and baths, plenty of indoor and outdoor space for 3 couples, proximity to Siena and Florence and, we were very impressed with the positive reviews.

The bedrooms were roomy, all with independent external access, comfortable beds, and plenty of closet space.

The bathrooms were all very clean and updated.

The house itself is situated in the spectacular vineyards and olive groves of Villa Arceno Estate and we especially loved the privacy, the views and gorgeous starry skies that will take your breath away!

Marina, Roberto and manager Barbara are extraordinary hosts, always available and never intrusive, they go above and beyond to make you feel at home and helpful with all our requests: they will suggest the best to see, which restaurant to go, which chef to hire, which winery to visit and help with reservations

The housekeeper Sheri keeps the property immaculate and we very much appreciated the mid week cleaning and fresh towels.

Not to mention the bountiful welcome basket, wine and olive oil.. what a treat!

There are small beautiful medieval villages and lovely welcoming people close by, San Gusmè,Villa a Sesta, Montebenicchi with a number of outstanding restaurants.

The town of Castelnuovo Berardenga, is five minutes driving distance with grocery stores, pharmacy, bakeries, butchers, wineries, restaurants etc..

Thanks to the invaluable advice received before our arrival, we didn't miss Siena, Arezzo, Cortona,

Florence, Montalcino and San Gimignano without stress and long queues....

We will strongly recommend Casa del Poggio and definitely be back!

Frances, Mike & friends

Great property, location and amenities.

  • 4 of 5

A very good family property or for a couple of families. The location is great to access all surrounding areas and the small town of San Gusme is a short walk to spend an afternoon.

Lovely Villa with access to a pool. The location is great for day trips to many cities such as Siena, or Florence. Barbara (house manager) is absolutely fantastic and makes your stay comfortable. She is also available to help with any needs.

Amazing property, great location and lovely host

  • 5 of 5

The house is set in the wine region of Tuscany and close to both Siena and Florence, so for us was an ideal location. We were there with young kids so the garden was great, the swimming pool always available and the kids toys and baby cot an amazing help.

The house is a good size, contains everything needed for three families (and kids) and has plenty of outdoor space.

Marina was very welcoming on arrival and the welcoming gifts almost too much (though the wine was gladly received)!!!

Highest recommendation.
