    They overcharged me by 220 euros. Despite being shown the book.com rate and agreeing to issue a refund, after a month they have not made the refund. They do not respond to emails and do not follow through with their commitments. I was not impressed by the facility, the food and certainly not with the service when a problem arose.

    Excellent view, location, design, service and atmosphere!!!! Perfect blend...We would love to come back!

    Breakfast could be offer more variety and some double rooms have no view at all.

    Fabulous

    Many nice places in and outside the house to read and relax. Nearby Florence. The dinners. The lovely villa and the surroundings. The friendly staff who is always willing to answer questions. The honesty bar.

    In a villa like this, with all these stairs and no elevator, it would be nice if the staff would help the guests with bringing their luggage to the room.

    Beautiful property overlooking valley. Gentle breezes. Clean rooms with adequate space. Delicious dinner buffet and nice breakfast. Lunch menu limited. Helpful and efficient staff.

    We took our dog and children (13, 12 and 10) and felt that we needed to keep both quiet. Very lovely villa that lends itself to adult guests. I made reservations for two rooms--one through Booked.net and one directly with the hotel via their website. When we arrived, they only had one room and thought I did not want two rooms. They should have emailed me to verify. We had to change rooms once with each room during our 6 night stay. I did add extra nights via Booked.net which confused them. We spent over 2000 euros and though they worked it out, they made me feel as if it was my error. It was not. I also had said on the reservation that the dog would be with us and they said they were not notified of the dog. I recommend that you verify your reservation prior to arrival.

    Superb

    This is a beautiful house with lovely romantic rooms. The swimming pool and spa facilities were great.

    It was disappointing that such an expensive hotel does not have fresh squeezed juice and real Italian coffee for breakfast.

    Villa il Poggiale was wonderful in every way-large, beautiful room and bath, friendly and helpful staff, wonderful breakfast overlooking the valley, and all in a gorgeous setting of cypress, olive and apricot trees.

    Everything at the villa was superb, just an amazing stay. Daniela was wonderful seeing all was as it should be for us. Marcello as a waiter was so great and friendly assisting us with information to our queries on the area. Our stay was an unforgettable experience and one not to miss if you have the opportunity.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful setting.

    We checked in and were told the next morning that on our fourth night we would have to move rooms due to a wedding that was booked. We were then told that on our fifth night they had relocated us to another villa due to the wedding. I thought that this was very inconvenient given that we had booked the accommodation in early May and no one had told us of this wedding. For future, I would suggest the hotel be aware of large groups and when this happens avoid booking individual travellers. I would also suggest that the hotel does not welcome large groups (there was also a large group of American bicyclists staying at the hotel). I think that this really affects the integrity of the beautiful hotel setting when there are groups. The venue should remain a small, intimate setting.

    Very good

    Location Location Location, Just perfect everything we were hoping for, just stunning.

    the meals were based on a buffet style which was fine for lunch but would have preferred to have had a more set meal at night. this was a very minor on what was a very good stay

    Good

    Very serene and quite countryside, the gourmet food was great and the staff esp. Daniel was very helpful, some were not too friendly. The kitchen staff were friendly and accommodating. The Hotel and hotel room is very clean but the beds are very hard.

    -Very pricey for the limited services ie. Concierge services and front office staff are only available 8am-8pm. No 24 hour room service. -The beds were very uncomfortable.They were hard, more than firm. -We booked and paid for a jr suite and got a 1 bedroom King size bed with 2 beds put together, the division very prominent and uncomfortable. The sitting area was shared by another room and the hotel staff used them for their conference and use as well. -Hard to find the location .Although with gps, we got lost going there, neither of the addresses given by the hotel works

    Superb

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully restored villa in wonderful surroundings. An excellent base for visiting Florence and the Chianti countryside.

    Road noise from the Via Empolese could be a little intrusive at times.

    Superb

    Good location, historic building with nice views of vineyards. You feel like at home, with a honesty bar.

    Some rooms are not so good, with noisy. The internet access is not so good, you need to take a password everyday and it is only accessed (slow) from the lounge

    A beautiful villa in an area of outstanding countryside yet within easy distance of Siena and Florence. The staff are very helpful. The rooms are wonderful and the place is spotless. The food is excellent. Deserves the highest rating. We had a superb holiday here.

    Good

    We chose to stay at Villa Il Poggiale because in the details on Booked.net it was listed that there was a restaurant at the Villa. Unfortunately, the restaurant is only open April - October so after driving all day we had to get back in the car and drive out again. On arrival we were asked to wait before we could check in whilst the receptionist spoke to a couple with regards to their wedding booked there. We waited for about 20 minutes before deciding to find a bar and let the couple have some privacy!
