Amazing - Just what we needed.

It is the second time we have stayed at this lovely villa Il Poggio and we can't wait to return. From moment you pass through tunnel of the Arceno estate you enter in a magic and blissful world of peace and beauty.
Surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, the arrival at end of a country road takes you to a place which is spectacular.
The villa was everything as described on the web site and even more than shown.
It is so easy to settle in to this house, like moving from home to home. It presents high quality and comfortable furniture and is perfectly equipped. Even the WIFi was working very efficiently in spite of being in the middle of the Chianti countryside.
The whole villa was spotless upon our arrival nothing was missing and everything in perfect order. Catherine warmly welcomed us and helped us to settle in quite easily. The welcome food and wine basket was lovely and allowed us to get started after a long travel (from Japan) without the need to rush to the shops straight away.
The correspondence with Anna the owner before our stay has been very helpful, smooth and efficient.
During our stay, the grounds and pool were kept very tidy and clean, the swimming pool is remarkable with fabulous views and set within the peaceful garden surrounding the villa amongst vineyards and olive groves. There you can relax, lounge around the pool, take fantastic walks along the white roads of the extensive estate of Arceno, enjoy the scenery and its breathtaking views and stop by at the Arceno vine estate for a taste of their wine.
Even at 32C degrees, our stay was comfortable and nights cooled down by the ceiling fans. The peace and quiet at the villa is wonderful, the only noise from crickets and birds, at night you can look at the stars in the moonlight.
There are so many wonderful places to visit, from Siena to Florence and Arezzo and all the lovely walled villages in between.
The location is close to San Gusme and Villa a Sesta, quaint Tuscan villages, with some of the most outstanding restaurants around.
All of the recommended restaurants that we tried, we found friendly and providing high quality food. Our favourite, although not the cheapest, is La Bottega del Trenta in Villa a Sesta, the highlight of our Italian food and wine tasting tour.
We would most certainly recommend Il Poggio to anyone wishing for a quality and luxury rental property in Tuscany (although we would like to keep this secret to ourselves).
