Just outside Fiano and down the dirt road in the midst of wine and olive fields is where you might be so lucky to find Il Paluffo and your most memorable accommodation in Tuscany. The buildings are well preserved and charming, and the entire place so full of history, which will be generously shared with you when welcomed. The double... More

We spent three nights at Il Paluffo and wished we had planned to stay longer. The property is absolutely beautiful. The building is unique with its history and charm. The rooms are even better than the pictures show. Federica was an amazing hostess and the lady who looks after the breakfast was fantastic. The views from the terrace are breathtaking.

We stayed in the Liberty Room at Il Paluffo for one night in Sep 2014 for a wedding nearby and loved every minute of it. The staff is welcoming and professional, and the accommodations are clean, beautiful, and well cared for. It reminded us of a cozy hunting lodge. The hotel offers maps with two different hikes around the area,... More

We decided to stop at Il Paluffo for three nights, Sep. '14. Great experience, the resort is in the heart of Chianti valley, within an extremely quiet surrounding. The right place to be if you are looking for an exclusive time of relax, chill out and cultural / historical discovery of Tuscany. We lodged in the Yellow Room as well... More

We stayed at Il Paluffo as part of our honeymoon. The location in the Tuscan countryside is great, the views of the hills are outstanding. The villa itself and swimming pool are also beautiful. We recommend the pasta lesson and wine tasting lesson! The service was excellent. Bring cash in case you want to buy any wine, olive oil etc... More

We stayed in the fabulous Torre house for a week and loved it. It was so tranquil with beautiful views across the Tuscan hills. Perfect for a family. Pool lovely but need trips to beach (about an hour away) for children. Great location for visiting all the famous towns of Tuscany. Very helpful and friendly hosts that make you feel... More

Beautiful gardens, unique pool with unbelievable views, delightfully comfortable beds and a tastefully decorated mix of original and modern. Stayed here a while ago for our wedding and this place has obviously made an impression, as it's still on my mind! Me and my husband can't wait to return!

This place is very recommmendable, if you want a quite hide away and a perfectstarting point to visit the highlights of Touristic Tuscany. The breakfast is lovely and can bebooked on top offf a self catering appartment. In summer a B&B room will probably be just as nice as the weatheer will make you live outdoors or make you chill...
