Both Sara and Allen are Renaissance historians who live at il Poggiolo and commute to work in Florence. Maintaining this 8 hectare property and its buildings is not easy, which is why it has to help support itself. We have therefore renovated radically and have been renting both the "Fienile" (sleeps 5+1) and the "Casa Colonica" (sleeps 4+1) for short holidays and sabbatical stays.
We love il PoggioloTuscany as it is ideally located for day trips, located only 30-45 min. from the major sites of historic and cultural interest. There are also excellent markets in the areas, wonderful restaurants (from village pizzerias to Michelin stars), a number of designer outlets (Prada only 2 km. from house), and warm and welcoming people everywhere.
We are at the high-end of Airbnb, but have received rave reviews to date on other websites (one reviewer said that il Poggiolo provided the best holiday accommodation their family had experienced in over 50 countries !!). We have also done a number of home exchanges, some of which have become annual swops.
We would like to make sure your stay begins in comfort, which is why a welcome basket is provided to incoming guests with refreshments. A welcome binder with helpful hints on the house and information on special things to do in the area supplements the guide books provided.
Come get acquainted with our corner of Tuscany and our little hilltop with 360° stunning views onto the Arno valley, the Apennine mountain range, and the Chianti hills. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information, more pictures, and the link to our website. SPECIAL RATES FOR LONGER STAYS - PLEASE INQUIRE!
