“The perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany with a loving partner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2011

My Husband and I stayed at the hotel for a week, and enjoyed it very very much.
We got to the hotel at night - and couldn't see the beauty of the place until morning - wow, it was great to wake up to such views!
the apartment is large and comfortable, the are no groceries - but we knew that in advance and the hotel staff made sure to give us addresses of super-markets close by and even offer to do the shopping for us.
when we asked for an advice regarding restaurants (we are somewhat problematic with food due to allergies) the hotel staff found for us a great place and recommended on visiting sites.
all and all - we would be very happy to get there again and recommend this hotel to friends and family.
enjoy!

Dear Cheli,

we have been very happy to read your nice report but more than that, we really hope to welcome you again here at Quercia al Poggio, maybe, as you have been during spring time, during autumn when we have the harvest of the grapes (September/October)

Thank you again for choosing us for your holiday

Giordana, Michela and Roberta

We stayed at quercia al poggio for 4 nights, with 2 young children and a baby. I would recommend staying away from this place and sure other more welcoming places could be found in the area! The area itself is a good location but the farm is very distant from the road (which could not be understood from the website). The apartment is large, but poorly equipped - no basic cooking products, like sugar or oil; we had to fight for some soap for the baby's bottles (which was there after all, but first we got the answer: "we don't provide it"); 3 rolls of toilet paper and 2 trash bags, that we had to throw at the end of the stay or otherwise pay! The service was un-welcoming, focusing on taking the money and nothing more. We were charged with extra payment for heating, it was apparently written on the voucher, but wasn't mentioned at check-in or when we were instructed on how to operate it (extra 45 euro!). The swimming pools where closed, although that was not mentioned on the website. All in all we feel the website mislead us.
We enjoyed our stay in Tuscany despite this accommodation and will definitely recommend staying away from this place!

Dear Elefant family,
thank you for your review, we appreciate it very much because it gives us the opportunity to answer.
What for you was a disease (to be distant from the main road) for the most of the people is the most intersting feature when they choose to come to us.
Regarding the basic cooking products, in according with the common sense of igienic rules, we leave clean any single object in the apartment so we don't put any olive oil or salt/sugar but we give the chance to have a first food shop that we notice already at the first e-mail after the booking. At the countrary we place into the apartments: igienic paper, dish soap, trash bags for the first days but NOT soap for baby bottles. In the same e-mail after the booking we communicate very well and many times that heating is not included in the price and, specifically in your case, was written in the mail dated March 16th and also in the booking voucher.
More: as this is not an hotel but a farm holiday we don't have a 24 hours front desk but the check is is from 4 pm to 7 pm and even if we asked many times to let us know the arrival time we had no answer from you so, since you arrived later, we had to provide with a person that lives here who was waiting for you and explained as well how to manage the heating.

Regarding the swimming pools as long as we are still in a cold season (not more than 5 degrees in the morning) we did not realized that was necessary to write in our web site, but thank you we will write it very soon.

Lastly we are sorry to notice that any way to help you or be gentle was completely and never appreciated.

Kind regards,

Quercia al Poggio staff and the owner

Quercia al Poggio is a very nice, relaxing place with a view appartments, swimming pools. The buildings are beautiful, the appartments also. The staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our week there very much: every day we made another trip to come back in the afternoon to relax on the grounds of Quercia al Poggio. And of course we enjoyed the wine and olive oil produced at this vineyard.

The only slightly negative point, but not at all too annoying, is that you can here the highway from the terrace (not too much, but little noise).

Dear Annemarije,

thank you very much for your report! We have been very pleased to welcome you and your family and we hope we will welcome you again.

About the noise: you have been very unlucky because during summer time is much more quite and it depends on the winds.

