Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, clean and comfortable room. Our stay could not have been more pleasant. Owner takes great interest in our comfort and care, being very helpful in anything we needed.
Exceptional kindness of staff No
This is a great family run hotel that I have stayed at before. The people are wonderful, the breakfast good, and the location is hard to beat! I have no complaints about the hotel at all. I'll stay there next time I'm in Pienza
Well located - Parking is somewhat confusing -
friendly staff, good breakfast
the personel was very polite and helpful.the food was very good our room was spaceous , clean and well decorated. it was the best hotel that we had during our visit to northern part of italy.
Perfect location in the middle of Tuscany/Pienza. The possibility of relaxing by and having a swim in the outdoor pool in between visiting Pienza, other nearby towns and the countryside. It was crowdy by the pool and not enough sun chairs. We would prefer a larger pool area.
Almoust nothing.Only the localization was good. Cleanliness? The don`t know what does it mean!!!! Everything was dirty!!!! The rust in the bath; problems with outflow of wather. Window were so dirty, that we couldn`t see almoust anything. The dust was everywhere: on the wardrobes, table, TV set... It was the most expensive hotel, we were during our 2 weeks journey and I`ve never seen such dirt!!!! The pivate parking!? It wasn`t closed for a night, and had no cameras!!! I would never come there again!!!
Close to Pienza village. Good morning breakfast. Easy to find. Adaquate parking. Hair dryer in bathroom was not working well.
Everything very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful Breakfast was poor. Room lighting was inadequate in sitting area.
Local very pleasant with big room, except that the room was cold the rest was ok. Cold room due to the location ., no chance to get sun
Friendly staff, clean and large room and very close to the city center of Pienza. It was not a luxury resort but a nice place (with a kitchenette, king size bed and great shower). A great facility and I would stay there again with my family!
The hotel is ideally situated, 150 meters from the historic heart of Pienza. There is ample free parking in the garage, but this is a bit dark and scary at night. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is adequate.
Nice, helpful staff. Room was big and clean with antique furniture and newly re-done decor. Breakfast was a nice European style breakfast including ham, cheese, boiled eggs, a variety of breads, and fruit. Hotel is well-located just outside the gate to the old city of Pienza. It was nice stay in a lovely hilltop town in southern Tuscany. Nice parking garage available free of charge. No, all good!
We enjoyed Pienza,the historic buildings and the elegant old chiostro and its excellent restaurant with beautiful views
In English: The building is beautiful, the hotel is very inadequate. Staff was uncaring and rude. Room was neither luxurious nor pleasantly simple. Price was too high.
The peace of the sorroundings
Staff Claudia is fantastic, very simpatic, she help us in our continue trip in other cities near Pienza ( Montalcino, Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, ....)
the excellent food
friendly and accomodating hotel staff and beautiful decor of hotel; incredible price through your website
hotel evening meal menu was a little expensive and the reception desk area could be improved.
location exellent, building and town historical, view from the room beautiful
friendly helpful staff , good facilities , good location
Great location, historic site. Hotel was clean but a bit tired for the price. Still worth the visit.
Tenant friendly, charming setting, small village with friendly people. Nice rooms overlooking the square. Good food at the restaurant.
The bed was comfortable and the staff were nice and helpful. The location was good, away from the other busy towns (in a small, quiet town). The breakfast could use a better selection, breakfast should include (but did not) some bread, fruit and cheese.
very pleasant Tuscan hill town unspoilt location in a typical, old, building of character, comfortable room, good staff and breakfast, return visit. No lift no aircon
Charming small hotel in hilltop village. The only bar and restaurant there so great atmosphere with the locals coming in. Paola who ran it was great, made us very welcome and could speak enough English to make up for our poor Italian. Excellent food at a very reasonable price. If you want to sample traditional Italian hospitality in an out of the way beautiful setting then this is for you.
A good experience. An special atmosphere A little bit far from important cities and nothing to do at the village.
A small hotel in a small village in the middle of great nature. Staff is very friendly and room was very clean. The intergrated restaurant offers very good italian food to reasonable prices . Many of the restaurant guests are locals. This is a sign for the quality. nothing
the staff has been very kind, the location is wonderful: a tiny old village in the middle of val d'orcia. no complaints.
