Poggibonsi is an old Italian town in the north of the Siena province, dating back to the 11th century. The town is centrally located for exploration of the beautiful area of Tuscany, only 41km from Florence and 80km from Pisa, and forms the main centre of the Val d’Elsa Valley. In keeping with the beautiful rural surroundings, there are numerous converted farmhouses dotted across the landscape, offering an excellent accommodation option for families visiting the area to enjoy a self-catering holiday.

Things to do in Poggibonsi, Italy

Although Poggibonsi is now known as one of the main industrial centres of the Siena region, the town retains a picturesque facade, appealing to visitors who come to view the magnificent examples of Florentine architecture in the old town. The town itself is home to numerous examples of beautiful Italian architecture and frescoes, including three churches, a convent and a fortress, all dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries.

The small nature of the town lends itself to a walking tour, or visitors may choose to hire a bike to explore the old town. The three main churches in the town – Collegiate Church, San Lorenzo Church and Saint Lucchese Church – are a particular draw, and all are within easy reach of each other.

The Palazzo Pretorio, which dates back to the 13th century, was once the seat of local government, but is now home to a small paleontological museum, which is likely to be of interest to the children. The Santuario del Romituzzo and its neighbouring bell tower are also popular with visitors, along with the Fairies’ Fountain and unfinished fortress designed by Giuliano de Sangallo.

Review for stay from 16 September 2017 to 16 September 2017

5 of 5
We had the most incredible vacation at this villa. Sabrina was wonderful from start to finish-- welcoming us with a lovely basket of goodies, bringing us cake and wine throughout our stay, and making the check-in and check-out process a breeze. The house itself is wonderful exactly as shown in photos. The yard/garden is well-manicured and vibrant. The house is clean with good sized bedrooms. We traveled with two young children and Sabrina provided a playhouse and slide for the yard-- such a treat! The property is totally child-friendly. Sabrina lives in an attached villa with her family, but you rarely see or hear them. It was quite private and remote, and perfect for our family. We would absolutely recommend this villa and would love to come back again!

Semplicemente fantastico

5 of 5
La proprietà è bellissima, perfetta e razionale negli interni, con divisione zona notte e giorno: piano di sopra zona notte (3 camere da letto e 2 bagni) e sotto bellissima zona giorno con salotto e pranzo (con bellissimo camino) cucina e altro bagno. Noi eravamo 2 famiglie con bambini e siamo stati splendidamente. Tutta la casa ha finestre sull' incantevole bosco e sui colli circostanti. Il salotto ha due enormi finestre da cui si gode un panorama rilassante. Gli interni sono curatissimi e nel più puro stile toscano, dal cotto agli armadi. La proprietà si trova in posizione perfetta per visitare praticamente tutta la Toscana: Firenze e Siena a mezz'ora ma anche Volterra, San Gimignano, Pienza e altre bellezze toscane visitabili tranquillamente in giornata. La zona in cui si trova la casa è di per sé un gioiello, e il Chianti è a disposizione in qualunque direzione si vada. Davvero un soggiorno splendido.
