About the property

Sleeps up to 5 guests in stylish interiors. Large swimming pool and gardens

Located on the upper floor, this apartment with independent entrance can easily sleep 5 guests in 2 bedrooms. The property is accessed via an imposing staircase from the outside and comprises a stylishly furnished open plan lounge / kitchen (with satellite tv), a double bedroom with additional single bed, a twin bedroom (that can be turned into a double) and a large shower room. A shaded, private outdoor area is available outside by the pool for al-fresco dining. If required, air-conditioning is available through the apartment (payable locally).

The apartment is set within the beautifully restored "Podere Romina".

“Romina is Tuscany”. In these three words all the soul of this special property can be described. Romina is an ancient farmhouse with swimming pool, perfectly set at the egde of a green hill (”poggio” in Italian) just a few minutes drive away from the pictoresque Cortona. Accessed via a typical alley bordered by cypresses and offering a beautiful swimming pool, Romina is divided into 5 stylish indipendent apartments able to sleep between 3 and 10 people each. Enjoy the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside, or soak up in the sun by the pool: the authentic charme of Tuscany will accompany you for all your holiday.

All the apartments have been carefully restored by the owners, Romina and Roberta, are fully air-conditioned for additional comfort, have wi-fi internet and are provided with a private outdoor area for unforgettable al-fresco dining while admiring the views of the gentle hills and vineyards (a barbeque is also available).

The owners run a nearby farm, producing excellent wine, fruit, olive oil, marmelade and are always on hand should the clients require anything: traditional tuscan dinners, wine tasting, etc. For this purpose they have specially designated an area in the former barn equipped with a large kitchen and tables that can be rented (small charge payable locally) to accommodate large groups for special events or family reunions.

Outside, the large manicured gardens with flowers and scented lavender, are equipped with a generously sized swimming pool (12m x 6m) with sunbeds and shades: a perfect place for relaxing under the Tuscan sun or for a nice refreshing swim. The swimming pool is open from the 15th of April until the 15th of October.

Bicycles are also available for the guests should they decide to explore the surrounding area.

Beautiful, Peaceful, Charming

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home away from home. Fantastic place to stay while touring the Tuscany region. We loved nearby Cortona and driving around to the other hillside towns but also loved the quiet down time around the pool. Highly recommend!

Review for stay from 12 August 2017 to 19 August 2017

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a lovely setting with fantastic 360 views. The apartment was a really good size, spacious, clean and in very good condition. The grounds and pool were excellent with plenty of space for other familys staying at the same time. Very safe place for children. There is a very useful games room which has Table tennis and other games. Great for children. There were bikes and its a great place to cycle however they were pretty old and were not all working. There is WIFFI which worked very well and although there is air conditioning it is expensive at 15 Euros a day as an additional charge. I would recommend this property to others. Worth a stay and plenty to do in the surrounding area.

  • 5 of 5

Eine fantastisch gelegene Anlage oben auf einem Hügel mit grandioser Aussicht, einer traumhaften mit Pinien bepflanzten Auffahrt, sehr gepflegtem Pool und schönem Garten. Die Appartments sind mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail geschmack- und stilvoll eingerichtet worden und unsere Familie sowie Gäste haben sich alle sehr wohl gefühlt. Die beiden Vermieterinnen Romina und Roberta, sowie die für die Gäste zuständige Betreuerin Martina, waren sehr zuvorkommend, hatten immer ein offenes Ohr für unsere Fragen, und haben uns zusammen mit ihrem Team ein tolles Geburtstagsdinner mit toskanischen Spezialitäten unter freiem Himmel für unsere 36-köpfige Gesellschaft gezaubert. Hervorragend! Ein toskanischer Traum hat sich für uns erfüllt!

It’s a stunning property with a wonderful view, big pool and a lovingly manicured garden. The apartments have been elegantly refurbished with a keen eye for detail and we felt very much at home.

Romina and Roberta who own the property, as well as English speaking Martina, were extremely helpful in answering our many questions and helping out where they could. They also prepared and served us a wonderful and lavish 4-course open air birthday dinner with Tuscan delicacies for our party of 36 people. Amazing! If you’re after a Tuscan dream, don’t go past this wonderful property!

Beautiful farmhouse apartment in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully restored and set in spacious grounds. The pool was lovely, with plenty of loungers and a hammock. We made good use of the ping pong table in the barn (which could do with a couple of new bats) and we also borrowed the bikes. The nearby train track wasn't a problem - the trains weren't too frequent and they didn't disturb us. Romina and Roberta were friendly and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was clean and spacious with comfortable beds and plenty of towels. A few more cups and glasses would have been helpful for our family of five. We were glad of the mosquito nets over the windows in the evening. The area is very remote but the beautiful old towns of Cortona, Castiglione del Lago and Montepulciano were around 30 minutes drive away.

Review for stay from 28 August 2016 to 04 September 2016

  • 5 of 5

Poggio Gabbiano was even more beautiful than we imagined. The surrounding area was stunning and peaceful. We were worried that the nearby train track would be a problem but we hardly noticed the trains at all. Romina and Roberta were friendly and welcoming. The apartment was clean and spacious. As we were a family of five, a few more cups and glasses would have been useful, however there were plenty of towels provided and some toiletries too. The pool was lovely and my husband made good use of one of the bikes. We were also very pleased to find that there was a ping pong table and some games in the barn too. We had a fantastic holiday and really didn't want to leave!

Located in one of the most unspoilt areas of Tuscany, with rolling hills and beautiful landscapes, our property is perfectly set just a short drive away from the famous Cortona. The property is surrounded by vineyards and cypresses, in a truly magnificent natural environment: the ideal place to relax and to unwind from the daily routine. The central location allows easy excursions to the most famous cities of Tuscany, Umbria and Latium (such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Rome) as well as to the Trasimeno Lake (with swimming and sunbathing opportunities) and to the thermal spas. Additionally, for the lovers of shopping, Tuscany offers excellent outlets with designer clothes at unbeatable rates.
