Thank you again for giving me the experience of a lifetime. I love the apartment and hope to be back next year again. Vi auguro tutto il meglio! (U.S.A.)
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment immensely - so comfortable -  and loved waking up to the magnificent views & birdsong! Lovely memories created, and hope to return. Aloha! (U.S.A.)

1) Our time here was magical - the evironment, the sheer beauty, the history, the churches, the palazzos... The apartment was perfect for the 4 of us, and your warm hospitality was so appreciated. Thank you!
2) We couldn't say it better than just above; but to add the "olive oil tour" was sensational!...
3) Our visit to the olive grove was the highlight of our trip. Thank you so, so much!
4) We're proud to know you! (U.S.A.)

…Because we have been here a number of times before, we feel perfectly comfortable in this beautiful apartment and with the nice people who live here. We feel at home and we look forward to a future visit here again. (U.S.A.)
…this is our 5th stay with you, and as always we have enjoyed every minute. We have stayed in all of the 4 Giardino apartments, and in Borgo B: each has its special charm, but this one has given us a glorious sunset each evening!... (U.S.A.)
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to have the experience of a lifetime!!! To not only attend school, but to enjoy the beautiful views and the warmest people I’ve ever met in this wonderfully beautiful town. It truly was “heaven in earth”. I wish you all good things and hope to be back! (U.S.A.)
We have spent a fantastic fortnight in apt. 4… Thanks for this wonderful haven, magnificent sunsets and beautiful garden! (Australia)
Graziati dalla pioggia abbiamo trascorso una Pasqua e Pasquetta in allegria, in armonia e anche in ebbrezza: evviva il vino Nobile!...  (Italia)
Your apartments are a wonderful location for trips around surrounding Tuscany. The sunsets out of windows in this apartment are stunning! (U.S.A.)
What a wonderful home away from home…! The apartment is very well equipped with everything we needed. We leave Montepulciano and take home beautiful memories… Your itinerary for day trips was so helpful, and Dominique’s olive oil is superb! Many thanks for a fabulous week. (U.S.A.)
My friends and I would like to thank you for a very nice time in Montepulciano.  The apartments (4 and 1) were perfect and the location in Montepulciano very nice. Thanks for your hospitality.  We look forward to visiting again. (U.S.A.)
This was a wonderful relaxing time for us in a truly beautiful place. We will not forget Montepulciano and hope to return again. Thanks for sharing your home! (U.S.A.)

Dear Elena and Margherita and Giacomo,
thanks for  a wonderful stay in Montepulciano. We had a great time. So much history! (South Africa)

