The. Fact we had to pay for the heat, was a surprise.
We had a great time.
The host was so sweet. We loved him. Left us to do our thing!!
Wow! Amazing Vacation Stay!!
We spent 3 weeks in Europe from Barcelona to Cadaques to Provence to Cannes to Nice to Monaco to Rome and Castellina in Chianti. Our stay in Stella at this location was our absolute favorite. Federico was very kind kind, greeted us upon arrival, helped us with questions, and gave us suggestions around the area. We highly recommend this place and are already making our plans to return.
Lovely villa in an idyllic setting with the perfect hosts
We spent a week in the Stella villa in September and found it easily enough following directions sent by Federico. It is down an unsigned white gravel track but that shouldn’t put anyone off as it’s perfectly passable in any car. Biagio, who owns the place, was there to greet us and later Federico came to give us details regarding the facilities, the local hamlet of Fonterutoli and restaurants in Castellina where we could get a discount (both were very good). The first night Biagio and his wife invited us to a meal in the communal area along with the residents of the other 2 villas and I have to say it was the perfect start to our Tuscan holiday. With three generations of their family present, we were more than impressed with the array of food that came out, including typical Tuscan crostini, salads, a range of grilled meat from the barbecue and a homemade dessert. All washed down with as much of Biagio’s very own Chianti Classico as we could handle, not to mention a little grappa to end the night. It was a lovely way to get to know our hosts as well as our neighbours.
The villa itself was perfect for our needs, with a well equipped kitchen and decent shower, all clean and well presented. The gardens were beautifully maintained and each of the villas has its own garden area including a seating/dining area which was a pleasant place to sit out with a glass of Biagio’s wine, which was available for a very reasonable price. The infinity pool has a beautiful outlook over the Tuscan countryside towards Siena and was a place of serenity in which to relax and soak up some late summer rays.
Location wise this was pretty ideal for us - a short drive from both Florence and Siena, while also offering easy access to the Chianti towns and many of the hillside towns around. (I would recommend Montepulciano and Volterra, but there are many others to choose from.) There are of course many vineyards nearby and I just wish we could have carried more wine back with us.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this place and will definitely be looking to return soon!
Peaceful and serene stay
Off the beaten path down a long road but when you get there it is so peaceful and quiet. The views are stunning from the apartments. There is a pool, 3 apartments (1 up, 2 down) each with their own lawn area/BBQ/patio furniture. Inside the Federico apartment (ground floor), it is very spacious. Large living room and kitchen very rustic, fireplace and wifi. There is a washer outside of the apartment and plenty of room outside to hang your clothes.
Federico and his family were very gracious and had some wonderful suggestions. He made reservations for us at a few restaurants as well.
Town is about 10-15 minutes away to get groceries at COOP. And on your way there, stop at Castellina Gelato... you won't regret it!
Simply stunning! This Vil...
Simply stunning! This Villa and the location outperformed all our expectations. The views, the tranquility and the attention to detail were excellent. Some of the items in the Villa needed updating - cutlery, crockery and glasses, but otherwise it was superb!
Located in the heart of Tuscany, exploring places such as Siena, Florence, Pisa and Luca was a pleasure, despite some of the roads. The local town of Castelina is lovely, and the countryside is beautiful. One of the most relaxing holidays for quite a while, despite covering 3,000 miles.
If you want lots of entertaining, bright lights etc - this is not for you. If you want lovely people, places, food etc.. it's a great location. And the owners were so very helpful too.
"We were 5 ladies visitin...
"We were 5 ladies visiting Chianti for a relaxing break and we weren''t disappointed. Il poggino is a fabulous oasis of tranquility, set in pristine surroundings suspended above a spectacular ever changing vista. We were fortunate enough to have glorious sunny days thereby enabling full use of the infinity pool - an unexpected delight in the middle of October. We were alone at the house which may have added to our feeling of peace but the property is well laid out with several private areas for dining and lounging (we tried out most of them!) The accommodation itself is comfortable and well equipped with the exception of limited comfortable seating in the living room - we had to fight over the comfy sofa!! The use of the fireplace was an added bonus as was the provision of wood by Senior Poggino - very kind and accommodating hosts! The surrounding area is breathtaking, lovely hilltop towns with quaint streets and a plethora of stunning views -topped off naturally with Chianti Wine, great food and the best Gelato in the world - what more could you want!"
