Property was a little larger than we expected and provided lots of room for our party. The villa was easy to find and had views even better than we dared hope - quite stunning at all times of the day and in all directions. Amenities at the property were generally very good and only occasionally did we feel short of anything. The pool was wonderful and seemed to be cleaned early each day. We loved visiting the nearby hill towns - sometimes retracing trips of several years earlier and sometimes discovering new ones. The property was also convenient enough to easily visit Sienna and Florence - both of which draw us back on every Tuscan holiday. Montisi is a sweet little village and we used the local shop on several occasions - the ladies there were very helpful and welcoming. We went to the substantial and excellent Famila supermarket in Sinalunga for 'bigger' shops. Luigi was very welcoming on the first day but we had no recourse to bother him thereafter. Overall the best villa of our many family visits to Italy. We aim to go back soon.
We spent 5 wonderful days at Il Poggio for our New Years Eve holidays. We were 10 adults and 9 children (age from 0 to 9 years old). The Villa has been better than our expectations: well furnished, breath taking view, wonderful garden, very clean, lots of space for us and the children, well equipped (we asked for the bed and bath linen included). The owner, Luigi helped us spending our time in the best way suggesting a chef that prepared two great dinners for all of us and that we enjoyed in our place with the kids free to play.Unfortunately we did not enjoy the pool as it was winter but we enjoyed the warmth and the atmosphere of the fire place. Best New Years Eve holidays ever. We cannot wait to be back at Il Poggio in summer!!!
Montisi and San Giovanni d’Asso are a very old village, rich in medieval castles, characterized by the typical landscapes of the country south of Siena, with steep slopes alternating with vast woodland areas and cultivated fields. It is situated in the geographical area known as the Crete Senesi (Siennese Clays) which includes the nearby villages of Buonconvento, Asciano, Monteroni d’Arbia and Rapolano and is characterized by clay hills and the so-called “biancane” which confer to the Crete Senesi the typical cuneiform reliefs. The area of the Crete Senesi represents an uncontaminated oasis with suggestive and ever-changing landscapes, in which the territory and environment have maintained, over the years, an integrity and purity that have led San Giovanni d’Asso to excel in the production of the famous truffles, which grow in woodland only under particular environmental conditions. From San Giovanni d’Asso it is easy to travel, thanks to the good road system, to interesting localities in the region such as Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, the villages of Chianti, Florence, but also to Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Cortona, Perugia, Arezzo.
The cities of Siena, Perugia and Arezzo are all less than an hour's drive from the villa
