Poggiacolle is a working farm on a hilltop surrounded by about 25 acres of vineyards and olive groves with magnificent views of rural Italy. We had a room and kitchen that opened onto a terrace with a lovely view to the west. Although modest, the room was clean and comfortable and the price was very affordable. A great pool overlooks the countryside. Breakfast is available, but we preferred it by ourselves on our terrace accompanied by a family of friendly, well-mannered cats (no extra charge). We liked the seclusion and quiet with easy access to the town. Our host, Stephano ... Bartali, lives in San Gimingnano and knows the people. He was gracious, easy to talk with, and very helpful with information about local restaurants and shops. In Tuscany, local people are kind and welcoming but Stephano was especially friendly. One his suggestions, an Osteria owned and operated by a lovely lady and her husband, had wonderful, simple Tuscan food (the best Ribolita ever) and terrific local wine. During two weeks in Italy we stayed at four properties: Poggiacolle, a real farm, was the best. We loved the place and will go back.
