We stayed here for two weeks in July 2013. We found Serena to be a warm and attentive host, always on hand with information regarding the best places to visit, eat, or any other queries you may have about your stay in general. We stayed in Il Fienile, which was spotlessly clean and homely, with a feeling of Tuscany in the choice of décor. The kitchen is complete with all the utensils you will need to prepare delicious Italian dishes. We absolutely loved the swimming pool and enjoyed going for an early morning dip. We would then sit out on our private terrace for breakfast, whilst gazing at the beautiful view of Serena’s garden roses and the Tuscan countryside backdrop.
Poggibonsi is perfectly positioned, with quick and easy access onto the motorway. It took about 30 minutes in either direction to travel to Florence and Siena and there are plenty of picturesque villages to visit more locally too. The Chianti region is on the doorstep and the scenery is breath-taking!
We were treated to an impromptu wine tasting hosted by Serena, who is very knowledgeable, with two other couples and which turned into a very sociable evening together, enjoying the fantastic view from the wine terrace. The wi-fi connection has been upgraded and was available on our terrace.
We have already recommended Il Melograni del Chianti to our family and friends and would not hesitate to return if we are lucky enough to be able to do so.
