“A perfect holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

When an ad came up on TV the other day about "the perfect holiday", my 5-year-old daughter said: "I already had a perfect holiday with Eva and Massimo"!

And that is actually the truth- me and my spouse had a dream about the Tuscany stone house, agriturism at a HOME environment with a good location to explore the best parts of Tuscany from. We found Poggio Asciutto- went there- and every dream we could have ever had about Tuscany, the landscape, hospitality, home made food and relaxing by the pool side came true.

I went on a horse ride in the hills of the vineyards not having sat on a horse in 25 years: the horses were very well behaved so even at a beginners level it was much enjoyable and it is now a most treasured memory. For our girl, Eva made an adapted riding tour leading the pony at the small roads around the property. Their cooking contains of real home made tuscan food- rustic and well tasting, and Massimo makes the best cappuccino I have ever tasted. The cooking class I took was very personal and thourough. Being an actual working farming company, there are animals around (horses and dogs) and the hosting family has to tend to the farm some of the time, so you can't expect them being available all of the time. But that comes naturally with this kind of vacation and only adds to the charm of the place!

All of the facilities are beautiful, well managed and impeccably clean. Our room was spacious with a sitting area, fridge and a good bathroom with shower and electric towel dryer. The pool area was most comfortable with plenty of variety of sun/shade, sun beds, sun chairs and tables. Excellent!

I will never forget the breathtaking views from the room, from the patio, from the pool, from everywhere ! at Poggio asciutto! We will definitely come back! /Sara

My husband and I had a magical stay with Eva and her charming family at Poggio Asciutto. The accomodations and property are beautiful, and Eva made us feel like part of her family. We were hoping for a beautiful and relaxing stay, and we got that and so much more thanks to Eva's hospitality and recommendations on authentic, off-the-beaten path places to visit.

Poggio Asciutto is in a wonderful location, with easy access to the towns of Greve and Montefiorelli and to beautiful drives in Chianti. The views from the property are gorgeous, and we took some great walks around the farm.

Our suite was lovely, comfortable, and quiet. The hot water in the shower does not last long, so we learned to take efficient showers during the chill of November!

Eva prepared amazing breakfasts for us, and her expert cooking complimented the fresh, quality ingredients. We ate dinner with Eva and her family twice, and we loved the authentic flavors and dishes. The meals were some of the best that we had in Italy, and the company was delightful.

We stayed at Poggio Asciutto in November and loved helping with the olive harvest. Eva's fresh-pressed olive oil is a revelation!

We were very sad to leave Poggio Asciutto and the wonderful people who made our stay special. We hope to return, and we will recommend Poggio Asciutto to our friends and family!

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
