My husband and I had our wedding at the villa and we could not have made a better choice on the planet! The villa and surrounding grounds are completely gorgeous and well-kept. The rooms are decorated with simplicity, elegance and old-school flair. It is rare in the modern world to find a place where one can truly escape to. This...

The villa is in a beautiful setting, situated on a quiet, olive grove-covered hillside in Scandicci. However, it is very convenient to Florence... only about a 10 minute cab ride. The accommodations are lovely, striking the perfect balance between rustic Tuscan charm and modern convenience (see picture). And the service is outstanding. Overall, the villa exceeded my expectations... I'd go...

I normally do not write reviews for any place I stay but this place was particulary special and deserved special mention. I came with my family to attend a wedding at this lovely villa. The apartment suites were gorgeous and the setting was beautiful! The guests that stayed here ranged from a six-month old to an 80-year old and everyone...

My wife & I just returned from our wedding week at Villa Poggio ai Merli. We could not have picked a better location. From the moment we chose the villa, the staff promptly and tirelessly helped us with catering, local tours, room assignment, photography, flowers, ceremony setup, driving directions, and countless other details for the wedding week. When we and...

The Villa Poggio ai Merli, a brilliant restoration of a renaissance villa, sits on a hill outside of Florence. We spent a marvelous week there in July, and despite the heat in Florence, there was always a cool breeze blowing through our apartment. A very POSH apartment I might add. It was perfect for a family - downstairs living room/kitchen...

We stayed at Villa Poggio for three days during June, and it was a great experience. Stayed in a separate apartment that had a bedroom, living room with sleeper sofa and a full size kitchen. The place was immaculately clean and the rooms were very spacious, especially by European standards. The staff were more than willing to help with recommendations...
