Art & History

La Poggiolaia is an elegant hilltop farmstead, strategically positioned in the middle of the Golden Triangle - Florence, Siena and Pisa.La Poggiolaia (literally "hill of olives") takes its name from the vast groves of olive trees that surround it in every direction, and will impress its guests with stunning views of the gentle rolling hills that lead to the ancient towers of San Gimignano.
The green-grey of olives blends with the dark green of cypresses, creating a spectacular show of colours.
Our guests are free to stroll through the olive groves and adjacent vineyards, and sample the Chianti wines and olive oil produced by the family-owned farm named Tenuta Della Luia.

Villa La Poggiolaia has 4 comfortable, elegant apartments and a lovely Capanna - a former barn transformed into a characteristic country house.
Every window of each villa lodging produces an incomparable view of the surrounding landscape.
Each apartment has been meticulously renovated and personally furnished by the owners with precious original art and antiques in combination with all modern conveniences.
Amenities include air conditioning (although you'll rarely need it, as the hilltop location allows for maximum circulation of Tuscan breezes) and a magnificent Mediterranean style swimming pool with roman steps, perfect for an impromtu wine tasting or wiling away late summer afternoons with a favorite novel.
La Poggiolaia is the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. At walking distance there are a family-owned Tuscan Restaurant, a mini-market, and one of the oldest churches of the region.
Just a few miles down the hill there is Certaldo Alto, the picturesque, walled medieval hilltop town renowned for being the birthplace of the poet and writer Giovanni Boccaccio, the author of the Decameron.
For longer day trips and lovers of the Italian Renaissance, Florence, Volterra, Siena and Pisa are all within one hour driving distance.

All the apartments have retained a charming ancient character due to the original antique furniture: Roseto, Lavanda, Mahonia, Nandina and Capanna.
Kitchens are equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and embellished with precious marbles.
As with the exterior, all the original materials have been preserved or harmoniously matched with contemporary equivalents during the restoration that some years ago converted this grand Villa into six apartments.
