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
