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

We had a wonderful stay, delicious food and wine, everyone was so considerate, we had a beautiful room looking out over the Tuscan hills and we had a fantastic dinners outside under the stars looking across at the vineyards. We also learnt to cook pasta and gnocchi which was great fun. Thank you.

Add a Review Jun 25, 2014 Villa La Palagina When a friend of mine recommended this vacation spot to me, I was initially skeptical because I lived in Tuscany years ago, and I really didn't want to go the typical tourist route. There is nothing typical, however, about Villa La Palagina. An authentic restored villa in the Chianti region, from... More

We found this place accidentally while looking for Sting’s Winery. We were hungry and we thought we’d stop in to see if they served dinner. Boy am I glad we did! This place is so beautiful. The grounds are amazing, the staff was so friendly and helpful, and the food was some of the best we had in Italy. The... More

It was also lovely to see the food he uses... there is a large herb garden on the property, capers were drying outside, and he even picks his own ingredients. You can tell he is passionate of his...
