Poggio alla Pieve is located at a vantage point between the Tuscan rolling hills just 700 metres from the small community Pieve di Santa Luce. The old farmhouse dates back to the 1700's and once was the home of a noble Florentine family.
Today, the house has been nicely renovated with modern day conveniences and technologies - for example, water is heated using solar power. All apartments are equipped with air conditioning, which can be used for a surcharge. The garden has a nice swimming pool and a small freestanding children's pool which is more like a bath. Families with children will find that it is a family friendly environment and young visitors are likely to end up playing with the owners children - Ovidio and Mascias. There is a small children's playground with a slide.
