A small farmhouse between Nature & Culture: surrounded by cypresses and oaks, on a top of a hill, Casa del Poggio is 10 minutes walking distance from San Gimignano which is the most preserved medieval town in all over the world.

The space

The view is the highlight of my house. From my garden you can see San Gimignano as in a real postcards; in May the old panoramic road and the valleys are full of fireflyes. My rooms are decorated with my family "vintage" furnishing: we hold this place since (at least) 16 century

Guest access

My guests have the access to the gardens (tables, beach chairs and hammocks) and to a share living room; they can also use a small kitchen that I arrange in spring/summer.. they can visit (and working in helping us :) our fields!

Interaction with guests

Surely I'll be available for my guests anytime!

Other things to note

We are vegetarian; in our breakfast there's no meat (anyway meat is not absolutely part of our morning meal ;)!

We loved our stay at Margherita's. She was really welcoming and the location is lovely and peaceful but just a few minutes walk to San Gimignano. Breakfast was amazing too!

Margherita and her mother are a superb hosts, we highly recommend to sign in for breakfast. Comfy bed, clean toilet and beautiful surroundings. It was very hot at the beginning of August and a fan was provided which helped to deal with the heat at night. You will be in the country side, so don't forget the 'mosquito lotion'.

What a wonderful setting to relax and enjoy the local area. Margherita was able to give us lots of information on places to visit as well as where to eat including the best ice cream shop!!. We would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area

Very clean and comfortable b and b. Margherita is full of friendly helpful advice about the area. Breakfast was delicious and good value at just €5 each/day. The outside kitchen is useful as there are no kettles in the rooms.

Clean, great size and standard of the room with amazing views, and only few minutes walk from centre of San gimignano. There was nothing we could fault, Margherita and her family are very knowlegeable of the area and always happy to help. Good wifi and free parking. Variety of breakfast available which usually have been home baked or is produce from the farm. Its a home away from home.

Margherita User ProfileMargherita is a superhost.

Due cose mi definiscono perfettamente, l'amore per cultura e natura umane, e la passione per il viaggio, i luoghi, la diversità di contesto. Ho sempre cercato di mantenere viva la mia identità, studiando e camminando sola coi miei libri, finchè.
Ritrovata la mia collina -a San Gimignano- e le mie radici -al Poggio- ho deciso di fermarmi e costruire uno spazio dove poter ospitare persone con la mia stessa voglia di conoscere e muoversi.
Casa del Poggio è per me un progetto di vita, per i miei ospiti una piacevole sosta per il ristoro, per godere dello strettissimo contatto con la natura e per scoprire il fascino di San Gimignano e delle sue campagne.
Quello che faccio è coltivare la terra, produrre buon cibo, buon vino e olio genuino; sperimentare, ideare, ritrovare soluzioni nuove per una vita sana tra tradizione e contemporaneità.
Nel tempo libero, scrivo.
E aspetto voi -con Eleonora, mia mamma, un cane, cinque galline e tre gatti- per condividere e scambiarci racconti, esperienze, saper fare!

Two things define me perfectly, love of culture and human nature, and passion for travel, places, diversity of context. I always tried to keep alive my identity, studying and walking alone with my books, until.
Rediscovered my hill -in San Gimignano- and my roots -at the "Poggio"- I decided to stop and build a space where accommodate people with my same desire to learn and move.
Casa del Poggio is for me a plan for life, for my guests, a pleasant stop for refreshment, to enjoy the close contact with nature and to discover the charm of San Gimignano and its countryside.
What I do is cultivate the land, produce good food, good wine and genuine oil; experiment, create, find new solutions for a healthy life between tradition and modernity.
In my free time, I write.
And I'm waiting for you -with Eleonora, my mom, a dog, five hens and three cats- to share and exchange stories, experience, know-how!