Thank you again

Even if you never touched a paintbrush in your life, staying at Quercia al Poggio will surely inspire you to new creative summits. The Tuscan colours and wonderful views are a feast for the eye and Quercia offers the visitor all of the above as a daily treat. Floating gently in the pool under a blue sky one is offered a grand view over the rolling Tuscan hills. Fruit trees and fresh rosemary all around you can save you a trip down the hill to the supermarket when you feel lazy at the end of the day. Staying at Quercia in early september offered the combination of warm weather and fewer guests. Most days we had the pool to ourselves so we had all day to figure out our daytrips or just what dinner in our greatly furnished apartment would look like. Starry skies over our terrace offered a matching desert at our candlelit dinnertable. The trip up to Quercia's hilltop is a feast of driving in itself. From the freeway a curvy road takes you up for a ten minute ride past cypresses, vinyards and through pinewoods with hidden homes behind them. In between Florence and Siena Quercia is conveniently situated for daytrips. Even the beach is quite reachable if you want a taste of the Mediterranean. Together with their staff, owners Michela and Vittorio offer the guests a warm feeling of hospitality that you take home to cherish until your next visit. And a next one there will certainly be!

The staff at Quercia were so welcoming and went over and above to accommodate us! The villa we stayed in was roomy and had a gorgeous terrace to relax on for breakfast and after dinner. The pool area was divine, with beautiful views and the tennis court, table tennis and table soccer were also popular. Not having a DVD player and TV was a great thing - we played loads of cards and had lots of fun!
The nearby little town of San Donato was lovely - great for dinner (lovely quiet town even during late August) and has a fabulous little gelato shop!
Location was handy to Poggobonsi (for necessities, etc), Siena, San Gimignano and Florence.
We can also recommend the horse riding organised through Quercia - we had a delightful lesson for two for only 40 Euros.
Complimentary winery tour and tasting at Quercia was very worthwhile and interesting (and the wine was great!)
Fabulous fruit trees were a highlight for the children - we were invited to eat the figs and dates - kids loved this! the gardens also were exceptional - very pretty and romantic.
Car essential (as for most Tuscany holidays I'm sure) - heaps of free parking space at the villa.
It was great to have free Wi-Fi access (even worked for our I-Phone 4, which wasn't always the case at other places we stayed)
Beautiful!

thank you so much for your review.
We have been so happy to read that your stay at Quercia al Poggio has been so nice and we hope to welcome you here again even if you are not really after the corner :))

I planned my destination wedding at this beautiful estate, and it exceeded my wildest dreams. Michela, who is the owner of the estate, was also my wedding coordinator for the event, and she did an amazing job with the help of her two wonderful assistants. My family and my husband's family rented out the entire estate for a week, and I highly recommend the same to anyone who is wanting to plan a destination wedding in beautiful Tuscany.

The rates were affordable, and it was nice to have the whole place to ourselves. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable with full working kitchens and washing machines for laundry. The owners of the estate have made many improvements to the property including two gorgeous pools that have incredible views of Tuscany. There is ping pong, billiards, a sport court for soccer or tennis, and of course a wine tour to enjoy while you are staying there. The Chianti classico wine they make onsite was outstanding, and it was so easy to just order up another case of it whenever we wanted to drink some more.

The pictures of this place do not even do it justice, and it was even more beautiful than I had hoped for before heading over there. We had our wedding on the grass with a stunning view of the valley and vineyards around us. We had our cocktail hour at the pool with views of the valley and vineyards as well. The wedding dinner was held in the courtyard under a tent with dancing under the stars.

Everything about how Michela helped plan my wedding was top notch, from the catering recommendations, to the photographer, to the flowers (which were absolutely gorgeous), to the decorations around the reception area. I really could not have asked for a more wonderful wedding coordinator and host for my dream wedding.

I highly recommend to anyone wanting to plan a destination wedding in Tuscany, that they consider reserving Quercia al Poggio, and my family and husband and I all intend to stay in touch with the owners and return to stay with them in the future. I really cannot say enough good things about our week there, and my wedding there.
