“Lovely villa with a real sense of history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We stayed here for four nights in a junior suite and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The hotel - a wonderful villa, converted to a hotel with a light touch, so it has a really authentic feel. Wonderful art, furniture and lighting in some very grand rooms. Situated in beautiful grounds with simply stunning views across a valley. The honesty bar is a nice touch, with chianti by the glass and home-made snacks on offer. There is a great terrace to sit at and watch the sunset with a bicchiero or two. Breakfast was good, with a range of home-baked breads with jams, juice, cakes, cheese and ham on offer. My four-year-old said 'this is the best breakfast EVER.' We didn't try the evening buffet - other guests had commented that 30 Euro each was steep and the food good rather than amazing.

The pool is great, with lovely views, plenty of shade on offer and enough seating. Child-friendly. The service was friendly and welcoming - we were given a bottle of chilled Prosecco on arrival which was tough to endure obviously, and all our requests were dealt with promptly. Our bedding was not changed until we requested it though, which was odd in an expensive villa (we paid Euro 260 per night).

Our room was beautiful, with antique furniture and a real sense of history, facing the courtyard so no view but cool. A/C, fridge and flat panel TV. It did smell musty though and the bathroom was pretty tired and in need of a facelift. Other guests seemed very happy with their rooms though - perhaps the upper floors are better.

Room Tip: Room 3 (junior suite) is large and attractive but a little musty and the bathroom is tired.

We stayed for two weeks with our young children and never wanted to leave! The very definition of a holiday..... great service, great food and phenomenal staff. A great place to relax and unwind and yet only 20 minutes from the centre of Florence. The accommodation is generous but the home cooked food using fresh local produce was truly wonderful and the service excellent and friendly. In the words of Arnie... " We'll be back".

I was there for the wedding of my best friend last year, that was almost single-handedly orchestrated by Daniela. We had the entire Villa rented for the week. It was one of the most beautiful, romantic places I have ever stayed. Daniela's forethought, attention to detail and hospitality was unmatched. It gives you the feeling that you are staying at 'your family home' that has been in the family for 500 years. It is not pretentious but comfortable and welcoming. The views are beautiful, tuscan 'dream-like' views. Rooms are traditional and comfortable with all the comfort amenities. In addition to this, the hotel is conveniently located for drives throughout Tuscany and into Firenze. Be sure to spend time with the "Sofia Loren" of the property, Daniela. She's amazing.

We attended my son's wedding at Villa Il Poggiale and enjoyed a wonderful time. The setting is beautiful in the rolling hills outside Florence. The Villa is beautiful and perfect in every way. The staff, the rooms and the food, could not have been better.
