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 retired 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 enviroment with its immense history, culture and traditions.

Perfect Way to Experience Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
This beautiful stone home and well tended grounds provided the perfect way to experience Tuscany for our family of four. Everything went smoothly with our reservation and it was very easy to work with Roberto and Marina. Barbara is a real delight and the perfect property manager. The welcome basket full of food, as well as a well stocked refrigerator, and wine and olive oil from the estate for the week was fantastic!!! It was so nice to just settle into the house and have enough to eat for dinner, breakfast, and beyond. The wine was really good! We did not have any issues with the internet, and with two teenagers, the Wi-Fi was used frequently. The guide book in the house was very helpful. The house was very clean and even had a mid-week touch up by Sherrie. The gardener did a great job taking care of the expansive lawn and beautiful flowers. We made side trips to Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Pienza, Montalcino, Assisi, and Perugia. I think our favorite day was the day we walked through the vineyard to San Gusme', spent some refreshing hours in the pool with the beautiful view, had a late lunch in Castelnuovo Berardenga at La Locanda di Tommaso, enjoyed an evening conversation with Barbara, and ate our last dinner on the terrace under the stars. Each morning we enjoyed waking up to the sunlight peeking through the east facing master bedroom and then later sipping coffee out on the terrace with the birds singing all around.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this overwhelming review! For us it was a pleasure to host Sherilyn and her wonderful family from Oregon, during their journey through Italy. They seem to have very much enjoyed their week in the Chianti and we are so pleased to know their appreciation of the professionalism and dedication of Barbara, Sherie and Lorenzo who take care of the house and the garden with great love. We hope to have them back very soon. Marina and Roberto.

From the first email, through our final parting glance as we drove away, this has been the most magical experience ever. The property is so beautiful, the location picture-postcard perfect.... Our arrival was guided by Barbara H. who couldn't have been sweeter. The gift basket upon our arrival was such a blessing, and so well stocked! She answered questions, gave us terrific recommendations, and provided a detailed background on the property. Being located literally in the heart of Tuscany allowed us to take a number of very easy day-trips to Arezzo, Montepulciano, Assisi, Siena, Florence and Pisa. One of the best parts was being able to sit on the fabulous veranda at night and view the stars while having a late night nosh after many of our travels. We dined a couple of evenings in the local village of Castelnuovo Beradegna, even enjoying one of their festival nights!

If I were to make one tiny improvement, it would be to add a couple more screens to the windows to catch a cross breeze in the evening in the main kitchen/sitting room upstairs. I would gladly stay here again, and will certainly recommend this property to anyone who may be considering this kind of vacation.

This Villa Delivers!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 30-May-2013
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2013
Our time at Villa Poggio was truly special. Barbara, the manager, took very good care of us and did her best to give us an unforgettable experience. The internet is still a little spotty, but she has been working with the internet provider diligently to make things work. The villa was immaculate. The landscaping is very pictuesque and will only improve as it gets warmer.

The villa itself has been completely renovated and is appointed very nicely. Hot water was never in short supply even with 6 people. We made our own breakfasts and often shopped at the local markets during the day as we toured and prepared dinner with our "finds". We found the restaurants in San Guzme and Castelnuovo Berardenga very helpful and accommodating for our daughter ,who has a gluten allergy. We especially enjoyed the cuisine at La Locanda di Tommaso. The cell phone that was provided very helpful for restaurant reservations. The house wine and olive oil that was provided is very good.

During our 2 weeks, we were able to tour many interesting small hilltop towns as well as visiting Florence and Siena. The winery on the estate, Venuta di Arceno, has a nice guide and tasting room-just be sure to call before you go.

The walk into San Guzme through the vineyards is a memorable experience.

We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review.
We had the pleasure to host Mary, family and friends that found out just how special this little corner of Tuscany is, even in early spring ! We are also happy to know that the precious support and hospitality of Barbara is always welcome and appreciated by our guests.

Great place for families

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. The home was comfortable and was well stocked and set up for a family. The owners were welcoming and very helpful. They provided food for the first day, so we did not have to figure out shopping and cooking after a long day of travel.

We were a family of 7 with grandparents, parents and 3 children. There was something for everyone in the area. We loved being able to walk thru the vineyards to nearby San Guzme. We enjoyed going to tuscany towns of Voltaire, Mountiriggioni, Siena, and San Gimignano. The countryside is beautiful and the property is quiet, secluded and lovely. We all had a lovely time.
Owner's Response: Judith and family made the most of their two weeks stay, enjoying the many delights in Tuscany and traveling north up to Venice!
Certainly they had a long journey to get from Oregon to Italy and for us was a pleasure to do everything possible to make them feel at home.
Thank you so much , Marina and Roberto

Wonderful vacation in the Chianti region

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 06-Jan-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2012
We resided at il Poggio for a week in July 2012 and had a wonderful time. We are a family of 5 and we had more that enough space for all of us. The site is splendid, located in a vineyard in the Chianti region, close to Siena and plenty of other villages that deserve to be visited (San Gimignano, Volterra, Montepulciano, Montalcino).

After a long day of sightseeing, we appreciated the calm of the house, its pool that was refreshing in the hot weather and the lovely terrace where we could enjoy a glass or two of Chianti and a delicious meal.

The house is well equiped with everything we needed to cook nice meals and the basket of food and wine that was waiting for us at our arrival was more that welcome. People over there took very good care of us. The owners provided us with a cell phone and they, as Barbara, were always available to answer any of our questions.

We really enjoyed every aspect of our stay at il Poggio and would highly recommend it to anyome looking for a spacious, quiet and well located place to stayt in the Chianti region.
Owner's Response:  Thank you very much for the lovely and unexpected review! It was a pleasure to host Nancy , Sylvain and family from Quebec, Canada and it is a great encouragement to start the new year with their positive feedback.
Our intent is to always do our best in welcoming travelers at Il Poggio hoping to leave a lasting and unforgettable memory. Marina e Roberto
