Antico Borgo Poggiarello

Monteriggioni, Siena
Bed & Breakfast

Family-run holiday village with gorgeous views, a lovely terrace for sunset-gazing and delicious Tuscan cooking. Utterly charming


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 6


Totally unspoilt, with stunning views over the hillsides to San Gimignano and Volterra, this tucked-away 17th-century borgo reached by 2 km of woodland track has been transformed into an utterly charming ‘holiday village’ linked by a circuit of paths. Poggiarello is a family set-up: Roberto does the cooking; Paolo, Grazia and Doriana do front of house. You can self-cater or do B&B here: the arrangements are flexible. A couple of the apartments are for two; some interconnect and are ideal for eight. Rooms are big and comfortable with wrought-iron beds, cream curtains and covers, tiled floors; all have patios and great views and one is excellent for wheelchair-users. Days are spent lolling by the pool, evenings sunset-gazing on the terrace. You’ll find it hard to leave, even though the treasures of Siena, Monteriggioni and Volterra lie a short drive away. Note the beautiful Roman bath housed in a cave that’s heated all year to 38 degrees (extra charge) and the terraced restaurant in the stables where you can sample the best of Tuscan home cooking.

A special thank you to Ann Joyce of Alastair Sawday for referring us to this spectacular distination. Antico Borgo was on the the highlights of our trip to Italy. My husband, Michael and I stayed at this lovely B&B for 2 nights, in the mountain region outside of Siena. Our 2 room suite had all the amenities of a 4 star hotel, including a full kitchen. No need to cook, Roberto is a professionally trained chef, who created and prepared delicious gourmet dinners and breakfasts. The staff, Nino, Roberto and Paolo treated us as family and were attentive to every detail.


Nino and Paolo were charming and attentive hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they arranged for bicycle hire one day for a great way to see the local area. The situation of Poggiarello is quite stunning, it has a sizeable pool and playing area for children. The evening meals were a delight, and the wine list was affordable and good quality. With San Gimignano, Siena and Volterra within easy reach there is no shortage of places to visit if you tire of chillaxing by the pool.


A wonderful family-run, welcoming and comfortable place to stay in Tuscany. Spectacular views over the countryside incl. San Gimignano in the distance. Planned to stay 3 nights but ended up staying for 5. All the family were warm and laid-back yet nothing was too much trouble. Great food every evening. Grazie Nino, Grazia and family !
