On our Tuscany Wine Tasting Experience, you will stay in Villa il Poggiale, a manor house – hotel located in the heart of Tuscany near San Casciano in Val di Pesa is listed as a ‘Historical Residence’ of Italy. This luxury Renaissance villa, is a magical place on the hills outside Florence (18 km) on the border with Chianti and tastefully restored by the owners. Villa Il Poggiale is surrounded by cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves, reminiscent of landscapes seen in Tuscan Renaissance paintings. We highly suggest this property, because guests feel like they at home and furthermore, it is the perfect location to reach the main Tuscan highlights such as Siena, San Gimignano, and of course Florence. Guests can enjoy a relaxing stay or take easy day trips to take in the art, flavors and fragrances of one of the most famous regions in the world known for its fine wines and olive oil, Chianti. Coming back “home” to Il Poggiale each evening, it’s time to relax with a dip in the pool or a drink in the rose garden.
Pisa Airport can be reached in 1 hour approx. by car.
Is it possible to provide the rental car from Florence as well ( on request), at the moment from Florence city centre, but it this case too, we will be more than happy to provide a transfer from Florence airport to Florence car rental if requested
Florence Airport can be reached in 40 minutes approx. by car.
Regarding the Wine tasting Experience with lunch, we have decided to include Podere la Marronaia. We could call it a true “love at first sight” after what happened in 2000 to Luigi Dei and Silvia Morrocchi, in front of the old ruin of the Podere Marronaia, giving life to a new project of life for them. The preference for organic farming has been present since the beginning, in the professional and life project started with the recovery of the Podere La Marronaia. The strong desire of a “return to earth”, to the slow and genuine rhythms and at the same time to open their own lives and their own project, to a tourism and a market of products aimed to people with the same values of respect for nature.
Distance from Villa il Poggiale is approx. 40 minutes drive, easy to reach by car
