I was very selective in choosing an Agriturismo for our trip to Italy. I wanted to be far away from any major tourist stop, but close enough to Florence that we could easily visit for the day. I wanted family run, and authentic home cooking. Serena and Alessandro exceeded all expectations! From their warm welcoming when you first arrive to... More

We had a wonderful visit with Alessandro and Serena. Our boys (age 5 and 8) loved the pool and the aminals - particularly the mule Gepetto.

We were pointed towards Serenas and Alessandros farm personally from an old friend of Serena in Florence. She said this place was wonderful and beautiful, and Serenas cooking fabulous; and it really was. We relaxed at the farm and enjoyed the scenery and the activities of the animals and Alessandro.

Podere il Poggiolo is the perfect location for enjoying Tuscany with a young family. We rented a one bedroom apartment with kitchenette for a week, and were provided with a cot and highchair for our baby. The apartment was rustic but comfortable, with a good shower. The kitchenette had a fridge, gas hob and sink, and we were provided with... More

This was my first trip to Italy and both my and my husband's first stay at an agritourismo. We only stayed a few days as part of our multi-city Italian adventure, but the experience we had was amazing.

The best aspect of this Agriturismo farm is the hospitality and cooking of the hosts, Serena and Alessandro. We ended up enjoying three evening meals here, mainly because of the quality of their home-style fare, and also because this place is somewhat remote and the roads difficult to negotiate at night, so we were not eager to return after dark....

This is the perfect place to unwind in the midst of olive groves and vineyards under a gorgeous blue sky.
