In a sunny location among vineyards the "Cantina" is the centerpiece of all activities of PODERE POMAIA. On the lower level of the building the wine production takes place. The modern facilities and the massive stone walls, which remind us to antique Etruscan walls, offer an impressive contrast.

You will learn some old tricks like putting several roses near the vineyard or how to make grape selection. On the second phase you will visit our impressive winery that is built according to the principles of Eco/Green architecture and made with giant rocks that we found here during the building work of the wine-cellar.

The construction method they used to protect the environment is the same used by Romans and Etruscan over 2000 years ago. Here you will learn how to produce wine and everything that concerns its activity in the wine-cellar. An expert will answer all your questions and will be open to advices. After this, you finally get to taste two splendid wines Chianti DOCG and Porsenna IGT sitting and relaxing inside the main room on the top floor of the winery. 

With the wine you will eat a selection of cheese and ham coming from the best Tuscan companies.
While you take your time to taste the flavors of the wine you will have a brief introduction to the world of sommelier's and will receive some tips to reuse in the future. RESERVATION NEEDED - BOOKING DIRECT WITH THE OWNERS.  

The owners also offer COOKING CLASSES. The classes take place in a large kitchen on the top floor of the winery. The classes usually last 4 hours and can be taken either in the morning or in the afternoon every day.

At the end of the class you will receive recipes and tips either on digital, paper format or both. You obviously get to eat what you have prepared sitting, relaxing and chatting at the restaurant.  RESERVATION NEEDED - BOOKING DIRECT WITH THE OWNERS.

Steven Kirby Canadian

10 friends from various parts of Canada gathered at the Villa from May 12 to May 19, 2013. It was a marvellous stay. We enjoyed the comfort of the villa , the grounds, the pool, and eating at the winery was spectacular. Our hosts, Iacopo and Marco, could not have been more accommodating and gracious. We will recommend the villa highly to friends and relatives. Thank you for a wonderful week in Tuscany. We hope to return one day. Steve and Mary Kirby Elgin, Ontario

Reading beneath the "thinking tree" during the day, a quick dip or lunch by the pool, and at night the view from our villa of beautiful Arezzo below, and the hospitality and good humor of the owners, are at the heart of our best memories of Tuscany. All arrangements made by our agency were very efficient, but also friendly and mindful of our needs. Podere Pomaia is a gem.

Norma Hawley, Croydon South, Australia

Our dealings with Tuscan Villas was excellent and we have just had two wonderful weeks at Podere Pomaia in Tuscany. The villa was superb with the most amazing views of the Tuscan hills against the gorgeous scenery of the vineyard. Our stay could not have been more perfect. The Villa itself is spacious and comfortable. The family who run Podera Pomaia could not have been more helpful. We had fresh vegetables delivered to us from the garden, along with the best olive oil in the world. Our party of 6 loved every moment. We also ate in the restaurant there, and took part in the cookery class. I truly hope that one day I will go back to this amazing spot and experience it all again. The close town of Arezzo is also a gem and may be the best kept secret in Tuscany. Norma Hawley Melbourne Australia

Podere Pomaia more than met our expectations. We were warmly welcomed on arrival by Jaccopo and shown to the most beautiful accomodation. The house was well furnished and very clean. The property was five minutes by car from Arrezzo the views from the house were truely amazing. The organic produce, wines and restaurant were outstanding and Anna our hostess very knowledgable and entertaining. It was a wonderful place to stay our every need was truely satisfied, although perhaps next time we might get the pizza oven going! Would certainly recomend this property to anyone wanting to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Amazing property. The farmhouse is absolutely stunning & looks exactly as it appears on the website. The rooms are beautiful & the main areas very warm and spacious. So friendly & service oriented. Iacopo & his family were amazingly accommodating. Great place for a large family- the dining room table was large enough to seat our group of 10 very comfortably. Secluded from everything, but close to the highway & grocery store in town. Would HIGHLY recommended this farmhouse to anyone. We hope to go back there one day.

Lynn Sorrels, Newtown, United States

A wonderful Tuscan farmhouse combining rustic charm and modern conveniences. The location is a working farm and vineyard and is quiet and private yet only a few minutes from town. Arezzo is a modern city but has a charming historic center and has excellent access to the Autostrada and trains to Florence or Rome. Our host Iacapo was gracious, helpful and helped make our stay memorable. Be sure to visit his winery and try his wine! We highly recommend this villa. This was our first visit to Italy and we found the Tuscan Villas website helpful and relatively easy to navigate. We especially appreciated reading the guest feedback: This is especially valuable when booking a property online.

