|Farmhouse Poggio ai Cieli is located near Siena, in the municipality of San Gimignano, very well known Medieval village immersed in the Tuscan countryside. It is an ideal place for quiet holidays in the country and is an easy starting point for the "art" cities or just for walks on the natural surroundings.
Poggio ai Cieli is a small
agricultural holding of 10 hectares used for viticulture.
The site is on a hill with excellent exposure, within the
district of San Gimignano. It is an ideal place for quiet
holidays in the country and is an easy starting point for
