We had 3 nights at Poggiacolle this September and it was just perfect. The property is in a beautiful setting well off the main road so it is quiet and rural in what is an increasingly built up part of Tuscany. The views are divine. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable with spotless classy bathrooms. Our young daughters adored the space, the pool and especially the football game!!! Being so close to San Gimignano you can get there early in the morning or later in the evening and enjoy the town without the crowds. It is also so close to Florence (soooo crowded) and Siena (surprisingly uncrowded). Stefano is so friendly and helpful and speaks great English. Marchella, who lives and works at Poggiacolle works her butt off to provide the great breakfasts and tidy rooms, she doesnt speak English and we dont speak Italian but that makes it all the more fun! Couldnt recommend Poggiacolle more highly if you want to stay in the area.
PS Our children adored the San Gimignano 1300 exhibition (as did we) and climbing the tallest tower.
PPS. If visiting Florence prebook a few days ahead as much as possible, or get there nice and early if going at a busy time. Otherwise you will spend all day in queues!
