We had firstly visited Villa il Poggiale during a two week visit to Italy for my wifes 60th birthday in 2010 when we stayed for a week between 4 days in Venice and 3 in Rome. We had a wonderful time in a fabulous Junior Suite and with the use of a hire car arranged with Hertz in Florence explored the Region. We had thought that we would eat out more than we did but this was due to wonderful and varied evening meal buffet laid on at by Villa il Poggiale.
In all it exceeded our expectation
This time we were accompanied by our Son our Daughter in Law and our two year old granddaughter. They were amazed likewise by the villa and location but had been a little nervous on arrival re them having a young child. The staff however where suberb and would prepare a special simple meal for Sophie at 7pm if required. However after the first day she accompanied us to the meal and a high chair was provided. The pool facility also was usuable as a very shallow end on entry.
All in all just as good as before with the staff seeing to your every wish as soon as asked was done. Food excellant and varied, breakfast set you up for the day.
One suggestion however a hire car is cheaper than hiring taxis should you need to venture out.
