We were lucky enough to come across this renovated farm house stay on the advice of the San Gimignano tourist information office. We had wanted to stay in a farm house, and we were quite overwhelmed by the variety on offer, and with no way to tell how good they would be.
Poggio Multei was perfect! There's a large building with several small apartments, and a smaller building with two apartments. All beautifully renovated- ours had two bedrooms with a good-sized kitchen. Central heating and comfortable beds were a real bonus. The grounds are beautiful and, as a working farm, interesting. The owner greeted us with a bottle of wine from the farms own vineyard, and a welcoming tour of a property he is obviously proud of.
It's a short drive to San Gimignano (easily the most wonderful town in Tuscany, and with an award winning gelateria), and the town itself is visible from most of the windows of the apartments. Wonderful! Sitting on the terrace, sipping wine, watching the sun turn the medieval towers red as it sets - it's one of those special moments, a moment I could have because of this property.
(I actually travelled in Spring 2010, and I've been waiting for the property to be on Trip Advisor so I could post this review.)
