We just returned from our second stay at Poggiacolle in 5 just months!
We visited San Gimignano in October of 2007 and couldn't wait to
return! So we planned our next trip once we returned home! We really
loved our stay in San Gimignano and especially out stay at Poggiacolle!
We were greeted by Stefano with a bottle of wine and a double kiss (the
official Italian greeting!)! Our farmhouse rooms were clean, spacious
and nicely, though simply, decorated! There were lots of warm towels,
blankets and the beds were really comfortable! We had a central kitchen
with a stove, sink, refrigerator and fireplace (with lots of firewood).
Our rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were cleaned daily. And the views! The
hill town of San Gimignano, the vineyards and the olive
groves...Awesome! Every window had a great view. We enjoyed breakfast
each morning on our first stay and found it so Italian and delicious!
Warm croissants, thick black coffee, cheese and yogurt! Yum-Yum!
Stefano was a tourist host's dream. He was ready with lots of travel
ideas and recommendations. He even arranged for a cooking class for our
group! The walled town of San Gimignano is a five minute drive or a 30
minute (beautiful) walk. The walled town has lots of great restaurants,
shops and history! There are many other exciting and beautiful things
to see within a 20 minute to 2 hour drive. One of our favorite day trips was a drive to the west coast and then north to Pisa! So beautiful! We also took a day long wine tour/class. We visited two wineries with complete tours of each winery and lunch at a local Italian home with olive oil tasting. http://www.tuscan-wine-tours.com/rebecca.htm It was great!
So for a trip to Tuscany we can fully recommend a trip to San Gimignano and a stay at Poggiacolle! It was truly wonderful!
Marcella and Stefano,

We had a wonderful time here and we really appreciated the hospitality!
Above all it was incredibly to meet Eddo and Maria Luisa who invite us into their home for the cooking lesson and dinner.

...San Gimignano is such a great place to stay. The day trips to Florence and Siena were so easy. And the pool was a hit with the kids!...
Paul & Naomi, Oxford, England
...What a place! You can go "sightseeing" right out your bedroom window. Glorious views, excellent relaxation, poolside action, endless ping pong, barbecuing, superb location, tasty local wine, what farm holiday could be better than Poggiacolle? A fun-filled week for both generations in our family...

...Stefano, you were so great to talk to and spoke English well, which was really a great help...

...do you know that the directions of where the three windows face upstairs in the tower lend themselves so wonderfully to the wind?
