“Amazing venue for wedding and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

My husband and I celebrated our wedding at Villa il Poggiale and absolutely loved the venue. We organised everything from overseas and only saw the villa in person a couple of days before the wedding. We loved it from the moment we got there - beautiful views, lovely rooms and very helpful staff. They were super responsive to any requests we had and were so thoughtful with small details like champagne and strawberries in our room on the evening of the wedding. We definitely recommend this venue to anyone who wants to have a memorable wedding in breathtaking surroundings, or just relax by the pool!

Il Risorgimento is complete. Garibaldi has done what was expected of him and is now a peripheral, if revered figure in the new politics of the Italian state. But the old order adapts to new circumstances with traditional resilience. Its members still collect their rents and build, extend and maintain palazzi of varying scale in every locality.
Il Poggiale is a manifestation of this continuity. It takes revolutions and invasions in its stride. As the source of wealth shifts from the land to the less tangible produce of technology and financial services, Il Poggiale opens its doors to this new global class of travellers. Nevertheless, upon arrival, it is like stepping back into another era. The long, gravel drive leads to the imposing, columned porch that runs across the width of the warm, ochre stucco-ed building. A range of tables and chairs indicate that this is an area for gaining some respite from the sun, probably in the company of something cold, soft and honeyed in a glass.
The public rooms are decorated in the country house style - patrician but inviting. Service is attentive and friendly throughout our stay. I am glad that we opted for a superior bedroom. These are located on the entrance and upper floors of the house, rather than on the lower levels near the dining rooms and breakfast terrace. Ours overlooks a small courtyard - pretty enough - and in the shade throughout the second half of the day. These cooling effects are enhanced by the generous proportions and high ceilings of the room. It is furnished in a traditional style and both the walls and ceiling are decorated with beautiful nineteenth century-based painted patterns.
Outside, the gardens are well maintained and contain a sizeable swimming pool with plenty of loungers, tables and parasol shading. The views to the west are stunning - across the heavily-wooded hills, garnished with vineyards and olive groves.
Il Poggiale is only a couple of kilometres from the town of San Casciano. However, the lure of a buffet dinner on the terrace, accompanied by the magnificent scenery, was overwhelming on both nights of our stay. The food was perfectly acceptable - fresh and plentiful - without being exceptional. The utter romanticism of the location, however, will ensure that these were evenings that will never be forgotten.

Room Tip: I would recommend the superior rooms.

This delightful traditional styled Tuscan Villa is a wonderfully welcoming retreat from the bustle of Florence. A maze of passages link a variety of interesting sitting areas and individual bedrooms. Dinner and breakfast are served on the terrace overlooking a valley studded with olive trees and vineyards and the staff are welcoming and happy to help at any opportunity. If you want to treat yourself to a little pampering and style, this is the place to do it. This was our second visit and I hope to have an opportunity again.

We had a wonderful stay at Poggiale. The hotel is very comfortable and elegant. The staff is greatly polite making our stay even more pleasant. Breakfast is very good and can be taken outside, what beings a great atmosphere. Rooms are big and very well decorated. Comments are only regarding the size of the couple bed. Even knowing hotel style it cold have being a bit bigger.

Thank you all!

I stayed in a junior suite room. The room was nice, but far from what I expected. If you want the best room in the villa request room no 11. I liked everything except the cheap looking jacuzzi and the not so varied breakfast.

My friend and I booked a 3 night stay in a junior suite. We were immediately overwhelmed by the tranquil beauty of the villa. The heritage homestead is surrounded by rolling hills of vineyards and greenery.

We enjoyed the use of the pool as it was very hot during this time. We took advantage of the spa downstairs and got a relaxing and therapeutic massage from Patricia.

Monica, Javier and Irene from the reception were always willing to help with any questions or any problems we had, like not organizing a proper lift to the villa twice and they were more than obliging to organize a driver for us.

The food they serve is excellent quality. Breakfast includes scrambled eggs, toasts, crossaints, cheeses, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, tea, coffee and spreads- even nutella! We never had the light lunch but dinner served buffet style never left us hungry!

Special mention to Marcello the charming dinner host with the most impeccable manners ever known to mankind.

I cannot wait to return as soon as I can!

we had five nights stay at the villa, stunning views so peaceful, most of the rooms are beautiful, I saw most of them as friends and family were staying there at the same time, as I booked the villa I thought I got the worst deal as I was in the receiption area and 8 am the phone started ringing and people in receiption talking etc. I think this should be the cheapest room. Don't put you off as everything else is wonderful

Room Tip: ask not to be in recieption area
