About this listing
The B & B Poggio a Mandria is set in a beautiful olive grove of about seven hectares, within the homonymous farm; in the farm we cultivate olive trees and vineyards from which we produce extra virgin olive oil and Chianti wine.
It is the gateway to the Chianti, and this is a good base to reach the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany (Arezzo, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra) in less than an hour. On the surrounding hills there are medieval villages, which offer visitors a charming atmosphere of the past and the opportunity to take walks in an unspoiled countryside. It’s an ideal place for anyone wishing to spend relaxing moments and relive the simple and natural values of rural life.

Other Things to Note
Guests can taste extra virgin olive oil and Chianti wine produced in our farm.
This is a perfect villa to rent if you are looking for a very clean, well equipped property that is centrally located in a Tuscan hill town. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful this place is! Our family took day trips to Venice, Florence, Siena, Cinque Terre, Lucca, Pisa, Volterra and San Gimignano, and loved returning to "our villa" at the end of the day to relax, swim, and take in the views. Claudia and Leonardo are very kind and gracious hosts, and provided thoughtful touches throughout our stay, from breakfast items when we arrived, wine and olive oil that they made, to baking a delicious strudel when our daughter developed a fever. We hope Poggio a Mandria is available when you are booking your trip, as it was truly a memorable part of our holiday.

We spent two beautiful weeks here at this lovley house!! Claudia and Leonardo sure take care of this place, everything is clean, nice and organist. If we had any questions or wish they made sure to please us. You have a lot of space in the sleeping room and the beds are also very comfortable. There child and dog friendly which means a lot. We we're able to relax and enjoy this place. The garden with the nice view over the olive trees is just priceless. Its very calm you only hear birds. Its also easy to reach different beautiful villages like Radda in Chianti by car. There a couple of restaurants near by that have really good food. Also the grocery store is only about 8 min away and has everything you need. This house is a place we will return someday. We didn't wanna leave. Thank you again for everything. Highly recommended.
If you're looking at this B&B now I would suggest you book it before you lose the dates you're wanting to stay here. Claudia and Leonardo are extremely friendly and gracious and did everything to make our stay a very welcome one. This B&B is in a beautiful location, surrounded by a breathtaking landscape that goes on for miles. It's cute, quiet and quaint, away from the bustling city life which is a great relief. Its unfortunate we only spent the night here and didn't have much time to really appreciate the area but Claudia helped us enjoy our short time here. She was up early to have breakfast started for us and checked on us every so often to make sure we had what we needed to get our
I can't think of a more perfect location for a B&B. Hosts are wonderful, house is gorgeous, excellent nearby restaurants, what else can one ask for? Train station very convenient for a day-trip to Florence.
Hôtes exceptionnels!! De bonnes personnes, très accueillantes, généreuses et intéressantes. Maison magnifique dans un endroit idyllique. Chambre très confortable! 2 resto et une petite épicerie accessible à pied. Situé loin en campagne mais bien situé et assez central lorsqu'on a une voiture. Petit déjeuner très bon. Une expérience globale des plus agréable.
We had a great stay with Leonardo and Claudia! They were lovely hosts, and their property is in a beautiful setting amongst a large olive grove. The room and bathroom were gorgeous as well, with beautiful woodwork.
