“Incredible villa in the heart of Tuscany”
Reviewed 25 May 2006

Our 2 week jaunt through Italy incuded a 2 night stay at the lovely villa. Photos and descriptions of the rooms and grounds do not do it justice. We stayed in the suite, which I would highly recommend splurging on as it is well worth the extra money. The suite has an enourmous living room with 18 foot celings and a small balcony overlooking the countryside. The bedroom is equally as large.

The grounds of the villa are straight out of a storybook - fountains, flowers, and an amazing marble swimming pool.

From Villa Poggiano, you are within 5-45 minutes of many great hill towns including Pienza and Montepulciano, and you can also drive to Siena easily.

Stefania is a lovely host, she knows all the good restaurants and is very helpful with reservations and driving directions.

I cannot say enough about our stay at Villa Poggiano. The photos on the web site only begin to do justice to how stunning the setting and villa are. We were upgraded to a huge suite which was just outstanding, but were able to look at some of the other rooms, and all were beautiful.

The villa is perched on a hill between Pienza and Montepulciano, which are two of my favorite towns in Tuscany, and both are not to be missed. The location is perfect for a few reasons: you get stunning views of Pienza and Montepulciano in the near distance, flanked by olive groves and vineyards in the foreground. Also, both towns are close enough that you can dine in either one - and there are many incredible restaurants from which to choose - and drive back home in just minutes. Finally, you're smack in the middle of the absolute best scenery and sights in Tuscany; there are a wide variety of lovely villages, abbeys, monasteries, vineyards and more, all within a 30-minute drive in any direction. The Tuscan landscape in this area is almost indescribable in its lush beauty.

The grounds are immaculately kept, and you pretty much feel like Italian royalty wandering around the gardens and enjoying the views. It was too cold in late-October to use the pool, but it looked wonderful and I could imagine relaxing by it in the summertime.

Breakfasts were beyond delicious and served in a lovely, formal but relaxed dining area, with classical music piping softly in. Fresh home-made pastries and little cakes were always waiting for us, along with terrific coffee and fresh breads, cheeses, cereals and yogurts.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the service Stefania provided was impeccable. She guided us to the best restaurants in the area for lunch and dinner each night, and provided general advice and hints without being the slightest bit intrusive. It was a pleasure to get to know her and her beautiful villa. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I spent a day and a night at Villa Poggiano last October; our only regret is that we could not have stayed for a much longer period. We occupied a charming second-floor room in one of the newly-restored guest houses which had been tastefully furnished and afforded a glorious, pre-Renaissance view of the Val d'Orcia. Stefania, our elegant and refined hostess, spoke excellent English and went out of her way to be engaging and helpful. God willing, my wife and I will return, this time with all our children, and, when we do, we will stay for a much longer period.

The villa sounded good in our Frommer's book, so we went for it. It was one of the best decisions of our vacation! We felt like it was our own private villa, it was so quiet and secluded. And cool under the pines, even though the day was hot. It was easy to find and not far from town.

The views were spectacular, the place Stephania sent us for dinner was great (such friendly service!), the bed was comfortable, the bathroom huge and beautifully fitted out, and did I mention the views? We will be back, and we'll stay longer next time.

We just spent one fantastic week at Villa Poggiano. It is by far the best secret in Tuscany and gives everyone a chance to see the REAL Tuscan countryside. Stefania is one of the most friendly and helpful operators of a hotel anywhere and once you meet her you will understand why we say that. Her assistant Angela is also a very warmhearted and wonderful person. One week was not too much time as we loved the Villa and took all of Stefania,s suggestions as to what to see and how to get there by car.
We have been to Italy 21 times now and this hotel ranks with the nicest of them all..Don,t miss it if you are planning to see the small wine villages etc in Tuscany

My husband and I just returned from a trip through Italy and were lucky to have found Villa Poggiano. It is a charming, private Tuscan villa surrounded by gorgeous countryside and is well located just a few minutes from the town of Montepulciano and the areas wineries. Stefania, the inn-keeper, is a wonderful host and was very helpful in setting up tours of local vineyards, providing restaurant recommendations, etc. The standard rooms in the main villa, although not overly luxurious, are very nicely appointed with antique furnishings. Next time, we may splurge on a suite as several of those have views which were amazing. The entire villa is very well kept, including the beautifully maintained grounds. We will definitely return to Villa Poggiano during our next visit to Tuscany, it's a gem!

A friend and I just spent three nights at the Villa Poggiano last week. It is an incredibly beautiful place. The villa itself is a lovely building with old beam ceilings and large rooms. The grounds are even nicer, with the most beautiful swimming pool and gorgeous views all around. And it is quiet....Possibly too quiet for some. I found it the villa and the other patrons to be staid and would have preferred something a bit more lively, my friend loved the peace and quiet and is already planning a return trip with her partner. For my money, I will stay in Bagno Vignoni next time at something cheaper and more fun.