it is a wonderful location, very nice staff, personal informal atmosphere and is situated in a romantic village on top of a hill in the heart of Tuscany. the size of the bathroom/shower
the view of the landscape
Staying at Agriturismo Poggio Tobruk was definitely a highlight of our 15days Italy trip. This place is a GO to everybody who's tired of bastle of big city and just want to have quiet days off with beautiful scenery at the center of Val D'Orcha. This place is just 10 minutes drive from the city of Pienza. Federico, the owner of this property's brother, was very welcoming us with huge hospitality. He spoke good English, fluent French and said he was to study German as well! He helped us for giving much information of places to visit around there. Out of his recommed places to visit, "Vagno Vignoni", a hot spring 10minutes drive from the agriturismo was just great! Thanks Federico! We'll definitely come back to Poggio Tobruk next time :) One thing that we couldn't extend our stay there :(
Very kind people, you feel as amoung the best friends, but without everyday duties,excellent kitchen, very nice area. Nothing
No refrigerator, no bath items, no glasses, small room, no swimming pool, no outside territory
Frederico was very friendly and helpful, directing us to great activities and restaurants in the region. The food we had the one night was some of the best we had on our entire trip. And the solitude and scenery plus size and cleanliness of the Tubruk was just what we wanted. Nothing really. Probably should clarify that there is no restaurant, but rather dinner may be available upon request (FYI - plenty of great restaurants nearby). Also would be good to have better description of location on English website. Otherwise, great, great find.
EVERYTHING except the parking (we were in Pienza over the May Day holiday, which made this problem acute (since we needed to park near to the hotel due to the wheelchair). In addition, repairs were being made to the side road, where the parking spots were located, which exacerbated the problem. very limited parking (see above)
walking distance to shops and many restaurants. fantastic views - great location for photographers and touring Tuscany
Good location with some parking, clean and comfortable if a little impersonal but useful if touring in Tuscany as easy to find. Lack of a restaurant other than for groups - both food and parking a bit overegged on website
ready to help at special accident the group of youngsters at the parking place near the hotel later at night
the host andrei was very cordial and helpul during our two day stay thought the posted directions to the B&B can be improved also although the bathroom was huge and comfortable a small table for bath accessories would be a nice addition
It was a great little B&B right next to the historical center of town. You get personal attention from Andre. It was simple but had a beautiful view and was well worth the price.
the cleanliness was second to none. the position was great and the room spacious
Location, spacious sleeping rooms Breakfast could be better
Stayed for 2 nights on our way back from Umbria. Very welcoming owner - we had sole use of 2 bed appt opening onto garden which was brilliant. Pienza is a wonderful small town and we were there for the festival & cheese rolling competition - brilliant atmosphere through the day and music/dancing in the square in evening. Some very good restaraunts serving typical local food & wine and only a few steps back to Il Giardino Segreto! We were lucky with parking just outside the walls for free but could be a problem in peak season.
Warm welcome. This is a charming house, tastefully decorated and furnished in keeping with local tradition, with a lovely garden, perhaps unique in Pienza
Delightful place in a beautiful town. The 'Secret Garden' really does have a garden for guests to use and enjoy. Our apartment had facilities for preparing a light meal. Everything was furnished in excellent taste - a truly fine experience.
The room and the garden were just lovely - exactly the little Secret Garden! The old windows and the doors gave a specific touch to the romantic atmosphere. We also appreciated the staff for advising us to make a reservation to the restaurants in Pienza. It would have been easier to communicate if the staff would have spoken at least a bit of english.
Perfect location within old Pienza. Pienza itself is in the middle of wine country, much more pleasant to stay there than in Montalcino or Montepulciano. Very convenient re day to day living. Not one thing. It was great.
Nice room clean, silent and aesthetic Very light and poor breakfast exactly for weight watchers....
It was really a great location: in the centrum and easy to find (close to the parking) n/a
Absolutely wonderful place! Right at the heart of the town you find this oasis with its lovely garden. The hosts were very kind and helpful, flexible and caring for the customer. The room was very romantic and beautiful, with a separate space for enjoying a breakfast. You can tell that a lot of effort has been to renovate them. Truly a place to visit again! For some the ingredients provided for self-made breakfast might not be enough, but that shouldn't be a problem since you can find all the small shops right around the corner.
We had a wonderful stay at Cereto. Our room was so beautiful, I was so enchanted. The grounds are spectacular and there are so many very nice places to sit and relax to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Monica was kind, helpful and very friendly. Nothing, it was perfect!
Gorgeous place with a beautiful view and lovely owners!
I like it a lot. Wish could have different variety of breakfast.
Location and room Tv is Very Old and satellite did not work .Instructions only in Italian
Surrounding peaceful n quiet. nice sunset. 3 hrs use of electricity for heating n beyond its chargeable. Staff cld b more friendly. shd change d bed as it was squeaking each time one of us toss or turn.
Of all the views we saw in our three days of driving in Tuscany, the panoramic views from this agriturismo were the absolute highlight. After checking in, we wandered the grounds, taking (wonderful!) pictures of the cypress trees at sunset. Luca was super helpful and welcoming, and the location was most convenient since it was right off of the main road between Montalcino and Montepulciano. I want to live there!
