A seamless balance of modern luxury and authentic rustic style, villas like Poggio Landi are few and far between. Surrounded by a mixture of dense trees and rolling hills, it’s a private refuge, but with a broad selection of restaurants and shops just a short drive away. With a combination of a tennis court, an Italian bowls court a swimming pool with diving board and plenty more, there’s so much to do even if you don’t feel like leaving the grounds. Built in 1820 by a Russian family to celebrate their son’s return from war, Poggio Landi is a truly unique corner of the Italian countryside.
It has a large, shady garden in which there is an irregular shaped swimming pool which has views through the neighbouring olive grove, and a full size tennis court. Also available is an Italian bocce (bowls) court.
Immediately outside the villa is a superb terrace with an iron pergola and plenty of shade from the surrounding pine trees. It is furnished with a heavy stone table surrounded by 10 sturdy iron chairs with cushions. To one side is the barbeque.
To the left of the entrance hall is a bright lounge with a glass and wood door into the garden. The room has plenty of seating with two double sofas and two armchairs. In a corner is a fireplace for the cooler nights. The floor is paved in the traditional Tuscan villa style of terracotta tiles, while the ceiling has terracotta tiles and wooden beams.
A terracotta arch with wooden sliding door, to one side leads into a double bedroom with an iron bed. The room has a large three door wardrobe and a lovely en-suite bathroom with an open, central shower. There is access to the garden and pool area from the bathroom.
To the other side of the entrance hall is an open plan lounge-diner which has a huge terracotta arch across the middle of the room. It has a warm, wooden floor and the traditional ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta. The sitting area is furnished with four matching armchairs and has a fireplace to one side. The large wooden dining table, on the other side of the room, can seat up to 10 people.
An arch off the sitting area leads into the beautiful, modern kitchen which has a large central island where there are the gas hobs, sink and plenty of work space. Along the back wall are the cupboards, oven and more work space, while to the other side is are two full size fridges with separate freezers and an indoor barbeque. From the kitchen a door leads into the garden and outside eating area.
Immediately at the top of the stairs, to the right is a double bedroom with an iron bed. In the room is a triple, hand painted wardrobe. The room, like the rest of the first floor, is paved in terracotta and has a ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta.
Next to this is a twin bedroom, with iron beds. It has a pretty hand painted wardrobe. It can be made into a double if requested when booking. Neighbouring it is a bathroom with shower that these two bedrooms shared.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Poggio Landi!
La maison et les installations (cuisine notamment) sont parfaites.
Tout est juste, il n'y a aucun excès ou oubli.
Nous avons vécu paisiblement et quitté les lieux non sans le souhait d'y revenir.
Les personnes qui s'occupent de la maison sont aux petits soins.
Un séjour très agréable!

Si nous devions cependant mettre en avant les points moins positifs:
- un WC supplémentaire isolé au RDC serait agréable
- la route est parfois longue pour aller faire les courses

A beautiful villa - like an oasis at the end of a long journey, with a warm welcome from Cristina who handed us the keys and showed us round. Poggio Landi had everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The villa was spacious and well-furnished. The kitchen was new and well-equipped. We lazed by the pool most days as it was too hot to do anything else. We tried to play tennis but were frazzled by the heat. The villa has many things to do including a gym, bikes, lots of balls, lots of board games and DVDs. The only drawback to the lovely bedrooms was the lack of air con but this was only because the weather was ridiculously hot (hitting over 40 by the end of the week), although fans were provided throughout the house. The bathrooms were all new and very smart. The outdoor dining table was well used and we used a lovely local lady to cook two delicious 4-course suppers for us, which was a real treat. True, the last road to the villa is not for those with high excesses on their hire cars, but the view from the villa is simply breathtaking. I would recommend it to anyone.
Local attractions Osteria Nonna Gina in Siena was superb - delicious local food served in a family-run and friendly setting. Osteria La Patria in nearby Rapolano Terme is worth a mention for a very tasty, cheap lunch with unpretentious, home-style cooking. You'll probably be the only tourists in there. No frills on the food or the decor but worth a visit. Valeria was the local cook we used - not a word of English was spoken but she knew she was appreciated! Her panacotta and tiramisu puddings were to die for. Pizzeria Il Montino in Pisa deserves a mention - the most delicious carbonara ever eaten. Plus tasty pizzas with very drinkable house red. If you can sit outside, and forgive the distinctly nonchalant service, then this is definitely worth a visit.

Maison décorée avec énormément de goût, un accueil fantastique, une piscine et un court de tennis de qualité et très bien entretenu, le four à pizza et le grill nous invitent à de belles soirées, les repas préparés à la maison par la cuisinière sont succulents...Cette maison est tout simplement parfaite.

We hadden een zalig verblijf met de familie in dit prachtige huis. De kinderen hebben de tijd van hun leven gehad. Zeer veel mogelijkheden om je bezig te houden evenals plekjes op het domein waar je op elk moment van de dag heerlijk kon vertoeven. 's Avonds heerlijk in de zetels met het kaarsenspel, het kampvuur, de eettafel met bbq, het zwembad,... Kortom het verblijf is af!

We loved our stay at Poggio Landi - everything that we could possibly need was on site for our use and entertainment. The villa was a great size for the 9 adults in our party, and all the facilities meant we didn't like leaving the villa for too long! There were great views from every angle and Cristina our host was super friendly and helpful.
Local attractions The nearby tiny village of Rapale was a beautiful walk / run up the hill.. We also made trips to Siena, Lake Trasimeno and the Chianti region - all within an hours drive away. Did wine tasting and a wine tour at the Castello d'Albola vineyard which I'd highly recommend.
