The harmoniously curved ridges that separate the Arezzo region with its Chiana valley from the Siena region are particularly impressive in this region. Small vineyards with quality vines, here and there bordered in wide, silvery-green shiny olive groves, narrow dirt roads winding up into the upper section of the hill and in every curve there are unforgettable views of rarely beautiful landscapes.
The ancient properties, scattered along these traditional paths, fit in perfectly with the surroundings, forming together a harmonious landscape. CASALE POGGIO AL VENTO is one of these properties, it consists of the main house and two lovely haystacks with a romantic veranda. The common room is housed in another stone house with a covered veranda.
Due to the division, this accommodation is perfect for groups who want to spend their vacation together without the individual group or family members having to sacrifice their individual privacy. A cooking service can be organized on request.
At the main house there is an outdoor area with shady trees, a garden pavilion with table and chairs and a brick barbecue. A few steps lower, at the height of the haystack, is the refreshing, completely fenced pool with an adjacent small children's playground, embedded in the green area with shady trees.
The surrounding landscape with magical olive groves invites to take a stroll or to explore with a mountain bike (rental on request). Only about 10 km away is the thermal resort Rapolano with two thermal centers with which the owner has agreed special conditions for her holiday guests.
The private parking space inside the property can be reached via an electric entrance gate.
Jetzt komme ich endlich dazu euch ein Feedback zu unserem Urlaub zu geben.
Eins steht für alle fest, es war einer der schönsten Urlaube, die wir gemacht haben und er wird uns allen, groß und klein, lange in Erinnerung bleiben.
Die Unterkunft war perfekt für unsere Familien. Wir haben bei euch genau das Richtige gefunden. Jeder hat seinen eigenen Bereich und kann sich zurück ziehen, aber es kann gemeinsam feiert, gegessen und Zeit verbracht werden.
Ich finde die Unterkunft kommt auf den Bildern gar nicht so schön rüber, wie sie tatsächlich ist. Das gesamte Anwesen ist wirklich sehr schön und toll gepflegt.
Aber der Service war wirklich nicht zu übertreffen! Sowohl von Donatella und ihrer Tochter, sowie von dir. Selten haben wir uns alle rundum so verwöhnt und wohl gefühlt. Es ist ein super tolles Angebot, dass Donatella für uns kochen konnte. Das Essen hätte besser nicht sein können und wir waren alle sehr begeistert! Egal was wir benötigt haben, es wurde sich umgehend darum gekümmert.
Deine super tolle Organisation für unseren ‚special day‘ war überragend! Alles drum und dran war toll und ein unvergeßliches Erlebnis für alle.
Also ich komme aus dem Schwärmen gar nicht mehr raus und habe schon vielen von meinen Freunden sehr begeistert von unserem Urlaub erzählt. Ich kann nur in den höchsten Tönen loben und wenn es uns irgendwann nochmal in diese Richtung verschlagen sollte, dann kommen wir wieder!
Vielen, vielen Dank für alles! Es war einfach nur toll!

Thanks again for everything you did to help us with our stay in Tuscany. It really was amazing, and we will treasure the memories for a very long time.
Our stay in Tuscany was made an absolute delight, in large part because we stayed here. The set-up was ideal for an extended family and allowed everyone to have their own space, as well as a large and comfortable common space to come together. We enjoyed some wonderful meals while looking out over the amazing view surrounding the home. The pool and jacuzzi were delightful and a welcome place to relax after a day exploring surrounding towns. The location could not have been more ideal—a beautiful rural feel but easy access to beautiful towns such as Pienza, Montepulciano, Arezzo, and Montecino. It was also easy to access supermarkets, and for a quick drive to some amazing meals in a beautiful medieval town, we loved going to nearby Lucignano.
We cannot say enough great things about Monika. She helped orient us to the area and provided excellent suggestions. She also went out of her way to make sure we found the house, staying there until after 10:30 the night we arrived and welcoming us with food, wine, and drinks that were much needed and appreciated. She is a true gem.
We can’t wait to return to Tuscany for a big family gathering and would be thrilled to stay in this wonderful place next time!
Thanks again Monika, we really appreciate it. Hope the kittens are doing well!
