We can be heroes, just for one day!

The Chianti area is not only famous  for its eno-gastronomical products, art and history.

One of the most exciting activity is definitely cycling : sweet hills marked by sinuous roads, ancient landscapes drawn by history, an ideal frame for a journey which rediscover the gestures that still inspire the most famous cycling race in Tuscany: the "Eroica".

Discover this unique territory with us thanks to this customized offer for those who like wandering the world on two wheels.

Live, discover, love.

Villa il Poggiale is located in the heart of a gorgeous area. You can reach unique locations like Piazzale Michelangelo, to admire Florence in a memorable glance. Or Chianti’s medieval villages, suspended in a magical time and immersed in fairytale landscapes.

Local Friends.

Upon your arrival everything you need to plan your bike trips will be ready. We will be happy to share our knowledge of the territory, giving you tips and suggestions that only locals can offer. You will also find detailed information such as maps, guidebooks and useful numbers.

Perfect start.

It's important to start a "heroic day" with a breakfast at the height of the streets you are going to climb: vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, water, fruit juices: choose from our rich buffet what's more aligned with your ideal diet.

Let's Drive.

Come with me for a memorable ride: my name is Marco, I'm a tour guide and part of the staff at Villa il Poggiale.

I will guide you first to a local winery, to enjoy the eno-gastronomical excellence that makes us famous all over the world.

We can then head for a typical trattoria, for an authentic Tuscan lunch, or to stop for a small break along the road.

If you don’t feel fit enough for the enterprise, do not worry… we are ready with our e-bikes:  electric bikes that allow you to travel many miles, even uphill, without pedaling.

Deserved Relax.

My name is Patricia and I am the therapist of Villa il Poggiale. I think  a vacation is made of course of action, adventure and discovery. But also Relax.

When you'll return to the Villa, reach the Wellness Area.: I will accompany you on a wellness path designed for you: a scrubbing herbal tea, a short relaxing massage, a sauna and a hydromassage.

Pleasure, without regrets.

To refresh yourself we created a menu based on the Tuscan cuisine tradition, with an eye on lightness and health:  everything is prepared using local and seasonal ingredients; vegetables come from our organic garden, cheese is from the farm and meat from the local butcher.

Ending in Beauty.

Get ready for the Poggiale experience: a spacious and comfortable room is awaiting for giving you a perfect rest. Exquisite fabrics from Tuscan manufactures, furnishing by our craftsmen, soft and cozy colors.
Sweet dreams!
