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 place - wish we'd booked for longer"
We were a party of 5 (married couple + 3 grown up daughters) that stayed for 8 nights in the "Verde" apartment in late August. The Poggianto site had the feel of being deep in the countryside, though in fact only 10 minutes drive from the village of Laterina which has a reasonable array of amenities - supermarket, osteria (pub/restaurant), and other shops. The location of the site was lovely - high on a hill overlooking a typical Tuscan valley on one side, closely wooded on the others. The ancient town of Arrezzo is a little over 30 minutes away with beautiful churches, an enormous hypermarket. The famous and wonderful city of Siena just over an hour's drive distant.
The apartment had a good large living room combined with kitchen, a master bedroom with ensuite shower/WC, a second bedroom with 3 beds and a separate bathroom. The hosts took good care of us, with a bottle of wine and water already in the fridge when we arrived. The apartment was very clean and modern in its fittings, while also having a lot of traditional character. We used the shared laundry facility and the pleasant swimming pool area. A bread van calls 6 days a week with a good chouice of fresh bread and pastries
We had a very good time there - and would unhesitatingly recommend to other families wanting to holiday in the Tuscany region, especially if their focus was on chilling out rather than travelling to a large number of cultural sites.
* Welcome and ongoing service provided by the hosting couple who live onsite.
* Clean and well equipped apartment.
* Peaceful and attractive countryside location.
* English instructions for finding the apartment could have been a bit clearer - eg. making specific reference to the name of the church "Santa Maria del Vella".
* The location in Eastern Tuscany is quite a long way from many of the most famous tourist attractions - so if you want to a lot of time visting places like Florence, might want to consider another rental.

"Un petit coin tranquille en Toscane près des belles villes"
Environnement superbe avec vue sur la campagne - isole et peut être un peu difficile d'accès mais c'est ensuite la tranquilite - propriétaires charmants et très a l'écoute - prix un peu élevé mais l'aménagement de l'appartement et la propreté sont très bien - bien situe par rapport aux villes toscanes comme Florence, Sienne, Arezzo, Perouse
La route a été entièrement rénové avec du ciment et il est maintenant tout à fait facile.
