Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Very kind people, you feel as amoung the best friends, but without everyday duties,excellent kitchen, very nice area.
Cons: No refrigerator, no bath items, no glasses, small room, no swimming pool, no outside territory
Pros: 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 :)
Cons: One thing that we couldn't extend our stay there :(
