“Absolutely breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We were 2 married couples traveling through Italy by car. We wanted old, authentic, Tuscan feel and found it here. We cannot adequately describe the views, the lawns, the quietness and richness of this property. Why drive back to town to eat when groceries and wine from local stores, prepared here, and enjoyed alfresco was so much better. The rooms were immaculately cleaned, bright and airy. Antonio was always there to give recommendations and directions. It was wonderful to share a bottle of wine with the other guests, out on the lawn, and did I mention the views!!?? This hilltop location gave us sunrises and sunsets. Poggibonsi was close to a major highway and manageable by car to find anything we needed.

We had a really fantastic holiday here in September 2012.The views from the villa are simply wonderful with the towers of San Gimignano visible in the distance. Several lovely sunsets and a beautiful property.Driving to Tuscan towns like Sienna and Florence was quite simple.All in all we highly recommend it.

My girlfriends and I spent a week at Casale di Villore in September. We had always stayed in hotels and wanted something different. When we arrived at the villa, the scenery was surreal. It was on a hill overlooking grape vines and olive trees. There was also a fig tree in bloom and the figs were outstanding. Our accommodations were clean and very well equipped. We went to the market and had breakfast at the villa and went out for and lunch or dinner. We met other people staying there and had a wonderful time sitting outside and getting to know them. The sunsets were magnificent.
Antonio was more like a brother than an owner. We rented a car and he would let us know areas and things to see. He would give us a map and show us how to get where we wanted to go. It was the most relaxing vacation we had ever gone on. No more hotels and tour buses for us. We hope to be able to return to Villore soon.

Our group of six adults spent a week at Casale di Villore in September 2012. Overall, our experience exceeded all our expectations - and by a large margin. The property is simply beautiful and commands an incredible view of the Tuscan countryside. It is ideally located between midway between Florence and Siena and is an easy drive to many Tuscan towns. But the property is so pleasant that you hardly need to leave.

Our accommodations were outstanding - exceptionally clean, well furnished, and well stocked with cooking supplies. We rented the largest apartment because of the size of our group and it more than met our needs. In addition, it was a very good value.

Our host, Antonio, made our visit exceptional. He was friendly and accessible and provided excellent restaurant and sightseeing recommendations, driving directions, and information about Tuscany.

Our stay here was outstanding and we really hated to leave. I look forward to returning and would highly recommend Casale di Villore.

My wife and I shared a wonderful villa at Casale di Villore with four of our friends. Villore is beautifully situated atop a hillside looking west towards San Gimignano, which can be seen off in the distance. You can see beautiful sunsets looking out over olive groves and the Tuscan valley. While Villore is out in the quiet countryside, it's still a reasonable car ride to many great places - Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, wineries on the Chianti trail and many other places. Antonio is very friendly and helpful and has many recommendations for memorable things to do. He'll make arrangements for you, if you'd like. The villas are incredible. Old world charm outside and very nicely appointed inside. Internet access is hit or miss; but otherwise everything thing is great. We highly recommend it.

From the moment we arrived at Casale di Villore we knew that our stay was going to be unforgettable. There in front of us was a panaoramic view of paradise; an infinity pool surrounded by olive trees and a vineyard as far as the eye could see. Our accomodations were great too-we loved all of the decorating 'touches'. Antonio was always so helpful-from suggesting great restaurants nearby, to giving perfect directions to booking us at Monterinaldi, where we had a great lunch and tour of the winecellar etc. It felt so much like 'home' that none of us wanted to leave! We all agreed that we will return to Casale di Villore in the future.
