Wunderschön gelegen, total Ruhe, Haus mit allem was man braucht eingerichtet, sogar kleine Italienische Expressokanne für den Gasherd. Kein Autolärm, nur das der quaken Frösche zu hören und Fasanengeschrei. Hunde erlaubt, wunderschöne Grundstück ... Leider waren wir in der Vorsaison angereist, deshalb gab es noch kein Frühstück. Supermärkte für den Einkauf in der Nähe ...

We chose the Farm Poggio, because we were looking for a place in a convenient location for visiting Tuscany and at the same time a place to relax in contact with nature ever choice proved to be more apt! The cooking course, horse riding or cycling and swimming in the pool helped to create fun and unforgettable moments. It is worth mentioning also the excellent Tuscan cuisine at the restaurant of the farm and homemade cakes that we found freshly baked in the morning for breakfast. Really recommended!
