Situated within easy reach of Pisa, Florence, Siena and San Gimignano, and with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, Santa Maria a Poneta is as serene and magical an oasis as you could wish to find in the heart of Tuscany. Centred around a small country church dating back to the Early Middle Ages, the old farm buildings were restored...

The place is amazing, we stayed for two weeks in different houses and both were very good. The hamlet is very well taken care and the owners (and their lovely daughter) are very nice and friendly. An absolute place to stay.

Santa Maria a Poneta is an excellent base for exploring Tuscany. Within one hour you reach Florence, Siena and Volterra. Another half hour and you can visit Pisa, Lucca and Arezzo. Do not forget to make a stop in some of the beautiful small villages you pass on your way. There is always a charming church and an osteria where...

My husband and I went stayed at Santa Maria a Poneta for our honeymoon earlier this year.
