A unique vacation awaits you at the Castle of Villa la Collina. Words alone cannot begin to describe the beauty of breath taking panoramic views of the Tuscany area and the well cared for grounds of Villa Collina. A feast for the eyes and the mind. And the interior of Villa Colina was magnificent. Everywhere you turn in the castle is so magnificently decorated like nothing you have ever seen before. A mixture of antiques and modern art adorn every room. Most walls are painted with murals and are so unique that you would think you were in a museum. The furnishings seem to be a well thought out collection of wonderful finds and antiques from around the world. Two pianos (one grand in the living room) and there are a few fire places throughout the castle including 3 in the master suite. The Master suite has a bedroom with fireplace, a sitting room with fireplace and another sitting room with fireplace and then the marble bathroom! Each bedroom has a theme. The master suite was The Tree of Life. The Desert Room, Flying Cup room, Horoscopy room, and the Cardinal room which has a large single bed that looks like a red Ferrari. There is even a hidden wine cellar to discover yourself when you visit Villa Collina.
A dinner is included with the rental cost and it can be served any night you would like. Everything you would want from wonderful wine from the castle vineyard, scrumptious antipasti, veal, risotto, and fresh vegetables. And to finish off the night, some fantastic desert. You can eat inside or outside with a wonderful table set with spectacular Tuscan Views.
The grounds are a wonder to look at and explore. 44 wonderful acres. Take the time to walk around the property (quite large) and enjoy the true Tuscany experience. The fountains and gardening is spectacular and are well maintained by our wonderful caretaker/friend Fernando. Fernando keeps the grounds and vineyard in wonderful shape.
The pool was a short walk from the house and it was wonderful to swim and refresh. You can bring your food and wine to the pool as there is a small building by the pool with a fridge to keep your food fresh. One person remarked as we sat pool side, “This is like staying at a world class resort.” It seemed like all the comforts of home were everywhere in the castle. You will feel relaxed and welcomed the whole time you stay at the Castle at Villa Collina. Your host, Agneta, is wonderful and very helpful. She will get you settled in and has great ideas for sightseeing and places to dine.
The town and surrounding areas to visit, the town of Poggibonsi is the perfect home base. Siena, Florence, and San Gimignano just to name a few great places to visit, are close and make great day trips although you will hate to leave your castle! Agneta has a list of great restaurants in the town of Poggibonsi and the surrounding area. Wineries are close by.

- The former owner, Countess Theo Zorzi, married to Count Franchini Stappo from Florence, painted many frescoes and wall paintings in different rooms in the years 1920. The present owner, has respectfully preserved all the beautiful works done and you can feel the original atmosphere. The bedrooms have been decorated by the present owner and each room has its own personality. Villa La Collina has its origin from 1600 and it has been transformed during the centuries and new structures have been added, as the needs of space increased and today, it is a splendid castle, situated on the top of a hill with a magnificent view in all directions, surrounded by a secular park with cypresses and the typical –bosso-, box hedges. Ponds and fountains, terraces and a protected brick wall with iron lances surrounding the castle and the park, which gives you a secure sensation of privacy and quite....moreless

My husband and I stayed at Villa La Collina September 23, 2011 for a week.
My husband and I stayed at Villa La Collina September 23, 2011 for a week.
What a pleasant surprise when we arrived at the castle! The views from all angles were breathtaking! I couldn't take enough photos. The accomadations were very comfortable, decorative and immaculate. We stayed in the desert room, just love the room descriptions. Whether it was a relaxing day at the pool, a round of golf at a nearby resort, or wine tasting and lunch at a local winery we had a wonderful time. Dinner at the castle prepared by the owner was fabulous, we were served at the back yard patio with the views of the valley at sunset. It doesn't get much better than this. We had a group of 9 family and friends and we all felt the same way! What a find! A great place to relax and site see, lots of resturants nearby or cooking your own. This place has everything you need. Arrivederci alla prossima!
