Wonderful place to relax, with a quiet that is welcome to city dwellers, real night sky, gorgeous views, and fresh figs in season.

The apartment was charmingly old, but with modern conveniences, and Raffaele a knowledgeable and friendly host.

We are glad that you enjoyed the peaceful nature surrounding Il Poggio alle Ville - so much appreciated by "city dwellers" as you well said. It is indeed like going back in time, while having modern comfort at the same time. You're most welcome any other time you wish to return and for us it will always be a pleasure!

At this facility you can be far away in time while enjoying the great facilities offered by the owner Raffael. Accommodations are quite rustic but clean and with antique charm. The suites are all renovated parts of a centuries old farm. The floors are stone or tile, the roof beams are black and rugged. There is a nice pool, and lots of quiet nooks where you can relax. above all the scenery is very appealing, rolling hills wooded with oak, ash and Rowan. The scene is right out of E M Forster's book A Room with A View. Raffael was an excellent host. The staff were very friendly.

It is a pleasure to read your description of Poggio alle Ville and we are happy that you enjoyed so much your stay. Il Poggio alle Ville's biggest advantage, as you wrote, is its natural position, a true blessing. We hope to welcome you and/or family and friends in the future again. Thank you for having been our guest!

Raffaele Edlmann and his staff will do whatever is necessary to make your visit pleasant and memorable. We used the villa and most of the apartments for a music workshop, but would readily come back with friends and/or family just for a vacation. The property is in a beautiful setting, with views of the mountains from the villa. It's an easy drive to Florence and other places of interest, although we prefer to drive to Borgo San Lorenzo and take the train. If you decide to partake of the excellent cooking you will be very happy. We have been here five times and look forward to the sixth!

Room Tip: The villa is great for a party of 16 (with two sharing a room). There is a large kitchen with modern amenities, a dining room and living room, and a couple of smaller rooms. It's high on a hill, with wonderful views. Smaller groups would do better in the apartments at the bottom of the hill.

Dear Tish, thank you for trusting us for all these years! We feel so privileged to have been welcome you and your students for five times now and we'll be extremely happy to host you again in the future. Your music is divine and we are so impressed that you are bringing back to life for us in the 21st century this old music that was born here in Italy hundreds of years ago. We are here for you whenever you wish like returning!

We are here with an early-music workshop. It's a delight in every way - comfortable apartments in old restored stone buildings (ancient timbered ceilings, but working plumbing!), ravishingly beautiful grounds and countryside, good food. Rafael could not be more gracious, friendly, and helpful. We all just love this magical place.

Thank you for your appreciation! It was a magical time for us as well to be able to host such a wonderful workshop of Renaissance music with you all who come from so far away to our place. Such a historical setting as Il Poggio alle Ville was blessed by your music. We'd be honored to have you again in the future, even only for just a short holiday.

Great place and location, excellent management, Rooms are big and with typical tuscany furniture's. There are two swimming pools, one soccer filed and a lot of space to relax. We had also the chance to visit the tree camping where you literarily sleep on special bed hanged on the tree. Raffaele borrowed me his trial motorbike and really enjoyed riding for an hour around Poggio alle Ville property

Room Tip: Villa Montagna for a group of people is the best

Thank you once more for the detailed description of our farmhouse & villa complex! it is such a wonderful recognition of our work to receive this kind of appreciation. The tree-sleeping activity (for adults and children, there are some photos in our profile) is new and attracts more and more people. It makes one live the place and the amazing surrounding nature at its fullest. Hope to have you back soon! :-)
