Tuscany ★ ★ ★ ★
Our villa was very rustic but charming . the views were beautiful. In the early morning mist overlooking the pool to the hills it was breathtaking. The owner was a very pleasant chap . He handed in a lovely basket of fruit and veg which we appreciated. Wish the pool had been a couple of degrees warmer but it was the start of September ( we still used it and once you were in it was ok the hard part was getting in lol ) . The near by town Castelnuovo was only a 10/15min drive down the valley and had a supermarket shops cafes etc. It also has a train station which was handy for some of our day trips. Overall we had a lovely holiday.

Beautiful Tuscan villa ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A lovely, typical Tuscan villa with beautiful grounds, views and a fabulous swimming pool. It was very clean and well looked after and the owner was welcoming and keen to tell us about the local area. Would definitely recommend!

4 stars Awesome
Very nice holiday home. Big enough for two families. Fully equipped. Nice and helpful owner. A lot of privacy. Large swimming pool with beautiful views. Beautiful surroundings, between the mountains and a river near the house, nice trips to different towns and nature.

5 stars . A classic Italian house, not luxury but nice and clean, and absolutely functional.
We went as a whole family, grandchildren, children and grandparents and we had been looking forward to the this stay for almost a year. And by far, we were not disappointed. Everything was as described and no photoshopping! Great parking lot, green fields, colorful flowers, a little meadow with trees and a lovely swimming pool with a fantastic view towards the hill sides on the other side of the valley. The pool was a great pleasure for everyone, it’s a must! WI-FI & TV network worked perfectly so we took the time to watch some of the stages in Tour de France. Also, we challenged ourselves to make pizza in the old stone oven, it worked and the pizzas were amazing. A shout out to the host, who on the second day of our stay, delivered a colorful and tasteful box vegetables and herbs from his own garden. So nice. Big thanks to Mr. Lenzi & wife. Bottom line, it was an amazing holiday and we would love to return one day and we won’t hesitate to recommend this to others. Oh yeah, the day we left, we went up to a local winery Cartina Bravi in Camporgiano, a few kilometers north of Poggio, here we bought some Sangiovese and Pinot Nero wines, should we return one day this will be the first thing to do.. you know, local wine goes with local food...
In the end, an little burp ... get some new kitchen knives or sharpen them... ;0)

A beautiful place perfect for recreation and inspiration in the name of great hospitality. 5 stars
If you really want to experience Tuscan lifestyle, this is the place. The house is lovingly furnished, the view of the valley is uniquely beautiful and the swimming pool with an extraordinary view is magical. The terraces invite you to linger, in the stone oven succeeds the real Italian pizza and if you can sometimes disconnect from the beautiful estate in the countryside, then it is not far to the sea or to Lucca and Florenz.Die family of the homeowner gave us from the first minute feeling of being in good hands and wanting to stay forever ... a wonderful place for both children and adults !!!
A little gem ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Gorgeous place. Clean, with all the amenities needed and very private. The owners brough a crate of fresh veg and herbs which was lovely. We managed to use it all up. An amazing place

HIT response: Just to advise future guests that there are shopping facilities in Camporgiano too which is less than a 5minute drive away.
|5 stars - my favourite place in Italy
We will be staying for 3 weeks in April - but it will be our 4th trip there. The owners, Iliario and Maria, are so friendly and helpful. It is a true Agritursimo - You have to provide all your food and toiletries and make your own bed. The house is clean and comfortable. Groceries are easily purchased at CONAD in Castelnuovo - about 20 min away. There is a washer, but no dryer. So peaceful to watch the little train go 'toot toot' over the bridge; listen to the Cuckoo bird; the pealing of the church bells; the voices of the farmers. There is a Market Day every Thursday in Castelnuovo. Lucca, Florence, Pisa are each about 1 hr away.
Loved it! 5 Stars:
