Poderi Arcangelo is an old olive farm and vineyard whose stone buildings are renovated for "agritourism." It is set in the beautiful Tuscan landscape, with a modern swimming pool overlooking the fields of grapes. The pool softens the rustic lifestyle and was so enjoyable on the hot summer days. We stayed in a former hayloft, which meant our bed was upstairs from the ground floor where our children stayed. We were travelling with another family and they had the adjacent suite.
None of the guest rooms have refrigerators, although a small one is available for shared use in a nearby building. Air conditioners are installed in the rooms but turning them on costs an additional 6 euros per day (like having a pay toilet in your room). The alternative is to sleep with windows open and be eaten by mosquitoes. The evening meals were OK in quality and variety but quite expensive and had to be ordered ahead of time. The poderi does not sell drinks during the day and the staff takes a siesta after serving sandwiches at lunchtime (they must also be ordered ahead of time).
Only the location is ok.
Services are very poor, in fact we had to wait even for check-out. Also breakfast couldn't be called a breakfast, tablecloth was very dirty, room very poor, definitely can't be called a four star villa.
The views were amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful
The rooms were terribly cold at night (mid February), and the breakfast was pretty meagre
Hotel apartments authentically Italian with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Lack of public bar area, restaurant (only opened if 6 or more guests dining), poor selection at breakfast time. Slightly isolated with very few facilities on site.
unique location, surroundings, calm and quite, concept, location, view, accommodation
some front-desk staff, lack of customer orientation, poor breakfast (room, quality, setup and cleanliness)
In a beautiful setting with wonderful views. Staff all very friendly & helpful.
The double room in converted barn we had was large, but due to design no clear outlook from windows or place to sit eg. balcony.
location-spacy room-very quiet during night-nice place to have breakfast
The place was beautiful. The staff was friendly. The room was very clean and beautiful. The breakfast was great. The home made wine was delicious! Everything was wonderful.
Most of the staff didn't speak English which was a little hard for communication. It was a little hard getting there, better directions would have helped. But after we got there it was worth every minute.
staff very friendly; food very tasty; position beautiful, over hills.
Beautiful Location & Friendly Staff
Rooms were small
