We loved our stay in Tuscany! And staying at Podere Antico was perfect for our family :-) The only things we miss is that the lady who was working there did not talk english so well, but she was very helpful and always smiling and I would recomend this place to other people who wants to go to Tuscany because it was a fantastic hollyday! Our kids are still talking about going back. Maybe some other time :-)

Very nice place. No problems ever. Very hospitality familie.

Georgia Limmer, Alderley, Australia

We loved that we could have a BBQ in the daytime, and the fireplace at night. Lovely spot for a relaxing holiday.

08 November 2008

The Casentino Valley is a great place to slow down-- eat well -- and soak in history and culture. There is a wide range of eateries, activities, and places to visit. 28 Castles, small focused museums, etc. make it a great place to be. Fall foliage is beautiful. A bit of Italian is good-- this is a non tourist area. Be prepared to take a three hour lunch break-- the whole valley shuts down for mid day meal and rest. There is a 5Euro guide to the valley that is a must for long stays. Check out the water mills-- running on wate power since 1548. Visit the barrell making museum, and the little castle towns to get the feel of life in the past.Incredible views, within walking distance of Poppi-- a great little town with every shop you will need. Public transportation is limited, but adequate-- a car is really needed to tour the villages and hills. 50 km from Firenze, 20 km from Arezzo.

The apartments were very nice but the view looking out over the pool was fantastic, a vista that you never tire of. Simonetta was wonderful - our Italian wasn't good and neither was her English but we managed and she was very accommodating and just a lovely woman. Lovely little sandwich bar with fantastic freshly squeezed orange juice and wonderful latte's right at the top of Poppi next to the castle. Parking is right next to it.

Simonetta was very sweet and helpful, as was Sara when she was there, but their English skills made communication a little difficult. The entire property was quite beautiful it was lovely.........thank you......kf

Excellent restuarants,good services nearby and beatiful scenery

24 August 2007

The villa was located in an amazing location with spectaular views. Any questions we had were easily answered by the owners. The accomodation was very comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. Restaurant CASENTINO near the castle in Poppi was brilliant

29 June 2007

Simonetta and Nicoletta made our stay extremely pleasant. We were very happy with the villa and the surroundings. It was a true Tuscan experience and very central to do all of our day excursions from Poppi to places like Pisa, Lucca, Florence, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Greve in Chianti, Siena and anywhere else you could possibly want to visit. When we departed on Saturday morning, I was in tears because I did not want to leave, even though we were driving off to Venice. I will definitely use your services and maybe even this very villa again in the future. There are so many beautiful places to visit in Tuscany I wish I could make it my permanent home. Thank you so much Thomas for your personal attention and consideration in making our holiday the best vacation we have ever had!

The villa is beautiful. The town Poppi is handy with everything we needed.

mary McAteer, Indianapolis, United States

Simonitta (forgive me if I spelled her name incorrectly) was so gracious and a wonderful hostess. The grounds, the apartments were meticulously maintained and so incredibly beautiful. Coming home to the fragrant roses was a beautiful treat. Poppi and Ponte Poppi were so close that we lacked nothing. Tuscano is more beautiful than I imagined and more beautiful than any picture or painting.

The owners of Antico Fio were most excellent in their friendliness, hospitality and service. They made our stay very enjoyable in every aspect. The accomodations were very comfortable, very clean and very well maintained. It was an absolutely wonderful place to find peace and rest. We intend to return there when we have the opportunity again.
