A corner of paradise nestled among the rolling Tuscan hills, a symbol of beauty, peace and poetry par excellence. This is how Poggio Cennina Resort, a charming little village boasting two hundred years of history that dominates the entire Val d'Ambra from the top of its knoll, reveals itself to visitors, enjoying a breathtaking view of the last sinuous strip of southern Chianti. Immersed in the green of the Tuscan countryside, the Resort is surrounded by a vast land cultivated with vineyards and olive groves and a lush forest where a romantic lake of about five thousand square meters is hidden. A magical location, ideal to fulfill your dream of love in the unparalleled scenery of one of the most beautiful and fascinating lands in the world. The Resort consists of seventeen units: three villas, ten apartments and four rooms for hotel use. The spacious and versatile outdoor spaces, which can accommodate up to 150 guests, are the perfect setting for an exclusive, unforgettable and unique reception. Starting from the upper square, where the welcome drink is usually prepared. For the banquet itself, the small square in front of the swimming pool is the ideal solution. Moreover, at the edge of the pool you can make the fateful cut of the cake, brightened by a romantic starry sky that envelops the entire Poggio giving guests a dreamy atmosphere. You can also admire the unique fireworks display to conclude, perhaps dancing, the most beautiful and important day of life. For a more private and intimate reception, there are the delightful internal rooms that can accommodate up to fifty guests. The bride and groom can also choose one of the many churches located near the Resort to celebrate the religious rite: the church of San Michele Arcangelo in Duddova, for example, is just a few kilometers away, while San Pietro a Ruoti and San Leolino are about ten kilometers from Poggio. The beautiful Ombrone monastery with the church of San Salvatore della Berardenga, finally, is only twenty kilometres away from the Resort. A professional and highly qualified staff is at the bride and groom's disposal, ready to fulfill their wishes so that the "yes" day will turn into a fairy tale to be forever etched in the memory of the heart.
