We spent 4 nights here in June and did not want to leave. What a wonderful little place.
My wife and I spent hours and hours looking online at lodging options for our vacation to Italy. After booking Poggio Al'Olmo, I became worried about the low price (the old 'you get what you pay for' kind of thinking...). As we drove up the road after the turn off for Lamole we saw many beautiful places we could have booked, many that I recognized from my online research. Just as I was really starting to kick myself for not springing for a more expensive place we found the little bumby road which is the driveway to Poggio. Now I was fully convinced I'd blown it. As we rounded the corner where the house and apartments come into view we were in awe. The location and scenery are overwhelming.
Our room was modest size but the bathroom was rather large and well done. The grounds are very nice, not plush, but very well kept. Pictures do not do this place justice, and the pool is the best example. The pool area is very nice and VERY quiet! It was so hot we had to lay up around lunch time, otherwise you just begin to fade. I'll post some of my pics soon.
The breakfast is well worth it. Each day there were poached eggs, cereal, fruit and pastry. It was great to not have to worry about going to find breakfast. There are so many wonderful places to eat that the choice can be overwhelming. Francesca gave us wonderful restaurant recommendations.
If you are looking to relax in a location where you can really explore Chianti, this is the place!
