FAMILY-RUN RESTAURANT, with typical courses from the Tuscan tradition, prepared exclusively with local products and organic vegetables from our farm. Indoor dining room and outdoor panoramic loggia.
Our holiday farm is located right in the center of Tuscany, in a beautiful position on a hill on the left side of the river Arno, in front of the typical medieval town of Laterina.
Set amidst gentle hills, it offers a breathtaking view that goes from the Arno river valley to the Apennines. It is an ideal starting point for trips to the most renowned cities in Tuscany and Umbria. Arezzo is just 15 km away, Siena 45 and Florence 60. San Gimignano, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi and many other art cities are also near just like Chianti, Valdichiana, Casentino and Lake Trasimeno.
The holiday farm has been recently painstakingly restored and now retains all the classic architectural aspects of old Tuscan dwellings (cotto or stone floors, oak beams, bricks arches), but it was also endowed with a touch of modernity that makes the reconstruction even more fascinating. All the apartments have their private entrance, a garden for outdoor dining and a reserved area by the swimming pool. The main farmhouse consists of 5 apartments, while the smaller house, the Cottage, hosts other two. The Cottage is also an ideal dwelling for groups, because it is completely independent and surrounded by a big private garden.

The Tuscany region
The Upper Valdarno is a large natural trough, enclosed by the mountains of Pratomagno and the Chianti Mountains. In the Middle Ages, the valley was long disputed between Florence and Arezzo, and today its provinces are divided between the two capitals. Numerous archeological finds of Etruscan and Roman period bear witness to the population of these areas already in the Archaic period.
The Valdarno has many landscapes, the high slopes of Pratomagno and the main storical centers of Montevarchi, San Giovanni Valdarno and Terranova Bracciolini. Many sites to visit, the Cassia Vetus, the ancient road that connected the lucumony of Arezzo to Fiesole, "The Cliffs", a spectacular landscape with beautiful clay erosion. Along the road "Setteponti ", the Roman Bridge Buriano of 1200. Leonardo da Vinci himself, excited at the sight of these places, chose them as the background of his most famous work, the Mona Lisa. Places of interest are also Parish Church of St. Peter in Gropina (National Monument), Laterina, Montozzi Castle, Cennina Castle, Montebenichi, Bucine, Il Borro, Galatrona tower, the Nature Reserves, The Park of Cavriglia and "The woods of Friars", the Botanical Rose Garden Fineschi, the Monumental Arboretum in Moncioni, the Museum of Paleontology of Montevarchi.
The area is full of nice restaurants that offer either the typical Tuscan cuisine or Pizza.
Supermarket, bank, pharmacy, food stores and grocery are in Laterina and Pergine Valdarno only 3 km from the house. More stores and a supermarket are in Levane, while Ipermarkets and every kind of stores are in Montevarchi and Arezzo.

"Beautiful location, great facilities and friendly hosts!"
We really enjoyed our time at Poggianto! It was the perfect basis to explore Tuscany - a short drive away from Florence, Siena and the hill towns. The house is also within walking distance of a lovely stretch of the Arno river. The apartment is like new - and absolutely spotless. The children loved the pool! We thank Marina and Alessio for their friendliness and hospitality!

"A relaxed, remote-feeling place, with easy access to interesting places"
We were welcomed and shown around very nicely, and when we needed anything the owners were very quick to do all they could. It was phenomonenly hot when we arrived, and Alessio went straight out to buy some fans for our bedrooms when we said we couldn't cope with the heat. There are seven apartments at this property, and because of the layout, you can be as private as you like, and stay on your own veranda or invite people over; At the swimming pool, each apartment has its own set of loungers and shades: I found this a bit proscriptive at first, being told where we had to sit, but in fact it worked very well and made things more relaxed, because there was never a scramble for loungers. People got to know each other at the pool, and there was a quiet friendly atmosphere which allowed for chat or not, as you pleased. The apartment was very spacious, though the upstairs bathroom was on the small side, and was very clean and neat, with plenty of areas to sit in, and to entertain if you wanted to. Our main problem was with the beds - they were incredibly hard and we all, even the children, got backache. We also needed more pillows: only one thin one each felt not very luxurious. The kitchen was well designed and equipped, though we did need a couple of wooden spoons, as there was nothing to stir food with properly! The location is great: the little village of Laterina is great to visit for little shops and a coffee in the morning; Arezzo is not far away, and it's less than an hour to Siena. You get to the property by driving for five minutes down a dirt track, so it feels quite wild, and there is a lovely view when you get there. It was a nice touch having a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival.
We are very sorry that our guest did not find the beds comfortable, because the mattresses are new and of excellent quality. No other client pointed out this discomfort. More pillows are at disposal on request and we'll be happy to supply them if needed.
