Description

Nestled in the breathtaking Tuscan countryside, Poggio Rosemary offers splendid views of the vineyards and olive groves of the Chianti hills. The villa itself was originally a casa colonica or farmhouse, and formed part of a farmstead which has existed on this site since the 12th century. Despite its secluded hilltop location, the villa is only a short distance from some of the most beautiful and celebrated towns in Italy including Florence, Siena, and Pisa as well as San Gimignano, Volterra, Pistoia and Lucca.

The villa has undergone several renovations over the centuries. The most recent, carried out with meticulous care around twenty years ago, lovingly restored the structure and its many distinctive historical elements to their original glory. Vaulted ceilings, hand-made Florentine terra cotta pavers, and chestnut wood beams all bring the history and graciousness of the region to life.

The villa's elegant yet cozy rooms combine old-world charm with the latest

Either way, authentic local wines, cheeses, olive oil (including extra virgin olive oil pressed on site) and other products are available in nearby markets and groceries for guests who want a taste of true Tuscan cuisine. Poggio Rosemary also offers wonderful opportunities for further relaxation with its fitness center and saltwater pool. Mountain bikes are available for guests to explore the glorious Tuscan countryside all around.

With its peerless views and delighful amenities, Poggio Rosemary offers the opportunity for the vacation of a lifetime. We look forward to welcoming you to Tuscany!

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Montespertoli

Montespertoli

It is an Italian town of 13,331 inhabitants, among the largest in the province of Florence. Its territory stretches from Chianti, Val d'Elsa and Val Virginio. There are many Florentines who come to live in this town because it is relatively close (20-25 km) and, at the same time, allows you to live away from urban pollution and a unique natural environment in its beauty. In an area that preserves traces of Etruscan and Roman, the first reliable reports of the first urban areas date back to the 'eleventh century. Slowly, however, the village of Montespertoli took over for the best location as a place of exchange and market and main urban center of the area. In 1393 the property of the village (and by nearly two-thirds of the territory) passed by the Lords of Montespertoli the Machiavelli family. Over the centuries, the history of the area were related to various noble families of Florence that had agricultural properties (the Machiavelli, the Acciaioli, the Guicciardini, Frescobaldi ...). In the nineteenth and early twentieth century they were joined by new families of Italian and European bourgeoisie: the Sonnino, the Milani, the English writer Osbert Sitwell ...

During the Second World War the town suffered severe damage to the passage of the front (1944) .

“Outstanding!”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2015

My husband and I love traveling in Italy and have stayed in Tuscany several times. Poggio Rosemary is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Location is perfect--middle of Tuscan countryside, but convenient to Florence and other towns like San Gimignano (which is beautiful!!). The furnishings were very high quality--nicer than what you usually see in rental properties. There was plenty of room for my husband and me, our two daughters and my parents. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking in, but I have to admit we ate out most nights because of the terrific restaurants in the area. Would definitely recommend C'Era Una Volta on the road to San Gimignano. There is also great gelato shop in the nearby town of Montespertoli called Gelateria Fiorentina. I would really love to go back when we can use the pool which is beautiful. The owners were very nice and helpful and made our stay very pleasant.
