Poggio Asciutto
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Our family of four stayed one night with Eva & Massimo. We had 2 connected bedrooms which we asked for. We did not know that included a nice country kitchen and sitting area downstairs, a nice bonus. Another bonus was the pool on a hot Tuscan afternoon. Eva was a great host and will suggest all types of activities. The wine tour she suggested was the highlight of our 2 week vacation and our grown kids loved it. Eva offers a Tuscan dinner for a reasonable price. Don't miss it! It was so nice talking to fellow travelers from around the world. This is the way travel ought to be.

We stayed at Poggio Asciutto at Easter 2012 and had looked forward to this stay with great anticipation, based on friends' recommendations. We (two couples) shared a two bedded apartment. There was a small kitchen/dining space downstairs and the bedrooms and ensuites were upstairs, at the back of the house. We arrived on a very cold, rainy day and it rained for our whole three day stay. When we complained about the cold we were told brusquely by Eva that they "couldn't help the weather" but we felt they certainly could help the lack of heating. The heating (or rather, the lack of it) was centrally controlled and at no time was it warm enough for us to be comfortable in the apartment. Being so cold clouds one's impressions of a place. At 200 euros a night we felt we did not receive value for money. Massimo had just opened a restaurant nearby but we never formally met him and even though we had breakfast and one dinner in the agriturismo dining room, we did not experience the hospitality other contributors have. There was ample food, but the quality was ordinary.
With the hundreds of rentals available in Chianti this is not the place to stay in cold weather.

We stayed at Poggio Asciutto for two days after a rather busy city trip (Venice - Bologna - Florence). This was our time to calm down and relax and enjoy nature, and it worked out exactly that way. The farmhouse is on top of a small hill so the views are gorgeous. Our room was clean, comfortable, stylish, and quiet. Hot water for showering was limited, as one would expect in a a remote location, but more than adequate. We had two lovely homestyle dinners with Eva and her daughter, on the second day also accompanied by other guests. We thought these communal dinners were a really nice extra - you can naturally meet other travelers if you want to. Eva's pappa el pomodoro (typical Tuscan dish) was outstanding. We played Connect-Four with Eva's daughter, which she was good at (and she didn't like losing). After having seen Eva go horseback riding with two tourists who came from elsewhere, we decided to give this a try ourselves (first time). It was wonderful - the trip was more than an hour and we made a big loop through the surrounding hills. The horses were beautiful and free-spirited, Eva was a patient and encouraging teacher, and the lesson is very affordable. Overall, this trip couldn't have been better, mostly because our hosts were so warm and truly caring - this agriturismo is really their passion, not just a job (their expenses are also high so they probably hardly make anything). We are already making plans to come back and stay longer.

I had literally spent months scouring various websites and reading TA reviews on what seemed like hundreds of Tuscany holiday lets. We had a list of fairly straight forward wants:- rural location yet handily placed for touring the area, a working vineyard, self catering with a pool and somewhere with character. Poggio Asciutto ticked all of those boxes and then some. So with the satnav loaded we had a very straight forward journey from Pisa airport to reach the Poggio in just over an hour. The vineyard is located just off the famous Chiantigiani which is the road that snakes through the Chianti region between Sienna and Florence and is about a five minute drive from the pleasant little market town of Greve.
After that where do you start? The drive from the main road takes you through woods and vineyards until you climb up the slight hill to the estate itself where you are greeted with stunning views over rolling hills covered with olive groves and vineyards, dotted with wine estates, farms and country houses. On arrival we were greeted by our host Eva who showed us to our accomodation, the two bedroom torro apartment. This consists off a comfortable lounge/diner with a small kitchenette leading on to the spacious main bedroom and bathroom with a further bedroom in the roofspace. The apartment was well furnished and equipped and with another stunning view over the vineyards from the bedroom window. Outside there are numerous tables chairs and seating areas before you make your way upto the swimming pool from where you gain across the surrounding hills, This is spacious peaceful haven with plenty of sunloungers, with tables and chairs under gazebos for a welcome bit of shade to enjoy lunch (and more wine) away from the baking sun.
However just to describe the facilities of the Poggio doesn't do it justice. This was our first time visiting Italy and our stay here was everything we hoped Italy would be and more. Eva and Massimo are the most welcoming of hosts from the first moment we arrived and had our first bottle of their wonderful wine to the sad moment we had to leave. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to dine with Eva and sample some of her cooking although it smelt amazing! We did dine at Massimo's restaurant nearby which was one of best meals we had and we were made to feel yet again like treasured guests with the stunning terrace overlooking the valley completely to ourselves.
The Chianti region is amazing from the small medieval villages of Radda and Monteforialle to the awe inspiring wine estate at Vignamaggio which borders Poggio Asciutto - a must do place to visit. Every restaurant we visited served fresh rural Tuscan cuisine which was a million miles from anything served in your local Italian in the UK and without a fault the staff and local residents were pleasant and friendly and taken an obvious pride in their region.
I think the question I always ask people about their holiday is "would you go back?" and as for ourselves and Poggio Asciutto - we'd go back tommorow and are already thinking about our next visit - a wonderful relaxing place with wonderful food and wine coupled with some of the nicest people your likely to meet in the heart of some of the most amazing scenery.

staying at this family run agriturismo was one of the highlights of our vacation to Italy. We travelled with 2 other couples who shared our week with us. We stayed in a lovely 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit overlooking the beautiful vineyards. Eva & Massimo were incredible hosts and shared their delicious meals, family and laughter with us. The meals were amazing, wine was flowing and we truly felt part of the family. We were lucky enough to have our friends that travelled with us recommend it, and we will certainly go back some day. Thank you Massimo, Eva, Olivia, Juergen & Luigi & Nancy!

We can't stop talking about our amazing stay in Poggio Asciutto in June 2011. The views, the food..... and Eva, Olivia and Massimo are fantastic hosts, we felt like part of the family. Family dinners together with the host family and other guests from around the world are maybe my strongest memory froom this trip. We also experienced a lunar eclipse over the Tuscan hills. Magic!

The children (6, 4 and 3 yo) loved the swimming pool and to play with Olivia and the dogs. Horse back riding in the vineyeards was also a huge hit! Ice cream trips to the nearest town of Greve are recommended as well as trips to the nearby medieval villages and cities. The local market was fun.

I can strongly recommend a visit at Poggio Asciutto if you are looking for genuine Italian hospitality, breathtaking views, beautiful surroundings and AMAZING food.
