Grappolo is situated in the central area of the castle, it's a first floor Tuscan villa with many of the original characteristics, such as the terracotta floor throughout. It's accessed by a flight of external stone steps. Outside at the base of the stairs is a private space furnished with table and chairs to dine al fresco.
Inside is a very spacious open plan kitchen and dining room. In the centre of the room is a large wooden table and six chairs, while to side is a glass cupboard filled with crockery and an antique sideboard with further utensils.
The kitchen is situated in the corner of the room. It's a nice kitchen with a reasonable amount of work space, a fridge with an internal freezer, an oven and gas hobs.
Off to the right of the room is a lovely, cosy lounge with a comfortable double sofa and two armchairs. A bookshelf to one side has books in Italian, English and German.
The sleeping area is off to the left of the kitchen. There is a small hall which provides access to a twin bedroom on the right. It's a lovely room furnished with heavy antique, wooden beds which cannot be set up as a double. In the room is an antique wardrobe.

Location: Castello Poggiarello

Castello Poggiarello is a wonderful, medieval castle only 20minutes drive from Siena. The estate is located on the flat Val di Merse valley floor and it is surrounded by its vineyards, olive groves and fields. There are four little villas rented at the castle, while the rest of the buildings are occupied by the owners and the various estate wine producing activities.
To one side is a large hedged pool area. The sparkling pool is located in the centre of a perfectly manicured lawn which is dotted with several trees which provide refreshing shade in the warm summer months. Under the trees is also a pergola shading a table with chairs.
In the expansive and well maintained gardens there is a beautiful little chapel which can be visited on request. In a shady corner there is also a small play ground for the younger children. The castle estate is fantastically positioned in the peaceful countryside but has easy access to Siena.
There are some farm noises due to the winery activities.

Pool Info

The sparkling shared pool is located to one side of the large estate grounds. It is surrounded by a high fence which provides it with additional privacy. Due to the position of the estate on the valley floor there are limited views.
Around the pool is a manicured lawn with several trees for shade, while a pergola covers a table with chairs. Dotted here and there are sun loungers to relax and soak up the warm Tuscan rays.
The 6x12 metres pool has iron steps to enter and a diving board to the far end. It is 1.5 to 3 metres deep so care must be taken with younger children. It's open from mid-May to September, weather permitting.

Stay: August 2014
Pros Beautiful picturesque property in peaceful surroundings. Lovely small complex with 4 villas, fabulous swimming pool. Excellent location - great location for day trips out to explore the gorgeous surrounding areas. Our villa was very spacious and comfortable. Christina was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous stay here.
Cons The smallest tiniest thing.... it would have been good to have a window covering on the shower window. Everything else was great.
Local attractions Such a great location for day trips out - Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggoni, Val d'Orcia area (Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, Montalcino), Chianti area (Castellina, Greve, Montefioralle). We even got to Pisa and a nearby beach relatively easily on a day trip.

Pros Paysages magnifiques, cyprès, vignes bio, oliviers... Proximité de Sienne, du Val d'Orcia, du Chianti, de San Gimignano... Jardin et jeux (toboggan, balançoire...) parfaits pour les petits. Beau château médiéval, avec chapelle, cave, rempart. Gîte spacieux et pratique (espace nuit séparé, pratique pour les siestes et le soir...). Accueil très agréable : visite de la propriété, vin et huile en cadeau d'arrivée !
Cons Appartement Grappolo sans chauffage, glacé et humide en début de printemps. Doit être parfait en été ou après plusieurs semaines de soleil... Belle piscine, cachée derrière une haie, mais non clôturée (comme souvent en Italie) : attentions pour les jeunes enfants ! Pas de machine à laver.
Local attractions Le Duomo de Sienne, l'abbays de San Olivetto Maggiore et de San Antimo, le village de San Gimignano. Les promenades en vélo aux alentours du gîte.
