Amazing down to earth people with a quiet spot to recharge. Less than 10k drive to Siena; easy access to Florence, Chianti region, Montalcino, etc.
If your travel style is with camera and Rick Steve's in hand, these well-furnished villa apartments in the countryside may not be your preference. But, if you want to really live la dolce vita and enjoy waking to birds singing or toasting a Tuscan sunset, you will love this place.
Check directions ahead when you travel because the usual highway exit is closed for reconstruction (requires slight but scenic reroute as of June, 2011).
There are only three main villa apartments so you never feel crowded. Other guests are from all over Europe and North America. We meet really great people every year. (part of the whole experience; even poking fun at the Californians having trouble with the whole "relax" concept!).
This was my fourth year at Poggio Antico, spending full two-weeks of vacation here as "base" and venturing out to explore Tuscany on day trips or just going for walks and reading by the pool. Traveling with friends and family, we save a LOT by cooking our own meals at the apartment plus having the freedom to eat whenever we feel hungry. And, dining "in" means no worry about driving after a few glasses...
Yeah, this is a raving review but the experience at Poggio Salvi is real and so is the recommendation.
