My husband and I stayed at Villa il Poggiale for two nights two years ago and liked it so much that we said we would return, which we did last week with our two children, aged 5 and 6. And this time we stayed for a week. The Villa is just as lovely as we remembered it: set in the beautiful Tuscan hills it has the perfect balance of feeling that you are somewhere very special but relaxed and not at all stuffy. The staff are warm, welcoming and so helpful. We stayed in the apartment, La Fonte, which has it's own kitchen and sitting room. This was a perfect space for us and the children and meant that we could prepare our own breakfast and lunch and then go out for dinner in the evening. Villa il Poggiale is perfectly situated for exploring the region and close enough to Florence that we could go there just for dinner when it was too hot to be there during the day.
I would happily recommend Villa il Poggiale to my friends, whatever their age, with or without children. It is a place for everyone.