We will never forget our week at your beautiful Villa! Thank you for your hospitality and your many kind gifts, the lasagna dinner when we arrived, the wonderful wine, olive oil and fresh vegetables from your garden. We were so privileged to be invited to your celebration of the opening of your winery and toh ave dinner at your “Cantina”. Not only we did celebrate the 25th anniversary of our dinner group but also Marty celebrated the 40th wedding anniversary as well. We could not have possibly found a better place for both than Podere Pomaia. Thank you!

I don’t have the words adequate to express my happiness and gratitude, but I’ll try…. I knew from reading about others visits that Podere Pomaia was beautiful and confortable and a pleasure to stay at. Indeed, our time here was all that. What I didn’t expect was the hospitality of the owners, the absolute perfection of our reception dinner, and the contentment, the utter joy I’ve felt all week. Thank you for introducing us to the hospitality, passion and tranquillity of Tuscany. Thank you especially for a wedding dinner that surpassed my every dream. I will forever treasure my time at Podere Pomaia and will keep you in my fondest memories.

This Villa is an ancient world suspended in the vivid mediterranean light of day. Found in that tender light of dawn or the yearning light of the evening sunset. The stars,so big,so close are touchable in the mind's eye. Here,more than anywhere else a dream realized.

Stanley Lim, Singapore, Others...

Our whole family (grandparents, uncle, aunt, children and parents) enjoyed our stay at the villa. Iacopo and his wife were very hospitable. We enjoyed the dinner prepared on the first night and all of us loved the baked fruit tarts given to us during our stay there. Our two young children aged 2 and 4 loved the open space and the two extremely friendly and child tolerant dogs - Lola and Rocco. Iacapo was also very generous with the organic vegetables grown on the farm and we truly enjoyed the wonderful fresh vegetables given to us. The service was extremely good, with Iacopo coming personally to the villa each time I called him, be it for advise (like restaurants, tour itinerary) or for assistance (with things like broken lights or more organic olive oil). The villa was most comfortable and spacious enough for our large group of 7 adults and 2 very active young children. My parents especially enjoyed the peaceful surrounds amidst the vineyard, the beautiful view of Arezzo and the lovely sunrises and sunsets.
The service and surrounds were way beyond expectations, even after the expectations to be found looking at their pictures.
Although the villa is located 10mins outside of Arezzo city limits, it is still conveniently located if you drive, very central within Tuscany and even Umbria. It is 15mins from Arezzo train station, 45mins from Montervarchi (Prada outlet), 1hr from Lake Trasimeno and Chianti, and just over 2hrs from Pisa. There's also a supermarket and patiserrie within 10min drive at Pomaia (at the bottom of the hill).

Thank you very much for a fantastic week at your villa. It has been a fantastic week, the villa tha garden and swimming pool totally exceeded all our expectations.

What did you like at the Villa, what was positive? Everything! The location was fantastic and the kindness shown to us by Iacopo was wonderful. The views are amazing and the villa perfect. The wine tour booked for us by Iacapo was wonderful with lunch at a hilltop restaurant. What did you like on our website? It was very easy to use and make our booking with. Also easy to phone you ifwhen I needed to.

We have had a wonderful time. How could we not: this house is wonderful, and we loved learning about its history. The care you put in the house and in the whole property is evident. It was so helpful to be welcomed to the villa our first night with lasagna and dessert. We appreciated your extravirgin olive oil , your wine and the focaccia mid-week. The fresh beans and strawberries were exceptional (it was these extra ,personal touches that made our stay so amazing). We used the Villa as a point from which to explore the hill towns of Tuscany. We enjoyed them all but looked forward to coming home to the sun and the pool (thanks for the fantastic weather!). A very special “Thank you” to you Iacopo, our impeccable host. You have helped make this a memorable trip for all of us.

The views from the villa are amazing. Monica and Iacobo are friendly, welcoming people. It was wonderful to arrive at the villa and see the dining table set up for dinner, with a delicious lasagne, wine, olive oil, cheeses and a pudding. They were always there to give advice or make reservations at restaurants. They also supplied us with organic produce from the gardens and home made foccacia.

