Poggio Dei Medici is a well established course in a beautiful location just north of Florence and easy to find due to excellent signposting. The course is very scenic, quite hilly and has fabulous views. The greens are USPGA and much better than all but the best courses in the UK. There is some water on the course but it does not really come into play making it good to play for all abilities.
The hotel was not busy and they offered us an upgrade to a junior suite with sitting room and terrace. It was large, nicely decorated, comfortable and very clean, all the staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was elaborate with fruits, juices and yoghurts, cheese, ham and salami and eggs can be ordered however you like them.
There is a restaurant and a spa with Turkish bath, the practice area is beautiful with views over the whole course. The nearby medieval town of Scarperia has nice restaurants of which we liked. A short drive north is a large outlet called Barberino which has Prada, Ralph Lauren, Cavalli you name it, a super destination for a golf break.
