Customer Reviews

Overall:
My family and I had an amazing stay at Poggio Antico. The villa was perfect for 6 adults, each of us had our own room and bathroom (and my parents specifically appreciated having a bedroom on the first floor). Renata and Alessandro were excellent hosts. We also enjoyed the peace and privacy that the property offered.
Enjoyed Most:
Our favorite part of the house was definitely the outdoor patio and pool--as we were able to enjoy all of our meals overlooking the beautiful scenery under some shade, and then relax by the pool under the sun. The pictures really don't do the scenery justice.
Enjoyed Least:
There was nothing we didn't enjoy about the property. The beds and pillows were a bit firm but nothing that would deter us from renting again.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed morning walks exploring the surrounding area overlooking the grape and olive vines (it is very hilly, but we liked the exercise).
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montagnana was the nearest small town. It was within walking distance but we drove to most places in order to pick up groceries go to dinner.
Tips or Restaurants:
Our favorite nearby restaurant was Il Focolare, in Montespertoli (we would have gone twice but it was closed Monday). I would highly recommend scheduling a tasting at the Frescobaldi estate Castiglioni, for a wonderful tour, and excellent wine and olive oil (and only 1 mile from the Villa!) We ended up going to their wine shop which is right down the road and buying more wine and olive oil to take home. We purchased bug spray and a citronella candle at the store (definitely a must in the summer).
Directions:
We used the GPS on our phones to locate the property and did not have any issues.
Check In Out:
The process of checking in and out was very smooth and they accommodated our schedule for our departure. I would definitely stay there again.

Overall:
We absolutely loved our stay. The views were exceptionally beautiful, with vineyards and olive groves as far as the eye could see, and church bells adding to the ambience.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor space was quiet and private, with good shade to eat outdoors comfortably and a nice in-ground pool to cool off in on the hot late June days.
Enjoyed Least:
Due to the rugged, hilly countryside, the roads (very steep, hairpin turns) were not conducive to walks/runs. But that is the trade-off to get hilltop views that were absolutely stunning.
Surrounding Area:
The close proximity to many destinations, such as wineries, Florence and Lucca, was super convenient for day trips.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest village was not more than a mile, but due to the rugged roads and very limited line of sight I would not recommend walking to town. The village however had a wonderful cafe for breakfast pastries we had each morning.
Tips or Restaurants:
Aside from booking Alessandro to cook for you, you must experience the local restaurant, Il Focolare, a 5 minutes drive from the villa, for dinner. Another truly a Tuscan meal-do not miss the chance to taste the Tuscan Bistecca and the pork chop-both to die for. Also the Tuscan cake (made with pine nuts as cream) was an incredible topper to one of the best meals of the trip. If you plan on doing a lot of grocery shopping, perhaps bring some reusable shopping bags.
Directions:
I would say a GPS is incredibly helpful, and I wouldn't want to drive there without one.
Check In Out:
Alessandro and a Renata were amazing hosts, making the check-in and check-out simple and a breeze. Do not look further, this villa will not disappoint.

Overall:
Our stay at Poggio Antico was fabulous. The villa itself was lovely and the outside spaces and owners were accommodating and helpful.
Enjoyed Most:
We loved the views and the outdoor eating space, as well as the areas around the pool.
Enjoyed Least:
No complaints--not one.
Surrounding Area:
The villa is well located with a small town nearby for necessities and then cities like Pisa and Lucca and San Gimignano roughly an hour's drive away for further Tuscan exploration.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montagnana. Yes, it was within walking distance, but a bit of hilly terrain to contend with.
Tips or Restaurants:
We enjoyed our villa dinners best, but did have a fine meal at Il Focolare and would recommend either lunch or dinner there.
Directions:
It was very simple to put the name of the villa into Google maps and just let it guide us there. It was so easy!
Check In Out:
The owners made the process simple and we had no issues whatsoever. No need for suggestions!