Like  my sisters and their spouses, we enjoyed this loveliest of hill towns! Your location is the best and your accommodation wonderful!...  (U.S.A.)
We have fallen in love with your Montepulciano. Our stay at your apartment was perfect, from the cozy living space to the grand views from every window. We want to return again and again to introduce this jewel to friends and family… (U.S.A.)
Peccato che la vacanza sia finita perché Montepulciano ci è piaciuto molto. Bella la casa, splendida la vista e comoda al centro. Speriamo di tornarci presto! (Italia)
Thank you once again for welcoming us back… I think we’d be happy just looking out the windows. We are smitten! Alla prossima. (U.S.A.)
What a stunning place this is… One week has been nowhere near long enough in this beautiful location so we will have to return!... (New Zealand)
Thank you so much for making my stay in Montepulciano so comfortable. I hope to return again next year! (U.S.A.)
Thanks for such a lovely and peaceful week, we thoroughly enjoyed the apartment & town! After surviving yet another hot sticky, rainy, season in West Africa, I especially loved the cool, fog and fireplace. All was perfect! (Senegal)
... Questa casa ci ricorda che anni e anni fa, come oggi, all’alba si animava di odori, sapori e stagioni diverse. Nelle gite a Siena, Pienza, Sant’Antimo, e qui a Montepulciano, spesso ci siamo sentiti di vivere in un quadro… Per la grande serenità e la pace di questo luogo: grazie! (Italia)
We had a wonderful week here: the area is beautiful and stimulating culturally, the town is friendly and more so after each of our return visits. Your apartments are wonderful (how could you be 3rd on TripAdvisor? There must be a mistake!), and you are wonderful, gracious hosts. Good luck with the new olive oil venture (or adventure)! (U.S.A.)
What a special place you have created here! Our friends from the Il Sasso Language School are all envious that we found such a light-hearted, beautiful and peaceful “home”. And your garden: like no other in town. Thank you for maintaining it so well! (U.S.A.)
…We will always remember our stay in Montepulciano as the highlight of our year in Italy… We are leaving with a new understanding of Tuscany and have truly, irrevocably fallen in love with Italy. We will sing the praises of your beautiful apartment far and wide! (U.S.A.)
Thank you all for such a fantastic time in Montepulciano. We have loved the apartment, the town and the beautiful countryside. The time here has been too short… We will be back! (Australia)
Thank you for your awesome hospitality and your fabulous apartment. It was the perfect combination of old world charm but with all of the modern amenities. We could not believe how fabulously well the kitchen is stocked - you have thought of everything! Too quickly the week has gone by, and we are truly sad to be leaving Montepulciano… (Canada)
Spȩdziliśmi bardzo miłe chwile w waszym apartamencie za co serdecznie dziȩkujemi. Zostaliśmy mile przyjȩci mimo braku wcześniejszej rezerwacji. Wyposażenie apartamentu bardzo dobre. Okolice piȩkne, z przyjemnością wròcimy do Toscani. Polecamy wrzystkim to miejśce. Pozdrowienia! (Polska)

What a perfect week we’ve had! A great apartment, light and spacious; a garden we enjoyed; and easy access to a lovely, charming town. Thank you for a great stay! (Australia)

Your website is so professional and helpful, and it accurately portrayed this beautiful apartment… You have created a special haven for travellers! We hope to be able to come back for another week stay… ( U.S.A.)
What a lovely apartment, in a faboulous area. We were overwhelmed by the beauty of Val d’Orcia! This week gave us an opportunity to rest, relax, and do a bit of touring. We highly recommend the cross-country walk to Montefollonico! (Canada)
Thank you for another lovely place to stay at Poggiolo… We explored the village more this second time, and we had lots of great meals with my sister in apt. 2. Ciao! (Canada)
This was our first trip outside the U.S. and absolutely amazing! The fact that the weather was rainy made it even more important that we had a comfortable place to stay. We did lots of cooking, reading, relaxing and playing games as a family which doesn’t happen often with 2 teen-age boys. Thanks again! (U.S.A.)
…We had a wonderful stay in Montepulciano, visiting old friends and making new friends. This year we shared our stay with A.’s brother & family, and later this year some friends from Canada will arrive: we are sure they will be as happy as we have been! P.S.: the new oil is very good. Congratulations! (U.S.A.)

…I do not want to leave this place! The garden views and the immaculate apartment allowed me to leave in a dream for two weeks “under the Tuscan sun”... (U.S.A.)

