Meet the Di Bello family, owners of San Giovanni in Poggio
Our family, deeply in love with the magnificent countryside around Siena, found an abandoned farmhouse to the south of the city and decided to bring it back to life with a special restoration project that lasted over 3 years. Today, San Giovanni in Poggio is a warm and cosy refuge in the winter and a cool, shady shelter filled with light in the summer.
