Overall Property Description: Situated in the heart of Chianti between Firenze and Siena, at a short distance from Marcialla hamlet, divided between the Municipalities of Certaldo and Barberino Val d'Elsa, there is the farm holiday Fattoria Pogni, which historical core dates back to the XIV century. The small village is perched on the hillside about 400 meters above sea level, surrounded by stone walls and reachable only through an unmade road (1 km).

The farm is composed of a large farmstead divided into 4 holiday apartments and of an hayloft divided into 2 holiday apartments, another barn with two large common rooms on two floors and a manor house where the owner's family live.