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. We had hoped to find in our travels of Italy a special place, a sanctuary for us to rest… and we found it here, in your lovely home (U.S.A.)
…Our stay in this apartment has been wonderful, with many fantastic memories. And the sunsets have been very colourful! Montepulciano is a delightful, very friendly village… (Australia)
Thank you for a memorable, fantastic stay in this great apartment. Bellissimo! (Australia)
We love our spacious and airy apartment on the top floor, looking out over the city and countryside. These four apartments offered a perfect arrangement for our large family to vacation together. Grazie mille per tutto! (U.S.A.)
Thank you for a relaxing stay at your comfortable house, and thank you too for the travel recommendations. We enjoyed exploring Montepulciano again - we were here 20 years ago… (U.S.A.)
We came for a week to work on New Moon, the Twilight sequel, and fell in love with Montepulciano - and your fabulous apartment… hence our decision to stay an extra week! I can’t wait to return with my family, and will tell all of my friends to come and stay. (Canada)
Your lovely apartment and the beauty of Montepulciano will stay with us forever. The food, the wine, and of course the people were a joy for all of us! Mille grazie! (U.S.A.)
Montepulciano is a slice of heaven on earth. The views, the wine, the food - but most of all, the people - will long be remembered and cherished. Mille grazie, il Poggiolo ha un posto nei nostri cuori! (U.S.A.)
… It was such a pleasure to return to your lovely apartment after a day spent at the language school ‘Il Sasso’. It reflects the warmth of the ‘cittadini di Montepulciano’, and of both of you. We hope to return!... (Australia)
Grazie mille! Our week here was special – the food, the wine, and especially our hosts! We cannot wait to return to Montepulciano… (Canada)
Thank you! As a part of a 4 family group staying here, we could not have asked for a nicer arrangement! We have travelled many times together and this was by far the nicest accommodation we’ve had. (U.S.A.)
We truly enjoyed the warmth of Montepulciano. It was also enjoyable to hear the bells chime and watch the birds soar throughout the hills and trees. The view from our windows was spectacular! (U.S.A.)
We are sad to be leaving this beautiful place! The apartment exceeded our expectations – so roomy and comfortable, with everything we needed, and the breathtaking views will live in our memories always… (U.S.A.)
Grazie per averci fatto questa vacanza molto piacevole… Abbiamo parlato italiano ogni giorno! (Australia)
Thanks for a wonderful place to call home! The apartment is lovely, the people so friendly. We look forward to another visit, bringing our husbands next trip! (U.S.A.)
We are so comfortable in Montepulciano, and so comfortable in your apartment! This was our 4th trip here, and we’ll look forward to another in the future! (U.S.A.)

… The apartment was warm, cozy and complete. Our week here was wonderful, and we hope to return! (Australia)
Tuscany is beautiful and Montepulciano is the crown jewel! We also loved Cortona, Siena, Pienza, Castiglion del Lago, Florence, Montalcino, Monticchiello and Rome. Our apartment was a perfect place to return to each evening. Thanks! (U.S.A.)

We’ve had an amazing 3 weeks in Tuscany and have completely fallen in love with Montepulciano and your charming apartment and gardens. We hope to come back again someday… (U.S.A.)
Siamo stati felicissimi malgrado un tempo piovoso per tutta la settimana, e aspettiamo con gioia la prossima volta!... In dieser wunderschön geschnittenen und eingerichteten Wohnung habe ich mich wie zuhause gefühlt… (Deutschland)
…We especially enjoyed birding in the garden and listening to the birdsong at sunrise… We really liked the comfortable beds, well accommodated kitchen and the coziness of the living room. It was really convenient having laundry facilities, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster… We’ll be back! (U.S.A.) 
We have had a most special week here in Montepulciano - our first experience in a self catering unit, and we really enjoyed it… Wine in the garden each evening was a highlight! (U.S.A.) 
It is impressive how much there is to see and to experience here (this is our third visit!) Montepulciano is a wonderful town and Tuscany seems to unfold without end… (U.S.A.) 
Thank you for attending to every detail at Il Poggiolo. Thank you for letting us practice our bad Italian on you. We so appreciate your hospitality and advice! (U.S.A.)
This apartment is really beautiful: we felt like we were perched on top of the world! (U.S.A.)
...Your home and town are lovely! We loved Italy and enjoyed the opportunity to learn about your culture. Thanks! (U.S.A.)
We will have to count on our memory of the cypress trees dotting the landscape, the patchwork fields golden from the afternoon sun, and the smiles of your neighbours as we pass each other during a morning walk… (Canada)
A camera does not do either the apartment or the surroundings justice! Truly a ‘nobile’ place!... (U.S.A.)
We can’t think of anything that would have made our stay in Montepulciano more pleasant or comfortable. We hope to return to this wonderful apartment and this beautiful part of the world again soon! (U.S.A.)
We consider ourselves fortunate indeed to have found you and your fine establishment… Your countryside is beautiful, your people friendly, and your own personal helpfulness warm and wonderful. Thank you so much! (U.S.A.)
Deux semaines merveilleuses… Nous garderons de notre séjour chez vous un souvenir particulier.
…I enjoyed looking out the windows onto the beautiful Tuscan view… I believe some day I will come back, perhaps maybe for my wedding…  (France – U.S.A.)
Daydreams of Montepulciano and our stay at Poggiolo will always bring a smile, even in the thorniest of days. There is no sweeter way to end the day than to have an old lady or man of Montepulciano bid us “Buona sera” as we walk a little street… (Canada)
… The apartment is wonderful, we could not have asked for more. Our only complaint is that our time here was too short! We hope to return sometime soon! (U.S.A.)
… We had an initial thought of the lodging primarily as a point of departure for the big attractions, like Pienza or Siena. It soon became obvious that Montepulciano has a wealth of treasures that make it  the highlight of staying here! We are extremely fortunate to have discovered such a charming and comfortable home… (U.S.A.)
What a wonderful stay for two weeks! The word I would use to describe Tuscany is “magical”. This was a perfect location for all of our travels around the area. We were very comfortable in this apartment and we will remember the views for a long time! (U.S.A.)

