Beautiful, old hotel, located on the Chianti route in the middle of the Chianti region. Superb view from the terrace and pool over the valley. Very friendly and helpful staff. We did have an apartment in the casa dei frutteti (“fruit house”), and that was not well located, and had no nice view over the valley. From the terrace, we... More

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Villa La Palagina. It really is a VERY special place. A truly authentic setting with an unspoilt landscape. No accident that Sting from Police owns the Villa next door!! The accommodation, food and pool are just stunning. The highlight for us though is always Eric and his fabulous team of... More

I have just read the previous review of Palagina and am very surprised. I took ten friends from London to this hotel at the end of May to celebrate my 60th birthday. We had a wonderful time, received warm and generous hospitality and the hotel is beautiful. All the bedrooms are huge (we saw most during our stay) which directly... More

My husband and I stayed here 10 years ago and had incredibly fond memories of it vowing to come back with our kids. We did last week and it was just as I'd remembered with improvements - An addition of table tennis and bikes for hire to appeal to the family - nice. Pool, restaurant, location, everything is amazing yes,... More

This was my first holiday in Italy. I chose Tuscany because I adore the film Tea with Mussolini and wanted to visit the area, particularly San Gimignano but to make the trip doubly special, I also booked to see Andrea Bochelli on 21st July. I stayed at La Palagina as I had previously met the Director in The Bahamas last... More

If you want to experience the closest you can get to the "Tuscan Sun" choose Villa Palagina. It is perched up on a hill and has magnificent views down to the pool and out across the orchards and grape vines. It is serene. The rooms are impecably clean and the food is wonderful. We were also lucky enough to be... More

If you want a beautiful place to stay with warm hospitality this is a great option for a couple or a family. The staff is more than accommodating. The views are amazing and the location is perfect...not far from Florence. If you want a fresh taste of Tuscany...you would want to stay here.

In one word: bellissimo! Great location overlooking the olive gardens and vineyards. The hotel offers nice rooms which put you back in time and perfectly fit in the Tuscany ambiance. Breakfast is incl and has been improved i think, since it doesn't reflect the previous reviews. 2 great pools are waiting for you with comfy sun beds. At the pool... More
