The great location and beautiful setting was just what we were looking for. Thanks Lisa at Italy Perfect for guiding us to this villa. Our entire family had a super time. Lots to see and do in the area and Florence is an easy drive, but some of favorite memories is sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine just talking into the night while the teens splashed in the pool.

Loved our stay at Villa Poggio. Had a family reunion and the property was perfect for us. Several other family members stayed just up the road at the Castello Niccolo villas, all under the same management. Everything was top notch! Thanks Italy Perfect for a terrific stay!

Villa Poggio Review

by The Ferreros
This was a fabulous rental - besutiful location, easy to get to many of the besutiful Tuscan villages/cities from here, incredible views, comfortable, large home with lots of space to relax and enjoy! Closest village San Casciano was only minutes away by car, easy to find grocery store, ATM, and great restaurants. And the staff at the Castello Niccolo were friendly, helpful and always provided great advice. No screens/air-conditioning was not a problem - great breezes up on the hilltop and beautiful private pool. We are already looking forward to going back and renting here again!

We had a fabulous time at the castle. It was the perfect base to visit around tuscany and we especially enjoyed meeting other families from around the world. We spent our eves with our new friends. The children played while the grown-ups drank wine looking out over the countryside. Thank you for all your help!

We have returned from our week at the Castello and I wanted to write to say how much we enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are thinking of traveling there again in June 2007 with the extended family and having 3 villas/apartments.

We spent some time in Venice and Rome before we went to the Castello. We had a wonderful stay there - the property was great, the pool was gorgeous - nice and big for laps. The kids look forward to swimming every day after our day trips. Everyone was helpful. We enjoyed going to Mamma Rosa the first night and going to the little town San Casicano and visiting the cheese and wine stores. We had a very positive experience - everything you mentioned was right on - including the freeway noise which was a bit disappointing for us, but we slept through it anyway. Thanks very much for all your help, Pat. We enjoyed the travel journals as well !

I would recommend this villa highly. The view.........it was breathtaking, I never got tired of it and took lots and lots of pictures of the beautiful view. The mountains, the vineyards and olive trees were awesome. Also, the girls at the reception area spoke English pretty well, which helped with check-in.

Villa Poggio Review

by Tricia M
Enjoyed most We loved the setting and the views. Even though we were there at the early part of the spring blooming season it was still very beautiful. We can only imagine what it looks like when the flowers are planted and everything is in full bloom. The kitchen was pretty well equipped. I did bring somethings of my own (due to our location) but it wasn't bad. There are no "real" cereal bowl for those that care, only shallow soup bowls. We improvised and used coffee cups for the kids. Suprisingly there were no wine glassed either. This was fine for the everyday wine but we did have a few better bottles of wine that warranted more than a juice glass. We again brought this to their attention and they brought the wine glasses right away. We found it a little strange though. [Actually, you don't usually find stemmed wine glasses in Italian homes. pb] The fact that our kids could run around, explore, play on the hammock, kick the soccer ball and play with the cats and lizards was sensational. People thought we were crazy to take our kids to Tuscany. They couldn't have been more wrong. They had a fabulous time and so did we. It was a memorable vacation for all of us. When travelling with children it is hard to find a trip that everyone enjoys equally. This was by all means a win/win for everyone. Problems We had some problems with ants....but hey, what are you going to do? They were very attentive to the problem and helped very quickly. We also had a broken toilet that leaked water from the tank. Again, it wasn't a major problem and they did fix it very quickly. Location The location was great for getting to the other places but I wish there had been some more retaurants closer by. Not a big deal though, it's not like we were starved by any means while we were there!!! Recommended sites or restaurants We loved all the little towns, Castellina, Greive and San Gimigano. Just driving the countryside was fun for us. Mama Rosa's was very convenient but we did not find the food to be exceptional by any means. It was great for the first night as well as a night we got home rather late due to a traffic jam. Very homey and cozy but we expected a little more from the menu. Any tips for future guests Book early for Casa Mia--it looked fabulous but they were booked for a week in advance. We really had a fabulous time. I can't say enough about it. The timing was just right for us as well. I'm not sure if it would have been as enjoyable for our family in the summer due to crowds, heat etc. This was just perfect. Really, we can't wait to go back. If we weren't going back to the States this summer I would plan a second trip. We were so relaxed the whole week that the day we did go to Florence we all found it to be too much. The crowds, the noise, the setting was all overwhelming. By the end of the day we were ready to get back to our safe little haven in Tuscany. However, the gelato in Florence was to die for!!!! I dream of it as I nibble away on my measly little Weight Watchers ice cream bar. I've attached some pictures taken at the castle...enjoy! We've passed your information on to friends here in Geneva...we wish you luck.
