TUSCANY AND THE LANDSCAPE
Located half way up a hill and facing South West, Le Poggiole B. & B. is set at the doors of the incomparable landscape of the Chianti region of Tuscany, bathed in the colours and sounds typical of this area, already famous the world over. The surrounding landscape has been depicted in innumerable works and modified by generations of farmers who have combined beauty with usefulness as well as introducing a variety of colours and shapes to the land. The principal view is dominated by the green vineyards of the Sangiovese grape, being the essential element in the production of excellent wines, like Brunello di Montalcino. The centuries old olive groves and the cypress trees complement the setting on the gently undulating hills so typical of this area.
Thanks to the central location of “Le Poggiole”, our guests can easily reach many of the medieval towns and villages to savour the unique atmosphere that characterises them, like San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Certaldo and, not least, the major cities of Florence (35Km) and Siena (40Km).
We shall be happy to advise our guests how best to tour the area and recommend the most suitable itineraries to explore our beautiful Tuscany and return in the evening to the relaxing peace and tranquillity of our farmhouse.
