Fattoria La Palazzina is quintessential Tuscany. The location is perfect--close to everything, but far enough away that you get a real Tuscany experience. The home is elegant and beautiful; the food delicious; and the service unforgettable thanks to the tireless effort of its owner Silvano.
Silvano has been in the Hotel business for a long time and he has a genuine passion for his job. He cares deeply about your experience and goes out of his way to make sure you are taken care of. My wife and I had our anniversary while there and before diner Silvano set up a private table overlooking the rolling hills of the Tuscan landscape. He then proceeded to bring out a complimentary bottle of Champagne, prosciutto wrapped melon and bruschetta. The strange thing for us Americans was that Silvano cared less about his bottom line and more about our experience at Fattoria La Pallazzina. He truly made you feel special.
We spent four days with Silvano and missed his hospitality as we continued throughout Italy. After we left, anytime we had a good day or saw something amazing we would say "AWWWW Beni Beni" in the mannerisms of Silvano, who would say this to us after we recited to him our days events in Tuscany.
We have vowed to one day return. It was an unforgettable experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

A circular garden adorns the entrance, once utilized as a bird trap for hunting purposes.
