I might be going against many reviewers opinion, however I personally believe that the Villa Il Poggiale is nicer in Summer than in Winter. Rooms are nice, high ceilings but normally furnished. Same for the bathrooms. The Spa is extremely basic even though the sauna units are new. If the sauna unit is turned off (happens often), it takes more than an hour for it to warm-up again. The bubblebath is extremely small, can hardly take 2 persons.
Breakfast is basic, options are limited. No fresh juice.
Nice classical music was played on new Year's day however the brunch started late, was organised in a haste, and again food proposal was limited.
The director at reception was however very courteous. She helped understanding the area, the nice towns to visit, do's and don'ts. She has been extremely helpful!
I was however expecting much more from the place, having read the reviews and seeing the price for the room.