... questo Capodanno, in questa casa così accogliente, calda, piena di comodità e con un panorama così suggestivo, vista anche la leggera nevicata, siamo stati così bene da desiderare tutti di ritornare al più presto! (Italia)
Words cannot express my feelings about you and your lovely home... which is indeed a jewel, that stands far above any rental we’ve had. It is so thoughtfully appointed, we lacked for nothing, and looking out at the breathtaking valley is like a dream I’ll always remember and cherish. Coming back is a definite! (U.S.A.)
The apartment was so well appointed, it was just like home... except when I look out to a beautiful mountain view, rather than sky scraper buildings like home! (U.S.A.)
What a pleasure to stay here. Each morning and evening we are able to see the horizon as we never have seen it. The views from this room are remarkable! You have worked hard to preserve your family home, and now offer what you honor to strangers. This is genuine hospitality! (U.S.A.)
We want to thank you so much for our visit to your lovely town. The apartment was fabulous and stocked with everything needed (even a corkscrew for the delicious wine!) This Tuscany area is absolutely beautiful, with magnificent views... (U.S.A. – Denmark)
An excellent spot and a really wonderful home from home from which to continue our pilgrimage of the “Via Francigena”. The country west of here is a firm favourite of ours, and making camp in Montepulciano has made visiting the many romanesque sites easy and real pleasure... (England)
... Our favourite was sitting at the windows & looking at the breathtaking views!... The views, food, side-trips and shops were a “week in paradise”! (U.S.A.)

...Montepulciano is an ideal home base for exploring the city and Toscana. Thanks for your hospitality, and for the care you’ve put into this apartment! (U.S.A.)

What a lovely home away from home. We had everything we needeed as well as a very memorable view!...(U.S.A.)

(Scotland)
... Both the town and apartment were perfect “havens” to return to each day – an excellent base for exploring Toscana. Hopefully we can return again one day! (New Zealand)

Each morning we awaken with sleepy yet eager anticipation of what this day will bring into our lives. It is enchanting, intriguing, beautiful and tranquil... The apartment itself is perfect... By the end of our visit we called it our home, and our hosts friends... We will miss you and Montepulciano. Grazie! (U.S.A.)
Your apartments are wonderful, you have thought of anything we might need. We would love to be able to come back some day, but until then we will recommend your lovely accommodations to anyone visiting Italy. (U.S.A.)
