Poggetto is located in the heart of the Chianti just a short 600 metre walk from the quiet, typical village Lucolena. The villa is a traditional Tuscan stone property filled with character and with pretty views of the forest and vine covered hills that surround it.

Down the large terraced gardens there is the small pre-fabricated pool. It's perfect for cooling off and sun bathing during the warm summer Tuscan days. The pool is surrounded by sun beds with umbrellas and there is a picnic table to one side to enjoy outdoor meals. From here there are wonderful views of the countryside.
The Villa was previously rented as two apartments so the layout is ideal for family groups to each have some privacy. On entering Poggetto you pass through an arched doorway into a comfortable lounge with a couple of armchairs and a sofa huddled around an open fireplace which can be used on cooler spring or autumn evenings. There is also a Sat TV in one corner of the room.

Continuing through another arch there is the dining room which is very characteristic with a high ceiling and the original stone walls. The room is well furnished with a table and chairs seating comfortably 8 people. On one side is a large glass window providing the room with lots of light.

To the left of the dining rooms is the first of the two kitchens. This is the main kitchen and is well equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, gas hobs and an oven. There is also a table with four chairs in the room. There is access to a bathroom with shower. A door leads out to a furnished terrace for meals al fresco.

From here there are stone steps the lead up to the mezzanine floor, where there is a double bedroom. This floor has a open metal railing looking down to the kitchen, therefore it is not suitable for children. The room itself has been done nicely with a tasteful mix of old and new. The roof is not full height.

To the other side of the dining room there is a large twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. From this room stone steps lead up to the third bedroom which is also a comfortable double. The upstairs bedroom is open via  the stairwell to the downstairs one making this a suitable combination for a family. There is a large window upstairs providing the room with a large amount of light and lovely views.



Going back to the entrance and lounge area there is access to the second, smaller kitchen, which has a gas hobs, a small fridge and an oven. To one side of the room is a sofa with TV and a table with chairs for eating. There is access to the outside from this room.



The fourth bedroom is accessed by wooden stairs from this smaller kitchen. They lead to the first floor where there is a bathroom with shower and a large private double bedroom. This room can be made into a twin on request.





600 meters walk to a small shop and village.





An unpaved road passes the front of the villa. It's used by guests of a neighbouring agriturism.

Pros We waren met 5 volwassenen en één kind van ruim twee jaar.

Het huis was in één woord geweldig en wat een prachtig uitzicht vanuit alle hoeken van het huis. We hadden ons er veel van voorgesteld, maar dit overtrof alle verwachtingen.
Alle kamers waren bijzonder gezellig ingericht en boden voor iedereen voldoende privacy.
Buiten was het alleen maar genieten. De geurende heggen van rozemarijn, de bijen die de gehele dag zoemden in de lavendel, de prachtig vlinders die overal te bewonderen waren en dan nog die heerlijke kruiden die we volop konden plukken.
Terrassen op elke mooie plek rond het huis! En natuurlijk het zwembad waar iedereen van genoot!
Wat een verrassing om halverwege de week een heerlijke lasagne te krijgen van de bijzonder aardige eigenaars, zodat we nog langer met ons kleinkind rond het zwembad konden blijven zitten. Voor ons was het één groot feest in Poggetto, een vakantie om nooit te vergeten!!

Pros This is such a gorgeous traditional villa in an amazing spot. The hosts were amazing, even cooking us a traditional lasagne and dropping it off at the villa. The photos can't even capture the beauty, it is amazing and such wonderful value for money.

We loved our stay so much, I actually cried when we left. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us.

Pros Heerlijk rustig gelegen met magnifiek uitzicht! We verbleven er met twee gezinnen en 4 jonge kinderen. Het zwembad was klein maar erg leuk gelegen en prima vertoeven. Gezien de jonge kinderen zou het fijn zijn geweest als de slaapkamers wat meer gescheiden van elkaar konden zijn. Het was zo erg gehorig.

Pros Authentieke villa leuke indeling en mooie ligging. Prachtig uitzicht.
Vriendelijke ontvangst ondanks de late aankomst
Werden in het midden van de week verrast met een huisgemaakte
pasta schotel. Heerlijk.
Cons De laatste 100m weg waren verschrikkelijk slecht. Maar misschien kan dit niet anders ivm de steile helling??
Local attractions Hebben zelf gekookt ivm met kleine kinderen. Pizza's in lucolena waren erg lekker en spotgoedkoop. Vriendelijke bediening. De wijn uit de fattoria is aan te bevelen.

Pros Superb location, high on hillside. Quiet but near small village. Fantastic views. Good swimming pool to cool off in. A heavenly spot near Florence, Siena, Pisa and everything in between.
Cons A lot of horse flies by the swimming pool... not sure why as they were nowhere else.
Local attractions We cooked and ate at home. A nice surprise was the Etruscan tomb at Castellina in Chianti.

Pros It was everything the advert said, in every way fabulous & extaordinarily beautiful! The only drawback which isn't really anything to do with the villa is the upstairs rooms were so hot during our stay in August, even with the fans provided... That's more the climate I know, but perhaps a few more fans & mosquito nets for August would give it a 10 out of 10!!
Local attractions Lovey restaurant & views in La Panda
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

22.08.2013
Note from the owner: We are happy when our guests enjoy their stay in Poggetto and give us some suggestions. We just have one bedroom without mosquito net and we are going to put it in that room as well. We also want to add two more fans to the three we have in the villa, although the climate is usually very pleasant, as we are located on a hill at 500 masl.

Pros Some context - we'd booked another villa, that owner contacted us at the last moment to tell us that the villa would not have water for the first 3 days.

I wrote to several other places, and found Lisa to be very responsive. We were able to nail down Pogetto in a matter of a day.

I was somewhat apprehensive, since I had not had a chance to research Pogetto. However, it was a wonderful place - lots of space, beautiful surroundings, close enough to civilization to get groceries, etc.

The checkin process was very simple, owners were waiting for us. They were very responsive (e.g., to getting the thermostat figured out), baked us a delicious lasagna, and it was a great holiday.
Cons Two small issues: the lighting was a bit dim (in part because the CFL lights take time to warmup), and the directions seemed suboptimal (they said to take the Figline exit from the A1, coming south, but the earlier one was better).
Local attractions geve-in-chianti, many other small hill towns.

Pros As a previous reviewer stated, this property exceeded our expectations. The house was comfortable and very well cared for, the grounds were beautiful, and everyone we dealt with was lovely. We loved eating outside in the evenings and admiring the amazing views. We were a diverse group (myself, my husband, our 16-month old, my mother and mother-in-law) and everyone was pleased with every aspect of our visit.
Cons The first time we drove up the little road to Poggetto was a bit unnerving, but after that it was no problem at all.

Pros The property itself was very beautiful and well maintained. The views are stunning from every direction and the owner has clearly taken pride in maintaining every part of the property. It was in a nice quiet area but also a good distance to other towns. The owner was very friendly and helpful. From the pictures on the website, this villa exceeded our expectations. It was also a good layout for three couples as we each had our own area of the villa.
Cons We cooked a lot and could have used better tools in the kitchen. The knives were a bit dull and we kept running out of glasses. We also found the kitchen to be a bit dark at night. These were all small things and didn't bother us too much though.
