About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 1 Kitchen, 1 Big Living Room


'Set in its own grounds, with access via a private gate, the Villa, which resembles a small castle, has a private swimming pool, and dramatic views over the beautiful Val di Pavone - the Valley of the Peacock River - and of the majestic Rocca di Sillana, an Etruscan/Roman fortress, modified in the 16th century by the Florentine Medici family.

The Villa Rocca itself is on two floors: the Ground floor, consisting of the Kitchen, with 'fridge, gas hob, electric oven, and dishwasher, microwave oven and dining area; and the adjacent Living Room with seating for 8 and having a large open Tuscan fireplace and a bathroom with shower, bidet, toilet and a washing machine On the First floor is a landing, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, giving accommodation for up to 6 adults and 2 children. On the top of the house is a roof terrace bordered by the battlements.

Outside there is the swimming pool ,6mt x12mt (high of water 1,60 mt), plus a covered terrace, private gardens and a convenient barbecue for outside living and dining.

It is situated 2km from the small village of Montecastelli, 8km from Pomarance with its shops, bars and supermarket, 20km from Colle val d'Elsa, 36km from Etruscan Volterra, 40km from San Gimignano with its medieval towers, 60km from Siena and 80km from the Renaissance wonders of Florence. The seaside, with its Blue Riband beaches and its many fish restaurants, is about 70km distant, so the Villa Rocca is ideally situated for all cultural activities as well as for relaxation and self-indulgence.'

Beautiful house with great views

  • 5 of 5

The photographs of Il Poggi don't really do it justice. The house itself is large with great rooms the grounds are spacious and home to some amazing wildflowers. The views from the house, the grounds and the pool are spectacular and far reaching . . . to the sea on a good day. The pool is well maintained and has the best of the views. Be slightly prepared for a bumpy drive to the property from Montecastelli but it is more than worth it. Great communication from the owner and Nedda, who we met when we arrived at the property. Highly recommended,

A beautiful secluded spot with breaktaking views over the Tuscan countryside.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay here at I Poggi for a week. The property is extremely secluded down quite a long track is and is perfect for those wanting complete peace and quiet. The views really are incredible and the pool is absolutely stunning. The pool is a short walk down a path from the house and is situated with fantastic views all around and is positioned perfectly for all-day sun and a lovely place to be for sunset drinks round the pool. It was kept very clean during our stay. Nice areas at the front and back of the house to sit outside. We had wonderful weather and so ate all our meals outside. There is a barbecue too which we used. Nedda and Matteo met us on our first evening when we arrived to show us to the property as it is quite hard to find! They were very welcoming and helped us the next day when we had a problem with the electricity - got it sorted out for us quickly. Not a place if you want lively nightlife or quick access into a town but for us it was a perfect get-away to relax and recharge the batteries. We just couldn't stop oohing and aahing at the views all around - very beautiful. It is also near enough to lots of places to head out for day trips - we visited Florence, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano during our stay. A week just wasn't long enough and no one wanted to leave!

Peaceful with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful as no near neighbours. Stunning views across the valley to the castle. Nedda and her friends made us very welcome even inviting us to a secret restaurant to enjoy local cuisine. Perfect for a family wanting peace and quiet. Small restaurant in the nearby town of Montecastelli where the staff are friendly and the food was good. Supermarket closes on Sunday and is 20 minutes away so need to stock up beforehand

A peaceful retreat in the stunning Peacock Valley

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at I Poggi in July 2014 with our teenage children and had a wonderful time. The villa was spacious and clean but furnishings and equipment a little dated. However, this has not stopped us from booking in 2015.

The private swimming pool is a good size, well maintained and with views over the stunning Peacock Valley. This is a perfect place for those seeking privacy and just outside Montecastelli so a car is essential. We went to Florence by train from Poggibonsi and explored the local area. We found the Manager and family very friendly and extremely helpful.

If arriving later on a Saturday, it maybe worth considering that most supermarkets and local shops close on Sundays so stock up with provisions en route or arrive earlier in the day.

Tuscany Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 3 week stay in the I Poggi villa. When you enter the gate to the premisses for the first time you just cannot believe the beautiful view over the green valley. The house is situated centrally on a hill such that you have full privacy, it is just you and the incredible landscape. The very large swimming pool is situated a terras downhill, great place for children where we enjoyed long sunset evenings. The utilisation of the house is at high standard, the house is being looked after very well. The family that manage the rental live at 5 kilometers, Nedda, Matteo and Gionatan and have been so kind to us! Also we have spent time in Pisa, Florence, beautiful villages and the beach all at short drive distance. There are great possibilities for long walks in the nature. A small paradise in Tuscany we will recommend to our friends and come back to.

If you dream to be the lord of your own Toscana Hill

  • 5 of 5

As many of us, you want to visit one of the most beautiful place in the world: Toscana, but before booking, please answer these questions:

- Are you looking for a quiet place without neighbor constraint?

- Are you waiting for an amazing sunset every day?

- Are you expecting a wonderful view from your own private swimming pool with a glass of Chianti or a Spritz?

If you answer YES, you should test this Villa in Montecastelli.

We were 7 (2 adults and 5 children) and we combined both visits (Sienna, Firenze, Volterra, Colle di Val d’Esla, San Gimignano …) and some rest around the swimming pool.

As explained with previous comments, please do not go there with your Ferrari…the last kilometer is based on a stony road, even if we did not have to face any problem with our Espace Renault!

In addition, for any problem or question, Gionatan and Nedda (I should say Doctor Nedda :-) ) are always available to help you.

So I would strongly recommend this house for a family like us.
