Michele, the owner, was extremely helpful and friendly and helped out all time. Paola made breakfast for us a few times when we asked and it was a great service. The local village of SanGemini was perfect for our needs too. The villa was clean and had plenty of character. The pool was welcome in the heat!

Good customer service I initially wrote to them outlining what I needed and they took a lot of the hard work out of it for my by giving a short list of villas that fitted my criteria. The follow up were also very good

Some 20 years ago a book called "Under the Tuscan Sun" was released (and several years later the movie), which made people fall in love with Italy and rush to Tuscany. Umbria has been overshadowed by UTT's glon , but in a way it for the best, as most of Umbria towns and villages retain their charms and haven't been Instagrammed to lots. <3 Coming from busy, noisy Chicago, I can barely express the delight I have San Gemini's place of life, and most of all - the silence!! It is so blissfully quiet here. The locals are friendly - don't mind the barking dos next door each time you head into the plaza. We really lunched ont with gorgeous fall weather - warm, lovely days and cool nights perfect for exploring local farms, and then enjoying a stroll around S.G at night. It was perfect weather for breakfast outside, relaxing by the pool and enjoying. Perugia - lovely citycenter, good musems and best selcetion of chocolates Amazing cathedral of Orvieto. Thank you especially to Paola - Sei cosi' meravigliosa! Una gioia! She is the best! =) Hope to visit and see you again some day! Cheryl, Steve , Eeva and Tony - Chicago

We have loved our week at Casa del Poggio (our new Italian home). it has been a perfect combination of exploring and chill time by the pool (which the kids - 10 years and 6 years, loved)! We really enjoyed many of the nearby towns - especially Spoleto (beware the castle closese at 8.00 pm sharp!), Orvieto and Narni. Our favourite though was the village of San Gemini and one of our best afternoons was spent wandering around the town, eating pizza at the local Pizzaria, having out in the little park. It has been amazing to go out our little hidden oasis to come home to. Michele has been a great host to us and thank you to Paola for trying to keep some semblance of order in the house with 6 of us here. We hope to come back soon! Thank you!

Renting a villa through Tuscany Now and More is an absolute pleasure from start to finish. The service is polite, efficient and honest at all levels. The villa descriptions are detailed and fair, backed up with numerous quality photographs. The villa owners and staff are always helpful and polite; locally recommended cooks prove to be fantastic and can be booked with confidence. At Casa del Poggio, the owner Michele, is the most helpful, polite and welcoming villa owner that you could possibly meet; he is an outstanding gentleman. Altogether, I feel absolute confidence when using the services of Tuscany Now and More.

We would like to thank Michele for being the perfect host. We were made very welcome and he has been extremely helpful during our stay. Many thanks to Paola for the fantastic breakfast and looking after the house and to her husband for looking after the pool. Daniela provided us with a wonderful dinner, don't miss out on trying one of her meals. Highlights of the trips were cooking class with Lorena. What a wonderful lady - simply outstanding evening in her lovely home. If you need private transport we can thoroughly recommend Michele Pitan. We visited Todi, Montefalco (including a winery of Romanelli) and Spoleto. All local bars, restaurants and shops we visited in San Gemini were extremely friendly and helpful. Don't miss visiting homemade pasta shop, the pizzeria, the mini market (supermarket). The porchetteria only open at weekends serves the best pork you will ever taste. Our favourite restaurant was La Pecora Nera - limited choice but delicious. Thank you to everyone. Paul, Nicky Rathbone and family, Keswick, England Ps. The little fruit and veg shop on via Roma has outstanding fruits and vegs, served to you by a very helpful father and son team.

Tuscany Now is the best website. It is easy to phone you to chat with your knowledgeable staff and ask advice. Your properties always look amazing on the website and are always even more beautiful upon arrival. Faultless

Michele's hospitality was most appreciated. Also the most generous provision of fresh food on arrival. The position of the villa, overlooking countryside as well as with a door into the main piazza was a wonderful new experience. We loved chatting with the friendly Sam Gemini inhabitants, shopping and eating in the village.

We liked everything about the villa. It was roomy, with communal space and areas throughout for smaller conversations. The grounds were exquisite and the pool was a great amenity.I want to mention that Marta, Cristina, and Giulia, all communicated with me and were outstanding.

Beautiful in San Gemini, Casa del Poggio. We enjoyed Daniela’s cooking for one evening and there were leftovers for the next day lunch. One day we went to cookery class, great experience. We did a bit of exploring in Terni. Another highlight was a visit to the Marmore falls, amazing to see the water being released full spray. Todi was a different experience, we felt like we discovered an abandoned medieval town. Orvieto was probably the nicest town in the area. Many shops that stay open past noon, a beautiful Duomo and spectacular views.

We had an excellent time, particular highlights; Spoleto incredible Duomo, Rocca and the Roman bridge. Excellent food at the ristorante del Mercato, and much more. Taverna del Torchio in san Gemini was great. The pasta with scamorza aubergines and tomatoes was particularly delicious as was everything cooked on the fire. Ristorante del Cavaliere also very good. It has been so nice to be somewhere so convenient, with all shops in beautiful San Gemini, the views the countryside and the luxury of a villa with so much space. Michele and Paola so helpful too. Thank you.

Each day started with the beautiful songs of your local birds,,,,the days full of sunshine….the convenience of everything we needed to sustain creature comforts away from home. The Roman romanticism captured our hearts. The tapestry in view at all times on our drives to visit each and every town close by. We’re thrilled to have stayed in your home and the warmth you expressed form the moment we arrived, thank you.

While it was colder than England when we arrived the sun soon shone and it warmed up enough for the girls to get in the pool. Fantastic to have so many places to ourselves at this time of year. The villa is well equipped and Daniela prepared a beautiful banquet on arrival. The fire place much appreciated on the cooler evenings.
