Our experience at Poggio Antico was spectacular! As we approached the property, the inviting exterior of the villa was so exciting, we knew we'd be making wonderful memories! The atmosphere inside the villa was so warm as it was filled with antiques and mementos. The terrace offered such incredible Tuscan views, the pool and the well manicured property were set with beautiful blooming flowerpots and jasmine rich trellises smelled incredible. All bedrooms were spacious and offered their own washrooms. The entire breathtaking first moments in the villa set the stage for a wonderful Tuscan experience.
Enjoyed Most:
Everything about the property was fantastic. The views from the terrace were the highlight of each morning and late afternoon where we gathered to drink a nice glass of wine while overlooking incredible fields of olive trees and grape vines. For as far as you could see it was a picture perfect postcard view, every day. Even the sunsets over the opposite of the property were breathtaking. The owners clearly take pride in their property. Relaxing with wine and those incredible views from the terrace left us all taking home memories that will last for a lifetime!
Enjoyed Least:
Other than the beds being slightly harder than what we're accustomed to, there were no negatives about the property.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed Baccaiano, Montegufoni and Montespertoli locally as they all had great restaurants and things to see and do within just a few miles. Specifically, the restaurant Ristorante ReF in Baccaiano was fabulous! The winery in Montespertoli was great. Of course trips to Florence, Pisa, Siena and Vinci were also highlights of our trip. The hilltop medieval towns of San Gimignano and Certaldo were spectacular and a must see. San Casciano had the largest and best grocery store and the drive there was spectacular.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montegufoni was the smallest town nearest us. It was within walking distance for the adventurous, but it's a bit hilly and could be difficult if returning with food or groceries. Great small grocery there to get local breads, cheeses, meat and wine to infuse yourself into the Tuscan way.
Tips or Restaurants:
Washing machine and iron and garbage bags were appreciated. Clothes dry incredibly quickly on the line. Coffee maker has its own filter. Starter soap and toilet paper provided. Kitchen and bath towels provided. Wifi worked well. Bringbuy bug repellent if going in bug season. In late May, bugs were not an issue. Restaurants - the restaurant Ristorante ReF in Baccaiano was fabulous! We went twice it was so wonderful. The warm lobster salad was a work of art and was fabulous (very reasonably priced).
The driving directions to the property were perfect. Clarity may be improved by indicating which exit to turn out of in the roundaboutstraffic circles as opposed to just saying follow the signs for the specific town or give the actual name of the street. There are so many signs at each turn that it's difficult to navigate traffic and try to find the exact sign you need. Knowing the exit "out" of the traffic circle may be more comforting. The directions did get us there though. Otherwise, the GPS got us literally everywhere else we needed to go.
Check In Out:
No, the entire check in and check out process was very well explained and it was so nice to get to meet the owners as their input on how to lock up and take care of the villa were appreciated. They were also a great welcoming party and a good resource for how to get the most out of the Tuscan vacation. They were wonderful people and we hope to see them again.

Excellent. Our hosts were magnificent. I wanted the experience of a stay in a Tuscany villa, and we got exactly that. Also, we paid for our hosts to prepare a meal which was fabulous (enough for 2 days of eating).
Enjoyed Most:
The hosts were incredibly helpful and gracious. We got the experience of a Tuscany villa. The location was close to Florence but enough in the country to be what we wanted.
Enjoyed Least:
We found out that you can't turn the heat on in Italy until November. It got a bit chilly, but we decided to come in October. It's just a good idea to be prepared for the chilly weather, even inside.
Surrounding Area:
The experience of the Tuscan countryside.
Nearby Events or Locales:
There were small towns all around. All within easy driving distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
If you come in October, be prepared for chilly weather even inside.
We had a little difficulty finding the property, but it's part of the adventure.
