The Podere Palazzolo is more like visiting a private house than an hotel. We were apparently upgraded to our spacious and extensive first floor room with stunning views. The room itself was very comfortable and everything worked well. We had a restful night. Laura the owner and her assistant Sarah (?) were helpful and charming. We were asked in advance... More

Laura and her staff have found paradise!.... We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay in this idyllic spot with lovely views over Chianti. Our room was more than adequate with queen bed, couch, wardrobe, drawers, bedside cabinets and lamps, minibar/fridge and well appointed en-suite. The walk up the hill into town is a little energetic but if you have a... More

We stayed at Podere Palazzolo for five days in June. The villa is quite beautiful and the location and view are wonderful. It was exactly what a Tuscan villa should be like. We also liked that it was quiet and remote, perfect for a relaxed holiday. The personnel was friendly and we received a good feedback from them. We did... More

There is a nice garden overlooking the beautifull hills and vineyayards of Tuscany. There is a beautifull view of Castellina in Chianti as... More

We stayed at Podere Palazzolo for our wedding anniversary. The B&B is just outside of Castellina which is easily accessible on foot (albeit up a big hill). We really liked the B&B, it is simple accommodation but a lovely house set in a beautiful landscaped garden with lots of spots for sunbathing and reading. The only problem is everything is... More

We took a risk and booked this given the mixed reviews. It's considerably cheaper than a lot of the accommodation locally (€89/night) but I think that's reflected in the facilities. We found our room to be very hot, no air conditioning or fan, small window, no mosquito netting over the window or bed (although apparently this year has been particularly... More

When we arrived to this lovely tuscan countryside cottage we we're amazed by the view of the valley with all the vine. When we entered through the flourishing garden and we're greeted by the owner Laura, it felt like coming home. The garden and the cottage are colorful, happy and harmonic. The typical tuscan food is exraordinary and so is... More

Podere Palzzolo is set in beautiful surroundings, the scenery is truly stunning. We stayed here for five nights in June and overall had a lovely time. We found the staff to be somewhat overbearing, so if you like doing your own thing this probably isn't the place for you. The food in the evening is lovely, however the breakfast is... More

The weather was mainly cold and wet for our weeks stay, but it was warmed by the hospitality at Podere Palazzolo. The staff are all nice and helpful and the food for breakfast and dinner was delicious. The view of the hills is great. Thank you Laura for making our stay in Tuscany so special.

This is a fantastic place. The location is just outside Castellina in Chianti and the surrounding countryside is breath-taking. In the evening we would sit in the gardens and sip our wine. The staff is extremely friendly and everyone seems determined to make your stay as memorable as possible. After our arrival we were told that Superior room was available... More
