Stay here!!! The Poggiacolle farmhouse is absolutely beautiful. This was one of the highlights of our trip in October 2011. When we arrived at the farmhouse we were so amazed by the property’s view of San Gimignano. We stayed at the room next to the office. It is a fully equipped room (kitchen with full size refrigerator and stove). The private bathroom shower is roomy and has an awesome recessed light on the wall. The bed is very comfortable and the room is very quiet and we slept like babies each night. Waking up each morning with views of their vineyards, their olive trees and the absolutely amazing view of San Gimignano was so relaxing. The breakfast is a standard European breakfast (pastries, bread, cold meat, cheese, yogurt, juice, coffee).
The owner, Stefano was a fantastic host. He is so friendly, engaging, and makes you feel so at home the minute you arrive. His personality is one of the main reasons that makes this agriturismo so great. He advised us on where to park in San Gimignano and provided several recommendations to go for dinner and dishes to try. When you leave you feel like you are saying goodbye to a close friend.
San Gimignano is a short walking distance from the farmhouse. One can use the free mountain bikes to ride to San Gimignano though we ended up driving. The infinity pool overlooking San Gimignano is absolutely beautiful. It is dramatically lit at night. It is a great home base to visit hilltowns such as San Gimignano, Voltera, and Sienna. We enjoyed red wine and olive oil and we purchased more to take home with us. We wish we stayed longer than 2 nights. We would definitely stay here again and would HIGHLY recommend the Poggiacolle agriturismo farmhouse to our friends and family .
