Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

San Donato in Poggio

Travelling on the motorway link that leads from Florence to Siena, after passing the diversion for Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, you reach the junction for San Donato in Poggio, a welcoming historical village (23 km from Florence – 35 km from Siena), where you arrive after 5 minutes on the Municipal road to Castellina. San Donato in Poggio is located at an altitude of approx. 400m, on one of the most delightful hillocks in the heart of Chianti, a well-known region for its good wine and olive oil, but also for the simplicity and friendliness of its inhabitants as well as for its abundant fauna.

San Donato in Poggio has Roman origins: a castrum militare in defence of the Cassia consular Roman road, that coming from Siena on the ridge of the hills passed through the Pesa valley. In the IV century, the soldiers of the garrison, who were Christians from Arezzo devoted to their holy bishop, called their fortress “San Donato”. In the Middle Ages it is called San Donato in loco poci, later San Donato in podio and finally San Donato in Poggio.

San Donato in Poggio is now a hamlet of the Town of Tavarnelle (since 1895), but it was an independent town until 1774. The castle of San Donato, like the one at Tignano and that of Barberino Val d’Elsa, formed an almost impassable Florentine offensive and defensive barrier.

Very well preserved, still visible today are the boundary walls of the ancient fortress – referred to in documents dating back to 989, 1038, 1090 and various others – as well as the Guard Tower (Torrino) and the little alleys inside the castle (via dei Baluardi, via dei Fossi) onto which the houses leaning against the wall open.

San Donato in Poggio deserves an attentive observation from which the imagination conjures up visions of epic battles, fought in the surroundings countryside, between the lords of Florence and those of Siena. Here at San Donato, the Florentine men at arms concentrated to attack the Siena troops, and it was exactly here that the Florentine soldiers joined forces for the battle of Montaperti (1260) mentioned by Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy. San Donato is remembered for having been chosen twice (in 1176 and in 1265) as the place where peace treaties were stipulated between the two rival Republics of Florence and Siena.

Today, however, everything inspires feelings of peace and serenity. The Porta Fiorentina (Florentine gateway), the marvellous Romanesque church, the Santuario della Madonna di Pietracupa, the Chiesa della Compagnia and the surrounding landscape make this hamlet truly well worth seeing.

The Romanesque parish church called Pieve, with three aisles and three apses, was built outside the boundary walls and dates to about the year 1000. In the church are kept a lot of art treasures, such as the baptistery made by Giovanni della Robbia (1513) and a crucifix by the Giotto School, ascribed to Taddeo Gaddi. In the inner part of the castle, the Malaspina Square, with its octagonal well, is surrounded by the Magisterial Palace and the suggestive Malaspina Palace, which has been recently renovated and it is currently home to interesting artistic and cultural events.

“A perfect Stay!”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2014

In viaggio per lItalia quest'anno abbiamo riscoperto le bellezze della Toscana, una regione dai mille volti e sorprese! Per fortuna le sorprese non sono mancate ed accolti da un clima sereno e tranquillo ci siamo imbattuti nella Compagnia del Chianti trascorrendo una settimana indimenticabile a cavallo del vecchio e nuovo anno. In un struttura di nuovissima costruzione ma dai canoni classici toscani, abbiamo trovato un'accoglienza formidabile unita alla vita tranquilla di un antico borgo medioevale ( San Donato in Poggio ). A pochi chilometri da Firenze, Siena e San Gimignano la casa vacanze ci ha dato la possibilità di visitare senza fretta e lunghe distanze l'arte, la natura, il cibo, le terme, la cortesia, il vino e la storia di una delle regioni più belle d'Italia. Ringraziamo di cuore Giada e la sua famiglia, che ci hanno ospitato e consigliato assistendoci per qualsiasi necessità. Consigliamo a tutti di riscoprire la nostra Italia partendo dalla natura e dalla voglia di fare tipica degli abitanti di questi luoghi.... dove guardare il cielo e le stelle nelle tranquille notti vi lascerà senza parole! Dario e Martina
