When you close your eyes and think of countryside Italy, Poggio San Nicola is the place. The setting is perfect for complete rest. The views are unforgettable. The Hosts, Mary, Tina, Peter, and Francesco took care of our every needs. The sea is about 5 minutes away, hiking and biking outside the front gates. The food is five star quality with home baked morning cakes. Have dinner at least once, ask Mary to make the homemade pasta with pastaccio nut sauce. I still can not get this meal out of my mind. My wife will never forget hearing the march of the cattle. We have been to Tuscany, this place, this region, gives you the taste of true Italy. I can not wait to go back. The accomodations are five star quality. You know when you have had a great time someplace, you think about it everyday. I think I have summed it up. Many thanks to our Hosts, You really made us feel like "family".
