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.
