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.

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.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la visite guidée de la conjointe du propriétaire et de plus elle parlait le français. La villa était parfaite pour nos besoins. Tout était propre sauf la vaisselle que nous avons dû passer au lave-vaisselle car un film de poussière la recouvrait et nous n'avions pas de linge de vaisselle. La piscine était bien entretenue et nous avons pu en profiter. Nous avons été très bien reçus et toutes nos demandes ont été très bien satisfaites.

To Tuscany team comments for this review:25.10.2017
OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your review. We were so glad that you found the villa perfect for your needs. We were sorry to hear that you did not find the cleanliness of the crockery to standard and that you did not find a tea towel. We would have helped you with both issues immediately had we been made aware.
