“Fantastic Tuscan experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

My husband and I enjoyed 4 days with Eva and Massimo at their lovely property. By the end we felt more like friends than paying guests. We had a fantastic horse ride around the vineyards and local area. The horses were well cared for and sweet natured unlike many trail horses I've ridden.
I also did the cooking class which I can highly recommend. I was the only one to do it that day so had about a 4-5 hour private lesson where we cooked 5 dishes and Eva gave me other traditional recipes to try. Another guest had done a cooking class somewhere in Florence with 28 people in it so hardly did any cooking! Eva was very patient and took lots of trouble to explain everything and let me do most of it so I could really learn rather than just watch her.
The rooms are clean and comfortable with lovely views over the grape vines. There was a good shower and a little kitchen downstairs if we wanted to use it.
The local town of Greve is also very pretty with some nice shops and restaurants. This is a good location to visit Siena and Florence for the day. We also were lucky enough to arrive when the next little town, Panzano had a wine festival which was terrific.
Definitely have dinner at the farm, it is such an enjoyable evening. Such great fun with delicious home cooked food and wine from the estate. Breakfast was also very good.
Eva is the ultimate hostess and nothing was too much trouble. They were a lovely family and we are looking forward to visiting them again soon.

My daughter and I were recently visiting family nearby and we visited Poggio Asciutto because we heard it was a good place to go horseback riding. My daughter had never been on a horse before and she went off for a 2-hour ride with four other people and Eva as their guide. She had a wonderful time - probably one of the most memorable of our whole trip. While we were there Eva showed us around the property - the apartments they have to rent, the pool, the dining room. It is absolutely lovely and we hope to go back and stay there. They also make very good Chianti there and all kinds of jam. Scenic doesn't even begin to describe it. Highly recommend!

We have just returned from a 7 day stay with Eva & Massimo at the Poggio Asciutto and can highly recommend at stay here. Our apartment was very clean and well appointed, with a great little kitchen and bathroom and a wonderful bedroom. The hospitality is amazing and you are made to feel very much at home! It is well placed in central Chianti and only about 10 mins from Greve. We based ourselves at the Pofggio Asciutto and made many a memorable day trip throughout Tuscany. We suggest you take a bus into Florence (about and hour) and avoid any parking hassles, Eva can provide you with great suggestions for local restaurants but we highly recommend at least a few nights in their restaurant savoring Massimo and Eva's excellent cooking and wines!!!!

Four Canadians traveling together had the pleasure of staying with Eva and Massimo at their home, "Poggio Asciutto" in Greve Chianti. Our hosts provided beautiful scenery, a very comfortable, clean two bedroom suite and the most outstanding italian meals we had eaten so far during our journey through Italy. Thank you Massimo, for your fab culinary presentations. The location was perfect to explore the countryside and yet also allowed us to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. Rumor has it that the Mona Lisa was painted close by. If ever you happen to be in this area of Tuscany, you must book a room here, go horseback riding and stay for dinner. Try Eva's home made relishes over the specialty cheeses. We had to bring some home with us.

Of all of our Italian stays, by far we felt most at home at Poggio Ascuitto. Eva and Massimo's little slice of heaven in Chianti exceeded all our expectations of a true Tuscan experience. Their warmth as hosts and the way in which they embraced us into their family is not the type of experience you will get from a hotel. Not to be forgotten was their food, wine and friendly animals. We will be back at any opportunity.

Room Tip: La Torre was incredibly spacious

My partner and I visited Poggio Asciutto as part of our trip to Italy in August 2012. We can both honestly say that it was the most memorable, most enjoyable, most relaxing part of our trip. We happened upon Poggio Asciutto by luck – we cold called several places and they happened to have one room available and we jumped on it. The website is not fancy but the place is paradise on earth.


The amazing Eva picked us up from the bus stop in Greve in Chianti (public bus, about 3 Euros each way from Florence) and from that moment, we knew she was a special person. When we arrived, she showed us to our room. It was a beautiful, serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of Florence. From our door, we could see green rolling hills and grape vines for miles. The washroom was spotless and the room was clean and tastefully decorated. On our little terrace, we enjoyed a bottle of wine and enjoyed some quiet alone time outdoors – something that turned out to be a rarity on our little trip. Even though the place was fully booked when we were there, we felt like we had the place to ourselves.



Some of the highlights of our trip included dining with Eva, horseback riding through the country side, swimming in the pool and going on several wine tastings. We both highly recommend this place for couples, singles and families. Eva and her husband are both just really nice people that I think everyone will immediately take a liking to, just as we did. The spirit that they have created is a welcoming, relaxed getaway without any pretension. And oh, how could I not mention the FOOD! Wow! Everything that we ate was fresh, local and even from their own farm. The quince jam was SO delicious, as was the morning spread of breads, cornetti, ham, eggs, and the most perfect cappuccino that you will ever have. Dinner was fantastic too –a 4 or 5 course meal, all local and made with love by Eva, including the olive oil and wine which are organic and from their farm.



If we had more time, we would have visited the surrounding areas but even with just one night ( two days), it was the most perfect part of our entire trip. I regret not stocking up on more food when we left but we had to catch the bus so only got two bottles of wine. What I wouldn’t do for some of that jam, olive oil, limoncello and pepperoncini – all made with care and love by Eva.


We highly recommend this place.

Location unbeatable - central to everything with rolling hill views! Gorgeous vista! Family owners could not be kinder, nor more hospitable, apartment was perfect. We will recommend this place to all travelling to Tuscany. Private, amazing apartment - wait till you open the curtains in the morning, and first class hospitality and cooking classes.

Have dinner there with Eva and her daughter Olivia! So cute! Oh, and my gosh - their wine - beautiful! Total sanctuary filled with so much warmth. This place is wonderfully special - owners go above and beyond to look after you.
