I stayed in Poggiobello for a week. The cottage is absolutely beautiful. The views are absolutely breath taking, the intensity of the green and brown rolling hills. That was my backyard!!! Simoneta, Pepe, Elena and Giacomo and little Maria Luna , sweet, loving, warm family that made me feel so welcome in my stay. I enjoyed getting to know them. Poggiobello is for sure a place to stay in Tuscany if you are looking for relaxation, natural beauty all around!!!

Wonderful! The apartment is a very charming and quite big cottage, consisting of two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, a nice living room and a fully equipped kitchen (no wishes are left open). It is lovely decorated and has a very personal touch which makes you feel at home right from the beginning. The cottage is surrounded by a big and beautiful garden with its own olive grove and a splendid and very clean swimming pool from which you can savor the view over the Tuscany hilly landscape. In the garden several tables invite you to have breakfast or dinner outside at different places. The host family makes you feel very welcome and it is clearly their dedication that makes this place so unique. We had one pleasurable and inspiring dinner evening with them. This place is an absolute highlight and a perfect setting for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation!

This is a very clean villa and set up well for a family with small, respectful children (or teenagers) or couples. Location is very close to all major highways, making travel throughout Tuscany very easy. Can't say enough good things about the property owners, the villa, and the location. Good value for such a beautiful villa. Couldn't be happier with our choice and the memories made at Poggio Bello with Simonetta, Pepe, Elena, & family.
