This was our second trip to Poggerina, the first time being three years ago. The place was every bit as wonderful as we remembered it. What is particularly special to us about Poggerina is that it is part of the destination -- it isn't just a place to stay. I am always eager to see the sites while on vacation, but sometimes it is nice to have a place to relax and sit awhile. Villa la Poggerina is the perfect spot. It is little things -- the east-facing view that allows for comfortable evenings sitting outside and enjoying the view. (We stayed in a west-facing property once -- the sun was so brutal we stayed inside!) A well-equipped kitchen that allows for casual meals at home. Nice bedrooms and bathrooms with plenty of storage. And a thoughtful host willing to make recommendations and even introduce business connections!
Emanuele and his perfect farmhouse made our Tuscan vacation a truly memorable one. From the warm hospitality of his parents upon our arrival, the insane pizza chef experience, incredible Mama’s lasagna night, olive oil, limoncello, the list goes on. The family was so warm and open, the touches thoughtful and the location impeccable. The house was well-appointed and comfortable and the pool table was a huge hit with the teens. Highly recommend this rental and we can’t wait to return!
We were so pleased with La Poggerina and the friendly and helpful owner, Emanuele. Even before the trip, he made suggestions and gave us advice. The home was a great base for our travels to Tuscan towns, and Florence. Montefioralle is highly recommended. We even managed a train to Rome for a day. The home is the best of both worlds. It is full of old world charm, yet has beautiful modern bathrooms and a large kitchen. We had plenty of room to spread out. The views are fantastic. Our host surprised us with a traditional Easter cake which was lovely and delicious. We will never forget our experience at La Poggerina! Thank you, Emanuele and family!
We stayed at Villa La Poggerina for a wonderful two weeks. We are a family of 5 although the house will easily fit 8. It is very clean and has everything you need.
The views from the house are unbelievable. I sat each morning, with a large espresso watching the mist lift from the Tuscan landscape. The pool is great - our children loved it and swam every day.
Emanuele was a perfect host. Always available but never intrusive. He has great local and Italian knowledge and can really help you experience La Dolce Vita.
We were able to easily visit Siena, Florence and Pisa. We used the bikes provided for a family ride through the vineyards and olive groves, we rode horses through the tuscan hills and our children collected fresh eggs from the chickens each day.
We would highly recommend the pizza evening - a truly fantastic night.
Thanks again Emanuele - I'm sure we will meet again!
Emanuele greets you upon your arrival and acts as your tour guide for the Tuscan Region. The Villa La Poggerina is a perfect location to access all of the jewels the Tuscan Region has to offer. Located just 10 minutes from the train station in Figline Valdarno, Florence is just 23 minutes away. The Villa serves as a perfect home base for easy access to Florence, Cinque Terre, Siena, Montepulciano, and the entire Tuscany Region. The Villa offers four spacious bedrooms that can easily accommodate 8 people. A swimming pool and games make it a perfect place for families with children. Gabriella, Emanuele's mother prepared an Italian dinner for us one night that was favoloso! We highly recommend Villa La Poggerina and plan to return soon. Molto bene!!! Grazie Ema!!!
We stayed in La Poggerina Villa in Tuscany, the location was just amazing, set in the middle of vineyards and olive groves. The peacefulness of the surroundings was just what we needed. The owner Emannuele could not have done more for us providing us with advice on restaurants and places of interest. The villa was brilliant, we had 3 young adults with us and the swimming pool provided hours of entertainment as did the pool table. The villa was immaculate and everything needed for a great holiday provided. Outdoor BBQ and pizza oven were great additions. We were able to collect eggs from the hens daily and were provided with fresh tomatoes and veg daily. excellent holiday all in all
