The building is over 300 years old and had been completely renovated and restored by its owners who reside, year round, at the property.The property is surrounded by over 1500 olive trees and has a beautiful, 3 ha vineyard. Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and precious “Chianti Classic” Wines are produced on the farm and can be purchased directly from the owners.Since 2010 Poggetto turned to Green energy: a large solar plant is supplying electricity to the property. A large swimming-pool (size: 14 x 6 meters - 45' x 18 ') with deck chairs, umbrellas and a coffee bar, flowers around and with a beautiful panoramic view.Lunch or dinner is available for our guests upon request.During the high and medium season (April through September), apartments are rented by week.

For the convenience to all, arrival and departures during the high and medium season is on Saturday.Poggetto is located close to the historical cities of Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra.

We arrived late to this spot. Our GpS was very good, there is no way we would have found it by ourselves. The owner didn't want us to arrive late but she did wait up is to arrive.
The room we got was the oldest for sure. It definitely needs to be up dated but it was comfortable. Again bring food as the shop is about 30 minutes away.
It is a perfect location to travel to many places, such as Florence,Sienna and Piza but it is also nice to relax here for the day.
They have a lovely swimming pool and fantastic wine and olive oil.
A car is a must to get to this location along with up to date GPS.

Heart of Toscana like a post card, in the middle of vine yards, olive trees and cypress. At 4km from the village, the place is very quiet, with several and various areas where you can rest or eat in privacy. Fabrizzio gives lot of good advices for visiting the region, chosing restaurant or buying local products. His wine and olive oil are exceptional ! We had a very pleasant stay in Il Poggetto.

The location of Pogetto was great for exploring the nearby countryside and towns and had a fantastic view, however, we were very disappointed in the accommodation. We found it warn, tired and very pricey for what we got. We also found our introduction to our kitchen - in a cupboard absurd. Also be warned to carefully read the contract they send you so as not to get caught out by the additional mandatory cleaning charge, though not sure what they were cleaning exactly as they certainly missed several cobwebs. The lady owner was not very welcoming. We would not recommend this place to others.

We loved staying at Poggetto and we have become regular guests.
The road getting here is a bit "rough", but that was expected as most roads area are like this.
The hospitality was extraordinary.

The rooms - we stayed in different apartments, are clean and exactly what we expected for an agriturismo.

The views are to dream of and the pool is a cold/warm enough to make it fun after a day or morning visiting other areas.

Highly recommend Poggetto. BUT don't expect a 5 star luxury hotel. This is a rustic place that makes you forget the crazy busy world we live in.

We just left Poggetto and wanted to share some tips to help the next visitors. First, you will need a car to even get to this place. The place is 1.7 kilometers off the main road and it's a very rough potholed road that should not be traveled at night as it is not paved. Once there, the surrounding area was breathtaking. Our hostess, Eva, was surprised to see us as she thought we were arriving the following week even though I had reconfirmed our reservations a few weeks prior. We received one bath towel each and we had to use it our entire stay along with one set of sheets. No washcloths, dish rags, paper towels, napkins or any shampoo, bath gel, etc. We had to buy sponges at the store along with other supplies because nothing is provided.
I would highly recommend this place as a base for the surrounding area but would not stay here and commute to Florence every day as you have to drive half hour to Poggibonsi to catch a train and spend an hour on the train. My recommendation would be to spend five days at this place and then stay in Florence to sightsee.
Also, if you rent La Pergola, even though they state they have internet, it won't work in the apartment. You have to go outside, around the building to get a reception.
We were not offered any tour but again, we didn't ask and the hosts try not to be intrusive but if asked, they are very helpful with recommendations
If you do stay, please be kind to the two kittens and dog that reside at the Farmhouse! They helped us not to miss our own kitties.