Fabulous villa. Attention to detail both inside and out is first class. The property is very private, quiet and relaxing The views of Arezzo are spectacular. As are the views from anywhere on the property. The location was perfect for day trips to Florence, Siena, and Cortona. Be sure to check out the wonderful little markets in neighbouring towns. The owners, Iacopo and Monica are such generous people. The amazing meal that awaited us on our arrival. Their time and advice on places to visit and restaurants to try. They even organized a wine tasting trip for our party to the Chianti area. And with their homegrown produce. We would find a regular supply of freshly picked strawberries and vegetables outside the villa during our two week stay, and the best baked fruit pie ever. We wanted a family reunion to remember, and thanks to their family and their beautiful villa, ours was perfect.

Kirsten Metzger Gilbert, Washington, United States

The pictures do not do the villa justice! It was so pretty and the view of Arezzo was amazing. Monica and Iacopo are the perfect hosts - they made sure we ate well and were always around if we needed them. If you go into Arezzo (which everyone should) there is a great restaurant in the old section on the way to San Francesco square. It's called "Bacco & Arianna"; and is on the left side of the street right before the piazza. Cortona was beautiful and close by! If you follow the wine tour on the villa's website, DEFINITELY stop in Civitella and eat lunch at L'Antico Borgo!

The restaurant on the top; Badia Pomaia was fantastic with exellent food and wine. The prices were a bit high.It was a beautiful surrounding and view over Arezzo. We also made many trips to the top and that was good exercise.We have no concerns we just had a wonderful vacation.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa. The views are amazing and your hospitality was most appreciated, the fresh vegetables, strawberries and cake were delicious as was the welcoming Lasagne wich you kindly left for us on our arrival. One week was certainly not long enough to appreciate the Villa and beautiful surrounding, so we must come back.

Our villa experience was everything we wanted it to be. The location of the villa is great, it allows for easy day trips to other Tuscan sites. The hosts of the villa are excellent and can offer many useful suggestions as far as sightseeing and resturants. We hope to return and relive the experience again. Iacopo and Monica are wonderful hosts and will do what ever they can to make your experience a wonderful one. The setting of the villa is Beautiful and quite private. No concerns to pass on.

The villa is gorgeous. It's clean and comfortable with incredible charm and ambiance. The setting is fantastic and it infuses you with a sense of warmth, comfort and well-being. It feeds your soul. The hosts - the wonderful Monica and Iacopo, feed not only your soul but your palate as well with their scrumptious meals and fresh offerings from their garden. They were so helpful and welcoming and incredibly generous with their time and attention to detail. They provided us a most wonderful, memorable experience. They are a blessing and a treasure. My advice would be to explore the surrounding areas (incredible ancient hilltop towns and scenic drives - including the mountains to the East - particularly La Verna - but to leave suffiecient amount of time to return to Podere Pomaia to enjoy the beautiful experience it offers - watching the beautiful sunsets, drinking in the gorgeous scenery while drinking their delicious wine, and drinking in the incredible beauty the villa and landscape provide. Heavenly!

If you're flying into Florence, you can either rent a car and drive (it will take about 1.5 hours) or take the train to Arezzo and then a cab to the villa. We highly recommend having at least a few cars in your party if you're interested in doing any sight seeing - Cortona and Siena are great places for day trips, but are at least an hour from the villa by car. The train is a great option for guests arriving at different times - also, you won't be able to fit 4 people and their luggage in most rental cars. If you have the option of renting GPS along with your car, definitely do! It cost us about 50 euros for the week and took a lot of the stress out of navigating the local streets.
The villa itself was fantastic - wonderfully restored and very private. Perfect setup for either a group of friends or a family trip. Monica and Iacopo were wonderful hosts, they made great suggestions of restaurants and places to visit. We highly recommend scheduling dinners at the villa. We did one on the night that we arrived that was prepared for us and waiting in the villa - we just had to heat it up and eat - it was great to not worry about what to do for dinner after a long day of travel. We also had a sit down dinner in the "Boghettina" 4 courses with fresh pasta and vegetables from the garden. Grazie!!

Because of the location of Podere Pomaio (wonderful view of Arezzo), it is necessary to rent a car! Villa - beautifully restored, truly Tuscan, rustic, charming! beautiful grounds, private, very reasonable priced. Most gracious hosts - baked several cakes/tortes for us; entertained us with Tuscan pizza and wonderful stories of the history of their farm; delivered freshly-picked fruits and vegetables

Beautiful villa with so much charm. Peaceful setting transformed all 10 of us so much so that we didn't want to leave. Be sure to order a dinner through the owners. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Perfect to do on the way in and last evening.

Exquisite local restaurant with pool just further up the road - run by the owner's brother and well worth a lazy afternoon's visit.
