The best location in Maremma – Toscana

Poggio alla Rocca

Staying at the Poggio alla Rocca, a gaze at the breathtaking panorama is dominate, from the Sienese hills to Montalcino, from the Val d’Orcia to Monte Amiata up until sliding into lower Maremma.
One may enjoy an immaculate nature, a sky filled with stars and discover the advantages of the thermal waters just 5km away (Terme of Petriolo).

LEGEND:
The local children – since old times – dreamed of the Fortress of Monte Acuto and fascinated would watch those mysterious ruins ever since the grandparents would tell them the legend, under the archway of a large portal, stooping, one finds a golden hen with her golden chicks….In fact, the legend has it: “There was a mighty King who reigned in the land of Tuscany and ordered the goldsmiths who worked under his command, in order to honor the King’s glory, to make a golden hen with many golden chicks, thus demonstrating that the King was powerful even in the kingdom of nature. The result, a beautiful opera, but the hordes of barbarians, who went down after the death of the King, stole and hid them under the Fortress of Monte Acuto!”

    We had a great few days in Poggio alla Rocca. Upon arrival the first thing that strikes you is the incredible panorama of the rolling Tuscan hills and distant mountains. The whole property is designed perfectly to make the most of this view with a spotless Terrace and Infinity Pool. There is plenty of space even when all the apartments are full, with plenty of comfortable chairs, loungers etc. The hosts were very approachable and helpful and provided a very attentive service including serving coffee by the pool and providing bottles of home-produced wine. The apartment was comfortable and well furnished, but this almost seems secondary because you will want to spend all your time outdoors! Would love to come back, for longer next time.

    Myself, my husband and 2 young children stayed with Susanna and Francesco for a week at the end of August. We stayed in Sughera villa which is (I think) the largest villa/room there. In a nutshell, Poggio alla Rocca is incredible and easily the most beautiful place we've ever stayed. The infinity pool is breathtaking with amazing views - you really do feel like you're on top of the world. Our daughters were in the pool constantly and we had the whole pool area with numerous loungers and shaded areas pretty much to ourselves for the majority of the time there. The whole complex is decorated and furnished to a very high, contemporary standard with great attention to detail. Our villa was perfect for our needs with a small kitchen and sleek modern bathroom. Our girls didn't sleep in the bunk beds as the top bunk lacked a safety rail - not that it was missing but that the design simply didn't incorporate one. Instead they slept on the pull out sofa bed which they loved. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful but discrete and conscious of our privacy. We drank gorgeous free wine from their vineyard and Susanna filled our water bottles from the well each day. We also arrived late after a long journey and she very kindly helped us out with a snack before we went for dinner. Things to be aware of: you definitely need a car and we had great difficulty finding the complex. Susanna came and lead us in from Pari on our first day! It's up a very steep narrow gravel path - not for the faint hearted but you soon get used to it. Also take some insect repellant - we did and we still got munched. Big horseflies and lots of mosquitoes. Entirely to be expected in a fabulous remote place like this but it's best to be prepared. We also had quite a few creepy crawlies in our villa. All harmless but again, be aware that it's in a rural and natural setting. Finally make sure you stock up on supplies as the nearest half decent supermarket is a 20 minute drive away. We absolutely loved staying with Susanna and Francesco. The complex is fantastic - a real hidden gem.

    We stayed at the apartment (Sughera) in early may. When you arrive you are amazed by the view and are still amazed up until the point that you leave. The apartment had a lovely rustic feel, but had modern fitting, furniture etc. also had everything you need for cooking. The pool and common areas very spotless and with so many places within the beautiful gardens, you would never really notice the other guests if all were full. The hosts were very welcoming and a pleasure to chat too. The local town Pari is very picturesque, and only 30 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive. The best views in Tuscany and should be on your list.

    We stayed at Poggio alla Rocca for few days this summer. The place is simply beautiful and relaxing, few kilometres away from the charming town of Pari. The owners are very helpful and and do everything they can to make you feel at home. Wonderful holiday in Tuscany

    We had a very nice time with our 3 kids at Poggio alla Rocca. The view is outstanding, the pool great and the village of Pari has a delicious small restaurant at the first floor. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I can especially recommend the apartments Ginestra and Corbezollo.

    It's hard to describe Poggio alla Rocca with the usually used adjectives for a hotel because you don't feel like being in a hotel, you feel like you stay with friends. The hosts don't consider themselves as hoteliers, they just want to have a great time with their guests and enjoy meeting new people. Thats what makes this place so wonderfully unique. Its not just the impressive view over Toscany with a perfect pool and tuscany style appartements (and not to forget the endless access to the fantastic red wine produced by the hosts ;P). Its more then that - it's a magical place with a wonderful atmosphere which you have to experience!

    If there ever was a pool with a view, this is one. But that's just the icing on a perfect combination of comfort, quiet and hospitality. Susanna and Francesco are the perfect hosts: they are there when you need them, but otherwise let you enjoy the place for yourself, and there is a lot to enjoy if you are into a rural retreat. To be more precise, if the setting is rural, the amenities offered are very urban(e). Also a great place to explore the region from, with Siena at 30 km and the sea at 50, though the best part of the day will always be when you reach your home away from home. We had a wonderful, memorable time.

    Firstly, to stay here a car is essential - do not book unless you have transport. Susanah & Francesco were wonderful hosts: they were always available to assist us but were discreet giving us complete privacy at other times. They added generous touches such as giving us bottles of their own production red wine - delicious! We stayed in the large 3 bedroomed apartment (Sole) which is less than one minute walk to the communal pool area - some may prefer to be in a closer apartment but we liked the feeling of independence just up the road. Our apartment was quite spacious accommodating me, my wife and three teenage daughters (2 shared a large double bed). The accommodation was 'traditional', spacious and clean. All windows had mosquito protection. The kitchen area is small but adequate as we only ate salads, cold meats and cheese at home. The pool and surrounding areas have spectacular views and are finished to a luxurious standard with very high quality furniture and shading along with good outside wi-fi. Tuscany is stunning and this location is great for visiting other towns (Sienna 35mins drive). Favourite places were Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Montereggione and Sienna, of course. All 5 of us would like to return to Poggio Alla Rocca, thank you Susannah & Francesco for your great hospitality.

    My family and I stayed at Francesco and Susanna's amazing Poggio alla Rocca for 8 days this summer. We had high expectations after having read all the great reviews of the place, and we can only say that reality beat the expectations. Poggio alla Rocca is located on a hill top with an astonishing view over the Tuscan landscape. The place in itself is kept to high standards, indoors as well as outdoors, and the pool area, with it's infinity pool, beats everything of what we've experienced after 10 years at various agristurismos across Tuscany. What made the stay even more special was how Francesco and Susanna ensures that their guests enjoy their stay. Every morning they come ask you if you'd like a cappuccino or espresso and bring it to your terrasse or the pool along with home made cookies. In the afternoon they serve ice cream to their guests. They help you with recommendations on restaurants and places to visit. And not to forget, they offer free wine... They're simply the perfect hosts! We highly recommend Poggio alla Rocca to everyone who wants to experience the real Tuscany.
