We stayed for a week in June and really loved this place. On arrival the setting and view is just mind-blowing and with the warm Italian welcome from Francesca and Suzanna we knew we had chosen the right place for our stay in Tuscany. The property has been beautifully designed and the outdoor spaces are tastefully decorated with designer outdoor furniture which really made it feel like a small luxury hotel. We loved the infinity pool and the huge variety of outdoor spaces to hang out especially the roof terrace. We spent many evenings up there watching the sunset with a nice glass of wine looking over the valley beyond - pure bliss. Our apartment Sughera was very compact but nicely decorated, small basic kitchen (no oven) but it was close to the pool with a nice grassed outdoor area. We enjoyed a few day trips - Sienna (45 mins); Montalcino (45mins) and Montepulciano (1.5 hours) ... we loved these places and the scenery driving around was beautiful (take the back roads) but were delighted to get back to Poggio alla Rocca at the end of each day. We also had a few days of just chilling at the property and taking it slow which was really nice. Our kids (4 and 6) loved it there and did lots of swimming, hide and seek and walks picking wildflowers. The little village of Pari is very authentic, hardly a tourist in sight - we ate in the village restaurant a few times and the food was great typical Tuscan fare. There is also a very small shop in Pari but best to stock up on supplies before you arrive. All in all we absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend this place.
