Overview

Poggibonsi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Chianti

Il Casale di Villore is an ochre stone farmhouse, medieval in origin, situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and enjoys a hilltop position from which the pastoral beauty of the countryside is in full view. After painstaking renovations, Villore’s six apartments are now available for holiday rental, each named after a different type of grape in honor of the region’s wine culture. We invite you to pass your holiday immersed in the rhythm and beauty of the Tuscan landscape. All of the apartments are furnished with antiques and have been decorated by the owner himself who has charmingly combined traditional Tuscan elements with the spaciousness, light and airiness that hallmark modern design.

Hiking, walking and bicycle trails radiate from Il Casale di Villore. Florence and Siena, renown for their art and architecture, are within easy driving distance as is the medieval city of San Gimignano. Traditional Tuscan dishes are on offer in area restaurants and local wineries open their doors to you for tours and tastings.

Our guests are our number one priority and a member of the Villore staff is always on hand to address any problems or simply offer suggestions on how to best take advantage of the beauty of the region. In addition, we are also pleased to organize guided excursions, chef services or cooking class, additional housekeeping and even appointments with our on-call masseuse, guided tours, wine tasting and museums tickets

About Antonio Pagliai

I have walked this land for many years and each time I still see something new. The time of day or year does not matter. I love music, paint ...that's why I love Tuscany. Here, in this land, rich with history and tradition, my guest will have my suggestions to enjoy a great vacation in Tuscany.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just returned from spending 3 weeks at Casale di Villore, we loved it so much that we have already booked for a week in October and for 3 weeks again next summer! We discovered it while on our previous visit to Castellina in Chianti, as it was recommended by a favourite vineyard of ours, Casa Emma. We booked directly with Antonio who owns the property and the process was extremely efficient. We stayed in the largest apartment, although caters for a large number, we found it excellent for 2 adults and two children as their was plenty of space. The location, between Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti is ideal, giving access to a number of major attractions throughout Tuscany. The villa is surrounded by the most beautiful views and sits in stunning gardens surrounded by olive trees and vines, a truly perfect setting.



Antonio and his family were fantastic, Antonio was always on hand to suggest places to visit, restaurants to eat at (which were always fantastic) and to answer any questions we had. I couldn't rate the service high enough.



We have booked a return visit in October to experience the area and accommodation in a different season and have booked again for another 3 weeks next summer. I highly recommended it!

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This completely and wonderfully renovated property is set in the stunning Tuscany region. Very well kept and comfortable place to stay. Close to town (2 miles) so buying groceries is easy, but far enough away from everyone else that you get that "get away" feel. The owner is very personable and was a pleasure to deal with. Only 30 minutes from Florence and easy drive to beautiful wineries. So much more comfortable than a cramped and overpriced hotel in Florence.

Casale di Villore is an amazingly beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Il Casale di Villore has amazing views and Antonio is the best host anyone could ask for. He has great knowledge of the area and keeps the place looking beautiful at all times. We stayed in the Cardisco for a week which is a perfect place for a family of 4 or 2 couples. The location is great for day trips around Tuscany and even to Pisa or Cinque Terre. Antonio also has his own Chianti Classico and Olive oil which are both wonderful. Next time I come back to Tuscany I have no doubt where I will be staying. Grazie Antionio!

beautiful, relaxing, and perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Villore was amazing. The grounds are beautiful, the pool perfect, the interiors charming, there are olive and fig and plum trees and lavender bushes everywhere, and the sunsets are an evening activity to look forward to. The views are so lovely, you don't know where to look. Wildlife is everywhere too (boar, deer, a horse next door, tiny darting lizards, bright green beetles). Antonio and his family were friendly and helpful. The central Chianti location is great for day trips to neighboring towns (and even the Tuscan coast), and I would absolutely recommend Villore to anyone, especially with children who like being outside in a beautiful place.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. A great location, very close to some great old hilltop towns, and just a short drive to both Florence and Siena. Antonio really takes care of you, from booking your tickets to the famous museums, to recommending great local spots to eat and drink. And his dog, Lela, is a wonderful pup, always excited to see you, and ready for a belly rub! Our apartment was the Prugnolo, and it was more than we could have asked for. Large, comfortable, and well furnished, it was perfect. We cannot wait to go back for an extended visit, and couldn't recommend this place more! Email Antonio today, what are you waiting for??

Beautiful Relaxing hilltop Tuscan Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As I sit here on our second to last night at Villore, I am remembering all the fond experiences of this past week. We have one more day to explore Greve in Chianti before we leave early in the morning on Saturday. Although we visited in late March, the weather was wonderful. In the mid 20's C. We stayed in Prugnolo and well worth the upgrade even though we were only two people. Lots of space to spread out. Americans, if you like extra space on vacation, I can recommend this place. Villore sits on a hilltop overlooking olive groves and vineyards just 7 km outside Poggibonsi. We did all our sightseeing of Tuscany from here. We went to San Gimignano, Volterra, Castlina di Chianti and Firenze all on day trips. We did our own cooking and took Antonio's advice on a nice local restaurant when we didn't want to cook. He helped us find PAM, the local supermarket which saved us on groceries. There you can get all your favorite cheeses and meats and that special Chianti Classico at a good price. Antonio took out a map on our second day there and proceeded to circle places to visit. Each was a charming hill town which we thoroughly enjoyed. Loved Volpaia where we enjoyed the hospitality of Paula at Bar-Uzzi. She made us welcome despite the fact she did not speak a lick of English. Food was terrific. the only complaint I had was that the nights were a little cool but then you just have to have that extra glass of Chianti and snuggle. Visit Antonio's wife's place just on the next hill at Tolciana. We visited the old church there for Mass on Sunday and enjoyed the service with 13 local members. Thanks again Antonio for a great Tuscan holiday. Dan and Patty
