PODERE COGNO - OUR FAMILY
family: the parents, Marco and Giovanna, 3 daughters, Claudia, Michela and
Silvia, Granny Mimmi: we live all year at Podere Cogno and we take
personal care of its management with the help of an efficient staff.
our life, since childhood, we had the luck to travel all over the world,
both for vacation and work, and for the above we have been in all kinds of
accommodations: from the top hotels to the mountain shelters.
different experiences allowed us to understand the really important,
usefull, pleasant facilities that should be found while travelling,
expecially in a foreign country
the 80s, after our Phd degrees, we decided to gave up “normal” and
well oragnized life to devote ourselves to the turistic welcoming, and
after 17 years in Sardinia, where we had a 120 person Residence, we moved
to Chianti, in order to offer an exclusive place for people like us, who
don’t like crowds, but who appreciate the essence of what is offered,
because the outward appearance doesn’t always mean quality, and
familiarity must not hide lack of professionality, but it must guarantee a
warm and relaxed atmosphere: a house where everybody can be himself, with
the utmost respect for individual privacy.
no doubt in Tuscany, and particulary in Chianti, there is a wide offer of
turistic accommodation, but Poder Cogno offers an antique hospitality, the
one that was offered in old ages when people had holidays in the country houses, and there Guests
were blessed, their requirements put at the first place and they could
share the deep knowledge of the country, to feel part of it, at ease,
welcomed….really “at home”.
the above has been possible because we decided to mix a simple home
welcome with the most of the complete services and refined details,
enhancing the peculiarity of this magic place, respecting the country and
its hisory. For us Podere Cogno is not only work, great care and profit,
but over all an endless research for the best to offer to our Guests.
