Fattoria Poggio Alloro
The agriturismo consists of one apartment and ten rooms in Tuscan style, each with a private bathroom and shower. In summer, our guests can chill out in the swimming pool overlooking the towers of San Gimignano, while in winter a cosy fireplace will keep you warm, either in the breakfast room or in the main room.Mornings are sweet, with a glass of fresh milk provided by our two dairy cows, a slice of breakfast cake still warm from the oven, homemade jam, fresh fruits and much more.
The panoramic terrace, with its tables and umbrellas, is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, a book, or a simple moment of relaxation.
During the day our guests can explore the farm, or visit the numerous historical and natural sites that Tuscany has to offer. Siena, Florence, Montalcino, Pienza, the Chainti region and many other towns and cities are within easy reach, thanks to the perfect location of the farm.
Throughout the day activities such as tours of the farm, wine tastings, and lunches create a lively atmosphere. In the evening dinners are always served at long tables, so that all our guests can eat together, share a bottle of wine, have fun and relax while tasting our specialties.
We do require a reservation for the restaurant, both at lunch and dinner.
Our rooms are simple and furnished according to the Tuscan style and taste. Each room has a private bathroom with shower, bed linen, towels, pool towels, hair dryer, free Wi-Fi, heater/AC. Some of the rooms are also supplied with a safe.
We do not accept animals.
At Fattoria Poggio Alloro you have the chance to taste our family recipes, and many local dishes and specialties that belong to the Tuscan culinary tradition. We usually cook with seasonal and organic products that come directly from the farm, all the dishes are always accompanied by the wines that we produce and bottle.
Everyday we serve what we call "light lunch" that usually consists of bruschetta, pasta, fresh green salad, pecorino cheese, prosciutto, salami, red and white wine, and a sweet end with vin santo and cantuccini cookies. For dinner we have a fixed menu that changes day by day and which always includes four courses starting with a large selection of appetizers, pasta or soup, meat with side dishes, dessert, and of course vin santo and cantuccini, coffee, grappa, and limoncello. Needless to say, wines won't be missing! Some of the main local dishes that could be served for dinner are the Tuscan ribollita soup, fresh homemade pasta, tomato soup with basil called pappa al pomodoro, stewed beef, wild boar, and many other recipes of the Tuscan tradition. The famous Florentine steak is generally served on Saturday nights. We always serve dinners on long tables, so that guests from different countries can all eat together; in summer we set the tables on the veranda with view of San Gimignano, while in winter we use one of the rooms with a fireplace.
