Enrico and his parents, Susana and Lucio are the best airbnb hosts we have ever met. They truly made us feel so welcome and 'adopted' us into their family. Lucio provided lots of information about what to see and do in the area and gave several recommendations for restaurants. Both Lucio and Susana speak excellent English and were always available and happy to provide assistance when we needed it, for example, talking to people in Italian on the phone. We loved Lucio's 'wicked' sense of humour.
"Il Poggetto"is a stunning farmhouse set in acres of natural and farming land, and although the main road to Areźzo is close, it feels like you are living in the country and is very quiet. The apartment consists of the entire ground level of the house. It is large and very spacious, with a very large lounge and dining room, a huge main bedroom and a second bedroom with twin beds. The kitchen is really large and stocked with all the cooking equipment you could need to prepare meals etc (I was even able to bake cakes and make roast meals while there). There is a fully functioning laundry and washing machine, so you really have all the comforts of your own home when staying here.
We had friends come to stay during time we were at "Il Poggetto" and the space was ample for all of us, so would easily accommodate 4 or even 6 guests, with two people sleeping on the comfortable sofa lounge. There is, actually, only one bathroom though.
The swimming pool is lovely and although shared with the family and occasionally their friends, this was never disturbing (we actually loved meeting and interacting with the whole family). The house is incredibly cool even on the hottest days so no air conditioner was required. There is a large wood fire available for winter.
I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation for anyone who wishes to experience true Tuscan living.
Alla casa vacanze "Il Poggetto" era tutto come ce lo eravamo immaginato, la casa confortevole, la sera intorno al camino con un bicchiere di buon vino rosso Toscano offerto dalla casa, la famiglia Casagni disponibile e premurosa, per noi e per i nostri cani lo spazio esterno è stato una manna dal cielo, lontani dallo stress cittadino ci siamo veramente riposati.
I dintorni sono magnifici e facilmente raggiungibili.
Che altro dire, esperienza da ripetere magari anche in Primavera/Estate.
A very pleasant frame(executive) has the gap from the noise of the road, very relaxing, and the hosts in the small care to satisfy us in all, the apartment of rez of road delighted us, very practical for 3 then 6 whom we were. Commendable without reserve
Thanks Enrico, Suzanna and Lucio, your house was really welcoming and we regret we could stay only one night!
A independant flat, with a big living room, a huge Kitchen well equiped and a beautiful swiming pool (with flowers and Oliver trees around).
We had a really pleasant aperitivo speaking and testing good vine with Lucio and Suzanna.
Merci pour tout et nous espérons avoir l'occasion de revenir bientôt!

Mille grazie to Enrico and his parents, who gave us a very warm welcome and were always helpful during our stay - special thanks for the good restaurant tips!
It's a very spacious apartement with a well equipped kitchen. Even without any Italian language knowledge it's easy to communicate, as Enrico and his parents speak English really well.
A hint for guests from Scandinavia: there are some books in Swedish and Norwegian in the book shelves - if you get time to read them, as there's of course a lot to do and see around Rigutino.
Nous avons été très bien reçu par Enrico Casagni lors de notre arrivée. Il nous avait envoyé l'itinéraire précis pour arriver al Poggetto.
Enrico étant à Milan ce sont Suzanna et Lucio, ses parents qui nous indiqué les beaux endroits à visiter, et qui se sont montrés très chaleureux et toujours disponibles pour nous. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans un lieu très sympathique où tout était prévu pour nous accueillir. Un grand merci à tous et à Enrico pour son dernier mail.
Un endroit à recommander pour visiter la Toscane et le Chianti avec des hôtes adorables et très attentionnés.
Our stay at Il Poggetto, although shor,t was wonderful. When we arrived Enrico wasn't there as he had to be in Florence, but his parents welcomed us with food for breakfast and conversation about the area. They were very helpful in telling us about places to see such as Cortona and Montipuliciano; as well aa=s a small winery nearby where we purchased some wine. We had the entire ground floor of the huuse which is quite large and the use of the swimming pool which was a welcome oasis after a day of sight seeing. There are a couple of cats on the property; which were fine with us, but if you are alergic or don't like cats, this may not be for you. As we had a car, we found the location to be very good for seeing the sights of Tuscany. Thank you Enrico and your parents for making our stay very comfortable and memorable. Ciao Rich and Ann
