The agriturissmo is an Italian Country apartment, charming and comfortable just down the road from the castle (winery). Massimo is your host and chef extraordinaire. His home is a wealth of collections and a gastronomical feast for dinner. Massimo joins you. Do not miss dinner. Do not miss the home made bread for breakfast ( not the tasteless Tuscan ).... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! We still make our own pasta once a week. We did not stay there, but Patrizia and Massimo taught us how to make Italian food....not like the restaurants., but like the Italians. Thank you.

My husband and I spent 3 days here. It was difficult to choose from so many choices in the area, but we were convinced after we checked their Facebook page and Tripadvisor comments. Patrizia and Massimo looked like the most wonderful hosts one could expect in Tuscany. Our intuition did not failed us. Their love for life is so contagious... More

After 3 days in beautiful but buzzy Florence, we were happy to stay for a couple of days in the delightful countryside of Tuscany. We were attracted by the cooking classes on offer at il castello and were not disappointed! As a family, whilst we learned hands on delicious traditional recipes, already attempted to reproduce upon return home with some... More

My husband and I just spent 4 fantastic hours in the kitchen with Patrizia and Massimo making ravioli / pesto / biscotti to name just a few items. Massimo who makes his own pancetta and capicola started us out by preparing a slow braise of beef for us to enjoy with lunch. We not only hands on participated in making... More

Can we only give 5 stars? - TripAdvisor needs a new EXCEPTIONAL CATEGORY..!! (First posted October 2012 as a restaurant-cooking class review - we still miss them) We were NOT looking for the concierge, swimming pool and big screen TV for our recent Tuscany vacation but wanted the true Agriturismo Experience and Agriturismo Castello Della Paneretta with Patrizia and Massimo...

My husband and I choose to stay at Paneretta because of the location amidst the vineyards, close to Florence, and the cooking classes offered. It turned out to be the right place for us to stay! We were welcomed by the owners Patrizia and Massimo and really felt relaxed right away. The cooking class was terrific; we not only learned... More
