These holiday homes in Tuscany are in the hamlet of Poggio di Loro, on the Tuscan Apennines, in the centre of the region, which stretches itself out around a castle and a beautiful church whose origins are lost in the mists of time. Documents of 1247 attest to the existence of the castle which, with its tower still inhabited today, reminds people of the power the village had in those days. Walking down the narrow, curving streets, among the stone houses skilfully chiselled by the stone-cutters, one can’t help remaining pleasantly surprised by the care and love of the few inhabitants of this village, who have succeeded in maintaining its charm and energy, in respect of the past. And so one can encounter old stairways, adorned with plants, pots of herbs and pastel coloured flowers, ancient wrought iron railings and banisters, small windows behind which one can catch a glimpse of the brick and wood beamed ceilings, and doors still with their ancient bolts. At 650 meters over sea level Poggio is entirely surrounded by chestnuts, cypresses, pine and oak trees punctured by clearings that offer unforgettable views of Prato Magno and of the gigantic cross that crowns it. Summer days are celebrated by feasts in outdoor places organized by the local shopkeeper and a group of people who love this wonderful village. In this context a big, old, stone building has been renovated with expert attention to details. These three holiday apartments in Tuscany have been created in respect of the past style; the furniture and ornaments do not fail to usher you into the comforts of the past without, however, neglecting modern comforts so as to guarantee a pleasant stay. Poggio di Loro is not only a great place to visit and to live in, but, also, the short distance separating it from Florence, Siena and Arezzo permits programming visits to these magnificent art cities and their surroundings, not to mention Chianti, with its gorgeous wines and cuisine. A perfect place for a holiday in Tuscany, far from the madding crowd.
