In the heart of the Chianti area, just a few kilometers from Florence is the Renaissance "Villa Il Poggiale", classified as a historical home, entirely restored by its owners with the aim of offering the hospitality and atmosphere of a patrician family country house at really affordable prices. The Villa has wonderful light and spacious rooms. The large hall, the heart of the house, with its beautifully painted doors, has comfortable armchairs and welcoming sofas, while various other smaller lounges offer quiet, cozy corners for reading and relaxation. Each room has its own unique character. The walls are painted in soft pastels made from natural pigments. The fabrics used for curtains and canopies come from small Tuscan artisan workshops.

Client Comments

"What a beautiful room! I could look out the front window to the driveway but was a bit too short to see the full view over the fields - John said that it was lovely!! The villa is beautiful and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. As it was off season, only breakfast was served but there were some nice restaurants in the town. We had a car so this was a great base from which to visit Tuscany."
