“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

villa Al Poggiale is a delightful hotel with wonderful views of the countryside. The rooms were lovely as were he bathrooms. The hole comes with its own spa which was a special extra. We spent an entire afternoon sitting outside admiring the view eating and drinking. One of the best days ever! The staff are very helpful and the breakfast was hearty. It's a beautiful property and a must see location.

Room Tip: Choose rooms overlooking the hills.

We stopped here for a night on the way from Venice to Rome, and liked it to much instantly that we extended to two nights. It is a wonderful place, with a friendly, helpful staff. There are tons of wineries and other sites to drive to from there, or it is a great place to stay by itself. They have a dinner every night, and you should definitely book that (I think it's cheaper if you book dinner and stay together).

I would gladly go back and stay longer. Wonderful place.

Its a beautiful villa in the most amazing setting. We just relaxed and the staff even though it was not the season took real good care of us. The spa is nice and the Jacuzzi was very relaxing but the back terrace with the views was incredible.

This was and still is a family home...on a grand scale. The views are stunning and the sunsets are awesome! The staff was extremely accommodating. The breakfast was very good and the dinner buffet was full of wonderful choices!
A nice touch is the spread of wines and drinks available to guests to enjoy via an honor system in their parlor. A wonderful retreat!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

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.

Dear Sirs,

We are sorry to hear that your stay at Villa il Poggiale was not up to your expectations.
However we wish to explain you some points: Our spa is not proposed as a real spa, for this reason offers basic services and, as the jacuzzi , not very large. It has been created to offer an additional FREE service to our customers especially during the winter when the pool is closed. Usually our customers appreciate this piece of wellness after a day of sightseeing, moreover Villa il Poggiale is one of the few structures that offers this service in Chianti area. Brunch on January 1st began slightly later (11.20 am instead of 11am) to give the opportunity to the customers who had not booked this service to have regular breakfast that usuallly ends at 10am, however was always possible for everybody to eat and drink something from 8am to 14 pm enjoying food of breakfast or of brunch. The brunch included pies and homemade cakes, bread, schiacchiate, local affettati and cheeses, smoked salmon, eggs, omelets, croassaint, russian salad and many other dishes...We believe that the choice was not limited but very wide and for each type of tastes.
We really hope to welcome you again in the next future and make your holidays more enjoyable with us.
Warmest regards
Villa il Poggiale
Irene
