Poggio Dei Medici is home to arguably the best food in Europe. Italy also has a wonderful array of top-quality stay and play golf resorts. Perhaps best of them all is Poggio dei Medici ("The Hill of the Medici"). Excellent food, accommodation and spa facilities are complemented by a terrific golf course, designed by one of Italy's golfing greats, Baldovino Dassu. The Tuscan countryside elegantly wraps itself around the course, with castles and villages, pine trees and cypresses all in view. If you can tear yourself away from the golf, Italy's most stunning city - Florence (Firenze) - awaits just a thirty minute drive away to the south.
