Villa del Poggio – San Casciano Val di Pesa – Tuscany
24 Bedrooms / Suites – Pool
Surrounded by beautiful Chianti countryside adorned with grapevines and olive groves and yet close to some of Tuscany’s best loved hilltop villages, towns, cities and prized vineyards, Villa del Poggio offers discerning guests a superb selection of charming bedrooms and suites in an intimate private villa rather than luxury hotel. The Villa benefits from owners who pride themselves on exceptional taste and fine attention to detail and have managed to create the perfect semi- rural retreat with the “connoisseur” in mind.
One of the oldest and most beautiful Villas of San Casciano, Villa del Poggio has passed through the hands of both The Corsini family and later The Ricasoli-Rucellai family. From the 16th century portico and façade to the breathtaking interior with beautiful frescoes and depicted doors from the 18th century, the villa exudes history. Many of the floors are original Cotto Fiorentino, whilst carefully restored exposed beams add character and warmth to bedrooms on the upper level. Antique furnishings and beautifully tiled bathrooms throughout, and high ceilings on the Noble floor blend to create the genuine charming Tuscan flavour and atmosphere. The Villa offers an informal bar service in addition to La Tinaia serving light lunchtime snacks and buffet dinner, from May to October, based on Tuscan specialties and produces.
The gardens are delightful, with secular cypresses, flowers and hedges, all of which are typical of the Italian Gardens of the Renaissance period. Guests may unwind at the divine property outdoor swimming pool opulently landscaped with the enveloping rolling hills.If you can manage to drag yourself away from this magical retreat, Florence is only a 20 minute drive away. Other Tuscan villages such as San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa and Lucca are located within a 60-minute drive.
Villa del Poggio with its interiors and gardens is the ideal setting for weddings and special gatherings, organized exclusively for our guests. The superb location in the enchanting Chianti area, offering breathtaking views of the Tuscan landscape, makes Villa del Poggio the perfect place for a romantic wedding. The Villa gives the opportunity to rent the entire property, arranging the wedding reception in the panoramic garden savoring the delicious local cuisine. The Villa may arrange wedding events up to max. 70-80 people. The La Tinaia room is able to accommodate those Guests wishing to organise small business meetings and special events in a most serene setting.
