We stayed here for 5 nights as a part of our tour of Tuscany. It was the most relaxing, beautiful spot we could have imagined. The vista really is as good as the pictures show! The rooms are bigger than expected and have a real authentic Italian feel to them. The cottages have everything you could need and the owners really make you feel at home, bringing fresh coffee, homemade cake and a complementary bottle of their local family wine on arrival. The breakfast is a must; homecooked by Susanna as you sit in the old converted barn enjoying a selection of local breakfast supplies. No question or assistance is too big or small and they can give you lots of tips for trips, restaurants and places to see. Our favourite thing was to buy local meats and cheeses during our day of exploring the local towns and at the end of the day sitting out on the patio watching the sunset over the Tuscan hills whilst drinking a bottle of wine. The pool is a beautiful spot for a day of relaxing and reconnecting with nature. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a few days of relaxation or as a part of a road tour of Tuscany, as most popular towns are relatively easy to get to. I would recommend you have hire car when staying here. It is a little off the beaten track (sat nav wont find it but you can pick it up on googlemaps once you get to Pari), but the rocky drive to the top of the mountain is worth it for the spectacular views you will have. Poggio alla Rocca will always have a special place in my heart as my boyfriend proposed to me here whist the sun was setting one evening. It is an incredibly beautiful spot and shouldn't be missed.
