“No better way to see the Italian countryside.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Only spent two days here but thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was comfortable, well maintained and beautiful. The surrounding area was absolutely gorgeous and the hosts Danielle and Irene were extremely friendly and helpful. Wifi didn't reach the room but given the stone nature of the building that wasn't surprising. Wifi worked fine in the main living room and out on the front patio. I will be going back again.

we stayed two nights in the villa after three busy days in Florence, it was very relaxing just what we needed. The staff especially danielle and Irene couldn't be more helpful, we didn't have a car but that wasn't a problem because they very kindly drove us back and for . The villa is beautiful a nice place to unwind.

A beautiful Villa with a lovely and helpful crew.
We had a great time and stayed for another night...
Nice spa area and a great breakfast.
17 km from Florence, 20 min. by car, waking up in the country side was great!

If you are seeking a classical Tuscan villa in the heart of Chianti, you have found the place. The villa is situated in beautiful surroundings only a short drive from both a number of wineries, high class restaurants and Firence. The level of service is extremely high, and the staff did everything possible to make sure we had a great stay in Tuscany.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room as high up as possible to make sure you get a decent view of the surroundings...

My girlfriend and I stayed at VIP for 3 nights (extending twice). Upon arrival your are breath-taken by the view of the villa tucked away behind a long circular driveway. We got a great rate for this place, so I was astonished at all the luxuries that were offered. The free breakfast was un-real with eggs, meats, cheeses, bread and even free cappuccino delivered by one of the many incredible butlers. Free wi-fi in the lobby was great as you can sip some wine or espresso as you research your next stop. The service here is incredible. For example, we had a slight mishap here our first night when my gf slipped in the bathroom and cut here eye pretty bad. It was almost midnight and the only person left was the cook who spoke broken english, but was quick to deliver all the medical supplies needed, ice, etc. Then the concierge / head clerk personally drove us to the local doctor in town for a free eval. It was very easy given the help the crew provided. There is pool out back that would undoubtedly be great in the summer. This place has amazing dinners that are authentic italian served buffet style (all u can eat). A great price for what you get. I still think I had the best meal in italy here. The only things that I would change were the temperature in the rooms and the noise with the kitchen next to our room on the bottom floor. Other than that, everything was great. I highly recommend this to couples on the road in italy. It is a heavenly retreat!

We stayed here only a week ago and have to say it was the best accommodation of our whole trip. Its 17km outside of Florence city but still worth going outside the city if you have a car as it was less expensive than everything else we priced and I would imagine the fact its a 14th century villa quite difficult to match. We were recommended an excellent restaurant not far by car to eat which was equally as excellent. The views were amazing and we will return to Tuscany and Villa Il Poggiale without a doubt as we didnt get the best of weather when we were there.

My friend and I just finished a tour of the big three areas of Italy and our stay at Villa il Poggiale was easily the best of the trip! Just driving through the front gate is enough to 'wow' you but once you meet the staff it gets even better. We found them to be friendly and very helpful. We were given a tour of the Villa, definitely necessary, and our guide told us that the staff was more like family than co-workers. They helped us find free parking in Florence, let us use their computers to print out vital travel paperwork, and just made us feel very welcome. The only downside was that we could not spend more time in Tuscany with them. I have already recommended the Villa to friends planning their honeymoon and will make Villa il Poggiale the focus of my next trip to Italy.

Room Tip: Just ask and the staff will go out of their way to help you.
