I spent one week at the villa with three friends. I can not say enough good things about this beautiful place. The staff was beyond kind and helpful, the food was outstanding and the setting is breathtaking. The old world feel of the villa is charming and perfectly sets the mood for an Italian luxury vacation. I highly recommend Villa Poggiale!
The villa and the property is very nice. Beatiful garden, restaurant with nice view, friendly staff. During a longer stay I would eat dinner somewhere else and not only at the hotel. Next time I would try a superior room, but would like to go again.
What an idyllic place for weddings and family vacations! What’s not to love? The spacious rooms, the excellent service, the delicious food, the scenic views made our week’s stay for a family wedding perfect!
We have stay at the villa on multiple trips to Italy since 2008. The staff always strive to provide the utmost unique customer experiences with great and caring dedication! The villa is truely home away from our home for us! We cant wait to return once again!!
A pleasant surprise for my group of 8. We travel this area once or twice a year and now I have a new chosen destination for our future ventures in Italia. Accommodations were great, food was outstanding and the surrounding views lovely. Monica (GM) was very adept at addressing the needs of everyone and seemed genuinely attentive to my group. Look forward to returning next Spring.
A truly memorable stay at this historic villa just outside Florence city center. My husband and I reserved our stay at Villa il Poggiale for the first stop of our honeymoon. We wanted to stay more in the Tuscan country side for the beginning of our trip and this villa met our expectations and more. All the staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and responsive. Any time we came back to the villa we were greeted and asked if there was anything we needed. I also loved being able to communicate with staff via WhatsApp throughout the day whether for restaurant recommendations or any questions we had during our stay. We did rent a car to get to the villa and did not find it difficult to get to the villa from the Florence airport. An easy drive. Our stay at this villa was more of an experience with all the history this villa holds which takes you back in time. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The view at the villa is breathtaking and peaceful. We enjoyed sunset views with a bottle of wine. We can’t wait to visit again in the future to be able to enjoy the pool! Grazie a mille Villa il Poggiale and see you soon!…
Hope to get back soon. What a picturesque villa. Like something out of a postcard. Set just outside of the village within a beautifully landscaped acreage, this could not have been a nice place to stay. Mateo greeted us upon our arrival and personally showed us around the villa and the grounds. Polite, professional and informative, his review was perfect way to start our stay. The rooms are nicely furnished, with a nice library for relaxing in and grounds that are both stunning and provide an awesome view. Mateo topped off our stay by recommending a local restaurant that was better than we could have wished for. Five stars and plans to get back as soon as we can!
Stayed here as part of a post-cruise excursion (in other words, I did not pick this place). Grounds and views are fairly impressive, but the place is a bit run down. Had breakfast and dinner here twice. Breakfast was basically a meager continental breakfast plus scrambled eggs. Dinners were average. Rooms OK.
We had a perfect stay in this historic Tuscan villa. Excellent food, great staff, comfortable all around. Enjoyed walks in the countryside. Close to major tourist towns for day trips, but nice to return to the villa's peace. The staff took particular care with COVID precautions which we found reassuring.
This is a wonderful old villa in the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany. From here, you can go biking, visit cities to San Gimignano, Sienna, or Chianti vinyards. The setting is unforgettable, the pool is surrounded by olive trees and vinyards. Calm and sereine atmosphere. You can always find a quiet place to relax whether in one of the numerous sitting rooms or outside. Rooms are comfortable . The staff went out of its way to find the right rooms for us. Wifi does not work in some rooms (very thick walls) - works better outside or in some of the sitting rooms. Very relaxing stay.
