Here you stay in Tuscany's heart amidst some of the most beautiful countryside in a region that is rightly known for its picturesque scenery. Everywhere you look, vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, small villages and medieval churches meet the eye.
You will be surrounded by wine history here since the oldest parts of Fattoria Pogni date back to the 1300's with a rich wine making past. The buildings are most evocative and especially the vaulted cellar. Today, the buildings are still used for both the production and storage of wines (they make six different types), the owners' villa, a few rooms and six apartments for rent on a weekly basis. You can buy the wines that are made here and enjoy them on your own terrace whilst overlooking the hills and vineyards.

Here you will find much to keep yourselves busy, from trips out and about seeing the countryside and surrounding towns in the Chianti District, and at the farm. There is a gymnasium, a large 20 x 8 metre pool which is open all year (cleaned with salt), a tennis court (artificial grass), a small football pitch, a volleyball court, table tennis and mountain bikes for hire. For shopping, you will find the nearest small restaurant just 1 km away in Marcialla and many more 4km away in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa.
It's hard not to be impressed with the standard here. The decor of the apartments will we leave to the pictures to illustrate, but we can add that all have a private terrace with garden furniture and are equipped with air conditioning, hairdryer, a safety deposit box, a dishwasher, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, "Danish" coffee maker and well-equipped kitchen facilities.

Fattoria Pogni with Massimo as host is just simple and fantastic.
Everything is well maintained: the apartments, the rooms, the terrace. And for our part, the lovely balcony at our room that had shadow in the morning, so the breakfast could be enjoyed with a beautiful view. Fresh and cold spring water for free during our stay. A lot of activities to enjoy as well. We were a couple on vacation, but the place is excellent for kids as well. Don't miss out on their fantastic wine cellar and the wine tasting.
